7. How Winners will be Determined:


A. Contest Portion Winners.
1. People’s Choice
Winner.
All qualifying Submissions will be posted on the Website after
submission, and will be available for review by Food.com members from 9:00:00
a.m. ET on February 13, 2013 until 11:59:59 p.m. ET on March 26, 2013
("Reviewing Period"), and Food.com users will be able to review each Submission.
Food.com members may only review each Submission once during the Reviewing
Period (“Public Reviewing”). In order to “review” a Submission, a Food.com user
will rate the Submission on a scale from one to five stars, with five stars
being the best (a “Review”). At the conclusion of the Reviewing Period, a point
total for each Submission will be assigned based on the Reviews received. The
point totals will be determined from the Reviews as follows: For each five star
review, two points will be added to the score; for each four star review, one
point will be added to the score; for each three star review, zero points will
be added to the score. For each two star review, one point will be subtracted
from the score; and for each one star review, two points will be subtracted from
the score. The Submission with the highest score at the end of the Reviewing
Period will be the “People’s Choice Winner.” In the event there is a tie between
one or more Submissions, the Submission with the highest number of reviews will
be deemed the “People’s Choice Winner”.
Entrants are prohibited from
obtaining votes by any fraudulent or inappropriate means, including, without
limitation, offering prizes or other inducements to members of the public, as
determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. All results are unofficial until
verified by Sponsor.
VOTE COUNTS DISPLAYED ONLINE MAY NOT BE ACCURATE.
RESULTS ARE UNOFFICIAL UNTIL ALL ONLINE VOTES HAVE BEEN TALLIED AND VERIFIED BY
SPONSOR.

2. Grand Prize Winner.
After the Promotion Period, a panel of
judges selected by Sponsor will evaluate all Submissions and select one Grand
Prize Winner (the “Grand Prize Winner”) based on the following Judging Criteria:
(a) 25% based on use of the Simply Potatoes Ingredient in the preparation of the
recipe; (b) 25% based on creativity; and (c) 50% based on flavor and taste. The
odds of being selected depend on the number of Submissions received and the
performance of each Entrant. In the event of a tie, ties will be broken based on
the creativity criterion score and if a tie still remains, the tie will be
broken based on the flavor criterion score. Sponsor’s decisions with respect to
the winners and other matters pertaining to the Contest shall be final.

B. Sweepstakes Portion Winner.
The one (1) Sweepstakes
Prize Winner (the “Sweepstakes Prize Winner”) will be selected in a random
drawing from among all eligible entries into the Sweepstakes Portion on or
around April 3, 2013 by an independent judging organization, and will be
contacted by phone on or around the date of such selection. Judge’s decisions
with respect to winners and other matters pertaining to the Promotion shall be
final.
