Hi @defossez and @ada_or_ardor,
thank you very much for your questions! And sorry if the information we provided so far is incomplete.
Effectively, the README should be sent only by participants that are eligible for a prize (i.e., the top ones in the two leaderboards). By the end of today, these participants will receive an e-mail from the AIcrowd team with all the details on how to submit their code.
I can anticipate to you that the deadline to submit the README and the code is Friday, August 6th.
What exactly do you mean?
The code that will be released is the code that is sent together with the README.
As per the challenge rules, you will be free to choose the open-source license you prefer.
After we have checked the submission and made sure that it is eligible for a prize, it will be released on the challenge page of the AIcrowd website. Here is a similar example, for another challenge.
In case this does not answer your question, please let me know
In this case, the team will not eligible for any prize (note that this is equivalent to refusing the prize).
Yes, even if a team refuses the prize, their position in the leaderboard does not change.
The only exception to this is if a team gets disqualified (@shivam, is this correct?).
Feel free to ask more questions, in case something is not clear.
And in the meantime, I’d like to thank you for your participation, I hope you had a nice experience with the challenge!
