Selection procedure: Our panel of judges will convene to judge your submission. Submissions will be judged on the following parameters:
- Cost- & Time-Effectiveness
- Link to public press or a photo about the action if available; we suspect the most creative actions haven’t yet been reported, so no worries if not available.

Only one submission per person.
