Event ID Photo Requirements

  • At onsite registration, you will receive an event identification card to permit you access to the Solar Decathlon China site.
  • The identification card will include a photo, which must be submitted as part of online registration.
  • Because of the large number of event participants who pick up IDs at the All-Team Meeting, if we do not have your documents and photo ahead of time, we may not be able to process your event identification card at this time.

Helpful Hints

Past Solar Decathlon teams have found efficient ways to complete their registrations. Here are a few hints:

  • Put one person in charge of collecting completed forms and photos.
  • Create a spreadsheet to track who has registered online and turned in completed forms and photos.
  • Set up a photo shoot day when all team members have their photos taken. This gives a uniform look to all photos. Have team members wear their team uniforms.
  • Name your team documents and photos in a logical way that identifies both your name and team. For example, for the first member of Team JIA+, John Smith’s, the files would be named: 1101_Team JIA+_Smith_Photo.
  • Send all completed forms and photos to support@sdchina.org.cn so we receive them by June 1st.
