The waitlist for this competition can be viewed here.

Only competitors who have paid have been added to the waitlist.

If WAITLISTED for Comp A:

  • If you are accepted to Comp B,
    • You may delete your Comp A registration and be issued a full refund for that registration. (Delegates can also do this for you on your behalf)
    • You may remain on the Comp A waitlist (i.e., you prefer Comp A). If you move up the Comp A waitlist enough, the Delegates may ask you which comp you prefer and allow you to choose.
      • Please email the Delegates using the “Contact” link on the competition website to let them know your preference.
  • If you are also waitlisted to Comp B,
    • You may opt to stay on both waitlists until you are accepted to one of them. If accepted to one, you may delete your registration to the other and receive a full refund.

If ACCEPTED to Comp A:

  • If you are accepted to Comp B,
    • Your Comp B registration will be ACCEPTED and your registration for Comp A will be moved from ACCEPTED to the WAITLIST. This is because by choosing to register for Comp B, you are indicating to the organizers and Delegates you would prefer Comp B over Comp A even after being previously accepted to Comp A.
    • You may delete your Comp A registration and be issued a refund per the comp policy. (Delegates can also do this for you on your behalf)
  • If you are waitlisted to Comp B,
    • You may opt to stay on the Comp B waitlist to see if you are eventually accepted (i.e., you prefer Comp B). If you move up the Comp B waitlist enough, the Delegates may ask you which comp you prefer and allow you to choose. If accepted, you may delete your Comp A registration and receive a refund per the comp policy.
      • Please email the Delegates using the “Contact” link on the competition website to let them know your preference.
