  3. The competition will be held on Friday 13th February 2015 (Event Date) in which the entrant will attend the TAC Pause the Road Toll Ideas Hack competition for a minimum 9 hour period, and engage in an ideas hack, culminating in the presentation of a solution to the brief provided on the Event Date (Event).
  4. To enter, individuals must attend the TAC Pause the Road Toll Ideas Hack event on the Event Date (venue details provided on registration website) and arrive by 9:00AM (AEST) to sign-in. To be eligible, you must be available for the full day (approximately a 9 hour period).

  6. Information on how to register, information provided verbally by the Promoter at the Event and details of the prizes form part of these terms (Participant Terms). Any entry not complying with the Participant Terms will be deemed invalid.
  7. Once registered at the Event, participants will be presented with information from the Promoter or its agencies, or companies associated with the Event. Individuals can work autonomously, in pre-registered teams or form teams at the Event (Participant) where they will generate an idea for a creative technology solution to a live road safety issue that will be explained by the Promoter on the Event Date in the form of a brief.

All valid entries received on the Event Date will be judged on their creative merit, taking into account the potential to make an impact against the Promoter's road safety targets, along with the feasibility and simplicity of implementing the solution, and the originality of the solution. The judging will take place both on the Event Date, with 3 Participants to be shortlisted on that date.
