In the credits, do I need to list every single person or company that contributed to the work?

While it is not required, we recommend that you are as comprehensive as possible when filling out the credit details with your entry.  Should your work make the shortlist or win an award, the credits will show within the Winners gallery.  For more information regarding Credits, see here

I made a mistake on my entry or forgot to include some people on the credits, can I make changes after it has been submitted?

While we encourage you to be as thorough and accurate as possible when entering your credits information for entry, we realize this isn't always possible.  Credit updates are allowed after the entry has been submitted, however we cannot guarantee that these will be reflected immediately within places like the Winners Gallery.

In most cases, you will be able to sign into the Entries system and manage credit updates yourself, however during certain periods the system will be inaccessible for these.  In such instances you will need to reach out directly to the Clio team to request credit updates.

I've started my entry but still need to gather some more information, will I lose all of the information I've entered so far?

The system will save your work at certain intervals, but to ensure you don't lose any progress you've made on your entries please be sure to click the 'Save Entries' button at the bottom of the screen before you exit.  You can always return at a later time to finish entering your work.

Please note, however, that the deadline period that will apply to you is dependent on when you actually submit the entry, not when you started entering information.

What are the deadlines for submitting entries?

Each program typically has three deadlines for entries (1st, 2nd, Final).  The entry prices change depending upon will deadline period the program is currently in.  To see the key dates for each respective Clio program:

Why are there different deadlines for entries within a program?

The deadlines within the programs incentivize users to get their entries in at the earliest.  This allows the Clio team the most time to check over and process all entry information.

What deadline price will I be charged if I started entering my work during one period but didn't submit it until another?

The entry fees are determined by the date you actually successfully submit your work into the program, not when you begin working on an entry.  

For example, if you started entering your work into the Clio entries system during the 1st deadline but did not complete it at that time and finally submitted it during the 2nd deadline period then you will be charged the 2nd deadline entry fees.
