FAQ

Do I need to be a resident of an eligible country to take part?

Yes. The competition is open worldwide, with the exception of Belarus, China, Crimea, Cuba, Curacao, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Myanmar, North Korea, Quebec (Canada), Russia, Sudan, Syria, the Donetsk and Luhansk regions of Ukraine, Venezuela and any other countries under trade sanctions with the US.

I have a Spark AR business account. Can I participate in the competition?

No. Only individual and personal accounts can enter the competition.

How do I submit effects to the competition?

After you’ve joined the competition, select Competition Entry while publishing your effect.

Can I submit effects I've already published?

Yes. However, you’ll need to publish the effect again and select Competition Entry on the publishing form. If the effect is identical to your existing version, you may see a warning when you submit it. Note that publishing the effect again won’t update the previous version. Instead, you’ll have two published versions of the same effect, with separate metrics.

Can I submit more than one effect?

Yes - you can submit as many effects as you like and there’s no downside in doing this. If more than one of your effects is a finalist, your highest-scoring entry will count, and you’ll have a chance to win a cash prize based on how it ranks.

Does it matter if I don't have many followers?

You can succeed in Spark AR Competitions without having a large following.

In the first Spark AR competition, one participant in the top 20 had fewer than 100 followers, and three participants had between 100 and 1000 followers. Only three participants had more than 100k followers.

Can I use guns or other weapons in my competition effect?

No, weapons aren’t allowed under the Spark AR Policies (policy 3.3.a).

Where is the public leaderboard?

There is no public leaderboard and scores aren’t revealed during the competition. If more than one of your effects is a finalist, your highest-scoring entry will count, and you’ll have a chance to win a cash prize based on how it ranks.

When will I know if I won? How will I be contacted?

If you win, our partner Enteractive Solutions Group will contact you at the email address provided in your Facebook profile.
