JUDGING #1 (Finalist Determination/Notification): Eligible Submissions will be initially judged on a rolling basis by a panel of judges comprised by the Administrator (“Administrator Judges”). For this first stage of judging, the Administrator Judges will review each of the Submissions (i.e., each Video) and select up to twenty-five (25) Semi-Finalists. The scoring by the Administrator Judges of each element will be based on criteria below, each judged on a scale of 1-10 (10 being the highest), for a maximum of forty (40) points, as follows:
Creativity. How well did the Contestant demonstrate creativity in their Submission?
Relation to theme. How well does the Contestant’s Submission demonstrate how cooking at home makes every day delicious?
Technical Merit. How well did the Contestant demonstrate creativity in their Submission?
Promotional Use. Suitability of Submission for promotional purposes.
When the total scores are tabulated by the Administrator Judges, the top Entries will advance to the next phase of judging. Administrator Judges reserve the right to advance fewer than twenty-five (25) Semi-Finalists’ Entries to the next stage if, in their sole discretion, they do not receive a sufficient number of eligible Entries of sufficient quality. The up to top twenty-five (25) Semi-Finalists’ Entries will then be judged by another judging panel from Sponsors, who will select the top five (5) Finalists based on the judging criteria listed above. For the avoidance of doubt, the ranking of Semi-Finalists by the first Administrator Judges will not be taken into account by the second judging panel from Sponsors (“Sponsors’ Judging Panel”) evaluation of the approximately top twenty-five (25) Semi-Finalists’ Entries. The five (5) Contestants with the highest final scores from the Sponsors’ Judging Panel will be deemed potential Finalists. In the event of a tie in either round of judging, the tie will be broken in favor of the Contestant with the higher “How well does the Contestant’s Submission demonstrate how cooking at home makes every day delicious?” criterion among the tied Contestants; such Contestant will then advance to the next round of the judging or be a Finalist (as applicable). Sponsor reserves the right to advance any Submissions that do not have a total score of at least 25 points, regardless of number of Semi-Finalists listed.
For the avoidance of doubt, if an Entry is selected as one of the Semi-Finalists but NOT as a Finalist, the Contestant will NOT receive any prize.
Each potential Finalist will be contacted by email and or phone using the information contained in the Entry Form, on or about October 2, 2020. Failure to respond to the initial verification notice within seventy-two (72) hours after notification or at reply as undeliverable after two (2) attempts will result in disqualification. Potential Finalists will be required to sign and return, within seventy-two (72) hours of notification (or such time period as indicated thereon), a Declaration or Affidavit of Eligibility (collectively, “Affidavit”) at Sponsors’ option, Liability Release and Indemnification, a Publicity Release where allowed by law, the necessary paperwork for a background check, as well as any release(s) from person(s) who appear in or were involved in the creation of the Submission (if applicable) (collectively, (“Contest Documents”). Affidavit will also include a Grant of Rights from potential Finalists to Sponsors, as detailed above. If the Affidavit of Eligibility, Liability Release and Indemnification, and Publicity Release, or any other portions of the Contest Documents are not returned to Sponsors within the specified time period, the potential Finalist may be disqualified. If a potential Finalist is disqualified for any reason, there will be no prize of any kind awarded and an alternate Finalist may be selected (time permitting), i.e., the Contestant with the next highest score from the immediately preceding judging round. The process will continue until such time that at least five (5) Finalists have been verified to participate in the interview process (time permitting).
In the event of any dispute concerning the identity of any Contestant, the entry will be deemed submitted by the natural person who is the authorized holder of the transmitting e-mail account. “Authorized account holder” is defined as the natural person who is assigned to an e-mail address by an Internet access provider, online service provider, or other organization (e.g., business, educational institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the submitted e-mail address.
Judging #2 (CONTEST Winner Determination/Notification):Each Finalist will then have a phone/video chat interview with designated representatives of Sponsors (but not necessarily same judges involved in the prior round(s) of judging) on or about October 7, 2020. The phone/video chat interview will last for approximately twenty (20) minutes, with the Finalist being asked approximately three to five (3-5) questions regarding the inspiration for his/her Entry. While the specific questions asked of Finalists may differ, all interviewers will select questions from the same list. The Finalists interviews’ will be judged based on the following equally weighted criteria: (a) originality and quality of responses to questions asked, (b) how personable Finalist appears to be, and (c) how articulate the Finalist’s responses were to questions asked. (The ranking of the Finalists by Sponsors’ Judging Panel will not be taken into account in the evaluation of Finalists’ interviews). The Finalist with the highest final point score will be deemed the Contest Winner. In the event of a tie, the Finalist from among all such tied Finalists with the higher/highest score in the “originality and quality of responses to questions asked” criterion will be deemed the Winner. Finalists must be available for phone interview at a date and time (during the above-indicated period) of Sponsors’ choosing. Finalist CANNOT appoint a third-party proxy to participate in the phone interview on his/her behalf. Finalist represents and warrants that he/she will answer interviewer’s questions in a truthful and forthright manner to the best of his/her knowledge, belief and ability, as well as to act in a respectful, courteous and polite manner toward the interviewer.
