Finalist Prize Judging: At the end of Entry Period #1, a panel of qualified judges will select three (3) potential finalists (each, a “Finalist”) from the Qualified Submissions received during Entry Period #1; at the end of Entry Period #2, a panel of qualified judges will select three (3) potential Finalists from the Qualified Submissions received during Entry Period #2; at the end of Entry Period #3, a panel of qualified judges will select three (3) potential Finalists from the Qualified Submissions received during Entry Period #3; at the end of Entry Period #4, a panel of qualified judges will select three (3) potential Finalists from the Qualified Submissions received during Entry Period #4; and at the end of Entry Period #5, a panel of qualified judges will select three (3) potential Finalists from the Qualified Submissions received during Entry Period #5, in each case, according to the criteria provided by the applicable judges at the start of each Entry Period and made available at https://twitter.com/fortnitegame. Non-winning Qualified Submissions from one (1) Entry Period will not be included in the judging for any other Entry Period. Judging scores will not be revealed. Sponsor reserves the right to select fewer than the stated number of Finalist(s) for any Entry Period if it does not receive a sufficient number of Qualified Submissions for an Entry Period.
The Entrants who submitted the highest scoring Qualified Submission(s) for each Entry Period will be notified of their status as a potential Finalist at the email address associated with such Qualified Submissions’ YouTube account at the time of submission within five (5) business days of the end of the applicable Entry Period, or such other time as reasonably required by Sponsor for such notification. Upon formal notification from Sponsor, a potential Finalist shall have five (5) business days from the date such notice was emailed to respond and provide any information or materials requested by Sponsor, including a Prize Acceptance and Release Form (“Release”). Such response from a potential Finalist must be delivered to the email address from which Sponsor’s notification was sent or, at Sponsor’s sole option, another email address specified in the notification.
The date of receipt by Sponsor shall be decisive for a potential Finalist’s compliance with the deadlines set forth in this section. The failure by any potential Finalist to timely respond to any notification or request for materials or information may result in disqualification. In such cases, Sponsor may select an alternate potential Finalist from among the remaining Qualified Submissions received for the applicable Entry Period.
Unless restricted by applicable law, each potential Finalist (and, if an eligible minor, such potential Finalist’s parent or legal guardian) will be required to complete and return the Release in accordance with the deadlines set forth in this section. An alternate potential Finalist may be selected from among the remaining Qualified Submissions received for the applicable Entry Period if a potential Finalist: (i) cannot be reached; (ii) fails to obtain all signatures on the Release and to return the documents in a timely manner as required pursuant to these Official Rules; or (iii) cannot or will not accept or receive the prize for any reason.
A potential Finalist will only be deemed a Finalist once the verification process has been completed by Sponsor pursuant to these Official Rules.
Potential Finalists will also be required to provide certain payment information to Sponsor, including any required tax information forms, in order to receive the prize. Sponsor may withhold payment of the prize if a potential Finalist fails to provide the applicable payment forms to Sponsor in a timely manner.
ENTRANTS WILL NOT BE SPECIFICALLY PAID FOR THEIR SUBMISSIONS or for granting Licensed Parties any of these rights.
While Sponsor will seek to post the Submission in the form as provided at the time of entry, each Entrant (and, if an eligible minor, such Entrant’s parent or legal guardian) agrees that due to technical limitations and internal standards, Submissions may be altered from their original form and that Sponsor reserves the right to modify the Submission in its sole discretion, including adding its logo or other trademarks. Sponsor may post Submissions in any order or sequence, with or without commentary, and may select an image to serve as a thumbnail in its sole discretion.
At any time before, during or after the Contest Period, Sponsor may, in its discretion, choose to post or distribute one or more Submissions, the creator’s name and profile information online (including Facebook pages, Twitter feeds, YouTube channels, and third-party websites) for promotional and entertainment purposes only. Posting of this/these Submission(s) will not mean that said Submissions are eligible to win or are a potential Finalist. Entrant (and, if an eligible minor, Entrant’s parent or legal guardian) understands that users of these sites may share, comment on (including negatively), and re-post their Submissions. Any requests by Entrants to have a Submission removed from consideration will be accommodated to the extent practically possible. Sponsor is not responsible for third party re-posting of Submissions.
In the event Sponsor is prevented from continuing with the Contest as contemplated herein by any event beyond its control, including but not limited to fire, flood, earthquake, explosion, labor dispute or strike, act of God or public enemy, or any federal, state or local government law, order, or regulation, or other cause not reasonably within Sponsor’s control (each a "Force Majeure" event or occurrence), then subject to any governmental approval which may be required, Sponsor shall have the right to modify, suspend, or terminate the Contest.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, some countries, states, provinces, or other jurisdictions do not allow the limitation of liability as stated above, so the above terms may not fully apply to Entrant. Instead, in such jurisdictions, the foregoing limitations shall apply only to the extent permitted by the laws of such jurisdictions.
The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these Official Rules shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision. In the event that any provision is determined to be invalid or otherwise unenforceable or illegal, these Official Rules shall otherwise remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with their terms as if the invalid or illegal provision were not contained herein. Sponsor’s failure to enforce any provision in these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.
