Once the registration phase is over and You have uploaded and submitted Your Submitted Content to the Website, members of the public will vote for their favourite Submitted Content, based on creativity, "charm" of their application, energy and adventure factor to determine the top teams per country (“Finalists”) (“Social Voting”), which will then be eligible to be selected by the Judges. The number of Finalists will be equal to 25% of the total number of applications for each country. However, the minimum shall be at least four times the country team quota (found in the list below 6.7). For example, Austria will have 4 teams in its country team quota. If Austria has 100 applications, they should have 25 Finalists (25%). If Austria has 20 applications, they should have 16 Finalists (four times more than their country quota). Any decimal numbers will be rounded up to the next whole number (eg. 3,2 would be rounded to 4).

The decision of the Judges is final and no correspondence or discussion will be entered into. Out of the successful registrations as described above and considering the country quotas as described below the Judges’ decision will be based on creativity, "charm" of their application, energy and adventure factor. Due to the expected high number of entries, individual feedback is not possible.
  4. Organizer will announce the 200 National Team Winners’ Submitted Content on the Website on March 9th, 2020.

FINAL PHASE (MAIN EVENT)

  1. During the event week (April 21 – April 28, 2020), where these 200 National Team Winners will participate in the Main Event, Organizer will determine a first place and second place through the scoring system as stipulated below (“Event Week”).
  2. During the Main Event, the National Team Winners have to travel hundreds of kilometres from the Starting Point to the Finish Line located in one major European city within seven days (as listed under the Prizes section). Along the way, the National Team Winners create their own path by visiting checkpoints in different cities, posting photos and videos of the journey via the event mobile app and their personal Instagram accounts, completing as many tasks of the Adventure List (which is provided to the participants beforehand) as possible using as many modes of transportation as needed and gathering support from followers back home.
  3. The National Team Winners will begin from one of five major European cities (Barcelona, Milan, Budapest, Copenhagen and Amsterdam) that will be assigned to them by Organizer (the National Team Winners cannot choose their Starting Point). Each National Team Winner will receive a Welcome Kit including a team mobile phone, a map, business cards for the Main Event, safety instructions, a backpack and, of course, a case of 24 cans of Red Bull. Competitors may only bring one extra backpack each (containing for example clothing, personal care items, umbrellas, ID etc.). Additional luggage and other belongings will be securely transported by Organizer to the Finish Line for pick-up at the end of the week. All National Team Winners will leave from their designated Starting Point at 12:00 (noon) CET (or local time zone equivalent) on April 21st, 2020 and have one week to make it to the Finish Line located in one major European city by 15:00 CET (or local time zone equivalent) on April 28th, 2020. In case a Participant does not show up in time for on-site check-in at the designated Starting Point, his or her entire team will have forfeited the right to participate and will have no right to claim a refund. Organizer can decide to make an exception if a team is late due to reasons beyond their control (e.g. delayed flight).
  4. Personal phones, smart watches, computers, tablets, GPS and other such devices as well as cash, credit/debit cards and all other forms of payment (altogether "Prohibited Items") will be sealed in tamper proof envelopes / containers to be provided by Organizer. If the seal is broken during the week, the respective National Team Winner is disqualified. Organizer will have the right to control all backpacks and personal belongings of the Participants at the Starting Line in order screen out Prohibited Items. Participants who are unwilling to undergo such screening or who are attempting to use Prohibited Items during the Main Event will be disqualified along with their respective team.
  5. Checkpoints will be located in different cities all throughout Europe and are assigned a different number of points based on their difficulty, geographical location and the time duration of each checkpoint challenge. When a National Team Winner arrives at a Checkpoint, they are rewarded with more cans of Red Bull for the journey. Each Checkpoint will have a Challenge that National Team Winners must successfully complete to earn points towards their score (“Checkpoint Challenge and/or Checkpoint Category”). Challenges will test the National Team Winners’ body and mind (including physical activities, puzzles, problem solving) and will vary in difficulty, requiring strategy, creativity and speed. They may only attempt each Checkpoint Challenge once. If they fail, they are not rewarded with any points for that Checkpoint. The National Team Winners will be required to visit at least six (6) Checkpoints on their way to the Finish Line in order to successfully complete the Main Event.
  6. The National Team Winners can earn additional points on their journey either by completing items on the Adventure List (“Adventure Category”) or by building their social support strength by uploading, sharing or liking team content on Instagram (Social Category). Social Points are measured by the level of involvement (e.g. likes/comments) they are able to generate around their uploaded content. The Adventure List is a mix between a scavenger hunt and a bucket list. These are fun, engaging activities that can be completed at any time during the Promotion. In order to receive credit for completion, they must prove it through photo or video. The more points at stake, the harder it is to complete.
  7. Each National Team Winner begins the journey with one case of 24 Red Bull cans (“Cans”) and has to trade Cans for everything they need on the journey — food, a place to sleep, transportation to the next location and for other needs that come up along the journey. Cash, credit cards, Bitcoins and other forms of payment are not allowed and such items will be sealed in tamper proof containers.
  8. The Finish Line is the final stop on the Red Bull Can You Make It? Adventure. It will be located in a major European city and will be disclosed before the Event Week. The National Team Winners need to complete their journey by 15:00 CET (or local time zone equivalent) on April 28, 2020 in order to be ranked. If National Team Winners successfully make it to the Finish Line earlier than April 28, 2020, Organizer shall not provide the team members with accommodation prior to April 28, 2020. Furthermore, no accommodation whatsoever will be provided to National Team Winners unsuccessfully finishing the Main Event (e.g. being disqualified due to cheating or opening their sealed envelopes or forfeiting the Promotion). In the case of an emergency or if a National Team Winner decides that they cannot participate any further, Organizer will arrange transportation to their place of origin without charge.
  9. The "Overall Winner Team" will be selected based on their score in 3 different categories (Social Category, Checkpoint Category and Adventure Category). National Team Winners will be competing for points, which will determine their rank in each of these categories. Each ranking is associated with one score and the sum up of the three scores will be the final result for the teams.
  • - Social Points -> Rank -> Score 1
  • - Checkpoints Points -> Rank -> Score 2
  • - Adventure Points -> Rank -> Score 3

