There are ten required application questions and three optional questions; the word limits range from 50 to 250 words. You will be able to save a draft of your application.

We recommend beginning your application well ahead of the deadline as, depending on your internet speed, it may take significant time for any video files or other supplemental materials to upload and late applications will not be accepted.

Supplemental materials are optional. You are invited to include with your application up to three Word or PDF documents including, for example, any press coverage, strategic plan outlines, or annual reports. You may also submit up to three images, including sketches, renderings, photographs of yourself/your team in the field, your product or service "in action" etc.

This application is fully supported on the web browsers: Chrome, FireFox and Safari. We suggest that you do not use Internet Explorer.

If you have any issues with the application host platform itself, you may contact our customer service representative directly by writing to Natalie Bender: Please include "Buckminster Fuller Challenge Application Question" in the subject line of your email.
