WKRN will not accept screen shots as proof of voting or “liking” a Video. WKRN is not responsible for “likes” that are lost, misdirected, mutilated, garbled, distorted, truncated, incomplete, illegible, or containing errors or if for any reason they are not completed or received prior to the stated deadline, and all such “likes” are subject to disqualification. WKRN reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any “like” at any time that in its opinion does not comply with these Official Rules.
- At the conclusion of each Weekly Contest Period, WKRN will determine the number of “likes” received by each Video. Subject to verification of eligibility, the Band whose Video receives the most “likes” during the relevant Weekly Contest Period will be declared a Finalist. In the event of a tie for any Finalist, the Public Voting will be extended by one or more thirty (30) minute periods until the tie is broken. WKRN reserves the right to declare fewer than the stated number of Finalists if it does not receive a sufficient number of eligible and properly submitted entries.

- All Public Voting is subject to the following Voting Restrictions: The use of robotic, repetitive, automatic, programmed, script, macro, or any other automated means or similar methods or agents or multiple Instagram accounts or log-ins to “like” a Video is prohibited and may result in the disqualification of all “likes” received through that method and/or from that person.
- Representatives, Bands and other participants are prohibited from obtaining or soliciting “likes” by offering (or encouraging others to offer) prizes or other inducements to members of the public, vote farming, vote purchasing, vote exchanging or swapping, or by engaging in any other activity that artificially inflates the number of “likes” received as determined by WKRN in its sole discretion. Without limiting the foregoing, WKRN reserves the right to determine in its sole and absolute discretion whether any “likes” are invalid and to disqualify any suspect or irregular “likes” and/or “likes” generated by a robotic, programmed, script, macro, other automated means or source or by the use of multiple e-mail addresses, Instagram accounts, or log-ins.
- WKRN will not accept screen shots as proof of “likes.” WKRN is not responsible for “likes” that are lost, misdirected, mutilated, garbled, distorted, truncated, incomplete, illegible, or containing errors or if for any reason they are not completed or received prior to the stated deadline, and all such “likes” are subject to disqualification. WKRN reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any “like” at any time that in its opinion does not comply with these Official Rules.
