IV. DETERMINATION OF WINNERS

a. From all the entries submitted, a shortlist of ten (10) recipes will be selected by five (5) judges from the Unilever RFM Ice Cream, Inc. Brand team and three (3) judges from the creative agency, with the supervision of an authorized FDA representative, based on the following criteria. A score for each criterion will be given from 1-10, with the following weights applied:

  • Ease of Making – 40%
    Recipe is clear, easy to follow, and uses readily sourced ingredients
  • Presentation – 30%
    Visual appeal of dessert creation

b. The scores per judge will be collated in a Google Sheet private to the panel and the FDA representative. Upon ranking the shortlisted entries with these initial scores (assuming 0 first for the remaining 30% audience vote), the Top Ten (10) will be determined.

  • In addition to the Top Ten (10) winners, the fallback entries will be generated from all the entries submitted and ranked accordingly based on the criteria provided above. The assignment of unclaimed prizes will be based on the scores gathered by said set of fallback entries.
  • In case a winner does not provide the necessary confirmation after forty-eight (48) hours, they will be notified that their Top Ten (10) slot has been forfeited and will be awarded to another shortlisted fallback winner. This is further detailed in Section VI.
  • In the event of ties, the Brand team and creative agency will further evaluate the affected entries until such time that the parity is broken.

c. The final Top Ten (10) entries will then be posted on Facebook as an album. The remaining 30% in the criteria will then be determined by audience votation in the form of number of reactions (as defined here) per entry in the Facebook album post.

  • Unilever RFM Ice Cream, Inc. reserves the right to investigate suspicious votation activity (e.g., mass votes via “troll” or bot accounts, multiple fake accounts) and likewise reserves the right to disregard such votes in the final count should any investigation confirm such.

d. The votation period will last at least five (5) to a maximum of seven (7) calendar days starting on the date of posting. As stated in Section II, the duration will depend on the lead time for reviewing the mass entries. The final votation period will be indicated in the Top 10 album post, as well as a note that audience vote will comprise 30% of the final score.

  • A score will be assigned from 1-10, with the entry having the most reactions receiving a score of 10 out of 10, the second-ranked receiving 9, and so on. This score from 1-10 will have the 30% audience vote weight applied and the result will be the last component for the total score.
  • For more information, see APPENDIX G for a sample tally in judges’ scoresheets.

e. Once the remaining 30% in the criteria is factored in the scores per entry, the ranking of the Top Ten (10) winners shall be determined for prize assignment.

  • The winners shall be notified of their rank and accompanying prize within forty-eight (48) hours after the decision has been made as detailed in Section VI.
  • The ranking of the top ten (10) entries will be announced via another Facebook post upon confirmation with the winners.

f. Virtual meetings with an FDA representative will be scheduled to practice proper social distancing protocols. An FDA Representative shall be invited to witness via virtual meetings:
