(iii) Logic and Clarity in Explaining about Elastos in technologies or/and value (40%): Forty Percent of the overall judging score will be based on the ability of your video to represent the Elastos Foundation brand, its values and its mission and how well your video aligns with the concept and the objectives of the Elastos Foundation (as further described in the Submission Guidelines).
The Judges will select up to ten (10) Entries, which Entries score highest based on the Criteria, as finalists (the “Finalists”), on or before April 15, 2018, up to three (3) of which will be selected as Winners. Sponsor will publicly announce the Finalists in a blog post published at https://medium.com/@elastos within 10 days following their selection by the Judges and will open a poll at such time to solicit public voting on the Finalists which poll will be available at https://medium.com/@elastos as well as on Sponsor’s Twitter at https://twitter.com/Elastos_org, Sponsor’s Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/elastosorg/ and Sponsor’s Telegram at https://t.me/elastosgroup (the “Public Poll”). The Public Poll will remain open for seventy-two 72 hours. Sponsor will take into account the results of the Public Poll, however, Sponsor reserves the right to choose the five (5) winning Entries from the Finalists, and their rankings as “First Place Winner”, “Second Place Winner”, “Third Place Winner”, “Fourth Place Winner” and “Fifth Place Winner” in its sole discretion based on the Judges’ evaluation of the Entries in accordance with the Criteria. Sponsor reserves the right to select less or none Winners if, in its sole discretion, no suitable entries are received. There is no guarantee that any of the winning Entries will be used by the Sponsor as the video of the Sponsor.
In the unlikely event of a tie in the Judges’ scoring, the potential winning Entries and their Winners’ ranking (if applicable) will be selected based on the highest “Representing the Technologies and/or Values of the Elastos Foundation” score. If there is still a tie, the potential winning Entries and their Winners’ ranking (if applicable) will be selected based on, in order, then the Overall Visual Appeal score, then the Creativity score, then the results of the Public Poll, until such tie is broken.
Participants whose Entries are chosen as the Finalists will be notified at the e-mail address provided to Sponsor with their Entries within twenty-four (24) hours after the selection of the Finalists.
