      By submitting and uploading your Idea Submission, you agree and understand that:

      1.  your Idea Submission must conform to the content Guidelines and Restrictions (as defined and described in Section 6 of these Official Rules);
      2.  Sponsor and/or the Participating Partner responsible for the Entry Site through which you submitted your Idea Submission (“Applicable Participating Partner”), in their sole discretion, may remove your Idea Submission and disqualify you from the Contest if they believe that your Idea Submission fails to conform to the Guidelines and Restrictions; and
      3. the Contest is subject to these Official Rules and you agree to comply with these Official Rules. Idea Submissions that do not comply with these Official Rules may be disqualified. An entrant may submit multiple Idea Submissions but may only submit a given Idea Submission for consideration in one (1) Category. Entrant may only use one (1) email account in connection with this Contest.

      All of your Idea Submissions must be submitted through the same Entry Site. Any developer who submits through more than one Entry Site will be disqualified from the Contest. All of his/her entries to any Entry Site will also be disqualified.

      All Idea Submissions are subject to verification by the Sponsor and the Applicable Participating Partner in accordance with these Official Rules. Any attempted form of entry other than as described herein is void. Sponsor and the Applicable Participating Partner, in accordance with these Official Rules, will determine in their sole discretion, what constitutes a valid entry.

      Sponsor, Participating Partners and Administrator are not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, invalid, un-intelligible, garbled, delayed or misdirected Idea Submissions; all of which will be void and not considered.

      See Section 15 of these Official Rules for important information related to the collection, storage and/or export of the personal data that you submit as part of this Contest.

      Round 1 Entry Deadline. Idea Submissions must be received by the Applicable Participating Partner between July 24, 2013 at 12:01 AM GMT and September 4, 2013 at 11:59 PM GMT in order to be considered for advancement to the Demo Submission (Round 2) period described in Section 5D of these Official Rules.

    2.  JUDGING OF IDEA SUBMISSIONS FOR POSSIBLE ADVANCEMENT TO ROUND 2. For each of the four (4) Entry Sites, a panel of qualified judges (determined by Sponsor and the Participating Partner of that Entry Site in their sole discretion) will select up to one hundred twenty-five (125) highest-scoring Idea Submissions (subject to the Platform allocations and Category minimums described below) from among all eligible Idea Submissions received at that Entry Site during Round 1 in all six (6) Categories (each an “Accepted Idea Submission,” and the entrant who submitted an Accepted Idea Submission is a selected “Finalist”) based on application of the following Idea Submission Judging Criteria:
       
      1.  How effectively does the Idea Submission demonstrate innovation and user experience? (up to 50 points);
      2.  How effectively does the Idea Submission demonstrate usage of key technical enabling vectors? (up to 40 points);
      3.  How viable is the Idea Submission for the Category in which it was submitted? (up to 30 points); and
      4.  How effectively does the Idea Submission describe the proposed application? (up to 20 points).

      As indicated above, for each of the four (4) Entry Sites, up to one hundred twenty-five (125) Accepted Idea Submissions will be selected subject to the following allocations and Category minimums:

      • From each Entry Site, fifty (50) of the Accepted Idea Submissions must be entries submitted in the AIO Platform Demo App Categories subject to the following: (a) at least fifteen (15) of these Accepted Idea Submissions must be entries in the Games Category; and (b) at least fifteen (15) of these Accepted Idea Submissions must be entries in the Entertainment Category; and

      • From each Entry Site, seventy-five (75) of the Accepted Idea Submissions must be entries submitted in the Tablet Platform Demo App Categories subject to the following: (a) at least ten (10) of these Accepted Idea Submissions must be entries in the Education Category; (b) at least ten (10) of these Accepted Idea Submissions must be entries in the Healthcare Category; (c) at least five (5) of these Accepted Idea Submissions must be entries in the Finance Category; and (d) at least five (5) of these Accepted Idea Submissions must be entries in the Retail Category.

      To be clear, there will not be an equal number of selected Finalists in each of the six (6) Categories because of the above Platform allocations and Category minimums.

      In addition, an entrant's Idea Submission must score at least seventy (70) points or greater for the Idea Submission to be eligible to be (and deemed) an Accepted Idea Submission. In the event of a tie (or multiple ties) that impact the selection of the one hundred twenty-five (125) Idea Submissions selected as Accepted Idea Submissions from an Entry Site, the tied entrant whose Idea Submission received the higher score for criteria (i) above, as determined by the qualified judges in their sole discretion, will be deemed a Finalist (and that entry will be an Accepted Idea Submission). In the event of a continued tie, the still-tied entrant whose Idea Submission is deemed to be the most marketable, as determined by the qualified judges in their sole discretion, will be deemed a Finalist (and that entry will be an Accepted Idea Submission). Sponsor and each Participating Partner reserve the right to select fewer than one hundred twenty-five (125) Idea Submissions as Accepted Idea Submissions from among entries received via that Participating Partner’s Entry Site if (i) an insufficient number of such Idea Submissions meet the scoring threshold described above; (ii) an insufficient number of eligible Idea Submissions are received; and/or (iii) in their sole discretion, if an insufficient number of such Idea Submissions meet the Guidelines and Restrictions (as defined and described) in Section 6 of these Official Rules). The judging of an Idea Submission will commence promptly after it is submitted.

