6. SELECTION OF WINNERS

In all cases the draws will be initiated by a Contest administrator (human) and processed by an algorithm (computer program) that simulates a random draw (the “Random Draw”). Any attempt to manipulate or tamper with the winner selection system or the database of entries will result in disqualification and possible criminal prosecution. For the purposes of this Contest, a “Day” shall mean a calendar day that begins at 12:00:00 AM (MST) and ends at 11:59:59 PM (MST). A “Week” shall begin on Wednesday and end on Tuesday.

Grand Prize Draw:

There will be two grand prize draws.

A Random Draw for the $5,000 Grand Prize will be conducted on or before Oct 23, 2016 in Vancouver, BC, by an independent contest judging organization, from all eligible entries received during Part One (August 15, 2016 through October 9, 2016) of the Contest.

A Random Draw for the $15,000 Grand Prize will be conducted on or before May 16, 2017 in Vancouver, BC, by an independent contest judging organization, from all eligible entries received during both Part One AND Part Two (August 15, 2017 through May 2, 2017) of the Contest.

A maximum of one (1) Grand Prize will be awarded per Participant household.

Odds of being selected depend upon the total number of eligible entries received during the Contest Period, or applicable portion thereof. The Sponsors or their designated representative will make up to three (3) attempts to contact the selected Participant by email within five (5) business days of the Grand Prize Draw Date. If the selected Participant: (i) cannot be contacted within three (3) attempts or five (5) business days of the Draw Date (whichever occurs first); or (ii) there is a return of any notification as undeliverable, then the selected Participant will be disqualified and an alternate Participant will be randomly selected from among the remaining eligible entries. If time permits, the process noted above will be repeated, up to 3 times, until a selected Participant has been successfully contacted and the Grand Prize has been awarded or there are no eligible entries remaining.

Weekly Prize Draws:

For each Week during the Contest Period a Random Draw for that Week’s prizes will be conducted in Vancouver, BC, by an independent contest judging organization, from all eligible entries received for a particular prize during that Week. At the time of entry, Participants may choose which weekly prize each of their entries will count towards. Maximum one (1) Weekly Prize per Participant household for the duration of the Contest. Weekly winners will be selected within five (5) business days of the corresponding prize Week. 

Odds of being selected depend upon the total number of eligible entries received for the corresponding prize during a given Week. Unselected entries will not roll over into subsequent weekly draws. The Sponsors or their designated representative will make up to three (3) attempts to contact the selected Participant by email within five (5) business days of being selected. If the selected Participant: (i) cannot be contacted within three (3) attempts or five (5) business days of being selected (whichever occurs first); or (ii) there is a return of any notification as undeliverable, then the selected Participant will be disqualified and an alternate Participant will be randomly selected from among the remaining eligible entries received. If time permits, the process noted above will be repeated, up to 3 times, until a selected Participant has been contacted and the Weekly Prize has been awarded or there are no eligible entries remaining.

Other Prize Draws:

For each Week during the Contest Period a Random Draw for that Week’s Other Prizes will be conducted in Vancouver, BC, by an independent contest judging organization, from all eligible entries received during that Week. Maximum one (1) Other Prize per Participant household for the duration of the Contest. Other Prize winners will be selected within ten (10) business days of the corresponding prize Week. Other Prizes will be equally distributed between the Western Region and the Central Region.

Odds of being selected depend upon the total number of eligible entries received during a given Week. Unselected entries will not roll over into subsequent draws. The Sponsors or their designated representative will make up to three (3) attempts to contact the selected Participant by email within five (5) business days of being selected. If the selected Participant: (i) cannot be contacted within three (3) attempts or five (5) business days of being selected (whichever occurs first); or (ii) there is a return of any notification as undeliverable, then the selected Participant will be disqualified and an alternate Participant will be randomly selected from among the remaining eligible entries received. If time permits, the process noted above will be repeated, up to 3 times, until a selected Participant has been contacted and the Other Prize has been awarded or there are no eligible entries remaining.

7. PRIZE REDEMPTION (HOW TO GET YOUR GRAND PRIZES and WEEKLY PRIZES)
