Determining Contest Winners
The Contest winners will be judged in two stages. The first stage will determine the top ten (10) winners for each Contest, and the second stage will determine the top five (5) winners, out the top ten (10) winners, for each Contest.
The first stage of winners will be determined by a panel of judges consisting of employees or representatives of Sponsor based on the most improved body transformations and physiques, with each judge ranking each valid contestant in order from most improved to least improved with the most improved contestant being given a score of one from such judge, second most improved a number of two, and so on. The judges will only have access to the photos submitted by each contestant. An aggregate score of all the judges’ scores will be compiled for each contestant, and the top ten (10) Contest winners will be those contestants with the ten (10) lowest aggregate scores. In the event of any ties in the aggregate scores, then the contestant with the lowest single judge’s score will be ranked above the others, and such process will continue until no further ties.
The top ten (10) winners for each Contest as determined in the first stage will be notified by Sponsor that they have made it to the second stage, and they will have to submit another set of photographs and write a ____ word original and personal essay that answers certain body transformation related questions provided by Sponsor. The panel of judges will then choose the top five (5) winners based solely on the quality of their photographs submitted and on the quality of the essay given using the same scoring system as used for the first stage except that the judges will also include a review of the essay as part of their scoring system. In the second stage, forty percent (40%) of the score will be based on the quality of the photographs and sixty percent (60%) on the quality of the creativity and originality of the essay.
The likelihood of winning a Contest depends upon the number of valid contestants participating in a Contest, and the quality of a contestant’s body transformation compared to all other contestants as determined by the judges. The scores will remain the proprietary, confidential information of Sponsor and will not be disclosed.
