Entrants will be able to log in with manual entry and Xbox Live Gamertag.
GRAND PRIZE DRAW: By submitting a video, you receive one (1) entry into the overall grand prize draw to win an Xbox One S console and Xbox Live credit (the “Grand Prize Draw”). The number of entries you can earn for the Grand Prize Draw is capped at one per participant. One (1) potential winner of the Xbox One S will be selected in one random drawing held on or about January 13, 2017. Drawing will be conducted by software that produces verifiably random results from all eligible entries received. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received. All entries must be received by January 12, 2016 at 22:00 GMT to be eligible.
WEEKLY PRIZE COMPETITION: In addition to the “Grand Prize Draw”, a participant may be eligible for the weekly prize competition to win a Game Drive for Xbox and Xbox Live credit (“Weekly Prize Competition”). To earn an entry into a Weekly Prize Competition, a participant’s submitted video must receive 60 public votes or more (“Legendary Status”) using the voting buttons on the “Gaming Heroes” website hosted on play.seagate.com. The video must then rank in the top 10 highest voted videos in a given week (60th vote received between 00:00 Monday- 23:59 Sunday). The 10 highest ranked videos from each week will be submitted to a judging panel (pre-arranged by the Sponsor) (judging panel bios detailed on the Microsite) which will determine the weekly winner by each judge casting an individual vote for their preferred video. If two or more videos equally receive the highest number of judges’ votes, the winning video will be decided by which video in contention has the highest number of public votes. If an entrant’s video achieves Legendary Status, the entrant will be eligible for the Weekly Prize Competition for the week in which it is submitted and for all further Weekly Prize Competitions during the Promotion Period.
If no video reaches “Legendary Status” (as defined above) or only a limited number of the quota of 10 reach “Legendary Status”, then the top 10 public voted videos will be submitted to the judging panel for the Weekly Prize Competition by default.
The microsite will be shared on the Seagate Facebook Pages and Seagate Twitter Feed in the Eligible Territories.
