DISCLAIMER: Plagiarism of any or all of these terms and conditions will result in legal action
All Entries must be submitted in English and are subject to any stated requirements as to length and format.
For the avoidance of doubt, for each Competition no Entry will be reviewed by the Genera team prior to the Competition End Date.
The Genera team will select up to twenty (20) Entries, that they determine most successfully satisfy the applicable Judging Criteria (the "Shortlisted Entries"), to submit to a panel of independent experts in film production for judging (the "Panel"). Successful and unsuccessful filmmakers will be notified of the team's selection of Shortlisted Entries no later than fourteen (14) days after the end of the applicable Competition entry period. Genera may at its sole discretion cancel, withhold or postpone naming any Shortlisted Entries, if, in the sole discretion of Genera, the quality of the Entries is sufficiently poor, or for any other reason, without prior notice and without any liability whatsoever.
The filmmaker of each Shortlisted Entry may be invited to submit additional information and materials for consideration by the Panel, including but not limited to:
Such information and materials must be submitted no later than three (3) days after being requested. The Panel will select up to five winning entries from amongst the Shortlisted Entries, based on the applicable Judging Criteria. The filmmakers of the applicable Shortlisted Entries will be notified promptly after a decision is made. The filmmakers of winning Entries ("Winners") may be obligated to agree to additional conditions prior to being awarded the applicable Grant. All decisions made by the Genera team and the Panel are at their respective sole discretion, final and binding and cannot be contested or disputed. No correspondence will be entered into by Genera or any member of the Panel regarding any decision or feedback on any Entry.
Each Winner will be awarded an amount up to a maximum of £5,000.00, payable within thirty (30) days of being named a Winner, for use in the development of the winning project. The Prize cannot be transferred or assigned except with the express written consent of Genera. Each Winner shall have the sole responsibility for payment of any taxes, duties, charges or levies to be paid to any third party in connection with any money received in connection with a Competition. While Genera does not specify how specifically each Winner is to spend its Grant, Genera reserves the right to conduct a reasonable review of how Grants are spent to ensure that they are spent reasonably and in connection with the winning project. Each Winner shall provide Genera free of charge one (1) copy of the trailer, finished film and artwork, solely for Genera's record-keeping and other internal purposes.
