– The sharing must be public.

– The video must show that the DIY instrument can be played (see jury decision criteria in Implementation and processing section)

– In order for us to find the videos, posts must be tagged with the hashtag #DiyKitChallenge22. On YouTube, #DiyKitChallenge22 should also be included in the title of the video.

The “rightful owner” is the natural person who is to be considered the owner of the profile according to the terms of use of the respective social media provider, in particular whose profile has been verified on an e-mail address belonging to her/him. Potential winners may be required to provide us with proof that they are the rightful owner of the account in question or risk losing their right to the prize.

The participant is responsible for the accuracy of her/his data, in particular her/his e-mail and / or postal address. Entries with invalid/incomplete data, e.g. non-functional or inactive email addresses or fake profiles on the respective social networks will be disqualified.

Each participant bears the costs of purchase, construction of the kit, in particular the working time and the costs for any additional material necessary.
