Welcome To Spark! We hope you’ll join our community, submit some hot, world-changing designs and do some serious Sparking. We are developing lots of new programs, working directly with many colleges and universities—and hope to work with yours. Please alert your faculty to our competition—we’ll set up a cooperation to make things easier.
Regarding your Spark entries for this semester, please note a few things—first, entry fees go up, the longer you wait to submit. So get online and get registered. Don’t worry, you can make changes to your submitted designs right up until the Finalist judging.
Second point—before calling or emailing with a question, read everything in the Call For Entry section of this website. You’ll usually find the answer there, and save us all the time and expense of a call.
Finally, for added fun, value and history—document your work process. Try every media, from taking careful notes, to Twits, Flickr-ish sites and of course video. (It can also be helpful evidence in IP disputes.) And your mom will enjoy seeing you on YouTube!
IMPORTANT NOTES FOR KOREAN STUDENTS:
The webmail services NAVER and HANMAIL frequently block communications from international organizations. That means we cannot contact entrants with important news, such as Winners results. It is very important that you set up an international email account for this reason. Try Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, etc. They have proven successful for our entrants.
IMPORTANT NOTE FOR ALL ENTRANTS: IF YOU ARE ASKING SPARK A QUESTION, ALWAYS PUT YOUR NAME, DESIGN NAME AND ORGANIZATION OR SCHOOL IN THE EMAIL. IF YOU HAVE AN ENTRY OR REGISTRATION PROBLEM, INCLUDE A SCREENSHOT OF THE ERROR MESSAGE, TOO.
