·  Selection of Winners.  All videos approved for entry will be available for voting on the facebook contest application from 11/13/13 9:00AM EST through 11/18/13 at 9AM EST. People can vote once per 24 hours.  The four (4) entrants who submitted the videos that received the most votes will become the finalists for the contest.  In the case of a tie, the station will choose which entrant moves on to the finals. Finalists must be available from 6am to 10am EST on 11/21/13 to appear on THE Morning Show or they will be disqualified and the entrant who submitted the video with the next highest number of votes will become a finalist.

On 11/19/13, each judge on a panel of 6 judges (3 WJXT employees and 3 Mad Men Marketing and/or Brandon Pest Control employees) will rank the 4 final videos according to the judge’s preference to determine the winner. (A ranking of “1” is the highest, “2” is the next highest, and so forth). The entrant with the video that received the highest overall ranking (which is the lowest numeric score) will be the winner. In the case of a tie, the voting process will be repeated by the judges on the videos of those entrants that are tied. If there remains a tie after the voting is repeated, then the winner will be selected in a random drawing of the remaining entrants.

All 4 finalists will appear on THE Morning Show on 11/21/13 and the winner will be revealed LIVE.

Potential winner(s) will be notified that they are a finalist at the phone number or email address they provided when entering the Contest. Contest winner(s) must execute and return any required affidavit of eligibility and/or release of liability/prize acceptance form within ten (10) days of winning or being notified of winning (sooner for time sensitive prizes), or prize(s) will be forfeited and an alternate winner may be selected. If a potential winner cannot be contacted, fails to sign and return the required affidavit of eligibility and/or liability/publicity release within the required time period, or if a prize or prize notification is returned as undeliverable, the potential winner forfeits the prize. Station reserves the right to contact all contest entrants to confirm the registration entry.
