What happens when I submit a solution?

Initially, the Solver will receive a confirmation email within a few days after their submission. Once the Solver knows that their solution has been received, the process begins. The solution process is conducted in phases. The first phase is the submission phase in which Solvers have time to develop solutions. Once the deadline has passed, all submitted solutions are reviewed during a selection phase. The Seeker then decides whether or not to retain a solution and award the prize.
