The idea may be submitted on behalf of an organization, and, subject to meeting our due diligence criteria, the organization may be selected to receive the RFP for fulfillment to implement the idea if it wins.

If the idea involves the implementation of a program that requires ongoing funding, Aviva can only guarantee one year of funding.

Ideas that don't meet the eligibility criteria above will not qualify for funding, and won't be posted. If Aviva determines that an idea doesn't meet the eligibility criteria prior to the semi-final or judging phases, the idea will be eliminated from competing in those rounds of the competition.
