WINNER SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION: After the conclusion of the Contest Period, all design Entries will undergo a blind review, without name or position, by a design team, as determined and identified by Sponsor in Sponsor's sole discretion. All designs will be judged on creativity and artistic quality, as well as how well they represent SCAD. Sponsor shall have the sole discretion to select two (2) potential Major Prize winners and a various number Minor Prize winners, it determines in its sole discretion, from among all of the eligible Entries received during the Contest Period based on this and other criteria that it feels appropriate, in its sole discretion. The decisions of the Sponsor, including any identified judges, design team and/or designated faculty member, are final and binding on all matters relating to the Contest. The winning designs will become property of SCAD.
The Sponsor reserves the right to extend the Contest Period, the right to select fewer potential winners and the right to cancel the Contest and not award any Prizes if, in its sole discretion, there are not a sufficient number of eligible and qualified Entries received during the Contest Period. The decisions of the Sponsor are final and binding on all matters relating to the Contest.
The potential winners will be notified by SCAD on or around twenty one (21) days after the Contest Period on the social media platform and account used to submit such Entry (the "Prize Notification"). The potential winners must then follow the prize claim instructions provided in the Prize Notification or the Prize will be forfeited in its entirety. The potential winners will be required to send an email to a representative of the Sponsor and may be required to submit a valid email address, mailing address, telephone number and/or other information. Except where prohibited, the potential winners (or such potential winner's parent/legal guardian if a minor in his/her state of residence) will be required to sign and return an affidavit of eligibility and liability and publicity release, in form and substance satisfactory to the Sponsor, in order to claim his/her Prize. If a potential winner cannot be contacted, fails to execute and return the affidavit of eligibility and liability and publicity release or provide any other requested information within the required time period (as applicable), or does not comply with these Official Rules, such potential winner will be disqualified and forfeit the applicable Prize. If a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, the applicable Prize may be awarded to an alternate winner selected from among all applicable eligible Entries. Only three (3) alternate winners may be determined, after which the applicable Prize will remain unawarded. The potential winners who complies with all of the foregoing requirements and ultimately receives a prize is known as a "Winner". The Winners may be announced by the Sponsor via Facebook, Twitter (@SCADdotedu) and/or Instagram (@scaddotedu).
