No entries into the Contest will be accepted before or after those dates unless Sponsor elects in its sole discretion to modify the Contest period. All votes will be tallied at 11:59 pm PST. In case of a tie PoliRock.com will determine the winners for both the "Band" contest and the "User" contest. If more than 50% of the votes do not originate from a diverse set of Internet Protocol addresses (to be determined by PoliRock.com), that band is ineligible to win the cash prizes.

The bands that receive the most user votes (top three) will be the winners. The users that cast the most votes (top three) will be the winners. Winner(s) will be notified by phone or e-mail. If a prize notification is returned as undeliverable or the winner(s) otherwise cannot be readily contacted, the prize will be forfeited and will be awarded to the runner-up if feasible, and if not feasible to another eligible contestant as determined and selected by Sponsor in its sole discretion. As a condition to receiving the prize(s), the winner(s) will be required to sign and return to Sponsor within 3 days an affidavit of eligibility, liability release, and publicity release (except where prohibited), along with such other documentation as Sponsor (PoliRock.com) may require in its sole discretion. If the winner(s) does not return such documentation within the required timeframe, Sponsor may select another winner. All songs and albums of registered bands must be original works and not cover songs. In plain English: If you don't own the rights to the song(s) listed on your profile or didn't write it/them (you must be able to verify this if contested) then your band is ineligible to win.
