Entrants must pay a One Dollar ($1) entry fee through this Website for each photo submitted.  Entrants may submit as many photos as they wish; however, there can be only one winner per username.  Additionally, unless an Entrant chooses otherwise at the time of entry or afterward, his or her entry will be automatically renewed for subsequent monthly contests, for an entry fee of One Dollar ($1) for each photo entered in the previous monthly contest and not removed from the database prior to the beginning of the next monthly contest.  Entrants may remove photos by logging in as a Registered User and following the instructions on the personal profile page.

Contest of Skill

 

Because this is a contest of skill, winning is dependent on the quality of entries received.

 

Judging Criteria

 

Contest winners are determined by ratings, on a 10-point scale, which visitors to the Website give to photos entered in each monthly contest.  No fee or registration is required to rate a photo.  Only one rating per Internet Protocol (IP) address will be permitted for each photo entered in each monthly contest.

The winner of each category for each monthly contest will be awarded the cash prize displayed for that category on the home page of this Website, WhatALooker.com, fixed as of the closing date and time for the contest.  The actual amount of the cash prize will vary based on the number of eligible entries received.  The home page display will update dynamically as the amount of the cash prize increases and will become fixed when the contest closes for that month.  In the event of a tie, Sponsor will determine in its sole discretion the winner and may, but is not required to, divide the cash prize evenly among multiple winners.  The odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received.  Once a winner is determined, the cash prize will be paid electronically, within five (5) business days, to Entrant's PayPal card account (or other payment account) set forth in Entrant's registration information at the time of payment.  Entrant is solely responsible for updating his or her registration information as needed on the Website.  The winner may be disqualified in the event the cash prize cannot be paid because of inaccurate registration information or any other reason.

 

Notification of Winner

 

The winner will be notified by e-mail and/or regular mail and must sign and return any documents, if requested, within the time period stipulated in the documents.  Failure to comply with this requirement may result in disqualification.  Any notification returned as undeliverable may result in disqualification.  In the event of a dispute about the identity of an individual, entries made online will be declared submitted by the Authorized Account Holder of the e-mail address submitted at time of entry.  "Authorized Account Holder" is defined as the natural person who is assigned to an e-mail address by an Internet access provider or online service provider or other organization that is responsible for assigning e‑mail addresses for the domain name associated with the submitted e-mail address.  The winner may be required to provide Sponsor with proof that the potential winner is the Authorized Account Holder of the e-mail address associated with the winner.
