You must also enter an original grilling tip and check the box agreeing that you have read and agree to these Rules. Collectively, this constitutes your Entry into the contest.
Individuals may enter as often as they like, but are only eligible for one prize per Round. The Contest computer, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion, is the official time keeping device for the Contest. Entries become the property of Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or returned.
Entries (i) must be the original and sole creation of the submitting Entrant, and all right, title and interest including but not limited to the copyright in any Entry, must be owned solely by the submitting Entrant; (ii) may not have been submitted in any other competition, (iii) may not have been published; (iv) may not infringe upon any third party's rights, including but not limited to, copyright, patent or trademark, or rights of privacy or publicity, or contain material that is or may be considered defamatory, slanderous or libelous, or portray or depict any person, product or entity in a false light; (v) may not violate any law, rule or regulation; (vi) may not contain any virus, bugs, or other deleterious material; and (vii) may not contain inappropriate content, for example but not limited to, profanity, defamatory statements, words or symbols widely considered offensive to individuals of any certain race, ethnicity, religious, sexual orientation or socioeconomic groups, threats to any person, place, business, or group. Each Entrant warrants and represents that his/her Entry complies with all of those conditions. Any non-complying Entry will subject the Entrant to disqualification in Sponsor’s sole discretion. By submitting an Entry, Entrant grants Sponsor a worldwide, royalty free license in any and all media, now know or hereafter created, to copy, prepare derivative works, and distribute the Entrant’s Entry materials.
Odds of winning depend on the total number of eligible Entries received during the Contest Period. As this is a contest of skill, winning is dependent upon the quality of eligible Entries received and the skill of the individual entrants. When you enter the Contest you can also opt-in to receive promotional offers and emails from Sponsor. You can opt-out of receiving such offers and emails at any time and opting-in does not impact your chances of winning.
A qualified panel of judges will judge the grilling tips in the eligible Entries on the basis of the following criteria:
Originality (50%): How creative and inventive was the content of entrant’s grilling tip?
Usefulness (50%): How useful will the content of entrant’s grilling tip be to other Johnsonville Enthusiast Club members?
Each Entry will then be awarded a score from 0 (poor) to 100 (perfect) in each category. Sponsor will weight and tally all of the scores for each Entry and then rank them according to cumulative score. At the close of each Round, the two eligible Entries with the highest cumulative scores will be declared the “Round Winners.” In the event of a tie, the Round Winners will be the Entry(ies) among the tied Entries with the higher score in the category of Originality. Decisions of judges are final and binding in all respects. Being named a Round Winner is subject to validation and verification of eligibility and compliance with all terms and conditions set forth in these Official Rules. Sponsor reserves the right to select fewer Round Winners if the quality or quantity of eligible Entries is insufficient.
