Winner Selection: Five entries will be shortlisted and will be notified by a comment on their image within 7 days of the end of the Phase in which their entry won a prize. Entries will be judged by a panel of judges.
Those shortlisted will be the ones who submit the most original, creative, on-theme and interesting photo. The overall winner will be determined by the judges.
No purchase is necessary to enter. A valid Facebook account and internet access is required. By entering, the winner agrees to provide Philips with information behind their submitted photography, including where it was taken, why it was taken, what they like about it, what sound it represents, and so forth. This information will be created into a script for an audio recording to accompany the image at the gallery space.
No bulk, third party or organised group entries will be accepted. If it becomes apparent that a participant is using a computer(s) to circumvent this condition by, for example, the use of ‘script’, brute force’ or any other automated means, that person’s entries will be disqualified and any prize award will be void.
No responsibility is accepted for entries lost, damaged or delayed or as a result of any network, computer hardware or software failure of any kind. Proof of sending will not be accepted as proof of receipt.
Winners will be notified by way of a comment on their image from the Philips Press Office team. In the event of unforeseen circumstances the Promoter reserves the right to substitute the prize for an alternative of equal or greater value. Those shortlisted who are not contactable or who fail to return contact within 7 days after reasonable efforts have been made to contact them will be disqualified and a reserve entrant selected.
The prizes will be dispatched to the winner within one week following the Citiscape event on 5th July 2012.
