Hello, it is my first contest, and I have a general question to the concept of these contests. It seems after a first-glance analysis of the available literature and patents that the patent idea of the contest was indeed novel and no prior art existed. However, it seems to me that this kind of answer is not what is sought, correct? So - if no prior art can be found to challenge the novelty of the invention, there is no way to participate in the contest?
