How to enter

2. Hashtag it with #HeyRGD and #HeyRGDTO by editing your post or adding it to the caption/comments. You must use both hashtags.⁠
3. Provide a brief explanation of how you used the prompt in your work.⁠
4. The deadline to submit is September 30, 2022.


Winners will be selected by a Judge from each sponsoring company. Winners will be chosen based on the strength of their work and explanation of their choices and process.
