IV. HOW AND WHEN WINNERS WILL BE SELECTED AND NOTIFIED
All Food Selfies will be assigned a number between 1 and 25 in each of the following categories: 1) Composition; 2) Creativity; 3) Appearance of the completed dish; and 4) Overall Appeal. Those numbers will be added together to make the Food Selfie Judging Score (the “Judging Score”), which will be a maximum of 100. The weekly semi-finalist will be the Entrant with the highest Judging Score from that week’s eligible entries. In the event of a tie, the semi-finalist will be the Entrant with the highest overall appeal score, if a tie remains, then the Entrant with the highest Appearance score; if a tie remains, then the Entrant with the highest Creativity score; lastly, if a tie persists, the Entrant with the highest Composition score.
Semi-finalist will be contacted by phone or email. If semi-finalist does not contact LIVE at the number or email specified within 24 hours, the semi-finalist will be disqualified and an alternate will be selected from the remaining valid entries from the same entry pool. Failure to timely comply with any requirement of these terms and conditions will result in the semi-finalist entrant being deemed ineligible for any prize. Each Canadian resident who is a potential winner will be required to answer correctly a mathematical skill testing question without assistance of any kind whether mechanical or otherwise to be declared a semi-finalist and be eligible to collect a prize.
In the event a semi-finalist is deemed ineligible, fails to comply with contest procedures, or is not available to claim prize during specified dates, then an alternate semi-finalist will be selected with the next highest Judging Score from the same entry pool as the original entry was selected. Final determination of semi-finalists is always conditional on verification of eligibility and compliance with all rules and procedures.
B. Grand Prize Winner
The pool of Entrants for the Grand Prize will consist of the Food Selfies submitted during the Entry Period up to a maximum of the 50 Food Selfies that receive the 50 highest Judging Scores. On Friday, August 8th the Food Selfies of the Grand Prize Entrants will be posted on the LIVE website. Viewers will have an opportunity to vote for their favorite Food Selfies by visiting www.LIVEKellyandMichael.com and following the voting instructions. Note: viewers may submit no more than one vote per 24 hours. Sponsor is not responsible for any electronic, computer or technical problems that prevent a viewer from voting. Any votes that exceed a viewer’s daily allotment will be discarded.
The Grand Prize Winner will be the Entrant whose Food Selfie has the highest score from adding 80% of the Judging Score to 20% of the Viewer Votes (the “Grand Prize Score”). In the event of a tie, the winner will be the Entrant with the highest Judging Score. If a tie remains, then the winner will be the Grand Prize Entrant with the highest Appearance score; if a tie remains, then the winner will be the Grand Prize Entrant with the highest Creativity score; if a tie persists, the winner will be the Grand Prize Entrant with the highest Composition score; lastly, if a tie persists, the winner will be the Grand Prize Entrant with the highest Overall Appeal score.
Winner will be contacted by phone or email. If winner does not contact LIVE at the number or email specified within 24 hours, the winner will be disqualified and an alternate with the next highest Grand Prize Score will be selected from the remaining valid entries from the Grand Prize Entrants. Failure to timely comply with any requirement of these terms and conditions will result in the winner being deemed ineligible for any prize. Each Canadian resident who is a potential winner will be required to answer correctly a mathematical skill testing question without assistance of any kind whether mechanical or otherwise to be declared a winner and be eligible to collect a prize.
In the event a winner is deemed ineligible, fails to comply with contest procedures, or is not available to claim prize during specified dates, then an alternate winner will be the next highest Grand Prize Score.