The National Team Winners’ final result will consist of the sum of their total scores in all three categories: Score 1 + Score 2 + Score 3 = Final result. If there is a tie, the team with higher ranking in Social is the winner.

  • Score 1: Social support strength of the team:
    • Points will be awarded based on the quality of the content posted on Instagram, which will also be aggregated on redbullcanyoumakeit.com
  • Score 2: Checkpoints Challenges completed:
    • A different number of points will be awarded for each Checkpoint Challenge successfully completed.
  • Score 3: Number of tasks completed from the Adventure List:

A different number of points will be awarded for each Adventure challenge the National Team Winners complete, Adventure challenges have different points related to their difficulty. These points will be awarded with ‘proof' of completion of the task either through photo or video.

Exact scoring system will be shared with the Participants during the detailed briefing on April 20, 2020, Organizer will also determine the 2nd placed winner.

10. All National Team Winners that will participate in the Main Event will be provided with a mobile phone that will be preprogrammed with the event application as well as a direct emergency number to the Central Command. All outgoing or incoming connections (data, websites, texts, calls, etc.) are forbidden and may be blocked, except a direct number to the Central Command and Organizer and except for the web app connections within the limits of the application. Participants understand and agree that all the data created or going through the use of the phone can be used by Organizer, according to sections 11 and 12. The mobile phone will have to be handed back to the designated Organizer Staff at the end of the Main Event and remains the property of Organizer and its cooperation partners at all times.

11. Central Command of the Main Event is an office set up by Organizer that will run 24 hours for the 7 days during the event week. It will be the primary controlling center of the Main Event and the contact point of the Participants in case of emergency or questions. Central Command will also track the progress of each team.

12. All team members will have to place their personal devices such as mobile phones along with money and credit cards in a sealed envelope / in a tamper proof container to take with them on their journey. In the event of an emergency or if a National Team Winner decides that they cannot make it to the finish they can open the sealed envelope. In order to be eligible to win the Main Event, the entire team must arrive at the Finish Line without transportation organized by Central Command and with the original seal of the envelope / container still intact. Any suspected cheating or tampering will lead to the entire team's disqualification.

13. Other personal belongings of the Participants that have not been sealed in tamper proof containers and that are not transported in a backpack can be handed over to Organizer Staff once the Participants reach their designated Starting Point. A protocol will have to be signed by the Participants documenting the handed-over belongings. Such belongings will then be transported from the respective Starting Point to the Finish Line at the cost of Organizer. Containers and bags should be handed over in a sealed state; no grievance will be accepted with regard to loss or damage of their content. No valuable items should be handed over, as neither Organizer nor its cooperation partners can be made liable for any loss or damage with regard to such items. In order to retrieve their belongings at the Finish Line, Participants will be required to show identification and to confirm that their items have been retrieved by resigning the protocol. No grievance whatsoever will be possible once such signature has been given.

14. The contact details the Participant provides with the Promotion entry will be used to notify the Participant of any prizes; the Participant shall make sure that they are correct.

15. The Overall Winner Team as well as the Second Place Winner Team will be announced immediately after the end of the event week (“Announcement Date”).
