JUDGING (there will be two (2) rounds of judging, as follows):

Round 1 Judging: Following the conclusion of the Contest Period, all eligible entries received, regardless of Dad-egory, will be judged by a panel of judges to determine the Golden Donut Award winning entry based on the following criteria: (i) ability of Nominee to demonstrate their qualifications for the Dad-egory selected at the time of entry (40%); (ii) relatability and timeliness (30%); and (iii) authenticity (30%). The Nominee of the one (1) entry with the highest score will be deemed the potential Golden Donut Award winner, subject to verification and compliance with these Official Rules. In the event of any tie, an additional "tie-breaking" judge selected by the Sponsor will determine the potential winning entry from among those tied based on the criteria set forth herein.

WINNER NOTIFICATION/REQUIREMENTS FOR GOLDEN DONUT AWARD: The potential winners (both the applicable Nominator and Nominee) will be notified by email, phone and/or mail and will be required to complete an Affidavit of Eligibility, Liability and Publicity Release (unless prohibited by law), and execute any other documents required by Sponsor. The Nominee will also be asked to provide a headshot photo of themselves along with a video acceptance speech.

Video must be in an acceptable format, including, but not limited to .mp4, .wmv, or .mov format, no larger than 300mb in size and cannot exceed ninety (90) seconds in duration. Return of notification as undeliverable, failure to sign and return requested documentation within the specified time period, the inability of Sponsor to contact the Nominator or Nominee within three (3) days of notification or noncompliance with these Official Rules by the potential winner will result in disqualification and, at Sponsor's sole discretion, a runner-up (the next highest scoring entry from Round 1 judging) may be selected as the winner. Note: The Nominator and Nominee must both respond and comply with the applicable requirements outlined above prior to being deemed a confirmed winner. Failure of the Nominator or Nominee of the selected entry to comply with the requirements above may result in the applicable entry being disqualified and Sponsor will have no further obligation to the applicable Nominator and Nominee. Sponsor reserves the right to conduct background checks on potential winners (both the applicable Nominator and Nominee) after extending an initial winner notification without additional notice or further consent and Nominator and Nominee agree to such background checks. Nominator and Nominee understands that Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify selected entry based on the results of the background checks. If either potential winning Nominator or Nominee is a minor, or at least eighteen (18) but still considered a minor in his/her state of residence, the applicable prize will be awarded in the name of his/her parent or legal guardian who will be required to comply with all requirements imposed on winners set forth herein.
