1. One designer can submit several themes, however, if his/her works win more than 1 prize in the first, second or third prizes, he/she will only get the highest prize he/she wins.
2. Most Popular Award and Designer Award are 2 independent awards so winner of first, second or third prize can have these 2 awards too. However, if these 2 awards are given to the same person, he/she will only receive one MEIZU Flow Earphones.
3. If a designer wins a prize, and his recommendation also wins, he will only get the higher prize of the 2 prizes, however, we will send a MEIZU Flow earphones along as compensation.
