HOW WINNERS ARE SELECTED:
Question of the Week
Each week, Three (3) Prize Winners will be selected from all eligible entries received in a random drawing by PrimeSport, an independent agency, whose decisions are final and binding in all matters relating to this sweepstakes. In addition, each month an additional prize winner will be selected from all eligible entries for that month. The drawings will be held on the dates indicated on the chart above. Winners will be notified by email or US mail.
Each month, a winner and two runner-ups will be chosen among eligible entries for that month by a panel of qualified judges, whose interpretation of the rules and decisions are final and binding in all matters pertaining to this Contest. The winner and runner-ups will be notified by e-mail or by US mail. Content submitted by the winner and runner-ups will appear on the web site in the following month.
The photograph and essay for all eligible entries will be judged based on the following criteria: a) appropriateness to subject matter (65%), b) originality (5%), c) clearness of writing and grammar in the essay (15%) and d) image/photo quality and appropriateness (15%). Photos featuring people posed in, near or against the vehicle are discouraged. The highest scoring entries will be selected as the winners. In the event of a tie, the entries involved will be re-judged by an additional qualified judge who will serve as a tiebreaker, and who will judge the entries according to the criteria listed above. Participants whose entries do not win are encouraged to enter again in a succeeding month. In the event there is an insufficient number of qualified entries in any given month, non-winning entries from the previous month(s) will be considered.
