Official Rules for 'What Would You Do?'s' 'How Would You Do It?' Contest


Entrants understand and accept that their entries may be the same as or similar to scenarios that have been produced, are currently in production and/or have been submitted by another entrant. To avoid the possibility of any future misunderstanding, Entrants understand and accept that ABC may produce scenarios based on ideas that might seem to others to be similar to those submitted. All entries are subject to the complete Terms of Use, remain the property of Sponsor and will not be returned or acknowledged. Entrants acknowledge and agree that any and all submissions may be used, in whole or in part, by ABC to produce future scenarios regardless of the status of that submission in relation to this contest and no prize of any kind will be awarded unless chosen as a finalist or winner. Entrant agrees that any submission made is not being made in confidence or trust and that no confidential or fiduciary relationship is intended or created between Entrant and Sponsor in any way, and that Entrant has no expectation of any compensation or consideration of any type (other than any prize that may be awarded if Entrant is selected as a Finalist or Winner).

Mass entries or entries generated by a script, macro or use of automated methods may be disqualified. If for any reason the contest is not capable of running as planned, for reasons including infection by computer virus, bugs, tampering, unauthorized intervention, fraud, technical failures, or other causes that corrupt or affect the administration, security, fairness, integrity or proper conduct of the contest, Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to disqualify any individual who tampers with the entry process, and to cancel, modify or suspend the contest. If canceled, Sponsor reserves the right at its discretion to determine the winner using all non-suspect eligible entries received up to the time of cancellation. Sponsor is not responsible for failed, partial, delayed or garbled computer transmissions, or for technical failures of any kind in connection with entries or the entry process, including but not limited to electronic malfunction or damage of any network, hardware or software. In the event of a dispute over an electronic entry, prize will be awarded to the authorized subscriber of the e-mail account, not the name on the entry form.

IV. HOW AND WHEN WINNERS WILL BE SELECTED AND NOTIFIED: Eligible entries will be judged on the basis of potential for on-air appeal, and overall readability of essay. Entries will be judged on a rolling basis. Up to fifty (50) Finalists may be selected for further consideration. Finalists may be contacted for a phone interview. Up to three (3) Winner(s) will be selected from the Finalists on the basis of compelling nature of scenario and feasibility of scenario. Any winning scenario may be altered, for content, feasibility of production or for any other reason deemed necessary, by and at the sole discretion of ABC.

Decisions of the judges are final as to all contest-related matters. Potential winners would be required to submit to a background check prior to being named a winner and receiving any prize. In the event any Winner is deemed ineligible, fails to comply with contest procedures, or is unwilling or unable to claim prize, then the prize will be awarded to the judges' next choice.
