Q&A

  • How many entries can I submit?

    As many as you want.
    However, you can only upload a maximum of 5 entries at one time on the upload screen. If you wish to submit more than 5 entries, re-enter personal information and repeat the application process in multiples of 5 until all your entries have been submitted.

  • I am a minor. Can I enter?

    Yes. We accept applications regardless of applicants' age, gender, nationality, etc. Minors are required to obtain the consent of a legal representative to participate.

  • Can we enter as a group or company? If yes, how do we fill out the entry form?

    Yes. Enter under the name of the person who is representing or leading your group/company. Please ensure everyone who contributes to the design reads and agrees to the Rules For Entry.

  • Can I use an artwork shown at an exhibition?

    We're afraid you can not. Each submission must be newly developed by the applicant exclusively for UTGP 2022, and must never have been published previously.
