BY SUBMITTING AN ENTRY, THE CAPTAIN REPRESENTS AND WARRANTS THAT he or she has all necessary RIGHTS (INCLUDING ANY NECESSARY LICENSES OR CONSENTS) TO USE AND SUBMIT THE ENTRY on behalf of the Organization
Sponsor expressly reserves the right, but is under no obligation, to supplement any Entry with phone interviews and/or supplemental information requests (sent via electronic mail) in order to verify the accuracy or completeness of Entry information. Captain agrees to provide complete and truthful information in response to such requests, with the understanding that the failure to do so in a timely manner (or the provision of incomplete or inaccurate information in responding to any such request) may result in disqualification of the Entry.
All Entries must be received by 6/30/2020 at 11:59 PM ET.
VI. PRELIMINARY JUDGING: A judging panel comprised of representatives of Sponsor will review all eligible Entries and select the top five (5) Entrants as finalists (the “Finalists”). Sponsor reserves the right to select fewer than five Finalists due to an insufficient number of qualified (eligible) Entries, or for any other reason. Finalists will be awarded up to 10 points for each of the following criteria:
A. Demonstrating a clear and concise growth story;
B. Persuasiveness and effectiveness of demonstrating the growth story; and
C. Clearly outlining how the $25,000 would be used to help the company grow.
In the event two or more potential Finalists have the same number of total points, the Organization whose Entry has the higher score for criteria (A) above will prevail.
On or about 7/8/2020, the Captain of each Finalist will be contacted by Sponsor via email, phone or mail (exact method or methods of notification will be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion). As a condition to announcement as a Finalist, the Captain and the Organization agree to timely complete, sign and return (except where prohibited by law) a Publicity Release Form. If the Organization fails to timely execute and return these documents, or is deemed ineligible or in violation of these Official Rules, or if the Captain cannot be contacted after reasonable effort as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion, the selection of the Organization as a Finalist will be rescinded, the Organization will forfeit any claim to a prize, and Sponsor shall not have any liability or obligation of any kind to such Organization under any legal theory. In such an event, Sponsor may or may not elect, in its sole discretion, to select another Organization as a Finalist.
On or about 7/10/2020, Captains of Entrants not selected as Finalists will be contacted by Sponsor via email, phone or mail (exact method(s) of notification to be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion) and notified that their Organization was not selected as a Finalist.
VII. FINAL COMPETITION
A. Finalist Video Development and Submission:
In order to compete for the Grand Prize, each Finalist must create a video telling the Organization’s brand growth story (“Finalist Videos”). The video should showcase the Finalist Organization in action and should expand upon and complement the Finalist’s original Entry. A Finalist Video cannot exceed two (2) minutes in length and will be filmed and edited exclusively by a professional film crew selected and compensated by Sponsor (the “Video Production Company”). A Finalist may only submit one (1) Finalist Video, and, once submitted, a Finalist Video cannot be modified, edited, supplemented or changed. All components of the Finalist Video must be created specifically for this Challenge and not have been previously published. Once approved by the Finalist, the Video Production Company shall submit the Finalist’s Video to Sponsor.
All Finalist Videos must be received by 8/7/2020 at 11:59 PM ET.
In addition to the foregoing, each Finalist Video must comply with the submission guidelines set forth in Section IX.A, below. If Sponsor determines, in its sole discretion, that a Finalist Video is not in compliance with these requirements, Sponsor may, but is under no obligation to, advise the Finalist Captain of such non-compliance and provide the Finalist an opportunity to re-submit the Finalist Video, time permitting. In the event that Sponsor determines, in its sole discretion, that the non-compliance of a Finalist Video if sufficiently egregious or blatant, Sponsor may automatically disqualify such Finalist and revoke any prize previously awarded.
B. Posting of Finalist Videos
If Sponsor determines that a Finalist Video meets the submission guidelines set forth herein, Sponsor will post such Finalist Video on a website designated by Sponsor (the “Finalist Video Site”). Each Finalist Organization understands and agrees that (1) the posting of the Finalist Video is subject to technological, electronic, programming and other limitations or malfunctions; (2) the Finalist Video as posted may not be exactly the same as Finalist Video submitted by Finalist; (3) the Finalist Video may be posted by Sponsor on Finalist Video Site in any order, format, sequence or pattern, which may or may not be altered or varied by Sponsor in its sole discretion one (1) or more times during the public voting period; and (4) Finalist Video will be attributed to Finalist by the formal name of the Finalist’s organization.
C. Promotion of Finalist Videos
Finalists may promote their Finalist Video and the Challenge generally through their social media channels (provided that all such promotion is in accordance with, and not otherwise prohibited by, the terms of service of each such social media platform) and through electronic mail to those recipients that have opted in to receive such communications, and other lawful methods. All such promotional activities must link to the Finalist Video Site.
D. Finalist Video Voting
Between 8/7/2020 at 12:00 AM ET and 8/27/2020 at 11:59 PM ET, visitors to the Finalist Video Site may view Finalist Videos and vote for one favorite. Each visitor is limited to one vote (per Twitter account or IP address). Sponsor may choose to postpone or modify the Finalist Video voting period by posting notice to such effect on the Finalist Video Site. Each vote must be manually key-stroked in accordance with the instructions on the Finalist Video Site. Use of any device or artifice to manipulate or compromise the integrity of the voting procedure will result in voiding of such votes by Sponsor in its sole discretion. In such an event, Sponsor reserves the right to impose penalties on (and perhaps disqualify) any Finalist determined to have been involved in such actions. Such penalties and disqualification will not constitute the sole recourse available to Sponsor under such circumstances. Sponsor reserves the right to confirm the one-vote per person requirement through confirmation of IP addresses or social media accounts. Should Sponsor decide to post a running total of the number of votes received by each Finalist Video in the public voting period, such total is provided for informational purposes only, is not binding upon Sponsor in any respect and may be modified at any time without notice or liability.
VIII. DETERMINATION OF WINNERS: The awarding of the Grand Prize will be determined based on the following formula with regard to Finalist Videos. Any rankings will be calculated on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the highest.
A. Ranking among the five (5) Finalists for total number of votes (25%)
B. Ranking among the five (5) Finalists for total number of views (25%)
C. Judging by Sponsor based on a ranking of 1- 5 based on following two criteria (50%):
a. Persuasiveness and effectiveness of telling the organizations growth story
b. Creativity and originality of the video
On or about 9/1/2020, Captains of Finalists will be contacted by Sponsor via email, phone or mail (exact method(s) of notification to be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion) and notified as to whether or not their Organization has won the Grand Prize. If the Captain cannot be reached after reasonable effort as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion, or if the Organization is subsequently deemed ineligible or in violation of these Official Rules, then the Grand Prize will be forfeited by such Organization and Sponsor shall not have any liability or obligation of any kind to such Organization under any legal theory beyond award of Preliminary Prize to such Organization (Organization may retain the Preliminary Prize under such circumstances). In such an event, the Finalist with the next highest score in the Final Competition (as set forth above) will be the winner of the Grand Prize originally won by the Organization forfeiting the same.
In the event of a tie, the Finalist whose Finalist Video has the higher score in criteria (C) above will be awarded the Grand Prize.
Names of winning Organizations will be posted on the Finalist Video Site for the Challenge after the end of the Challenge.
