After the conclusion of the Contest Entry Period, a judge consisting of a Sponsor personnel (“Judge”) will determine the two Entrants who obtained the highest score during their entries.

In the event of a tie, Sponsor, at its sole discretion, will declare one of those persons to be the person who will be declared to have the top score and the other person will be declared to be second.
