JUDGING & FINALIST DETERMINATION: All eligible Entries received during the Contest Entry Period will be judged by a panel of judges appointed by the Sponsor, who shall use the criteria set forth below:
- How well Design aligns with J.Jill Compassion Fund values (50%)
- How inspirational Design is (25%)
- Creativity (25%)
The fifty (50) Entries that receive the highest total scores based on the judging criteria (each, a “Top 50 Entry”) will each be judged by a separate panel of judges appointed by the Sponsor using the judging criteria set forth above. The Top 50 Entries that receive the ten (10) highest total scores based on the judging criteria in the second round of judging will be deemed a potential finalist (each, a “Finalist”). In the unlikely event of a tie, the tied Entry with the highest score in Criterion A, How well Design aligns with J.Jill Compassion Fund values, will be deemed the potential Finalist. If additional tie breakers are needed, the tie-breaking mechanism above will be used; however, instead of the highest score in Criterion A determining the potential winner from among the tied entries, the highest scores in each of Criteria B through C, in sequence (to the extent needed) will determine the potential Finalist. In the event additional tiebreakers are needed, all tied Entries will be judged by a separate panel of judges using the judging criteria above.
CONTEST FINALIST CONFIRMATION PERIOD & FINALIST ACCEPTANCE: Potential Finalists will be contacted by the Administrator by email or phone on/around February 1, 2020, and will be required to sign and return an Affidavit of Eligibility & Publicity/Liability Release (the “Releases”) within two (2) days of notification to be declared a verified Finalist and continue on to the Public Voting Period. Noncompliance will result in disqualification and the Top 50 Entry with the next highest judging score will be deemed a potential Finalist. Fewer than ten (10) Finalists may continue on to the Pubic Voting Period without liability to the Sponsor or its designees of any kind. If a potential Finalist is otherwise eligible under these Official Rules, but is nevertheless deemed a minor in his or her state of primary residence, the potential Finalist’s parent or legal guardian will be required to execute and return the Releases on minor’s behalf.
PUBLIC VOTING PERIOD: Starting at 12:00:01 AM on February 10, 2020, the ten (10) Finalists will be posted to the Contest Gallery on the Promotion Website for public voting.

Noncompliance will result in disqualification and an alternate winner may be determined as outlined above. The prize package will be awarded within approximately 45 days after the winner is verified.
If any notification or prize is returned as undeliverable, or if the selected prize winner fails to claim the prize or if selected winner cannot accept or receive the prize for any reason, or he/she is not in compliance with these Official Rules, the prize will be forfeited and an alternate winner will be selected. Only two (2) alternate winners may be determined through this process, after which any remaining prizes may remain un-awarded.

DISPUTES: The parties hereto each agree to finally settle all disputes only through arbitration; provided, however, the Released Parties shall be entitled to seek injunctive or equitable relief in the state and federal courts in Norfolk County, Massachusetts and any other court with jurisdiction over the parties. In arbitration, there is no judge or jury and review is limited. The arbitrator’s decision and award is final and binding, with limited exceptions, and judgment on the award may be entered in any court with jurisdiction. The parties agree that, except as set forth above, any claim, suit, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Contest shall be resolved solely by binding arbitration before a sole arbitrator under the streamlined Arbitration Rules Procedures of JAMS Inc. (“JAMS”) or any successor to JAMS. In the event JAMS is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within fourteen (14) days of the filing of a “Demand for Arbitration”, then either party can elect to have the arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) or any other mutually agreeable arbitration administration service. If an in-person hearing is required, then it will take place in Norfolk County, Massachusetts. The federal or state law that applies to these Official Rules will also apply during the arbitration. Disputes will be arbitrated only on an individual basis and will not be consolidated with any other proceedings that involve any claims or controversy of another party, including any class actions; provided, however, if for any reason any court or arbitrator holds that this restriction is unconscionable or unenforceable, then the agreement to arbitrate doesn’t apply and the dispute must be brought in a court of competent jurisdiction in Norfolk County, Massachusetts. Sponsor agrees to pay the administrative and arbitrator’s fees in order to conduct the arbitration (but specifically excluding any travel or other costs of individual to attend the arbitration hearing). Either party may, notwithstanding this provision, bring qualifying claims in small claims court.
