In the event that a the potential Grand Prize winner cannot be contacted within the time frame noted above, he or she will be disqualified and an alternate potential Grand Prize winner may be selected at the Contest Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion on the basis of the entrant associated with the Submission that obtained the next highest Score (in which case the foregoing provisions of this section shall apply to such new potential Grand Prize winner).
