How The Two Winners Will Be Drawn:
The competition result will not be a game of chance but rather classified as a game of skill. As the winners will be chosen by Travello based on the strength of their video entries and profiles along with the votes that their videos receive. However, voting alone will not determine the winner, it will only play a part in determining overall popularity, as there will also be a final shortlist of entrants. This shortlist will be first interviewed by the Travello team (and possibly by a couple of our competition partners) via a live video call with each of them individually.
This judging panel will then pick the shortlist and conduct final round interviews and reference/background checks. If the two winners are two individual strangers then Travello will organise for final round interviews via live video calls between the shortlisted individual finalists to determine who they feel most comfortable travelling with.
Travello has the right to re-draw a winner if they deem the background checks are not favourable or to their liking. Final winners will be notified via email or SMS or Chat or any means previously used to conduct the video interview stage. This will take place within five (5) days following the winner selection.
Travello App shall have no liability for a winner’s failure to receive notices due to winners’ spam, junk e-mail or other security settings or for winners’ provision of incorrect or otherwise non-functioning contact information. If the selected winner cannot be contacted again, is ineligible, fails to claim the prize within 7 days from the time award notification was sent, or fails to timely return a completed and executed declaration and releases as required, prize may be forfeited and an alternate winner selected.
