5. Notification of Winners: Judging will take place on or about 7/1/12. Each potential prize winner will be notified by e-mail to the email address associated with his or her AVS Forum account profile from which the Submission was made on or about 7/9/12. Within ten (10) days of the date of the notification email, each potential prize winner may be required to execute an affidavit of eligibility and general release of liability and consent (in writing, if requested).

In the event of a dispute regarding who submitted a Submission, the Submission will be deemed submitted by the authorized account holder of the e-mail address associated with the AVS Forum’s account profile from which the Submission was made. "Authorized account holder" is defined as the natural person who is assigned to an e-mail address by an Internet access provider, online service provider, or other organization (e.g., business, educational institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the submitted e-mail address.

6. General Rules: By entering the Promotion, you agree to be bound by these Official Rules.
