Puddles Collection Spring 2014 Photo Contest

SPONSOR

Sponsor is Puddles Collection.

TERM

The Puddles Collection Spring 2014 Photo Contest begins on April 11, 2014, 9:00 AM US Pacific Time (PT) and ends on May 10, 2014, 11:59:00 Pacific Time (PT).  Information on how to enter and prizes form part of these official rules (“Official Rules”). By submitting an entry, each entrant agrees to the Official Rules and warrants that his or her entry complies with all requirements set out in the Official Rules.

WHO MAY ENTER

Contest is open only to individuals who are 18 years of age or older and who reside within the United States. Employees of Puddles Collection, and its subsidiaries and affiliates, and their immediate family members (spouse, parent, child, sibling and their respective spouses, regardless of where they live) or persons living in the same households of such employees, whether or not related are not eligible.

HOW TO ENTER

Please submit photos by email to leverage AT puddlescollection.com or by using hashtag #puddlescollectioncontest on Instagram. We have limited the photo submission to these two channels to ensure everyone’s picture is made live on the Instagram account as quickly as possible. We encourage you to spread the word and encourage as many of your friends, family, Facebook friends, Twitter followers, Instagram followers, etc., to vote for your photo.

You can only submit one photo. If you find a photo that you prefer over the one you previously submitted, email it to us and we will replace the photo on the Instagram feed.  Photos can include more than one child. Do make it clear which child in the photo is being voted on.

HOW TO WIN

You can only vote once. Due to the nature of Instagram, an Instagram handle can only vote once for any given photo.  Winner is selected through a raffle system. Each photo entry receives one raffle “ticket.” For every 5 likes on Instagram, another ticket is granted the entrant’s photo. For example, if a photo has 20 likes on Instagram, the entrant will have 5 “tickets” to win (1 from their photo submission, 4 from the likes accumulated).

Within one week after the end of the contest term.  Puddles Collection will select one raffle ticket at random from all the raffle tickets granted.  The owner of that raffle ticket will be deemed the winner.

CONTEST PRIZE

The individual whose raffle ticket is selected will receive an iPad Mini.

The winner may be required to sign and return within ten (10) days following an attempted notification, an Affidavit, Declaration or Certificate of Eligibility, Liability Release, and where legally permissible, a Publicity Release and Warranty of Ownership and License in which the entrant warrants that he/she is the owner of the photograph (and all the intellectual property rights in the photograph submitted) and grants to Sponsor and its licensees the irrevocable, perpetual, worldwide non-exclusive license to reproduce, distribute, display, and create derivative works of the entry (along with a name credit) in connection with the Contest and promotion of the Contest without additional compensation. Failure to execute and deliver any required documents to Sponsor by the specified deadline may result in disqualification from the Contest, and selection of an alternate potential winner. NONCOMPLIANCE OR RETURN OF PRIZE NOTIFICATION AS UNDELIVERABLE, WHETHER BY REGULAR MAIL OR BY EMAIL, MAY RESULT IN DISQUALIFICATION AND SELECTION OF AN ALTERNATE POTENTIAL WINNER.

No prize transfer, assignment, or substitution by winners permitted. If a prize (or part of a prize) is unavailable, the Sponsor, in its discretion, reserves the right to substitute the original prize (or that part of the prize) with an alternative prize to the equal monetary value and/or specification, unless to do so would be prohibited by law.
