It must be consistent, with good morals, and not implicitly or explicitly contain images that are obscene and/or violent and/or discriminatory and/or offensive to any particular group; seeking to preserve the integrity, originality and image of the “IlliniCare Health Plan” brand; in all cases according to the organizer’s criteria, which may reject works that do not comply with this criterion without incurring any responsibility in front of disqualified participants.

For the assumption of reproducing names, images or faces of one or more persons, a remission with the same written authorization (s) of the person (s) identified in the images or owner (s) is a necessary condition of the face/s to be able to spread them for commercial, cultural, didactic and/or scientific purposes; this obligation is unavoidable, and in case of non-compliance, the artwork will be disqualified without any responsibility on the part of the organizer against the disqualified participant.
