Participation in the competition entails producing classroom work in the correct category for the school year of the pupils. As an exception, work done by students in different categories in rural schools which are grouped together and work done by travelling circus classes, special support classes, may be accepted.

In these cases, the class will participate in the category where there are most students.

ONCE will request you submit the necessary documentation at the appropriate time. ONCE accepts no liability for claims in connection with image and voice rights of participants with regard to anthems, flags or audio-descriptions.

All categories will participate online.

With regard to the category E (special education), given the characteristics of this category and the works that tend to be submitted (textures, volumes, relief, etc.) there is an option, to enable a more accurate assessment by the National Jury, to submit original works to Dirección de Comunicación e Imagen de ONCE, c/La Coruña, 18 28020 Madrid) by clearly specifying on the envelope "School Competition”.

5. Valuation Criteria

I. CREATIVITY: The jury will consider the originality of the work for championing this great international movement for inclusiveness.
II. QUALITY: At the same time, consideration shall be given to the care taken, the presentation of the works and techniques used.
IV. MESSAGE: The jury will assess the flag/anthem ability to transmit the international principles of inclusiveness. ACCESSIBILITY: accessibility is an essential factor for social inclusiveness and as an example of solidarity in the educational field, therefore the effort made to ensure that the works presented are accessible to people with disabilities will be specifically evaluated.

6. Phases in the Competition

The competition consists of three phases:

  • Provincial state: All works in categories A, B and C and submitted by the schools in each province will be entered in this stage, and the winners will go on to compete in the next stage. In the event that a Technical Board is required, this will comprise teaching professionals who specialise in inclusiveness. The board will make a preliminary assessment of all works to ensure that there are no more than 100 works in each category in any province to be evaluated the jury.
  • Stage of autonomic field: in each Autonomous Community will select a job for each category (A, B, and C), from among the winners of the previous phase. These works will go forward to compete in the nationwide phase. The single-province Autonomous Communities and the Autonomous Cities of Ceuta and Melilla will start competing in this phase. The Jury shall elect a flag to be produced from the autonomist winners of categories A, B and C. They will also select second flag, in case there are technical or legal reasons why the first choice cannot be produced. (See Section 9 on legislation)
  • Nationwide phase: will reward a piece of work in each category (A, B, C, D and E). The jury will also select a flag and an anthem for inclusiveness. They will also select second flag or anthem, in case there are technical or legal reasons why the first choice cannot be produced. (See Section 9 on legislation)

Category D works will be prejudged by a Technical Panel made up of teaching professionals and inclusion specialists. The panel will select a maximum of 20 works to go into the nationwide phase, whose jury will pick five finalists from the list, among which the nationwide winner will be chosen.

Works entered in category E (Special Education) will be assessed by a technical team from the Ministry of Education and Vocational Training. They will select five finalists, from among which they will choose the national winner.

7. Procedures / Dates of Juries

Provincial juries will be formed in ONCE Territorial Offices, Area Offices, Support Offices and agencies based in provincial capitals, as well as an autonomous regional jury in Territorial Offices.

The jury will consist of at least six members: three representatives of ONCE (one from the representation area, one from management and one from the specific Educational Care team for which area) and three other members selected from the fields of communication, education, music, graphic design or public administration.

Autonomous regional juries will also include a member of the CERMI.

Debido a las actuales circunstancias, la composición, número, fecha de celebración y formato de votación del jurado en la fase autonómica podrá adaptarse a las mismas, aunque lo idóneo sería mantener la estructura propuesta inicialmente en el Oficio-Circular. Si no fuera posible esta composición del jurado se considerará como jurado válido el formado por tres miembros representantes de ONCE (uno del área de representación, uno del área de la gestión y un profesional especializado de los equipos específicos de atención educativa de ese ámbito territorial).

