Potential winners will be selected on or about September 20, 2013, from all eligible and qualified entries. Twenty-five (25) potential semi-finalists will be selected and requested to submit the additional file required by these Official Rules. The judges will also select and rank 10 alternate semifinalists. If the additional file is not provided within five days of the request for the additional file, the Entrant will not be deemed a semi-finalist and will be replaced by an alternate selection next in line as determined by the judges' prior ranking of alternates. All of the semi-finalists and the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners will be judged on the basis of (i) Originality of the Concept (33 1/3%) (ii) Overall Creative Impact of the Work (33 1/3%) and (iii) Technical Artistic Skill (33 1/3%). The twenty-five (25) semi-finalists will be posted in advance of final judging. Only one entry per Entrant may be chosen as a semi-finalist entry. All semi-finalists will be chosen by a panel of deviantART staff members. The prize winning Works will be selected by Casey Hurbis, Head of FIAT Communications. The judges' decisions are final on all matters relating to the Contest. In the event of a tie in any portion of the judging process, the judges themselves will resolve the tie to the appropriate number of semi-finalists or ranked winners as applicable. In the event Mr. Hurbis becomes unavailable, a substitute Judge of similar stature will be used.
