  • By taking part in this event, participants agree to abide by all relevant laws and regulations of the People’s Republic of China and the event’s host countries, and agree to refrain from publishing or uploading any illegal information of a political, pornographic, or violent nature or which may be deemed to support terrorism. Any works violating the applicable laws and regulations, or which the event’s organizer deems to be disruptive to public social order and morality, will be immediately disqualified from the event without recourse.

  • Submissions that fail to comply with event rules will not be eligible for selection. If such works are selected, they may be subsequently disqualified at any time. Organizers reserve the right to revoke any awards, compensation, certificates, or other benefits awarded in connection with such works and to publish notice of said actions on their websites or other public media.

  • All entrants agree that all photograph(s) submitted to the competition may be reproduced (with photographer copyright credit) and used to conduct and promote this and future competitions.

  • All information displayed on OPPO Creators Awards website is protected by international copyright law. Under copyright laws, the propagation of any material or content therein (including by reproducing, modifying, uploading, posting, transmitting, distributing, licensing, selling, or publishing said content) without express written permission from its owner is prohibited, with the sole exception of personal and non-commercial uses.

  • You understand that you use or browse the event website at your own risk. Neither OPPO nor any of its sponsors, event sponsors, or third party partners and affiliates that participate in the creation, production, or delivery of the website shall be held liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, or punitive damages sustained while visiting, using or browsing, or downloading information, data, text, audio, or photography and other images from, the website.

Upon being contacted, you must submit the original file for your submission, fill in your personal information as requested, submit your declaration of copyright and authorization as well as any other documents requested, and sign and mail physical copies of the above to the event organizer. Failure to submit all required documents within the specified time limit or the submission of documents which do not meet the event organizer’s requirements will be interpreted as a relinquishment of your eligibility, upon which your position on the list of winners will be awarded to the next-ranking event participant.

  • By participating in this event, you agree and acknowledge that all personal information you submit is true and accurate, including your name, phone number, email address, and any other contact addresses you provide for the purposes of communication about awards. The event organizer will only use your personal information for the above purposes and within the extent permitted by the applicable privacy laws. Upon announcing awards, the event organizer will contact all winners to verify that the personal information they used to register for the event is complete and accurate. If incomplete information prevents the sponsor from delivering an award to its winner, the award will automatically be considered waived and will not be reissued.

  • In cases where an award cannot be delivered due to causes originating with the winner (including but not limited to failure to provide contact information within three days of the conclusion of the event or submission of incomplete or inaccurate contact information that prevents the organizer from establishing contact) the award will automatically be considered waived. The sponsor assumes no responsibility for any such outcome and will not reissue awards in such cases. Upon receiving their awards, winners will be expected to confirm completion of delivery by notifying the distributor directly, except where abnormal circumstances prevent this. Except in cases of gross or malicious negligence on the part of the sponsor, the sponsor shall not be liable for any accidents or damages suffered by winners relating to the use or receipt of awards.

  • Awards may not be exchanged for cash. If unforeseen circumstances prevent distribution of an award, the organizer reserves the right to issue an equivalent award in its place. Replacement awards may not be exchanged for cash. The grand prize of 7,500 USD will be delivered by bank wire transfer only, and any applicable banking fees will be paid by the winner according to the relevant regulations in the winner’s country of residence.

  • Pictures of awards are provided for reference only, and actual awards may vary. In cases where awards exhibit quality problems, recipients should contact the award item’s manufacturer or designated distributor and follow the relevant policies for return, replacement, and/or maintenance. Except in cases where the sponsor is the award item’s original manufacturer, the sponsor shall not be liable for any quality problems.

  • Award recipients shall bear full responsibility for any personal income taxes incurred with their awards. The event’s sponsors shall bear full responsibility for any domestic or international shipping charges incurred by the delivery of awards.
