The rules and regulations of Viral Republic are designed to ensure that no contestant may gain an unfair advantage over other contestants based on the number of followers they have on Facebook, Instagram or any other Social Media site.
In order to maintain these important principles of merit, impartiality, inclusion and openness, all content presented to Viral Republic will be previewed and approved by a panel of three (3) Viral Republic judges before being officially entered in any contest.

VIII. ELIMINATION OF CONTENT, REMOVAL OF CONTENT FROM A CONTEST
You may choose to remove or withdraw your content from any contest at any time. However, after loading an image or video, it may not be replaced by other content, even if the Contestant is not satisfied with the image or video. Any d image will lose the points won until the moment it was d/withdrawn by the Contestant; Any new content substituted will be considered a new entry in the contest and therefore restart the counter at 0 points.
IX. WINNING PARTICIPATIONS, FREQUENCY OF THE COMPETITION AND DURATION
Each Viral Republic contest will have a unique theme and will vary in duration, from two (2) weeks up to three (3) months, depending on the nature and theme of the contest. There is no limit to the number of concurrent contests / topics that Viral Republic may initiate. In order to increase their chances of ranking among the 10 best winners in any contest, the contestants may choose to enter several photos and/or videos for each individual contest (limit of 50 photos and 6 videos). To participate, Contestants must upload their photos and/or videos at any time after midnight on the first day of the contest period and before 11:59 PM on the last day of the contest. Contestants may only win one prize per Viral Republic contest. If several or all entries (up to 50 and 6 videos) of a contestant's uploaded content qualify for a position among the 20 best in a contest, only the photo or video that has reached the highest number of points will be qualified to win a prize. Entries will be awarded prizes based on the total number of points earned for each individual entry. Points earned for separate entries cannot be combined to increase the final score of an individual entry. The odds of winning a prize will be influenced by a) the number of contestants in each individual contest, b) the strength in the number of followers of social networks of a contestant, c) the number of points that a voter will award for each video or photo (Voters may only vote once for the duration of the contest).
Registered Viral Republic participants can assign points in as many simultaneous contests as they wish, and for a specific Contestant a maximum of one time for the duration of a contest, for each individual contestant they support. Contestants may attribute votes to their own content in accordance with the same rules and limitations as other Participants: one (1) time for a maximum of ten (10) points.
For each contest, up to ten (10) Contestants (the "Top 10") will have the opportunity to qualify for a prize based on their relative total number of points. In addition, a consolation prize chosen by Viral Republic will be awarded to the following twenty (20) sequential results, as well as "head-start" bonus points. Contestants may apply to any future Viral Republic contest of their choice. The highest score in the Top 10 winning position will win the most valued prize, and the prizes for the winning positions from 2 to 10 will have decreasing values. Viral Republic reserves the right to modify the format of the contests before the start of any contest, including the number of winning slots in each contest, and/or the duration of each contest. The number of winning positions, the duration of the contest and the chosen number will be published in Viral Republic before the start of each contest; Specific prizes are subject to change based on availability and may be substituted for prizes of equal value.
X. PREVIOUSLY SUBMITTED CONTENT
The content (Video or Photo) that won in a previous contest cannot be re-submitted for a subsequent contest. Previously uploaded content that did not win a prize may be resubmitted in subsequent contests.
XI. EXTRA TIME
In some rare, statistically possible cases, several Contestants may reach an identical score at the end of a contest. In such cases, the contest will automatically enter overtime for all Contestants, and participants may award more points for an additional 24 hours until a winner is identified with a unique score. The level of participation, enthusiasm and commitment of all participants will determine the probability of prevailing in overtime and/or maintaining their respective scoring positions. In the extremely unlikely event that once again identical scores are reached at the end of the 24-hour period, the winner will be determined arbitrarily by the timestamp at the time the identical final score was obtained. This means that the first person who reaches the identical qualification at the end of the overtime period based on the timestamp of the last vote, will arbitrarily become the qualified winner for that specific position among the top 10 winners. Achieving the identical score based on the timestamp of the last vote will win the prize of the next logical position.
XII. ILLEGAL BEHAVIOR, DANGEROUS BEHAVIOR, INAPPROPRIATE CONTENT, LIABILITY
The contestants must have good judgment when choosing the content they enter in Viral Republic contests. Viral Republic will carefully monitor the legality and adequacy of any and all content uploaded to the Viral Republic platform.

Individual contestants will receive up to two warnings. Upon the occurrence of the third occurrence of a warning to an individual Contestant, the user's account and any associated email address and/or phone number will be immediately canceled and black-listed, and prevented from participating in future contests of the Viral Republic. In the event that a forbidden contestant reopens a fraudulent account under a different identity or uses a different email address, any associated winning participation will automatically be considered invalid and the prize will be awarded to the Contestant with the following winning score. Viral Republic reserves the right to immediately cancel user accounts and, without prior notice, notify the authorities in case any content that is considered illegal is loaded on the Viral Republic platform.
