HTML that uses 'external' resources

If we submit an HTML document that references technical resources (css, images, javascript) that is on a website -- will this be an acceptable way to submit materials? Or do all technical resources such images used in an HTML document need to be somehow included in the submission?

    Hi untoldone,

    Thanks for writing. You're encouraged to include an HTML document, but it's not required.

    The rules state that, "Contestants must create a patient-centric design, which visualizes and incorporates clinical trial information (each a 'Design'). The Design must include each data field identified in the Required Sections and Fields document and must utilize information from the sample clinical trial documents provided on the Resources page. For the purpose of consistency, all Contestants are required to populate their Designs with content from the same sample clinical trial... The image(s) must be photographs or screenshots of your Design. Acceptable file formats uploaded to the 'Images' field on the Enter a Submission page include PNG, JPG, and non-animated GIF."

    So to be eligible, you must submit a visual representation of your design in the form of uploaded images. In addition to that, you need to include all of those images in a ZIP file that is uploaded to your submission.

    Here is the section of the challenge rules that pertains to the ZIP file requirement: "Contestant must visit the submission form on the Competition Website and enter... a single ZIP file uploaded on the 'Upload a file' field on the Enter a Submission page, which must include all images uploaded in the 'Images' field and may include additional Design images (acceptable file formats include PNG, JPG, non-animated GIF, TIFF, PSD, AI, PDF, and HTML)."

    If you have any other questions, please let me know.

    All the best,

    Thanks for your response -- it does clarify the original question. A followup (and a question it seems others are getting at on this forum): Will interactive submissions be evaluated as interactive submission? Is there any actual benefit to taking the step of implementing how a user might interact with our submission (beyond static images) or will the submission be evaluated by judges on primarily the non-interactive/ non-animated images submitted?

    Hi untoldone,

    Fair question. Because there aren't distinct prize categories in this challenge, submissions that include software implementation will not be evaluated separately from submissions that do not include software implementation.

    That said, I do want to point out that one of the judging criteria is "Appropriateness for Mobile or Web Application," which includes the potential to implement your design as a mobile or web app.

    I hope that helps.
