Gift card availability may differ at the time of the award, given the pandemic impact on retailers; therefore, cash may be substituted if retail cards are unavailable. The final decision shall be solely determined by Ann's Place or the donating sponsor. No other prize substitution permitted except at Sponsor's discretion. The prize is non-transferable. Any and all prize related expenses, including without limitation any and all applicable federal, state, and/or local taxes shall be the sole responsibility of the winner. No substitution of prize or transfer/assignment of prize to others by winners is permitted. Acceptance of prize constitutes permission for Ann's Place to use winner's name, likeness, and entry for purposes of advertising without further compensation, unless prohibited by law. When a family or a group enters the contest, it is the responsibility of the leader or registrant to divide the winnings. Ann's Place will not be involved in that distribution or sharing of funds decision.

In the case of a tie vote in any category, the tied winners will split the total value of the tied places. For instance, if the 2nd Runner-up position in Trees is tied, we will total 2nd place ($500) and 3rd place ($250) prize monies (= $750) and split it between those two winners as $325 each. If 3rd place in Trees is tied, we will split the $250 with the multiple qualified winners, up to 5 at $50 each. Likewise, if the sculpture and/or photo winners of $250 are tied, we will divide the prize money among them, up to 5 winners each of $50 each. To select the top 5 from a larger number of ties, we will select the top five based on which entries had the largest number of individual gifts.

Special Award: Judges' Choice 2020 Holiday Tree/Holiday Item
Apart from the fundraising competition, a custom 2020 Best in Show ornament and a cash prize of $150 will be awarded to the Tree/Holiday Item entry that is selected as Best of Show based on design, theme, and decorating skill. Three of our top Festival sponsors will comprise the judges' panel. Selection of this tree will not eliminate it from the voting competition. The Winner of this Judges' Choice Award will be announced during the Grand Finale broadcast.
