World Chambers Competition FAQ
Can you provide me with guidelines?
The Competition guidelines are available on the Competition website under the GUIDELINES tab.
What is the deadline to submit my project?
Applications for the 2015 Competition are now closed. Applications for the 2017 Competition will open shortly.
What are the required formats of the application?
You are required to fill in contact information, information about your chamber, and select a category into the online form. At the bottom you upload the project synopsis in a PDF format, and your logo and pictures in any image format.
Can I submit two projects in different categories?
No, a chamber can only submit one project per Competition.
Can I include an appendix?
In case you have letters of support, articles, or other items you would like the judges to see, you may include them in an appendix. The appendix cannot exceed 10 pages. Please note: the appendix is optional.
What is the maximum length for the appendix?
The maximum length of the appendix is 10 pages. The maximum length of the project synopsis is 10 pages. Therefore, your final document cannot exceed 20 pages. Also, you are not allowed to shift your page limits (i.e., 12 pages for the appendix and 8 pages for the project synopsis)
Do I have to translate documents of support?
You don’t have to translate documents of support included the appendix in full. A short description box covering the title and a sentence or two on the articles/letters would suffice.
When will the finalists for each category be chosen?
The final five finalists for each category will be announced a few months before the Competition presentation in September 2017. A specific date will be confirmed shortly.
How and where will I present my project as a finalist?
You will present your project during the 10th World Chambers Congress in Sydney, Australia, 19-21 September 2017.
Does WCF cover travel expenses to the Congress?
No, you will have to cover your own travel expenses to the Congress. However, the presenter’s registration fee will be covered.
