The author's organization, name (including English or Pinyin abbreviation) or any icon, graphic and other information related to the author's identity must not appear on the layout, otherwise it will be considered invalid. The registration form is generated directly by the webpage. After completing the relevant information, the contestant can save the registration form and download it. If the information is found to be incorrect after downloading the registration form, for example, if the team member changes, you cannot directly modify the information on the registration form, but you need to modify it in the submission system, then re-download the registration form, and finally submit the registration form.

There are several cases in which entries are returned:

(1). The entries do not meet the requirements of the competition. The main performance is that the layout of the exhibition panels is not standardized. For example, there is only one product alone, and there is no other product exploded view and any text description; or the file size is too small (less than 1M) ); or the picture mode error displays the black and white color effect picture; or the participant's personal or unit information and icons appear on the effect chart.

(2). The picture of the exhibition board and the registration form file are not displayed. This may be because the entrant did not upload successfully due to the network speed during the uploading process.

(3). The registration form is forgotten to upload, or the registration form is uploaded and displayed as garbled status (generally due to the speed problem not uploaded completely).

(4). The project plan is forgotten to upload. When participants participate in the concept group, if they choose to participate in the business incubation group, they need to supplement the upload project proposal. You can download the project plan template in the Submission Instructions in the investment system, fill in the correct and detailed requirements and upload in time.


        3. There is no need to add additional work number and contest title.

This competition does not require participants to add the work number and the title of the competition to the layout of the work. The work number will be automatically generated by the submission system into the entry layout, and the participants can make the exhibition board according to the requirements of the entry.

        4. It is not allowed to submit the same work multiple times or to submit to other categories for repeated submission.

Therefore, the same entry is submitted multiple times in the category application number, or at the same time in other entry category application numbers, these circumstances are not allowed. Including some entries have been returned for revision, and some contestants may apply for another entry number to upload, which will cause confusion to the contest staff.
