New competition rule

I heard that there will be new rules for some design competition.
The designers will able to win the award if he/she is from similar field.

For example if you are from home appliance field & if you participate home appliance competition, you are eligible to win.
& if you are from different field you will not be eligible to win the competition.
If I am working for home appliance company, I will definitely give my idea or concept to that company only.

I found it little weird…

what is this in regards to ADD?
