  • March Madness For Creatives is structured over four rounds, each with a distinct design challenge, from footwear to apparel. Here’s how it unfolds:

    Unlimited Participants: Any number of students from each participating university can enter the contest. The more, the merrier.

    Multiple Submissions Allowed: Each participant can submit up to three designs per round, maximizing their chances to showcase creativity and gather votes for their school.

    Competition Structure: Schools go head-to-head in each round, with the collective votes on their students’ designs determining which school advances.

    Voting and Points: Voting is open to everyone, not just participants. Encourage friends and family to support your designs with likes, boosting your school's chance to win. Every legitimate vote counts!

    Advancement and Winning: Advancement is based on the total points a school accumulates from likes across all submissions. The school with the highest points at the end of the final round claims victory, with the top five contributors receiving a share of the grand prize.
