Then, follow the directions to upload one (1) photo that displays your ultimate tailgate set-up, (herein, your "Submission"). The Submission must include a charcoal grill or charcoal and may only include individuals under the age of 18 if submitted by their parent or legal guardian.

Entries from each Weekly Submission Period will not be considered in the Contest for any subsequent Weekly Submission Period.
By uploading your Submission, you agree that it conforms to the Guidelines and Content Restrictions as defined below (collectively, the “Guidelines and Restrictions”) and that Sponsor, in its sole discretion, may remove your Submission and disqualify you from the Promotion if it believes that your Submission fails to conform to the Guidelines and Restrictions or is otherwise not in compliance with these Official Rules. .
Limit: Each entrant may upload one (1) Submission per Weekly Submission Period. Entrants may not submit the same Submission multiple times. Multiple entrants are not permitted to share the same email address. Any attempt by any entrant to upload more than the stated number of Submissions by using multiple/different email addresses, identities, registrations and logins, or any other methods will void that entrant’s Submissions and that entrant may be disqualified. Submissions generated by script, macro or other automated means are void.
Uploading a Submission constitutes entrant’s consent to give Sponsor a royalty-free, irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive license to use, reproduce, modify, publish, create derivative works from, and display such Submission in whole or in part, on a worldwide basis, and to incorporate it into other works, in any form, media or technology now known or later developed, including for promotional or marketing purposes. Released Parties (as defined in Section 11, below) are not responsible for lost, late, stolen, damaged, incomplete, invalid, un-intelligible, garbled, delayed or misdirected Submissions, which will be disqualified.
In the event of a dispute as to the ownership of any Submission, the authorized account holder of the email address used to register for the account will be deemed to be the entrant. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address. Potential winners may be required to show proof of being authorized account holders.
Finalist Determination: After the conclusion of all Weekly Submission Periods, a panel of qualified judges determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion will select the eight (8) entrants (two (2) Submissions per each Weekly Submission Period from among all eligible Submissions) with the highest-scoring Submissions (the "Finalists"), based on the following criteria (“Judging Criteria”):
In the event of a tie, the entrant whose Submission received the highest score for the Creativity/Originality of Submission, as determined by the qualified judges, will be deemed the winner of the tie and the applicable Finalist. Sponsor reserves the right to select fewer than eight (8) Finalists, if, in its sole discretion, it does not receive a sufficient number of eligible and qualified Submissions.
