JUDGING: Beginning on 08/20/11, all entries will be reviewed by a panel of judges selected by Sponsor to determine the Grand Prize winner(s). If winning entry was submitted by a team of more than one Entrant, each such Entrant will receive a Grand Prize. Judging to determine the best entry will be based on the following criteria: Extent of Tropo Features Utilized – (40%), End User Experience – (40%) and Perceived Commercial Viability – (20%). In the event of a tie, tied entries will be rejudged based on End User Experience.

PRIZE CONDITIONS: Return of any prize as undeliverable will result in disqualification and an alternate will be selected, except in the event that a prize awarded to any member of a group (of 2 or more team members) is returned as undeliverable, that memberís prize will not be awarded. No substitution, cash equivalent or transfer of prize by winner permitted. The ARV of any electronic prize is subject to price fluctuations in the consumer marketplace based on, among other things, any gap in time between the date the ARV is estimated for purposes of these Official Rules and the date the prize is awarded or redeemed.
