Information for All Competitors

  1. Please help judge! As a competitor, your judging assignments are the absolute minimum you should be doing to help out. As second rounds, third rounds and finals have no assigned judges, we really need people to help out whenever available for these. If you are directly asked to judge, please go and judge for the remainder of the round in progress. If you do not comply then we are within our rights to disqualify you from the competition as per Regulation 1e2. If you're a parent you can also get involved with running and judging, it's really easy!
  2. Please note that Carbon-Fiber puzzles are not permitted, and please make sure your cube complies with logo regulations!
  3. When you are competing and have handed in your puzzle, please make sure to be waiting in the designated area so that judges and runners do not have to come searching for you.
  4. Please DO NOT talk about the scrambles or your solutions whilst the round is in progress as per Regulation 2g3.
  5. During blindfolded events, please stay silent within the venue. These events require a high amount of concentration and any noise can be distracting. We will announce when the silence will begin and when you may talk within the venue again.
  6. No flash photography under any circumstance within the venue. It is extremely distracting for competitors.
  7. If you are a spectator, please stay 1.5m away from competitors at all times as per Regulation 7b. If you are filming someone competing, please stay out of the competitor area.
