Illegible, incomplete, machine-printed, typewritten or mechanically reproduced entries will not be accepted. Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, illegible, incomplete, damaged, misdirected, or stolen entries. All entries become Sponsor’s property, and none will be returned. By submitting an entry, each Sweepstakes entrant (referred to herein as “Participant,” “you” or “your”) agrees to be bound by these Official Rules and all decisions of the Sponsor and Sweepstakes judges. Any questions regarding the number or eligibility of entries submitted shall be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion, and Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any entries by persons who submit false or misleading entry information or who Sponsor determines to be tampering with or abusing any aspect of the Sweepstakes.
  4. Winner Selection and Odds. On or about April 13, 2020, during the MEDIAWORKS 2019 Grand Prize Draw Event (to be held at the Draw Event Venue), Sponsor will select one (1) provisional winner in a live, random drawing (the “Drawing”) from among all eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes Period. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes Period.
  5. Prize Description. Subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules, one (1) individual whose entry is drawn at random will receive a vacation experience voucher (the “Prize”). The approximate retail value of the Prize is: $5,000. Prize does not include taxes, insurance, or any other costs incurred in claiming, possessing or using the Prize, all of which costs are the responsibility of the Winner (as defined below).
  6. Winner Notification and Acceptance.
    1. During the Drawing (to be held on or about April 13, 2020 at the MEDIAWORKS 2019 Grand Prize Draw Event at the Draw Event Venue) Sponsor will attempt to notify the initial provisional winner. Provisional winner must be present at the Drawing in order to win the Prize.
    2. In order to “Claim” the Prize, a provisional winner must do each of the following: (i) respond in person to Sponsor’s notification at the Drawing and indicate that he/she is willing to accept the Prize; and (ii) within thirty (30) days of notification, complete, execute, notarize (as applicable) and return to Sponsor an affidavit of eligibility and liability/publicity release (“Release”), and all necessary related tax forms and information. Without limitation of the foregoing, the provisional winner will be required to provide his or her valid Social Security number to Sponsor for tax reporting purposes and (if applicable) complete an IRS W-9 form in order to Claim the Prize.
    3. If a given provisional winner is not present at the Drawing (or if the provisional winner fails timely to respond to notification), or fails promptly to Claim the Prize in accordance with these Official Rules, or otherwise fails promptly to comply with any requirement or provision of these Official Rules, that provisional winner will be deemed disqualified, and Sponsor, at Sponsor’s sole discretion, may either declare the Prize forfeited (in which case the Prize will remain un-awarded) or select an alternate provisional winner in a random drawing from all remaining eligible entries. Sponsor may (but need not) conduct any number of such random drawings to select an alternate provisional winner.
    4. A given provisional winner will be named the official winner (“Winner”) upon Sponsor’s verification of the provisional winner’s eligibility, including verification of residency, and receipt of a notarized and executed Release and related tax forms. A PROVISIONAL WINNER WHO PURPORTEDLY CLAIMS A PRIZE SHALL NOT QUALIFY AS THE WINNER OF THE PRIZE UNLESS AND UNTIL SPONSOR HAS COMPLETED ITS VERIFICATION OF THE INDIVIDUAL’S ELIGIBILITY.
    5. A Winner may waive the right to receive the Prize. The Prize is non-assignable and non-transferable and cannot be redeemed for cash. No substitutions are allowed by the Winner. The Prize is subject to availability. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a prize of equal or greater value for the Prize. The Winner is solely responsible for reporting and payment of any taxes (federal, state and local) on the Prize and, as applicable, will be issued an IRS Form 1099 based on the Prize value determined by Sponsor. If the Prize is not won and Claimed by an eligible winner in accordance with these Official Rules, the Prize will not be awarded and will remain the property of Sponsor or Sponsor’s supplier.
