After the applicable deadline for the Challenge, Sponsor will review and vote on all eligible video submissions based on the following criteria: 33.3% on creativity, 33.3% on originality, and 33.3% on appropriateness to the theme of the Challenge. One (1) or more Finalists with the lowest scoring video submission for the applicable Challenge will be eliminated from the Competition, unless another Finalist is disqualified for non-compliance with the applicable Challenge requirements or for any other reason as determined by Sponsor at its sole discretion (e.g, fails to submit a video by the deadline, content of video violates Challenge rules, etc.). In the event of a tie, the Finalist whose Challenge Video received a lower score in the creativity category will be eliminated.
