  • Public Voting: The entrants who submitted the twenty five (25) Submissions that achieve the highest score in the Internal Judging phase (the “Semi-Finalists“) will move on to the Public Voting round.

In the event of a tie, the tie will be broken on the basis of the tied entrants’ scores in the “extent to which the entrant’s efforts reflect a “Rebel Spirit'” category. There is a limit of one vote per person and per Internet Protocol address per day.
  • Final Judging: The five Semi-Finalists whose Submissions receive the greatest number of votes during the Public Voting Period (the “Finalists“) will move on to the Final Judging Round.
