They further explain that they "will attempt to notify the Winners by email or direct message on Website within seven (7) days of selection", so it could be expected that winners will be notified before October 28th. Once notified, winners will have 7 days to respond and complete the necessary paperwork. If any winners fail to reply, a runner up may be chosen. The winners will be officially announced live at Wattcon in Los Angeles on Saturday, November 19th.
