JUDGING: There will be seven (7) prize winners selected in this Contest, one (1) Grand Prize Winner and six (6) runner up prize winners (each, a “Runner Up”). On or about October 5, 2022, all Submissions will be initially reviewed by the Sponsor or a Sponsor representative for compliance with these Official Rules (including the Submission requirements). Thereafter, the eligible Submissions received will be judged and scored based on the following criteria: (34%) Creativity; (33%) Originality; and (33%) Presentation.
Each Submission will, for each of the above-described criteria, be scored with a raw score between 1-5 (with 5 being the highest). For each Submission, after a (1-5) score has been determined for each criterion, each raw score will be “weighted”, taking into account the relative percentages shown above (in parentheses, next to each criterion). The “total score” for each scored Submission will be the total score of all of the above criteria (taking into account the above-described “weighting”). From among all Submissions received in the Contest Period, the one (1) Submission having the highest “total scores” will be deemed the Grand Prize-winning Submission. The six (6) next highest scoring Submissions will be deemed the Runner Up-winning Submissions. In the event of a tie, an additional judge will score each tied Submission (pursuant to the procedures described above) and the Submission with the highest total score pursuant to that subsequent scoring will be deemed the respective prize winner. In the event of a further tie, Sponsor (as applicable) shall, in their sole discretion, choose a prize winner (as applicable) based on its evaluation of which Submission is superior overall, taking the entire judging criteria into consideration.
WINNING/NOTIFICATION: The potential prize winners will be notified by the Sponsor via direct message to his/her Instagram or Twitter account within one (1) to three (3) business days from the date in which the judging is complete. Each potential prize winner will be required to supply his/her email address and shipping address for delivery of the respective prize. In addition, the Grand Prize Winner will also be required to complete the prize claims and verification process as further described in the “PRIZE CLAIMS” section below. Sponsor will only make two (2) attempts to reach a potential prize winner via direct message within a seventy-two (72) hour time frame. In the event the Sponsor cannot reach a potential prize winner after two (2) attempts have been made, the original potential prize winner will be disqualified and an alternate prize winner (selected via the judging criteria outlined above) will be notified until the correct number of prize winners are confirmed.
All Prizes will be shipped within four (4) weeks or less from the date in which all prize winners are determined and verified via the prize claim process. The names of the prize winners may also be posted on Sponsor’s website and/or social media channels.

If a potential Grand Prize Winner fails to return the Required Documents within the time period required, or if the email is returned as undeliverable, such potential Grand Prize Winner forfeits his/her right to the respective prize and an alternate will be notified as outlined in the WINNING/NOTIFICATION section above, even if the disqualified potential Grand Prize Winner’s name may have been publicly announced. Potential Grand Prize Winner must report income to the IRS. In the event it is deemed during the verification process that the potential Grand Prize Winner does not have a unique, personal and valid social security number for Sponsor to report the tax liability associated with acceptance of the respective prize, such potential Grand Prize Winner will be disqualified, and an Alternate will be notified as outlined above. Valid social security numbers will be determined by IRS requirements. If it is determined by the Sponsor/Independent Administrator, in their sole discretion, that the potential Grand Prize Winner is not eligible or otherwise not in compliance with these Official Rules, the potential Grand Prize Winner forfeits his/her right to the respective prize and an alternate will be notified as outlined in the WINNING/NOTIFICATION section above, even if the disqualified potential Grand Prize Winner’s name may have been publicly announced. In the event a potential Grand Prize Winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor/Independent Administrator shall have no liability or obligation to such individual.
