I remember seeing in some previous driven data competition, that only US citizens were eligible to win a prize. Is there any such restriction in this competition? Specifically, I am an Indian citizen, so wanted to confirm if Indians are eligible to win prizes in this competition? Would be really helpful, if the organizers can confirm.
Hi @devnikhilmishra, this competition’s rules page has the following section about eligibility:
The Competition is open to all natural persons who, at the date of entry, are a legal resident of a country, state, province or territory within the Territory and at least eighteen years of age and the age of majority in their jurisdiction of residence. Legal entities and organizations are not eligible for entry. There is no purchase or donation necessary to enter the Competition.
Officers, directors, employees and advisory board members (and their immediate families and members of the same household) of the Competition Sponsor, DrivenData and their respective affiliates, subsidiaries, contractors, agents, judges and advertising and promotion agencies and any family member or member of the same household (whether or not related) of any such persons are not eligible to win a prize in this Competition. For purposes of this Competition, the term “family member” is defined as any spouse, partner, parent, legal guardian, child, sibling, grandparent, grandchild, or in-law.
For the purposes of this Competition, the “Territory” means any country, state, province, territory, region, or jurisdiction where the laws of the United States or local law do not prohibit participating or receiving a prize in the Competition and excludes any area or country designated by the United States Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control.
There is not a restriction to only residents of the United States.
thank you @jayqi for the quick and helpful response
