Certain Submissions may be featured from time to time on the Web Site during the Contest Period and/or in Sponsor’s social media pages and channels, in Sponsor's sole discretion; being selected as a featured Submission is unrelated to the Judging Criteria and does not guarantee selection as a Finalist in the Contest.


By entering this Contest and uploading your Submission, you irrevocably grant to Sponsor and their agents the unconditional and perpetual right to post, display, publish, use, adapt, edit and/or modify such Submission in any way, in any and all media, for any purpose, without limitation, and without consideration to you.

A “Hollywood Professional” will be engaged by Sponsor to create a Doritos Super Bowl Commercial. The Hollywood Professional’s commercial will not be judged against the Submissions in this Contest, although it may be posted on the Web Site, in Sponsor’s sole discretion. The Hollywood Professional’s commercial will air during Super Bowl XLVI and will be counted in the USA Today Ad Meter ranking.


Five (5) finalist Submissions (each a “Finalist”) will be selected by a judging process in which a qualified panel of judges (“Judges”) will evaluate each eligible Submission based on the Judging Criteria set forth above. In the event of a tie for the fifth Finalist spot, the tie will be broken based on the highest score in the first Judging Criteria, continuing thereafter to each Judging Criteria, in order, as needed to break the tie. The five (5) Finalist Submissions will be posted for the public (ages 13 or older) to vote on their favorite at starting on January 4, 2012 at 12:00:00 pm (noon) CT and ending on January 29, 2012 at 11:59:59 pm CT (“Voting Period”). At the close of the Voting Period, the Submission that receives the most votes will be deemed the Grand Prize Winner (“Grand Prize Winner”), and the Grand Prize Winner’s selection will air during Super Bowl XLVI. In the unlikely event that public voting results in a tie, the tied Submissions will be re-judged by the Judges based on the Judging Criteria stated above to determine the Grand Prize Winner. Any use of robotic, macro, automatic, programmed or like voting methods will void all such votes. Any attempt by a Finalist and/or his/her family/friends to vote more than the number of times authorized herein using multiple names, email addresses, phone numbers and/or any other fraudulent mechanism, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion, shall give Sponsor the right to disqualify Finalist in its reasonable discretion. All Finalists are subject to verification, including without limitation, verification of eligibility, compliance with these Official Rules and completion of release forms (described below). If attempted notification is returned as undeliverable, if a Finalist cannot be verified, or if a Finalist is otherwise unable to accept prize, prize will be forfeited and may be awarded to an alternate Finalist provided sufficient time remains, in Sponsor’s discretion.


Entrants agree that the Sponsor has the sole right to decide all matters and disputes arising from this Contest and that all decisions of Sponsor are final and binding. Finalists, by acceptance of the Finalist Prize (defined below), agree to release, indemnify and hold harmless Sponsor and Contest Parties, as well as each of their respective parent and affiliated companies, and each of their employees, representatives, contractors, advertisers and sponsor from any and all liability, loss, damage, cost or claim related to any allegation regarding the acceptance or use of their prize, including but not limited to the airing of the commercial Submission.


If the actual, alleged or publicized conduct of any Entrant is illegal or, if any Entrant has been charged with or convicted of a crime, or in Sponsor’s sole discretion is otherwise grossly offensive or violates generally accepted standards of behavior (including, but not limited to, illicit drug use or public intoxication) or otherwise leads the Sponsor to believe or conclude that the public association with the Entrant subjects Sponsor to ridicule, contempt, controversy, embarrassment or scandal, Sponsor, in its sole discretion, may disqualify Entrant and their Submission will no longer be eligible for this Contest.
