What happens after an entry is submitted?
After you submit an entry, you will see the entry status on your Submission Dashboard change from "Draft" to "Submitted." You will also receive a confirmation email stating that the entry has been submitted. (The confirmation email will be sent to the entrant's email address.)
If you submit a draft in error or find that you need to revise an entry after it has been submitted, please contact NIHCM at 202-296-4426 or firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
NIHCM staff will review your submission to ensure that the necessary parts are present. If anything is amiss, the status of the entry on your Submission Dashboard will change to "Under Review," and someone from NIHCM will contact you to resolve the issue.
If the entry is complete, the dashboard status will change to "Accepted," and then it's on to judging.
The judges select finalists by mid March and all entrants will be notified of the finalist decision shortly thereafter. The winners will be selected by our judges in April and announced in a press release.
