The Category First Place Winners will be selected by the BOXROX team (the “Judging Panel”). The Category Winners will be selected by the Judging Panel based on the following criteria (the “Judging Criteria”): (a) Theme (10%): Authenticity and Applicability to Category Theme, (b) The Photography Element (90%): creativity, quality, composition, and visual storytelling of the photo. Application of the Judging Criteria to the Submissions and/or Entrants shall be at the Judging Panel’s reasonable discretion and, as to matters of subjectivity, the Judging Panel’s sole discretion. The decisions of the Judging Panel are final and binding in all matters relating to the Contest and selection of the eventual Category Winners.
The Overall Winner will be selected by the community through the BOXROX Facebook page.

The community is then invited to “like” the original photo they consider the best. The photo with the most “likes” by April 1st, 2022, 09:59:59 am, CET, will be selected as the Overall Winner. Should the Category Winner selected by the Judging Panel also be the Overall Winner, the Judging Panel will decide on a runner up for the category in question and award that Entrant with the prizes for the Category Winner.
