Identity of Entrant:  All Submissions must be submitted by the individual entrant.  Bulk or automated entries will be disqualified (including entries made using any script, macro, bot, or promotional service).  Multiple participants are not permitted to share the same Instagram or Twitter account.  Any attempt to obtain additional entries through fraud or other illegitimate means will result in disqualification, at Sponsor’s discretion.

If there is a dispute about the identity of the entrant, entries will be declared made by the authorized account holder of the email address associated with the Instagram or Twitter account on which the Submission is made.  An “authorized account holder” means the natural person who is assigned to an e-mail address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization (e.g., business, educational institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the submitted e-mail address.  A potential winner may be required to provide Sponsor with proof that a potential winner is the authorized account holder of the account associated with the winning entry.

Selection and Notification of Winner:  The first 500 eligible Submissions posted during the Promotion Period will be selected as potentially winning Submissions and the eligible Nominee identified in each potentially winning Submission will be deemed a potential winner (subject to verification by Sponsor), consistent with the terms and requirements of these Official Rules.  The odds of a Submission being selected as a potentially winning Submission depend on the number of eligible entries received and the speed of the entrant’s posting.  Limit one prize per Nominee.

Each potentially winning Nominee will be notified via social media (e.g., direct message or a post by Sponsor) to the Instagram or Twitter account @handle included in the Submission on or about March 2, 2021.  To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, Sponsor may require each potential winner to sign and return, as specified by Sponsor, an Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability/Publicity Release in order to claim his/her prize.  If (i) the attempted notification is returned as undeliverable without a forwarding address or the potential winner does not respond within seven days of being notified by Sponsor; (ii) any required documents are not returned as specified by Sponsor, such as the Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability/Publicity Release; or (iii) potential winner is otherwise unable to accept the prize as stated, the prize will be forfeited and may be awarded to an alternate winner in accordance with the above selection process from among all eligible Submissions.  If, by reason of a print or other error, more prizes are claimed than the number set forth in these Official Rules, an alternate winner will be selected in accordance with the above selection process from among all eligible Submissions.   

Verification of Potential Winner: EACH POTENTIAL WINNER IS SUBJECT TO VERIFICATION BY SPONSOR, WHOSE DECISIONS ARE FINAL AND BINDING IN ALL MATTERS RELATED TO THE PROMOTION.  A NOMINEE IS NOT A PRIZE WINNER UNLESS AND UNTIL NOMINEE’S ELIGIBILITY HAS BEEN VERIFIED AND NOMINEE HAS BEEN NOTIFIED THAT VERIFICATION IS COMPLETE AND NO FURTHER ACTION IS NEEDED.

6

Prize: 500 Nominees will each receive one physical copy of Sponsor’s book titled “I Am A Creator Vol. 2” (Approximate Retail Value (“ARV”) of each book: $39.00).  Total ARV of all prizes to be awarded: $19,500. 

Prize Restrictions:  ALL TAXES ASSOCIATED WITH THE RECEIPT OR USE OF ANY PRIZE ARE THE SOLE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE WINNER.  Prizes are not transferable.  No substitutions or exchanges of any prize (including for cash) will be permitted, except that Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a prize of comparable or greater value for any prize.  Sponsor will not replace any lost or stolen prizes or prize components.  Only the number of prizes stated in these Official Rules are available to be won in the Promotion.
