The Tag Challenge 2012 Competition Terms and Conditions
1.1 This is your chance to make your idea a reality and meet some of the top business brains in Scotland. This isn’t just about websites or apps, although we love a bit screen tech. This could be about a new physical tech product or even something robotic.
2.1 The Competition is open to all persons who on the date of entry are aged 16 and over.
2.2 Competition entries submitted to the Competition must come from a mixed discipline team that is made up of:-
2.2.1 at least one individual who on the date of entry is ordinarily resident* in Scotland;
2.2.2 at least one small, medium or large business in an industry outside the Creative Industries, that is, from the Aerospace, Defence and Marine; Chemical Sciences; Technology; Construction; Energy; Financial Services; Food and Drink; Forest and Timber Technologies; Life Sciences; Manufacturing; Textiles; or Tourism sectors (for information on these sectors please refer to www.scottishenterprise.com),
and must include the Original Author (as defined in the Competition Licence) of each piece of Work (as defined in the Competition Licence) in the team’s entry.
2.3 Attending a DesignCamp is the easiest way to team up with the right kind of business from outside the Creative Industries. Competition entries that do not come from a team that complies with clause 2.2 will not be eligible to win the Competition.
3. Application Process
3.1 Applicant teams must provide a completed application form including, without limitation, an outline of their idea. In completing the application applicant teams should, except where not relevant to their idea, include the following information and answers to the following questions:-
• Tell us the name of your product or service along with a compelling tag line: tell us what you do, for whom, in what context.
• Tell us about the potential user of your product or service and their journey from discovery of your product or service through to using it and having their problem solved.
• What’s their current ‘pain’ in achieving something, and how do you solve that pain to make life easier / cheaper / happier for them? What added benefit to you provide? If you can, tell us a real story that backs this up in less than 60 seconds.
• If you’re a Business-To-Business product or service, get specific in your definition of customers and provide a list of actual customers you have approached or will approach to sell your product or service.
• What do your customers tell their friends your product does? What “word of mouth” qualities do you have?
• Tell us who is not your customer.
• Show us that you have limited your focus. Which ideas have been discarded to get to this one?
• Quantify the value that you bring to the user, and how does this relate to your company vision and product tagline?
• You do have competition. Find who they are and tell us what your competitive value proposition is.
• Are you at risk of having your product copied? Can the competition leapfrog you technologically or with marketing, before you’ve had a chance to make iteration one, two or three? Tell us how you are going to avoid that happening.
• Marketing and route to market: How are you going to make sure that people know you exist?
What social and traditional tools do you feel are going to bring you best value?
What does your industry partner already bring to the mix?
• How do you make money?
What is the price of your product? Why is this the pricing point?
4. Entry Deadline
4.1 The deadline for submission of Competition entries is 5pm GMT on 19th March 2012.
5.1 After the Competition deadline is up, we will be narrowing the long list of ideas down to a shortlist of up to 12 ideas, which will be taken to the judging panel.
5.2 This shortlist will be subject to the decision of a team made up of representatives from NoTosh Limited, a company registered in Scotland with Company Number SC370379 and having its registered office at 27 Lauriston Street, Edinburgh EH3 9DQ and We Are Snook Limited, a company registered in Scotland with Company Number SC373366 and having its registered office at 26 Portland Road, Kilmarnock KA1 2EB based on the idea pitch submitted and, where applicable, the impressions of a team’s ability to take forward an idea from the DesignCamps.
5.3 The following criteria will be used to assess the ideas with scores out of 10 being applied:
• Genuine market need (user quantitative and qualitative value)
Quality of direct route to market (thanks to partner);
• Uniqueness to market – satisfactory differentiation from the other entrants;
• User journey;
• Feasibility of delivering a prototype within the time and budget constraints of the likely next stage of investment (i.e. low level, tight times), and
• Business model – pricing.
5.4 The final decision of the prize winner(s) is that of the judging panel.
5.5 In the case of a deadlock in the judging panel, the Scottish Enterprise representatives on the judging panel will make the final decision.
