🤔 Questions about the Competition

If you have any questions about the competition, ask them here!

Hi - do you have to have fully pre-registered the study by the time you apply for this grant for it to be eligible? Or can you post the overview and then add a link to pre-registration later, for example? Thanks!

Hey @Madeleine_Pownall, welcome to the community! :tada:

Thanks for the question :slight_smile:

We’d like to see evidence of pre-registration by the deadline on June 30th. So, you can post your overview whenever you’d like, but you’ll need to make sure the link is added by the deadline.

Hello,
I have two questions:

  1. Can you add pictures/images to the grant proposal?
  2. If you win, is there a deadline to complete the study by?
    Thanks,
    Katrina

Hey @Michael_Parent, welcome aboard! Happy that you’re here :tada:

The award money will be given in the form of Prolific credit. So, unfortunately, it can’t be used on anything off-platform.

Let me know if you have any other questions :slight_smile:

How long will the applications be available on the forum for ‘voting’ before the top 5 applications are chosen?

Thanks!

Hey @DrKimberlyMore, welcome to the community! :tada:

People will be able to vote from the time that a proposal is submitted.

But to ensure that everyone has a chance to read and vote for them, there will be a 14 day ‘voting only’ period after the deadline (June 30th) where no new proposals will be accepted, but voting will continue :slight_smile:

Hello,

Are there any rules about who can vote for the proposals, i.e. new members of the community, trust-level requirements?

Thanks,
Katrina

No requirements beyond having a Prolific researcher and community account :slight_smile:

Hello,

Do tables and figures count towards the 1000 word limit?

Hi,

Can we edit our proposal after it’s edited?

I just submitted it, and I am not sure if the format looks good…

Thanks,
