PROCEDURE FOR AWARDING PRIZES
On 6/26/2012, the CBC Community team will pick five photos from all entries received. The team will make its selections considering the following criteria:
1) Photos must clearly exhibit the applicable theme (i.e. Road trips, Fall harvest, May flowers,etc.)
2) The meaning of the photo is reasonably apparent to the audience (i.e. it portrays a clear subject with effect/emotion).
3) Technical quality (i.e. clear and clean composition).
The selected five photos will be published on www.cbc.ca/community. CBC.ca users will vote for their favourite photo. The photo with the most votes will be selected as the winner. The selected winner will be contacted by telephone or email during the week following the vote and should acknowledge his/her prize as instructed by CBC by no later than three (3) days following CBC's attempt at contacting the selected winner. If the prize is not claimed within this period, a new winner will be selected. Once a winner is finally selected and confirmed, it will be announced on the cbc.ca/community website. CBC will mail the prize to the winner's address at no cost to the winner.
