8. In the preliminary ”Parrot Video of the Year” Competition each month the ”Parrot Video of the Month” will be selected by the group members through the FB system of likes.
9. Each month a Participant can publish any number of videos featuring the same parrot in the ”Parrot Video Makers” FB Group. The parrot presented in the video does not need to be owned by the Participant. If a Participant is not a video author, he/she must have its author’s consent to use it (see pt. 14 of Rules).
10. The video length and parameters are unlimited. However, videos of the best possible quality are preferred (recorded horizontally and with the maximized camera resolution), since only such videos will be rewarded by incorporating in the possible Organizer’s video summarizing each Competition edition and published on the Parrot TV YouTube channel. A couple of video clips published in one post are treated as a whole, in other words - as one video.
11. The "Parrot Video of the Month" title will be awarded to a video which will score the highest number of "likes" added by group members within the current month.

A Participant can publish any number of videos during one month and every month, however, the same videos must not be published again. The number of "likes" gained by the "Parrot Video of the Month" will not influence the score of the "Parrot Video of the Year". Only the number of "likes" gained in the final voting will determine this choice. In case of placing a couple of video clips in one post, only "likes" added for the post as a whole (not for particular videos) will be taken into account.
12. After the end of the calendar year the list of winners of particular months will be published by the Organizer in the ”Parrot Video Makers” FB Group and on the Parrot Shop FB Page. The video which will gain the biggest number of "likes" within 30 days from the publishing date will be elected the "Parrot Video of the Year". 1 day is counted as 24 hours which elapsed from the publishing time.
