What happens after an entry is submitted?
After you submit an entry, the entry status on your Submission Dashboard will change from "Draft" to "Submitted." An email confirming the submission will also be sent to the submitter's email address. If you do not receive this confirmation, check your spam folder and contact NIHCM as needed.
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 elements are present and legible. 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 your submission will be forwarded to our judges.
The judges select finalists by mid March, and all entrants will be notified of the finalist decision shortly thereafter. The winning paper will be selected by our judges in April and announced in a press release.
