HOP Raffle & Design A Jest Contest Rules
The Raffle and Design A Jest Contest are open to any Royal Watch member. You may enter as
many times as you wish. Raffle entries may be combined on one
form. Please use a separate form for each Design Contest
entry, to allow for impartial judging.
If you are
only entering the Raffle and the entry form is not available,
please type/print the following information on a piece of
paper: Name, Address, Phone, E-mail, Royal Watch Membership
Number, number of Raffle tickets requested, and total amount
If you are
also entering the Design A Jest Contest, the following
additional items are required:
Certification, with original signature, is required for each entry.
Contest entries submitted without the Certification will
not be considered. They will be treated as a Raffle entry
only. The required Certification statement is:
certify that the Design A Jest entry I am
submitting is my original idea, has not been published
elsewhere, and is not copyrighted. I understand that all
entries become the exclusive property of Harmony Kingdom,
the Harmony Ball Company or its representatives, and that
I am not entitled to any compensation for it. I further
understand that the Harmony Ball Company is not to be held
responsible for any legal actions taken towards any
outside entity for violation of any national or regional

judges to understand your idea:

the exterior of the box in enough detail so that the
judges can understand your idea. For example: "A
box with three owls," is not sufficient
detail. However, "Three owls, one wearing a
necktie, stand in a circle facing outward. One has a
mouse crawling down its wing," provides
enough information to understand the idea. A
description of the interior is optional. A sketch is
optional -- where drawing ability does not count! An entry with an incomplete or insufficient
description will not be considered; it will be treated
as a Raffle entry only.

The winner of the Elusive Shark raffle.
- Design A
Jest winner selection: The judging will be
"blind," i.e. the judge will not know who submitted
which entry. It will be done in two phases. During the first
phase, a panel of HOP Delegates and Alternates will evaluate the
entries based on originality and humor or beauty. Ten
semi-finalists will be selected and forwarded to Harmony
Kingdom. In the unlikely event that two collectors submit
exactly the same idea, the entry submitted first will be
advanced to the next round. During the second phase, Harmony
Kingdom will evaluate the semi-finalists and select a winner.
The decision of the judges is final and not subject to appeal.
The names of the winner and semi-finalists will be announced in
the Fall 2001. The Design A Jest contest prize is a
prototype Treasure Jest -- either one based on the winning
idea or an alternate prototype selected by Martin Perry.
- Selection as
the Contest winner does not guarantee or imply that the design
will ever be produced by Harmony Kingdom.
