Will the judges sign a non-disclosure agreement?

Yes. However, you will be disqualified if you attempt to approach a judge or have someone do that on your behalf, specifically on connection with AIZ. Please note that applications will be sanitized before being judged, so wherever possible judges will not be in a position to bias their judging. If a judge were to encounter a conflict of interest, he will be required to declare this and will be ineligible to judge in that particular case.
