The potential winners will be notified, on or about February 20, 2013, via a comment from @jumpman23 left on the original winning photo Submission, stating they have won. If a potential winner declines to accept the prize, does not respond within 24 hours of notification, cannot verify their eligibility or has violated any of these Official Rules, then an alternate entrant may be selected, at Sponsor’s discretion and if time permits, in his/her place from the remaining eligible Submissions based on the above Judging Criteria. Only two (2) alternate entrants will be selected, after which the prize will remain un-awarded. The decisions of the Judges are final.
