The award certificate will include the names of the other team members, e.g., “Heo Nanseolheon and 2 others (Yoon Dong-ju, Lee Hyoseok).” Issues related to the storage of the award certificate and the distribution of the prize money among team members are the responsibility of the entrants.

If such an entry is discovered after being selected for an award, the award will be canceled, and measures will be taken to recoup prize money.
