Only works that meet the conditions for participation will be entered for the International Eyes & Ears Awards and the evaluation. Eyes & Ears of Europe e.V. reserves the right to exclude entries from the competition if they do not meet the conditions of participation or if the association is convinced that they could result in damage to the association. For submitted entries which are not awarded a prize, which are withdrawn by the entrant after the closing date or which are not admitted to the International Eyes & Ears Awards, in particular because they do not meet the conditions of entry, the contributions will not be refunded. All submissions will be reviewed prior to the jury meeting to ensure compliance with the terms and conditions. If necessary, insufficient or missing information will be subsequently requested from the submitter. Eyes & Ears of Europe e.V. reserves the right, after consultation with the entrant, to change categories and edit credits. If the submitter rejects a category change, Eyes & Ears of Europe reserves the right to disqualify this entry without reimbursement. If submissions are not subtitled in English, Eyes & Ears of Europe reserves the right to do so subsequently. Eyes & Ears of Europe also reserves the right not to award any prize in this category if the number of entries is low (less than 5) or to withdraw the entire category from the competition. In this case, the entrant may be granted a free entry for the following year.

This does not apply if the damage was caused intentionally or through gross negligence. Furthermore, the limitation shall not apply in the event of a breach of material contractual obligations, i.e. such contractual obligations the performance of which is essential for the proper performance of the contract and on whose compliance the submitter may regularly rely and whose breach, on the other hand, jeopardises the achievement of the purpose of the contract.
