Moderation of entries

  • How are entries moderated?
    All entries must go through a moderation process to ensure they are eligible and within the context of the competition. Important things to look out for include mandatory items and files, respect of copyright issues and in general, compliance with the terms and conditions of the inGenious competition.

  • How long can it take before my entry is moderated? What happens next?
    Moderation of entries is an ongoing process that is carried out from September 2013 until the end of the competition. This process can take some time - please be patient.
    As soon as an entry is successfully moderated, the participant will receive a confirmation e-mail, the entry will appear in the gallery of entries, and the participant will be invited to download his/her certificate of participation under 'My entries'.

  • What happens if my entry is rejected? Do I have to submit everything all over again?
    If an entry fails to pass moderation, a notification e-mail will be sent to the participant. The exact reason leading to this decision will be described in ‘My entries’. Participants can then edit and resubmit the entry (no need to enter the information all over again).

Evaluation of entries

  • How are entries evaluated?
    All entries will be evaluated by a panel of education experts, with primary and secondary level education evaluated separately. Evaluations will be carried out in three rounds through a language-based evaluation, European expert pre-selection, and European grand Jury. Further details can be found in the guidelines for users.

  • Under what criteria are entries evaluated?
    Evaluations will be carried out according to the following criteria:
    Impact of the actions undertaken by teachers and pupils. Judges will be looking for evidence of successful knowledge transfer.
    Relevance of the actions designed and implemented within the campaign. Contributions should demonstrate a clear link to the competition’s requirements. Moreover, the jury will also consider if the actions undertaken are compatible with pupils’ age-group.
    Clarity of ideas and conclusions, explaining and addressing the campaign in a clear way, demonstrating a good understanding of the theme and conveying convincing implementation methods, solutions and messages.
    Sustainability of actions and methodologies proposed, independent of external input, will be considered based on their long-term impact (e.g. curricula integration).
    Transferability of actions and methodologies proposed: projects are identified according to their applicability to different cultural and geographical contexts.
    Stakeholder involvement such as local SME’s, industry experts, local authorities and sponsors who may help achieve project objectives.
    Effective communication of the project and its results.
    Presentation of entries, aesthetics, style, layout, design and good use of technology will be considered.
    Originality of entries, pertinence, novelty, creativity and didactical approach, will all be taken into account during the evaluation process.
