7.  Determining the Finalists and Grand Prize Winner.

Determining the Finalists:  After the conclusion of the Entry Period, each Submission will be reviewed by a panel of judges (the “Judges”) assembled by Sponsor, who will review and judge all eligible Submissions based on the following judging criteria (collectively, the “Judging Criteria”):

  • 33.3% quality of work done to the vehicle in Submission;
  • 33.4% creativity; and
  • 33.3% the Submission that best represents the spirit of the ENEOS brand.

Based on the total score the Judges assign to each Submission using the Judging Criteria, up to ten (10) Submissions will be ultimately selected by the Judges and each individual who submitted a selected Submission will be potential “Finalists,” subject to confirmation that the potential Finalist has met the eligibility requirements and complied with these Official Rules.  If there is a tie after the Judges apply the Judging Criteria, Sponsor will bring in a tie breaking Judge to apply the same Judging Criteria to break the tie and determine the Finalist.

Determining the Grand Prize Winner:  Beginning on or about September 14, 2018 through September 20, 2018 (the “Public Voting Period”), up to ten (10) selected Finalist entries will be posted on Instagram and/or on www.eneos.us/sema-contest-2018 (“Contest Website”) to be rated by other users (“Users”).  Users must be thirteen (13) years of age or older to vote.  Users will be asked to judge the Submissions based on the Public Voting Criteria (defined below).  Users are required to critically evaluate each Submission and vote for their favorite Submission based on: (i) 50% based on the public appeal of the Submission; and (ii) 50% based on originality and creativity of the Submission (collectively, the “Public Voting Criteria”).

During the Public Voting Period, Users may vote on each Submission a maximum of once.  Users can vote by following the instructions to participate in the voting process.  Any entrant or other User offering or using, or attempting to use a “cheat,” payment, or other incentive (such as, the offer or acceptance of any benefit, compensation, gift or award in conjunction with voting or not voting for a given entry), or any other means to obtain votes or manipulate the results of the public voting may be disqualified and any votes earned by those means may be void, in Sponsor’s sole discretion.  If attempts are made to vote in excess of the stated limits or obtain votes by means other than as specifically set forth in this Section, Sponsor may, in its sole discretion, disqualify any related entrant or votes.  Use of any automated, script, software, macro or robotic program or any other automated or improper means to submit or gain votes may result in the disqualification, in the sole discretion of the Sponsor, of the entry to which such votes relate, of the votes themselves, or both.  Sponsor shall have the sole discretion to institute policies, protocols and procedures designed to enforce the intent of such restriction.

The Submission that receives the highest valid vote total during the Public Voting Period will receive a score of ten (10) points.  All other Submissions will be given a score for their valid vote totals in proportion to the Submission receiving the highest valid vote total.  For example, if the highest valid vote total received by a Submission is one hundred (100) valid votes, that Submission would receive ten (10) points for the “Public Voting” component of the total score.  As such, a Submission receiving twenty (20) valid votes during the Public Voting Period would then receive two (2) “Public Voting” points, since twenty (20) out of one hundred (100) valid votes is 1/5th of the highest valid public vote total.  For the avoidance of doubt, the “Public Voting” score is dependent upon the number of valid votes a Submission receives as well as the highest valid vote total received by any Submission during the Public Voting Period.

After the conclusion of the Public Voting Period, each Submission will then be reviewed by the Judges assembled by Sponsor, who will re-review and judge all eligible Finalist Submission based on the Judging Criteria.  Each of the Judges will have ten percent (10%) of the final score and the Public Vote will make up the last ten percent (10%).  Based on the total score the Judges assign to each Submission using the Public Vote and scores from the Judges using the Judging Criteria, one (1) winning Submission, or “Winning Vehicle,” will be ultimately selected by the Judges and the individual Finalist of that Submission will be the potential “Grand Prize Winner”, and for the other two (2) Finalists who are not selected as the Grand Prize Winner, the one (1) Finalist with the second highest score will be selected as the “2nd Place Winner” and the other as the “3rd Place Winner”, subject to confirmation that each Winner has met the eligibility requirements and complied with these Official Rules.  In the event of a tie during the winner selection process, the Sponsor will break the tie using the highest ranking submission in the “creativity” category.  If there still remains a tie, Sponsor will bring in a tie-breaking Judge to apply the same Judging Criteria to determine the winners.

