FAQ : 

How many events will there be?

You will be in a 3-week competition with a minimum of 2 events to do per week.

How many times can I do the events?

You will be able to update your score until each weekly deadline (the Monday at 11:59 p.m. Eastern time zone)

Do I absolutely need to provide a video as proof of my results?

If you want to be eligible to the OCRWC spot and the F5RCE prizes yes.

But if you want to participate for fun you don't have to submit a video of your performance.  

Will you validate videos?

We will have a team to review the videos as we are going but the finale validation will be done before validating the final scores.  It is possible you see an invalid video up for a week.  You can bring it to our attention and we will prioritize looking at that performance.  

Why should I register?

By registering you will make it official that you are competing.  It will bring your level of good stress up and make you accountable to complete the events before the deadline.  You will be in the same state of mind as doing a real OCR challenge.  Just like doing a training day at a course is not the same as the real thing, not registering is not the same thing as doing it for real!  Give it a try, you will have a blast!
