Any entry or Video (“collectively “Material”) that the Sponsor deems, in its sole discretion, to violate the terms and conditions set forth in these Rules will automatically be disqualified from the Challenge.
All Videos that are deemed appropriate will be submitted to a panel of three executive officers of the Sponsor (“Judges”) for evaluation. The Judges will evaluate the Video submissions on the basis of the expression in the Video of the entrant’s skill in applying the Programs and the multivitamin program, if applicable, to the entrant’s circumstances to create physical, mental, emotional and experiential changes for the entrant, and the entrant’s skill in reflecting these changes in the entrant’s Video. The evaluation of the Judges is final and will not be revealed to any entrant.
Starting on or about October 1, 2012 and finishing on October 31, 2012, the 30 Day Challenge entrants’ Videos will be reviewed by the Judges, and the Prize winners will be selected by the Judges on October 31 2012.

Starting on or about January 1, 2013 and finishing on January 31, 2013, the 90 Day Challenge entrants’ Videos will be reviewed by the Judges, and the Prize winners will be selected by the Judges on January 31, 2013.

BEFORE BEING DECLARED A WINNER, each selected entrant must sign and return within 10 business days of notification a declaration and release prepared by the Sponsor, which, among other things: (i) assigns all intellectual property, including copyright, in and to his/her Materials and waives his/her moral rights therein in favour of the Sponsor; (ii) agrees to indemnify the Sponsor, its advertising and promotion agencies and the competition judges against any and all claims, damages, liabilities, costs, and expenses arising from use of his/her Materials, including without limitation, any claim that his/her Materials infringe a proprietary interest of any third party; and (iii) states that the winner is responsible for reporting and paying any income or other taxes relating to the Prize. In addition, BEFORE BEING DECLARED A WINNER, each selected entrant must sign an agreement (“Winner’s Agreement”) prepared by Sponsor, which, among other things states that:
If a selected entrant cannot be contacted by phone or email within 10 days after notification, fails to return the contest documents within the specified time, or does not agree to the terms and conditions set forth in the Winner’s Agreement, then he/she will forfeit their opportunity to be a winner and either an alternate selected entrant will be chosen by the Judges, or the Prize which the selected entrant would have received will not be awarded.
CHANCE OF WINNING:
The chances of an entry being selected by the Judges to receive any Prize will depend on the number and quality of the eligible entries received in the Category in which an entry is submitted, the degree to which the entrant’s Video reflects physical, mental, emotional and experiential changes undergone by the entrant while following the Programs, and evaluation of the entrant’s Video by the Judges. In addition, the Sponsor may open the Challenge to residents of additional jurisdications, as well as those listed in these Rules. If the number of jurisdictions is increased, the pool of potential entrants will be increased, and this may mean that a greater number of entrants will enter the Challenge; your chances of winning may be reduced if this occurs. No purchase is required at any time; entrants who choose to follow the multivitamin program in their Category will not be evaluated differently for that reason from entrants who do not follow the multivitamin program.
