During the Contest Period, the Sponsor, its agents and/or the Judges will be evaluating each entry to ensure that it does not violate the Photograph Requirements. While the Sponsor, its agents and/or the Judges will make every effort to review the submitted Photographs to ensure that they meet the Photograph Requirements; they may not be able to view all Photographs during the Contest Period.
