Winner Selection: On November 9th, 2020 at noon, the finalists will be announced and be in the running to win one of three prizes. The finalists will be chosen by a panel of five (5) EdgyPet judges based on the following criteria: star quality (25%), unique POV (25%), entertainment value (25%), pet centricity (25%). Three winners will then be determined based on the number of in-app points accumulated over a period of five (5) days, commencing December 10th at 12:01am and ending at 11:59pm on December 18, 2020, as detailed below (“Voting Period”).

On December 10th at 12.01am, the finalists will be able to post their video on the EdgyPet app under their pet’s profile and begin accumulating points. During the Voting Period, finalists will receive one (1) point for every love associated with the finalist’s content post, one (1) point per love for any additional post created by the finalist on the EdgyPet app, and five (5) points for each new user that downloads the EdgyPet app and creates a pet profile. Points will not be awarded for new users who download the app but do not create a pet profile. New user points will be tracked via a unique tracking link that each finalist will need to generate themselves by clicking “Share EdgyPet” on the app’s menu screen. Points will only be awarded for new users that come through this link. The finalists who have accumulated the most points as of 11:59 pm on December 18, 2020 will win first, second and third prize respectively.

Notification and Requirements of Contest Winners: An individual is not deemed a winner unless and until he/she has complied with these Official Rules. The individuals that have accumulated the most points will be notified by email on December 4th, 2020 and announced publicly on December 8th. If a potential winner does not respond and comply with the instructions in the notification within 72 hours after Sponsor sends the notification or is not in compliance with these Official Rules, he/she will forfeit the prize and the Sponsor may select an alternate potential winner from the point results.

Except where prohibited, a potential winner will be required to complete and return an affidavit of eligibility and liability/publicity release (“Affidavit/Release”). If the potential winners fail to sign and return the Affidavit/Release within the required time period, an alternate finalist will be selected in his/her place from the point results. By participating, each winner, except where legally prohibited, grants permission for Sponsor and its designees to announce his/her name on the Sponsor’s Website, social media channels and any other communication channel it deems, as a winner and to use his/her name, address (city and state), video, voice and/or other likeness and prize information for advertising, trade, and promotional purposes without further compensation, in all media now known or hereafter discovered, worldwide in perpetuity, without notice or review or approval.
