One (1) Onyx One Contest Winner (the “MF Winner”) will be awarded the prize in the form of a Markforged Onyx One Printer (the “MF Onyx One Prize”). The MF Winner will be selected from eligible MF Entrants. The MF Winner will be selected following the MF Entry Period on or before the 20th day of January from among all eligible entries received (from December 3, 2020 through January 6, 2021).
The Approximate Retail Value of the MF Onyx One Prize is $4,500.00. The MF Onyx One Prize is non transferable, and no substitution is allowed.
The Selection Process
The MF Winner is selected from all eligible, non-duplicate entries with valid email addresses, received during the MF Entry Period (the “Selection Process”). The Selection Process is performed by a selection committee (the “MF Selection Committee”). The MF Selection Committee may include between three (3) and six (6) Markforged employees.
The Selection Process will be conducted on or about January 20th, 2021. The chances of winning will depend on the total number of Eligible Entries received. The Selection Process is a blind process. All information identifying the MF Entrant is not visible to members of the MF Selection Committee. The Selection Process is based on the following criteria:
30 % -- Technical: Does the design show excellence and ease of industrial 3D printing?
30 % -- Functionality: Is the design mechanically sound? Will it function as intended?
20 % -- Presentation: Is the design presented in quality, dimensioned, with print settings, and assembly instructions (as required)?
20% -- Design Creativity and Uniqueness (subjective)
After the Selection Process, on or about January 20th, 2021, the MF Winner will be sent an email to the email address they submitted with their entry. MF will only contact the MF Winner regarding the Onyx One Contest if selected. Return of any prize notification email as undeliverable may result in disqualification, and an alternate winner may be selected. MF will transport the MF Winner’s MF Onyx One Prize to the address associated with the email from the MF Winner’s Entry. All potential winners are subject to verification of eligibility before the MF Onyx One Prize will be awarded.
The MF Winner is solely responsible for all national, federal, state, and local taxes and other fees associated with prize receipt and use. The MF Winner is required to pay taxes on the MF Onyx One Prize. Markforged shall issue a 1099 form to the MF Winner of the MF Onyx One Prize as it is valued over $600. No substitution, assignment or transfer of prizes permitted, except by the Onyx One Contest Entities, who reserve the right to substitute the MF Onyx One Prize with another prize of greater or at least equal value (to the ARV).
(a) The MF Winner
The MF Winner will be required to execute an affidavit of eligibility, release of liability and where legal, a publicity release within 10 days of notification attempt or the prize will be forfeited, and an alternate MF Winner will be selected. Acceptance of the MF Onyx One Prize constitutes permission to use the MF Winners’ names and likenesses for promotional purposes without further compensation except where prohibited by law.
(b) Opt-In Box (checked):
By leaving the Opt-in box checked on the Onyx One Contest entry form, the MF Entrant agrees that the contact information, including name, address, and email address provided may be collected and stored by Markforged or its agent and may be used by Markforged or its agent to contact the MF Entrant; and that they may contact the MF Entrant regarding their products or services. If an MF Entrant decides at a later date that he or she wishes to have Markforged remove his or her contact information from its list, the MF Entrant may email Markforged at email@example.com the word “WITHDRAW” in the subject line and including his or her name and address in the body of the email. Removal of Entrant’s name will be accomplished as soon as is reasonably practicable.

An MF Entrant who “un-checks” the Opt-In box on the Onyx One Contest entry form agrees that the MF Entrant’s contact information, including name, address and email address may be collected and stored by Markforged or its agent and used by Markforged to contact the MF Entrant, but in this case, the MF Entrant’s contact information will not be given to any third parties. Leaving the Opt-in boxes checked or unchecked will have no effect on the probability of an MF Entrant’s Entry being selected. Where required by law, Markforged may be required to disclose MF Entrant information to the government.

If any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to the Official Rules, the Onyx One Contest, or the breach of any term hereof cannot be settled through direct discussions for a period of 30 days, each MF Entrant agrees, then, upon notice duly served, that the controversy or claim shall be resolved by binding and final arbitration administered by JAMS or its successor (“JAMS”), at JAMS’ Boston, Massachusetts office, before a single neutral arbitrator appointed in accordance with the streamlined arbitration rules and procedures, or subsequent versions thereof, including the optional appeal procedure (including the optional JAMS Rules, including, without limitation, the rule providing that each party will contribute equally to JAMS fees and expenses and the rules providing for limited discovery and other exchange of information).
