JUDGING: A panel of qualified megabus.com judges will review the eligible entries received during the contest period and select the winner on or about May 15, 2017 based on the following judging criteria: Originality/Creativity/Brand Tie In (50%) and Artistic Ability (50%). In the event of a tie, the judges will break the tie by selecting the tied entrant who received the highest points from the Judges for originality as the potential winner. In the event a tie remains, the tied entries will be judged by an additional tie-breaking judge, using the judging criteria, to determine which of the tied entrants will be the potential winner. Decisions of Judges are final and binding with respect to all matters related to the contest. Winning is subject to verification of eligibility. Potential winner will be notified by email. Potential winner may be required to execute and return an affidavit of eligibility, release of liability, W9, and, except where prohibited, publicity release (collectively, “Contest Documents”) within two (2) days of such notification. Noncompliance within this time period, with these Official Rules or the return of or inability to deliver any prize/prize notification may result in disqualification and, at megabus.com’s discretion, and time permitting, an alternate potential winner may be selected from among all eligible remaining entries based on the judging criteria.
