Participation requirements and contest mechanics
Once the contest phase begins, the Design Wolf Studio will Create the swipe cards of all the Micro themes chosen by the contestants.

The platform will automatically rank the performance obtained by each contestant’s virtual portfolio, taking the initial and final Swipe cards as well as the distribution of the weight of each project within the competing virtual portfolios.
Following the end of the contest phase, the performance of the competing virtual portfolios will be calculated and ranked from highest to lowest performance for the classification of the winning portfolios. A manual review phase will then begin, where the Design Wolf Council will verify that all the winners have complied with the rules and that there have been no technical errors in the data collection process carried out by the Design Wolf Studio.
Once the manual review phase has been completed, the winners of the contest will be announced on Design Wolf social networks, a countdown will then be started on the platform’s dashboard, indicating when the prizes can be claimed.