8.  Finalist and Grand Prize Winner Notification.  The potential Finalists will be notified by mail, email and/or other method (as selected by Sponsor) on or about September 5, 2018, unless extended by Sponsor.  The Winners will be notified by mail, email and/or other method (as selected by Sponsor) on or about September 21, 2018, unless extended by Sponsor.  The Sponsor is not responsible for false, incorrect, changed, incomplete or illegible contact information.  Notification is deemed to have occurred immediately upon sending of an email or other electronic message, one (1) day after sending via a delivery service or two (2) days after mailing.  The potential Finalists and Winners will be required to execute and return an affidavit of eligibility, a liability release, a publicity release and services and performances agreements (collectively, “Prize Acceptance Documents”) within five (5) days of date of issuance.  As part of completing the Prize Acceptance Documents, each Finalist may be required to provide proof of vehicle ownership of the vehicle that appears in the winning Submission.  If such documents are not returned within the specified time period, a prize or prize notification is returned as undeliverable, Sponsor is unable to contact a potential Finalist or Grand Prize Winner or a potential Finalist or Grand Prize Winner is not in compliance with these Official Rules, the prize(s) will be forfeited and, at Sponsor’s discretion, an alternate winner selected.

Non-compliance shall result in disqualification and award of the prize(s) to an alternate winner.  If any potential winner is found to be ineligible, or if he or she has not complied with these Official Rules, or declines a prize for any reason prior to award, such potential winner may be disqualified and an alternate potential winner may be selected.  The Sponsor is not responsible for and shall not be liable for late, lost, damaged, intercepted, misdirected, or unsuccessful efforts to notify the potential winners.

14.  Governing Law / Limitation of Liability.  All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of these Official Rules or the rights and obligations of entrants, Sponsor or the Released Parties in connection with the Contest will be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of Illinois, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules or provisions that would cause the application of any other laws.


15.  Dispute Resolution.  The parties each agree to finally settle all disputes only through arbitration; provided, however, the Sponsor shall be entitled to seek injunctive or equitable relief in the state and federal courts in Cook County, Illinois and any other court with jurisdiction over the parties.  In arbitration, there is no judge or jury and review is limited.  The arbitrator’s decision and award is final and binding, with limited exceptions, and judgment on the award may be entered in any court with jurisdiction.  The parties agree that, except as set forth above, any claim, suit, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Contest shall be resolved solely by binding arbitration before a sole arbitrator under the streamlined Arbitration Rules Procedures of JAMS Inc. (“JAMS”) or any successor to JAMS.  In the event JAMS is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within fourteen (14) days of the filing of a “Demand for Arbitration”, then either party can elect to have the arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) or any other mutually agreeable arbitration administration service.  If an in-person hearing is required, then it will take place in Cook County, Illinois.  The federal or state law that applies to these Official Rules will also apply during the arbitration.  Disputes will be arbitrated only on an individual basis and will not be consolidated with any other proceedings that involve any claims or controversy of another party, including any class actions; provided, however, if for any reason any court or arbitrator holds that this restriction is unconscionable or unenforceable, then the agreement to arbitrate doesn’t apply and the dispute must be brought in a court of competent jurisdiction in Cook County, Illinois.  Sponsor agrees to pay the administrative and arbitrator’s fees in order to conduct the arbitration (but specifically excluding any travel or other costs of entrant to attend the arbitration hearing).  Either party may, notwithstanding this provision, bring qualifying claims in small claims court.

16.  No Obligation to Use.  Sponsor shall have no obligation (express or implied) to use any or to otherwise exploit any Submission or, if commenced, to continue the distribution or exploitation thereof, and Sponsor may at any time abandon the use of the Submission for any reason, with or without legal justification or excuse, and entrants shall not be entitled to any damages or other relief by reason thereof.

17.  Dates & Deadlines/Anticipated Number of Contestants.  Because of the unique nature and scope of the Contest, Sponsor reserves the right, in addition to those other rights reserved herein, to modify any date(s) or deadline(s) set forth in these Official Rules or otherwise governing the Contest.  Sponsor cannot accurately predict the number of entrants who will participate in the Contest.

18.  Further Documentation.  If Sponsor shall desire to secure additional assignments, certificates of engagement for the Submission or other documents as Sponsor may reasonably require in order to effectuate the purposes and intents of these Official Rules, then entrant agrees to sign the same upon Sponsor’s request therefor.
