I want to address my question to NXP employees.
I has participated in the competition "Flex Your Mind with Kinetis FlexIO" - Hackster.io + NXP challenge.
I sent my project idea and received a message on March, 14, from Hackster employee Alessandra Nölting:
"Congratulations, the idea that you submitted for our Flex Your Mind challenge is a pre-contest winner! This means that you have won an NXP Freedom board (FRDM-K82F).
We decided to start shipping the boards ahead of the pre-contest closing date so that you can get started building your project!
Thank you for participating in the contest; we can't wait to see what you build!"
Inspired by this letter, I bought 8 digital microphones, and a few more details to build my project. Total is $45.
But 3 week is passed, and I don't get any information about shipping FRDM board to me.
At march, 29 I sent a e-mail to Hackster employee Alessandra Nölting with a request to report when I get a board and start work on the project. But she still did not answer!
On April, 4 I sent a e-mail to Hackster support center, but they are silent.
Project submission closed at May, 5.
I want to ask:
Are NXP's employees who are responsible for the conduct of this Contest monitor the work of Hackster.io employees?
How can I make a project for 3 week(include shematic, software, BOM and many, many other , which requred a contest rules) if I do not know I still get the board or not?
Hope, I can get an explanation from the NXP's employees, because NXP has always cared about its customers
