5. WINNER SELECTION
On or about June 1, 2016 the Sponsor, administrator or an independent judging agency will select the winning entries in a random drawing of all valid entries (Picks) cast for each CMA Artist. Each CMA Artist will have its own drawing from all valid Picks allocated to such CMA Artist by Entrants. Each selected Entrant will be contacted using the email address or telephone number provided with the entry (as determined in Sponsor's discretion) or may go the Site and login and see if they won and may be awarded the prize (subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with the terms of these Official Rules.) Potential winners will be notified approximately two (2) days after the applicable drawing. Failure to respond to the initial verification contact within five (5) days of notification or return of e-mail notification as undeliverable may, in Sponsor's sole discretion, result in disqualification. Odds of winning a prize depend on the number of eligible entries received for the drawing for that particular CMA Artist. Limit of one prize per person per CMA Artist for the Draw.
