Application Length Requirements

The guidelines state there is a 10 page max for the full application. However, utilizing the Herox online submission there are max character counts per question. Do we need to adhere to the character count per question, or the 10 page max for the full application?
Also, for question 10, is there a max page limit and/or file size for the zip file?

Hi Devan,

The character counts are the only requirement your submission needs to abide by, there is no page limit. Please note that character counts include spaces. May I ask where you saw the 10 page limit for the full application?

The platform permits uploads up to 1GB (though it will be very slow to save with an upload so big). Beyond that limit, there is no file size requirement.

For any submission, but especially if you have large files, please pay particular attention to this point: "Include key statistics, visualizations, and data summaries within the narrative of your submission. Attach supporting data sets that are traceable, labeled/ categorized, understandable, and readily map to each data conclusion. Raw data submitted without explanation may not be considered by judges."

Thank you,