      Since there are four (4) separate Entry Sites (where, pursuant to the above, there may be up to one hundred twenty-five (125) Accepted Idea Submissions selected per Entry Site), there may be up to five hundred (500) Idea Submissions (across all Entry Sites) that are selected as Accepted Idea Submissions to advance to Round 2.

      The odds of being selected to become a Finalist and move on to participate in Round 2 of the Contest will depend on a combination of: (i) the total number of eligible Idea Submissions received in each Category during the Idea Submission (Round 1) period; and (ii) the score the Idea Submission receives by the judges in accordance with the Judging Criteria outlined above.

      Each selected Finalist will receive an email notification from Administrator or the Applicable Participating Partner advising him/her that he/she has been selected as a Finalist. Please check your email and spam filters. Such notice will (i) indicate that the selected Finalist has the opportunity to participate in Round 2 of the Contest; and (ii) identify which Idea Submission(s) submitted by the Finalist are Accepted Idea Submissions eligible for Round 2.

    3. FULFILLMENT OF LOANER DEVICES TO FINALISTS. Depending upon which Category a Finalist’s Accepted Idea Submission falls within, Sponsor (or its designee) will send each Finalist (or its authorized representative) a loaner device (AIO, Tablet or both if entrant is a Finalist in both an AIO and Tablet Category, as applicable) (each a “Loaner Device”) for temporary use to assist with the creation of the Demo Submission (as defined in Section 5D of these Official Rules) subject to the following:
       
      1. The Loaner Device is subject to the terms and conditions set forth at (http://aic2013.intel.com/static/docs/developer_system_loan.pdf) ;
      2.  selected Finalist must agree to and accept the above online terms and conditions and provide his/her complete mailing address to which Loaner Device will be sent; if Finalist does not consent to the terms and conditions of the agreement, the Finalist may continue in the Contest and will merely not receive the Loaner Device. Use of the Loaner Device is not required to participate.
      3.  Instructions and return postage will be included in packaging with the Loaner Device; and
      4.  predicated on acceptance of the corresponding agreement, Loaner Devices will be sent out to selected Finalist promptly after entrant is selected as a Finalist, free of charge (including customs fees, etc.).

      In Sponsor’s sole discretion, any entrant who has entered on behalf of his or her employer and/or a group may be required to provide confirmation that he/she is authorized to enter on behalf of his/her employer and/or group in order to receive the Loaner Device and be considered for a prize in the subsequent parts of the Contest. Dependent on (and subject to) shipping times, customs requirements and other requirements, Loaner Devices will be distributed between September 11, 2013 and October 2, 2013, properly packed. Arrival of the Loaner Device to the Finalist is dependent on shipping times and customs. Sponsor, Participating Partners, and Administrator will not be responsible for any delayed (whether by customs or otherwise), late, lost, or misdirected Loaner Devices regardless of impact on Finalist’s ability to participate in the Contest unless Sponsor, Participating Partners, and/or Administrator act negligently or willfully.

      For Ukraine Residents Only (or otherwise applicable): Sponsor will send a Loaner Device to the Finalist, provided that the Finalist must conduct customs clearance of the Loaner Device and Sponsor will compensate the Finalist for the incurred customs clearance expenses upon submission by the Finalist of the relevant evidence in writing.

If requested, entrant will sign any agreement or other documentation (and/or obtain the signature from relevant third parties) that may be required for Sponsor or Lenovo to make use of the non-exclusive rights entrant is granting to use the Submission (and/or that may be requested to confirm such use). In granting Sponsor and Lenovo such license, entrant hereby represents and warrants that the Submission does not in any way infringe upon any third party’s intellectual properties (whether living or deceased). Intellectual property ownership and rights to the Submission remain with the entrant (either with the individual or the group or employer on whose behalf the individual entrant submitted the Submission) except as provided herein. To the extent permitted under applicable law, entrant consents to, and warrants that it has procured the consent from other creators of copyright in the Submission to, any acts or omissions by the Sponsor and Lenovo and each of their respective successors and assigns which would otherwise constitute an infringement of the creators' moral rights (including, in particular, the right to maintain the integrity of the Submission) and waives any and all such moral rights in favor of Sponsor and Lenovo. If requested, entrant must be able to provide such third party consent to Sponsor and Lenovo in a form acceptable to Sponsor. By submitting a Submission, each entrant accepts and acknowledges that Sponsor and Lenovo shall not be obligated to use the Submission and that Sponsor and Lenovo, in their sole discretion, shall have the right to refrain from using the Submission.