El procedimiento de estos fallos será el siguiente:

El coordinador del Concurso Escolar de cada Centro dará de alta en la plataforma a todos los miembros del jurado para que puedan proceder a valorar los trabajos que concursan en la fase autonómica. Si el coordinador del Centro no pudiera realizar las altas, se comunicará lo antes posible al departamento de RRPP, dependiente de la Dirección de Comunicación e Imagen del Grupo Social ONCE los correos de referencia, adjuntando el listado de jurados y sus correos electrónicos para que se realice el alta de forma centralizada.

Una vez que los jurados hayan valorado los trabajos se generará automáticamente un ranking atendiendo a la puntuación.

En la fecha prevista para el fallo, si es posible se establecerá una reunión virtual para deliberar sobre el ranking de las tres categorías.

Uno de los miembros del jurado, representante de ONCE, actuará como presidente del jurado y ostentará el voto de calidad para dirimir, en su caso, el empate en la votación.

Si no fuera posible la celebración de una reunión virtual el presidente del jurado proclamará ganadores a los trabajos atendiendo al ranking de votación, marcando los trabajos con mayor puntuación de las categorías A B y C como ganadores.

En el acta se reflejará que la reunión del jurado se ha realizado de manera no presencial.

No se podrá adjudicar a dos o más trabajos en el mismo puesto de calificación.

En esta fase, además de la elección de los ganadores de las tres categorías A, B y C, los jurados debían elegir de entre estos tres ganadores una bandera que representará el movimiento por la inclusión a nivel autonómico. Dado que el estado de alarma declarado ha traído consigo la paralización de las actividades académicas, se ha acordado dejar sin efecto esta acción, por resultar imposible su ejecución.

La composición del jurado de ámbito estatal se regirá por los mismos criterios que los autonómicos.

En esta fase, además de la elección de los ganadores de las categorías A, B, C, D y E el jurado elegirá de entre los ganadores de las categorías A, B, C Y E una bandera que representará al movimiento por la inclusión. Igualmente de entre los 5 finalistas de la categoría D se elegirá el Himno del movimiento por la Inclusión.

Los fallos de los jurados provinciales tendrán lugar antes del 13 de marzo de 2020. Los jurados autonómicos fallarán preferentemente antes del 8 de abril y el jurado estatal se reunirá antes de finales del mes de junio de 2020.

Once the winning works have been selected, they will be published on the competition within 48 hours of issuing the juries’ decisions.

All work not submitted in required formats as established in these rules will be excluded from the competition, as will those which are incompatible or which breach copyright.

The jury will choose joint winners in any categories.

All prizes in all category in all stages will be awarded, provided that there are at least two works that meet the competition requirements. In the event of a disqualification of a price of work on grounds of non-compliance with the requirements, the jury will give grounds for this in its decision.

By entering the competition, participants are deemed to have accepted the rules. The Jurors’ decisions shall be binding and final at all times.

One of the members of the jury representing ONCE will act as Chairperson and shall have the casting vote in case of a tie.

ONCE's Territorial Delegations, according to their own needs, will decide whether to form the jury for the provincial phase on the same date and with the same members as the autonomous regional phase.

8. Prizes

I. Both students and teachers will receive bracelets to promote the inclusiveness movement.

II. Winning students and teachers in the provincial stage will receive a belt bag.

III. Winning groups in the autonomous regional stage will be rewarded with an activity for the entire class, valued at a maximum of 400 euros, VAT/VAT included, as will the groups of works selected as finalists in categories D and E (five and five respectively). These awards may not be exchanged for cash. ONCE will reimburse the maximum amount on receipt of an invoice issued to the agency The Modern Kids and Family, which has been engaged by ONCE to manage this competition.

Se admitirá también como alternativa puntual, dadas las circunstancias, el canje del premio por la compra de material para el aula ganadora.

Ambas posibilidades se materializarán en el curso del presente año 2020.

IV. Los grupos-aula ganadores en la fase de ámbito estatal verán modificado el premio quedando sin efecto la celebración del campus "La mirada de tod@s" y sustituyéndose por el envío de una Tablet para cada alumno y profesor ganador de esta fase.

V. The winning groups’ schools at nationwide level will receive a diploma to prove that they won the prize.
