As a general rule, award-winning prices are planned to be marketed.
When doing so, some time is required in most cases for alterations, as well as for rights related procedures, such as those for design rights.
As a result, we ask that announcements by winners on their own websites of these awards be conducted after consultations with TCL.
Please note, again, that rights, including design rights, will belong to TCL Technology Co., Ltd.
Winning works are planned to be marketed. If a work contains existing intellectual property rights, we will request that these be transferred to us upon acceptance of the prize money. However , depending on the details of these rights, we may engage in separate, individual negotiations. If your work contains existing intellectual property rights, please indicate this when submitting your entry.
Yes, this is correct.
Intellectual property rights for non-winning works will not be transferred to our company. Works will be stored by our company for a set amount of time and then disposed of.
This means, for example, performing research in advance to ensure that the submitted entry does not receive complaints or actions from a third party due to infringement of intellectual property rights. In addition, a variety of other cases can be assumed, including taking precautions to ensure that works and designs are not stolen by third parties (due to negligent disclosure).
Although all prize-winning works are considered for commercialisation, because decisions are made while considering innovativeness, technical possibility, cost, and other factors, there is a possibility that works may not be commercialised.
Applicants whose works have passed the first round of screening will be notified by postal mail by the middle of March 2021. Results of the final screening will be announced on this website in the middle of June 2021.
As a general rule, prize money will be paid at the award ceremony to be held in June 2021.
