4. WINNER SELECTION
To be eligible for the Contest, an eligible Entry must be received during the Entry Period. During the Judging by Sponsor Period, each Entry will be individually judged and scored by qualified judges appointed by Sponsor based on the following required criteria: (a) Showcases the Nominee organization’s mission and activities, within their respective category, bringing to life the passion, energy, scope and enthusiasm of staff and volunteers: (b) addresses an urgent and immediate need in the community; (c) how a Defender vehicle will benefit the organization’s ability to serve the community both short and long term; and d) how one or more specific features of the Defender vehicle will be used to enhance operations or expand your mission. These scores will be weighted accordingly: (a) 10%, (b) 30%, (c) 30%, and (d) 30%. Up to five (5) Entries that receive the highest combined scores according to the criteria listed above in each of the first five (5) Categories noted in Section 2, in the sole determination of the judges and subject to the verification eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules, will be determined eligible for public voting (each a “Finalist Entry”). In the event of a tie, the tied Entries will be re-judged by an additional panel of judges appointed by the Sponsor who will serve as a tiebreaker, and which will evaluate tied Entries according to the criteria listed above. If following re-judging the entries are still tied, the Entry that received the highest score for criteria (d), as determined by the qualified judges in their sole discretion, will be deemed a winner (subject to verification) from among the tied Entries. Potential Finalist Entries will be notified by telephone or email at Sponsor’s discretion. Sponsor reserves the right to select no winner for any Category submission phase, if, in its sole discretion, it does not receive a sufficient number of eligible and qualified Entries for that Category submission phase. Odds of being selected as an eligible Finalist Entry depend on: (i) the caliber of each Nominator’s Entry; (ii) the number of eligible Entries received during the Entry Submission Period; and (iii) the score obtained during the Judging by Sponsor Period. Judging is scheduled to be completed on August 25, 2023.
Finalists from the 2021 Defender Above & Beyond Service Awards and 2022 Defender Service Awards (who did not win their respective categories) may choose to enter category 6 as Defender Service Honourees, as outlined in Section 2. These entrants will move directly to Public Voting (Section 4 (b)) if they submit previously used videos. If Honourees use new videos, the videos will be checked for compliance with contest rules before moving to Public Voting. Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify a video for any reason.
(b) PUBLIC VOTING
Each eligible Finalist Entry may be voted on by the general public during the Public Voting Period. To vote, a member of the public must visit Sponsor’s website located at www.landroverusa.com/experiences/events-and-sponsorships/defender-service-awards/index.html and www.landrover.ca/en/experiences/sponsorship/defender-service-awards/index.html to view the Finalist Entries and cast a vote (a “Vote”) for a Finalist Entry during the Public Voting Period by entering a valid email address (a “Registered Voter”). Canadian voters may vote for US or Canadian Finalists. US voters may vote for US or Canadian Finalists. A Registered Voter may vote for multiple Finalist Entries; however, they may only vote once per day (defined as 12:00:01 am ET to 11:59:59 pm ET) per category for each Finalist Entry during the Public Voting Period. “SHARING,” “LIKING,” “RETWEETING,” OR OTHERWISE LINKING TO OR FORWARDING THE CONTEST INFORMATION ON SOCIAL MEDIA, VIA EMAIL, OR IN ANY OTHER ONLINE OR OFFLINE MANNER IS NOT A REQUIREMENT OR PART OF THIS CONTEST AND WILL NOT IMPROVE A FINALIST ENTRY’S CHANCES OF WINNING. Decisions of Sponsor are final relating to all aspects of the online voting process and results. If it is discovered that attempts were made by a Registered Voter (or any individual purporting to be a Registered Voter) to: (i) vote more than one (1) time per day (as defined above ) during the Public Voting Period; (ii) use (or attempt to use) multiple names, identities and/or any automated, script, macro, robotic or other program(s) to submit Votes; (iii) engage in systematic voting from the same computer/IP address; or (iv) violate any of these Official Rules, then it may result in the disqualification, in the sole and absolute discretion of the Sponsor, of the Votes and/or Entry to which such Votes relate.
All Votes are subject to verification at any time. The Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to require proof of identity and/or eligibility (in a form acceptable to the Sponsor — including, without limitation, government-issued photo identification) from any Registered Voter to participate in this Contest or for any Votes entered, or purportedly entered, by such voter to be considered valid for the purposes of this Contest. If an email address used to vote is invalid, the attempted vote will be disqualified.
The Finalist Entry in each Category with the highest number of votes at the end of the Public Voting Period will be deemed the eligible prize winner in that Category (subject to verification of both Nominator and Nominee) and once verification is complete and the selected Nominee and Nominator complete all required steps for Nominee to be confirmed a prize winner, a prize will be awarded to the Nominee. Nominator will not receive a prize unless Nominator nominates a US 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization or Canadian registered charity with which they are associated in compliance with these Official Rules and meets all of the requirements set out in these Official Rules to be selected and confirmed as a winner. In the event of a tie, the tied Entries will be re-judged by an additional panel of judges appointed by the Sponsor who will serve as a tiebreaker and which will evaluate tied Entries according to the criteria listed above. If following the re-judging the entries are still tied, the Entry that received the highest score for “Describe the urgent and immediate needs the Nominee organization’s efforts address in the community,” as determined by the qualified judges in their sole discretion will be deemed a winner (subject to verification) from among the tied Entries. The decisions of the judges will be final and binding on all matters relating to the Contest, without right of appeal. Sponsor reserves the right to select a winner based on the judging criteria described herein in the event any of the Finalist Entries are disqualified. Odds of winning a prize depend on: (i) the caliber of each Nominator’s Entry; and (ii) on the number of eligible Votes received during the Public Voting Period. Potential winners (both Nominators and their respective Nominees) are not actual winners until their eligibility has been verified, and it is determined to Sponsor’s satisfaction that they have complied with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules.
