Follow every requirement during the entire process--before, during and after--including project guidelines, photos, written portion of your entry, deadlines, entry method (mail, online, etc.) and anything else stipulated by the sponsor. If you need clarification on any points you may call the sponsor's marketing/PR department and ask to speak with a contest organizer/representative about rules clarification . . .
