This prize will be awarded to the first-place winner of each season as long as at least a week before the end of the season first-place winner posts a screenshot or a video and a comment of his/her marathon game(s) of current marathon season to any of the major social media networks. 

If the season first-place winner doesn't qualify for this additional prize, the next qualifying player down the ranking of the marathon will receive the prize. Thus, even if you do not win the first place in the tournament, you could still receive this additional prize.
