How can I submit my project?
To submit your project you must create a 2-minute-long video,

everything related to the project: presentation, demo, etc. The jury will evaluate based on this video.
Please note that all of the submission videos have to be uploaded into a Dropbox folder, not onto a
Google drive one.
