WINNER DETERMINATION: All Entries successfully submitted during the applicable Contest Period will be judged by a panel of one or more qualified judges determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion (the “Judging Panel”).

In the event of a tie, the Entry that received the highest score for ability to capture the Covet Fashion voice, as determined by the Judging Panel in its sole discretion, will be deemed the potential winner. Sponsor reserves the right not to designate a potential winner for any Contest if, in its sole discretion, it does not receive a sufficiently qualified and eligible Entry. The odds of winning depend upon the number of eligible Entries received and relative skill of Entrants. All decisions of the Judging Panel in all matters relating to the Contest are final and binding.

Maximum one (1) prize per person per Contest, per in-Game account, per email address, per household.
