Step 1: Getting Started

Also new this year...a brand new submission platform! One place for you to manage your competition submission and stay in contact with us. Complete this short Interest Form and we’ll send you all the competition details with instructions for accessing the new platform. Get started today! Deadline December 15th.

Step 2: Submit Your Abstract

An abstract is required for every type of article submission; even if you are preparing a video submission, a written abstract is required. The abstract (800-1000 words) should be an 'executive summary' describing your topic, what you plan to present and the potential conclusions to be drawn from article.


As part of the nomination process, all abstracts are vetted for originality and technical substance. Abstract authors will be notified by mid-late December whether their abstract has been selected to move onto the article phase.

Step 3: Submit Your Article

Participants whose abstracts have been selected will have 8 weeks from notification to complete their Knowledge Sharing submission. Authors will be notified by late March as to their publication status. Finalists will also be identified at that time, with the winners being announced in May 2016.
