Therefore, the dreams will be public and they can be shared on social networks and voted (liked) on the website. Not in any way will the voting (or “likes”) affect the judgement of the Scholarship Committee, as scholarship eligibility criteria are only based on merit. Candidates who are assigned a scholarship will then be reported on the public “The One’s” web gallery. Materials submitted may not contain people and/or images and/or contents which are or could be considered offensive, illegal and/or immoral, nor sexually suggestive materials which promote, also potentially, offensive, profane, violent, obscene, or hate speech based upon the race and/or sex of an individual or group. The rights of use for iconographic materials are considered property of the Candidate. All accompanying texts in the project (the profile description and the phrase that summarises dreams and expectations) shall be written in English.
