The “Universiday.it” contest promoted by RCS Mediagroup S.p.A. (RCS) is solely for students attending universities in Milan. The contest is for users who have registered on the Universiday.it website (“Site”) before or within the duration of the contest, and have provided the personal information requested in the registration form in a correct, true, and complete manner according to the registration procedures (“Registration”). Correct username and email address are necessary on the on-line registration form in order to participate in the contest (“Participating Users”).
Participating users can submit a creative project in one of the 5 categories proposed on the Site: music, photography, urban art, writing and videomaking (“The project”). The project must be uploaded according to the technical conditions provided by the Site. Specifically, each project must be related to the use and the expression of the specific creative languages for each category, according to the requirements at www.universiday.it/contest, and with the methods and tools that are appropriate for the purpose. The Project must be uploaded on www.universiday.it/contest within the duration period of the contest and in the required format. RCS has the right to suspend projects if they are deemed indecorous or immoral or violate the rules of the contest (“Nonstandard project”). If a registered user uploads a video that is then rejected, it is still possible to take part in the contest by submitting another project that is consistent with the contest’s rules. All of the participating users who have uploaded a project that has been deemed acceptable according to the terms and conditions of the contest will then be added to the list for the final selection (“List of Participants”).
All registered users can express their preferences by voting for their favorite published projects from 05/06/15 to 05/20/15. The five most voted projects for each category by registered users will be included in a shortlist of the best works. In addition to this, a quality jury chosen by RCS will select from among all of the projects another 5 for each category. The 5 projects identified by the jury will be part of the final shortlist together with the 5 projects most voted by the community. For each category, the shortlist will therefore be composed of 5 projects selected by community votes and 5 projects selected by the quality jury. From these shortlists for each category, the quality jury will then indisputably identify 3 projects (for each category) whose authors will be invited to perform in the final event. According to the performances during this event, the jury will select the final winners of the contest. The Registered User who is the author of the Selected Project will have access to the awards related to the specific category, listed on www.universiday.it/contest/awards in recognition of the creation of the Selected Project (the "Award"). Recognition will be given to the Winning Participant only after:
