Using an educational version of revit to enter a design competiton

Hello 

I am a masters student using an educational version of revit. Recently a designer posted a competition on social media which every body can enter, with a potential cash price for the winner

 

I wanted to ask if it is okay to use my educational version of revit to enter that competition ? what i understood from reading the terms of use and liscencing agreement is that the educational liscence does not cover commercial /for profit use . But does that count? 

Thanks

Would you be profiting from it?

Drafting is a breeze and Revit doesn't always work the way you think it should.

I don't think in this case it matters if you get a cash prize or other award that has some cash value. Lots of other college and high school students enter design competitions and win cash or other prizes. I think the intent is to prevent professional firms/people from using the educational software to charge a client for a service.

I disagree. I think the intent is to allow students to learn the software without the cost of subscription. If there were enough contests, a student with a free license could profit quite a bit. Obviously, the OP has doubts or they wouldn't be asking the question. When in doubt err on the side of caution.

@RobDraw i wont profit unless i am the competition winner. If i win i get a cash price if i dont win i dont get anything accept for maybe posting my design on social media

I'm not a lawyer and cannot offer you legal advice. Entering the contest may not be explicitly against the EULA but winning it might be. If you want to be safe, subscribe for a month. Do the project entirely on the paid for version and you won't have to worry about it.

I get your point . But actually I am quite new to competitions as this is the first building design competition i am considering entering . Thats why i am cautious .

My first thought would be no since it's not for educational purposes, the second, do you need Revit for it? Perhaps call Revit helpdesk, they can probably tell you right away.
