In the event of a tie, the Contest Entry(ies) with the highest score in the Creativity/Originality criterion will be determined as Contest Winners. Sponsor reserves the right to award fewer than twelve (12) Contest winners if, in its sole discretion, it does not receive a sufficient number of eligible Contest Entries throughout the Promotion Period.
