All winners (collectively, the “Winners”) will be announced by Thursday, 11 July 2013 and will be notified via telephone and email.
In the event that a winner is unable to accept a prize, an alternate winner will be selected by the panel of judges. Winners will be required to complete and sign an Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability Release, and, where legal, a Publicity Release, all of which must be returned within thirty (30) days of attempted prize notification or the prize will be forfeited and awarded to an alternate Winner. In the event of non-compliance with these Official Rules, or if a prize or prize notification is unclaimed or returned as undeliverable, the prize will be forfeited and may be awarded to an alternate Winner.
