Odds.  Odds of winning depend upon the number of eligible entries received during the Entry Period and the skill of the entrants in adhering to the Judging criteria.    This contest is intended to be advertised as follows: (1) on the radio on various music, talk, entertainment and sports channels on both Sirius and XM Radio, (2) on the Internet on various music, talk, entertainment and sports channel pages at www.siriusxm.com, (3) on Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites, (4) by unsponsored and sponsored members of the public in social media and online communities, and possibly (5) via the SiriusXM Highlights e-newsletter that is delivered to a minimum of approximately 15.5 million email addresses.


Judging Criteria.  All Entries will be judged by a panel of judges, made up of SiriusXM music programming experts, possible celebrity guest judge(s) (TBD), and/or other related representatives and staff (the “Judges”), who will select potential Prize winners from among all eligible Entries received during the Entry Period, using the following criteria:

First Tier: The number of “Likes” — (including all forms such as “like”/”love”/”haha”/”wow”/”angry”) — a Photo receives by the end of the Entry Period.  Each “Like” vote on a Photo will count for one (1) point.  The top five (5) Photos only, based on points scored, will go on to be judged in the Second Tier of judging.

Second Tier: 25% based upon originality and creativity of the Photo, including but not limited to costuming and Photo editing (on a 25-point scale), 25% based upon the originality of the dog’s name (on a 25-point scale), and 50% based on the cuteness of the dog (on a 50-point scale).  On the second tier of judging, a tie will be broken based upon the highest score in the cuteness category.  If a further tie exists, such tie will be broken by a re-judging of the tied entries based on the score in the originality/creativity category.

Scoring will be done in the sole discretion of the Judges whose decisions are final and binding.  The five (5) highest scoring Photos, based on First Tier point counts will be the “Finalists.” The Finalists’ Photos will be judged by members of the Morning Mash-Up and/or a celebrity guest judge who will choose the potential Grand Prize Winner.  Potential Grand Prize winner will be notified on or around August 10, 2017 via Facebook Messenger.  All entrants must be verified as to eligibility before winner status is confirmed.  (See Conditions of Entry / Eligibility To Win above.)  Pronouncement of potential Prize winner status will be MADE as long as there are a sufficient number of eligible Entries TO BE JUDGED.

Required Agreements Of Winners.  Except where prohibited, all winners consent to allow Sponsor, and its promotional agents to use their name, likeness, photo (if any), Photo and/or biographical data for advertising and promotional purposes, without additional compensation, in perpetuity, in all media, now known or hereafter developed, in connection with this promotion.
