How the Event will be conducted
- On 16 May 2023, an event facilitator will lead a presentation at the Event regarding road safety issues in Queensland, and will pose a problem-solving challenge to Attendees with a particular emphasis on road safety for young drivers (“Challenge”).
- At the end of the presentation, Attendees will be required to split into groups of five (5) or six (6) people (each a “Team”) to discuss the Challenge and collaboratively develop a communications-based solution to the Challenge. If Attendees are not able to independently split into groups of five (5) or six (6) people, the Promoter reserves the right to determine the Attendees that will make up the Team/s. Teams will be given approximately 5 hours that day to develop a solution to the Challenge and to put together a formal proposal (“Proposal”). The facilitator will provide the Teams with a brief regarding the Challenge and what they must address in their Proposal to help provide clarity in the way their solution is conceived and presented, and will advise on the exact format the Proposal must be presented in. In addition to the 5 hours provided at the Event for Teams to collaborate on their Proposal, they are also welcome to develop the Proposal in their free time after the Event has concluded for the day on 16 May 2023.
- On 17 March 2023, each Team will then be required to reconvene at the Event to present their Proposal to the facilitator and a panel of judges. The panel of judges will be made up of a selection of experts in various fields, and will be determined by the Promoter in its absolute discretion.
- Only one (1) Proposal is permitted per Team.
- Incomplete, indecipherable, inaudible, illegible or incorrectly submitted Proposals will be deemed invalid.
- This is a challenge of skill and chance plays no part in determining the Finalist Teams or Winning Team (each defined below).
- Each Team’s Proposal will be individually judged by the panel of judges based on:
- how well the Proposal addresses the Challenge;
- the feasibility of real-world implementation of the Proposal;
- the innovation and uniqueness of approach of the Proposal; and
- any other criteria the judges may decide in their absolute discretion.
- The judges’ decision will be final and no correspondence or discussion will be entered into. There will be no appeals and no re-submitting of Proposals.
- The judging panel will select three (3) Proposals that they determine to be the best (each a “Finalist Team”), based on the judging criteria outlined above, and will announce the names of the Finalist Teams at the end of the Event on 17 May 2023. The Promoter will then, over a period after the Event has ended, judge the three (3) Finalist Teams against each other based on the same judging criteria to determine the best one (1) Proposal overall (“Winning Team”).
- The Winning Team will be awarded the following prize:
- $1,600 VISA Cash Card to each member of the Winning Team (“Cash Prize“); and
- non-monetary assistance to progress the Proposal, provided as a combination of advice and assistance from the Promoter’s Advertising Agency, Publicis Worldwide, to assist the Team in further progressing its Proposal. Each member of the Winning Team will be required to attend development session(s) with Publicis Worldwide to develop their Proposal, which will be conducted on exact dates determined by the Promoter and Publicis Worldwide Partnership. The exact value and composition of the non-monetary assistance for this component of the prize will be determined by the Promoter in its absolute discretion, and it will be based on the specific requirements of the Proposal and what is involved in its implementation.
- In addition to the above there will be an audience participation segment where audience members of the Event will participate in a paper vote of each Team’s Proposal. The Team that obtains the highest score from the audience will be awarded a $100 VISA Cash Card for each member of that Team. For the avoidance of doubt, the outcome of this activity has no bearing on any Team’s ability to be selected as the overall Winning Team, or as one the top three Finalist Teams by the judging panel.
- The Promoter reserves the right, at any time: (a) to invalidate any votes which it reasonably suspects have been submitted using false, incorrect, fraudulent or misleading information, including but not limited to personal details and contact information and/or votes that have been submitted through the use of multiple identities, email addresses or accounts, including but not limited to social networking accounts; and/or (b) to disqualify any Attendee or Team (or invalidate their Proposal) that the Promoter reasonably suspects has paid, bartered or offered payment or other consideration to another person in exchange for votes or has otherwise encouraged or procured any person to submit votes contrary to these Terms and Conditions.
- Any ancillary costs associated with redeeming the VISA Cash Card are not included. Any unused balance of the VISA Cash Card will not be awarded as cash. Redemption of the VISA Cash Card is subject to any terms and conditions of the issuer including those specified on the VISA Cash Card.
- If for any reason a winner does not take a prize (or an element of a prize) by the time stipulated by the Promoter, then the prize (or that element of the prize) will be forfeited.
- If any prize (or part of any prize) is unavailable, the Promoter, in its discretion, reserves the right to substitute the prize (or that part of the prize) with a prize to the equal value and/or specification.
- Prizes, or any unused portion of a prize, are not transferable or exchangeable and cannot be taken as cash, unless otherwise specified.

- Attendance of members of the Winning Team on both days of the Event is mandatory. The Promoter, at their own discretion, reserves the right to disqualify and therefore withhold the Cash Prize of any member that is not in attendance on both days.
- Each member of the Winning Team may be required to attend one (1) or two (2) media events in Brisbane, QLD during 2023 (exact date to be determined by the Promoter and made known to the Winning Team once selected), where the Winning Team and/or the final campaign may be announced.
