Sweepstakes, winners are selected at random and all drawings are witnessed. It is a best practice to utilize an independent judging agency to determine promotion winners. Entrants may inquire how winners were determined, independent judging removes any biases or prejudices. It is the same reason that the Academy Awards depends upon an accounting company to tabulate votes that determine Oscar winners.
