Completed personal questionnaires and video messages prepared by participants sharing about their professional careers will be evaluated at selection. The members of the committee will pay particular attention to the portfolio of the participants, the complexity/professionalism of creations, as well as the commitment and the extent to which a person strives to become a winner.
12 consultants are expected to join the contest (1 from each field) to prepare the further assignments for the participants and to land a helping hand to the participants in completing the tasks.
