Ties will be broken by earliest upload time stamp, referring to the time zone for each region. To clarify, if the mystery bass length is 16.50″ and two or more end up with fish of that length on the leader board, the ties breaks in favor of whoever uploaded the photo earliest in the 14-hour competition window.
  24. Reward Distributions: a 48-hour Dispute Period commences when Event judging and review are complete and the Tournament Director announces preliminary results. When all disputes have been resolved—no sooner than 48 hours later—prizes, bonuses, AOY Points and KBFNC qualifications are finalized and posted on this page. Cash prizes are then distributed via PayPal Funds Transfer using the email address provided by Competitor during event registration. If KBF requires that a Competitor provide an IRS FORM W-9, prize distribution to that Competitor will occur after the completed, signed and dated form is received.