  8. 8. SELECTION OF WINNERS AND JUDGING CRITERIA FOR ROUND 2. Within thirty (30) days after the Demo Submission entry deadline, a panel of qualified judges (including judges with appropriate language skills) determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion will select the five (5) highest-scoring Demo Submissions in each of the six (6) Categories (where each person submitting such a Demo Submission is a “Demo Finalist”) from among all eligible Demo Submissions received from the four (4) Entry Sites during Round 2 (i.e., there will be a total of up to thirty (30) Demo Finalists) based on application of the following Demo Submission Judging Criteria:
     
    1. How effectively does the Demo Submission demonstrate innovation and a compelling user experience? (up to 50 points);
    2. How effectively does the Demo Submission demonstrate usage of key technical enabling vectors? (up to 40 points);
    3. How likely is it that end users will adopt the Demo App for its intended purpose and category? (up to 30 points); and
    4. Does the Demo App perform as expected with robust stability and functionality? (up to 20 points).

    The odds of being selected as a Demo Finalist will depend on a combination of: (i) the total number of eligible Demo Submissions received in each Category during the Demo Submission (Round 2) period; and (ii) the score the Demo Submission receives by the judges in accordance with the Judging Criteria outlined above.

    Each Demo Finalist will be required to provide a new video, subject to Section 6, that presents the features and innovative uses of his/her Demo App (“New Video”). The

    New Video cannot be the same video that you previously submitted in this Contest. While the Demo App itself does not need to be translated into English, the New Video must be presented in English via on-screen dialog, voice-over or subtitles. The New Video may feature the voice and/or physical appearance of the Demo Finalist and/or the voice and/or physical appearance of another person as long as such other person signs and returns a release waiver as required by Sponsor and in accordance with Section 6. A Demo Finalist may obtain assistance from another person to write the subtitle text if such Demo Finalist is not fluent in English.

    New Videos may be submitted via the Entry Site by uploading an unlisted link to the Administrator’s Servers. The unlisted link will access the video the Demo Finalist has uploaded to the designated video site (such as YouTube or YouKu) between December 5, 2013 at 12:01 AM GMT and December 12, 2013 at 11:59 PM GMT. Other specific details about the New Video (including additional format, timing and other requirements and limitations (if any)) will be provided to each Demo Finalist at the time of Demo Finalist selection. A panel of qualified judges will be selected by the Sponsor in its sole discretion to judge the New Videos.

    Between December 13, 2013 and no later than December 31, 2013, the New Video of each Demo Finalist will be judged and awarded points during this judging round based on application of the same criteria and point structure indicated above in (i) – (iv). Sponsor and judges reserve the right to refer to and consider the associated Demo Submission to clarify and/or better understand the New Video. The points awarded for your New Video will be added to your score for the corresponding Demo Submission, with the combined score constituting your “Total Score.”

    In order to be considered for the Overall Grand Prize, the AIO Platform Grand Prize or the Tablet Platform Grand Prize, the Demo Finalist’s Total Score must be at least two hundred-forty (240) points or greater.

    • There will be up to one (1) Overall Grand Prize awarded to the Demo Finalist in any of the six (6) Categories with the highest Total Score that meets the above required threshold score.
    • There will be up to one (1) AIO Platform Grand Prize awarded to the Demo Finalist in any of the two (2) AIO Categories with the highest Total Score that meets the above required threshold score.

Winners of the Overall Grand Prize, the AIO Platform Grand Prize and the Tablet Platform Grand Prize are not eligible to win a Category Prize (i.e., none of their New Videos will be considered for a Category Prize).

    The odds of being selected as a prize winner will depend on a combination of: (i) the total number of eligible New Videos submitted by each Demo Finalist in each Category during the Demo Submission (Round 2) period; and (ii) the score the New Video receives by the judges in accordance with the Judging Criteria outlined above.

    In the event one (1) or more Demo Finalists tie with the same highest Total Score for any of the prizes/Categories listed above, the winner for that prize/category will be selected by Sponsor based on which of the tied entries the judges believe has the most potential marketability. Sponsor reserves the right to select fewer than the potential nine (9) winners, if, in its sole discretion, an insufficient number of New Video/Demo Submissions meet the scoring criteria threshold described above or if Sponsor does not receive a sufficient number of eligible New Videos.
