ACCEPTANCE OF RULES:

By entering the Contest, your parent or guardian is agreeing, for themselves and for you, to be bound by the terms of these Official Rules.  Zenni is not responsible for late, incomplete, void, corrupted, misdirected, or otherwise erroneous entries, or for any problems, malfunctions or technical difficulties that arise in the entry process.  Any incomplete or incorrect entries will be void. Proof of submission will not be deemed to be proof of posting. All entries submitted in compliance with these Official Rules and not disqualified are considered “eligible entries.”

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS:

All photos and designs must be family appropriate and not: (i) feature or reference third party trademarks or logos not belonging to Zenni, (ii) contain vulgar, obscene or indecent language; or (iii) defame or libel any third party.  All designs must be original, must not have been previously published or won any previous award, and must not contain any material that would infringe upon any third party’s rights. No person(s) can appear in the photos, just the design of the glasses.

One (1) entry per person only.  Duplicate submissions for an individual will be disqualified. In the event two or more people submit substantially similar Designs, only the earliest-posted design will count. 

Sponsor may or may not further use, post or distribute any design submitted by an entrant on online or offline media, in its discretion, but is not obligated to do so.  Sponsor reserves the right, in its absolute discretion, to determine if any particular design is appropriate for the Contest.  

JUDGING/SELECTION OF WINNERS:

Eligible entries will be reviewed by a panel of judges who will select up to a maximum of one  (1) winner per age group (4-7, 8-10 and 11-13) for a total of up to three  winners.  The winners will be chosen based on the following criteria: (i) creativity (33%); (ii) artistic skills (33%); and (iii) public appeal (34%).  In assessing public appeal, the judges may give as little or as much weight as they deem relevant to the number of likes or comments posted in connection with any eligible entry.

Use of any automated method to post likes or comments, paying others to post them, or engaging in any other conduct deemed inappropriate, disruptive or unsportsmanlike as determined by Sponsor in its discretion, is prohibited, and may result in disqualification. 

The decisions of the judging panel are final and binding.

The parent or guardian who posted the eligible entry for each potential winner may be required to sign and return an affidavit of eligibility, prize/publicity release, and an assignment of rights to his/her Design to Zenni within two (2) days after delivery of same to the potential Winner.  Failure to sign the required documents during this timeframe may result in disqualification and award of the prize to an alternate winner.
