- WINNER SELECTION/JUDGING: Each submission will be initially judged by (A) Sponsor's representative or designee based on the level of engagement obtained by the Submission during the Contest Period. One (1) point will be awarded for each “Like” obtained during the Contest Period. Based on the scoring, Submissions will be narrowed down to a top 10 that will then be individually judged by a panel of judges comprised of Sponsor employees based upon the following weighted criteria: Group Spirit (40%), Creativity (30%), Uniqueness (20%); and Story Behind the Picture (10%) (collectively, “Judging Criteria”); and (B) by Sponsor's website users and customers based upon which Submission is deemed by such Sponsor website users and customers to have the highest number of "Likes" (collectively, such criteria in (A) and (B), “Judging Criteria”). At the end of each week that the Promotion is run, one (1) Submission received during the prior week will be selected as a potential prize winner based on the category (A) Judging Criteria, and one (1) Submission received during the prior week will be selected as a potential prize winner based on the category (B) Judging Criteria, each such winning Submission being subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules and the Promotion Site Terms of Service. In the event of a tie with respect to the winning Submission based on Category (A) Judging Criteria, the Submission among the tied Submissions with the highest score in “Group Spirit” will be deemed the prize winner. In the event of a tie with respect to the winning Submission based on Category (B) Judging Criteria, the Submission among the tied Submissions will be judged by the Category (A) Judging Criteria and Sponsor’s employees will select the winner based on such criteria. Decisions of Sponsor and judges are final and binding in all respects. Potential prize winners will be notified by email.
