No purchase necessary. Participants may submit one entry per household, regardless of the method. Multiple entries from the same household, even if from different methods, will not be considered valid and will not be judged. Incomplete or incomprehensible entries, or use of automated entry software, Artificial Intelligence or other mechanical or electronic means to participate will be disqualified.
All entries become the property of Administrator and will not be acknowledged or returned. Entrant grants the Administrator permission to use the entries for promotional purposes, with or without any legally required permission of the participants or entrants.
Entries will be reviewed and judged by a panel of three judges selected by the Administrator. Judges will evaluate entries based on the following criteria: originality, creativity, relevance to the contest theme (how the prize trip will contribute to the entrant’s Happily Ever After) and overall impact. Each judge will review all valid entries and, in their sole discretion, select their top three candidates. Candidates with the most first-place votes will win. In the case of a tie, the two remaining candidates will be ranked by each judge again, and the candidate with the most first-place votes will win.
The judges’ decision is final and binding in all respects.
The Administrator will attempt to notify the potential giveaway winner via e-mail or social media direct message on or around September 8, 2023. The Administrator will make a minimum of three attempts to contact the potential winner via the contact information provided during entry, using methods such as e-mail or direct message on the respective platform (TikTok or Instagram). If the potential winner cannot be reached within five days of the first attempt, an alternate winner may be selected. Only three (3) alternate prize winners will be selected, after which the prize will remain un-awarded. The potential Prize winner (parent/legal guardian if a minor in his/her state of residence) will be required to complete, electronically sign and submit a Declaration of Compliance within five (5) days of the date notice or attempted notice is sent, in order to claim his/her prize. If a potential winner cannot be contacted, or fails to submit the Declaration of Compliance within the required time period (if applicable), or prize is returned as undeliverable, potential winner forfeits prize.
If the potential winner is at least 18 but still considered a minor in his/her jurisdiction of residence, Administrator reserves the right to award the prize in the name of his/her parent or legal guardian, who will be required to sign the Declaration of Compliance on the potential winner’s behalf and fulfill any other requirements imposed on winner set forth herein.
Potential winner must continue to comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules, and winning is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements. In the event that a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, Administrator will award the applicable prize to an alternate winner from among all remaining eligible entries. Only three (3) alternate drawings will be held, after which the prize will remain un-awarded. All potential winners from Canada will be required to answer a time-limited skill-testing question correctly without any assistance to be eligible to receive a prize, or such prize will be forfeited.
The Prize will be fulfilled approximately 3-6 weeks after the conclusion of the Contest at which time the winner will receive booking instructions for a 5-night stay at a resort in Mexico and associated grand prize items. Travel must be completed by December 31, 2024. Blackout dates include but are not limited to November 23-27, 2023, December 22, 2023-January 7, 2024, and February 16-20, 2024. Booking is based on availability. If the winner forfeits the prize after it has been fulfilled, the prize will not be re-awarded. The prize is not transferable and must be accepted as awarded.
Prizes are considered taxable income by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA), as applicable. As such, the winner will be responsible for all taxes (including but not limited to federal, state, local and/or income) on the prize and will be required to provide their Social Security number or Taxpayer ID for tax reporting purposes if the value of the prize is $600 or more. The Sponsor will file an IRS Form 1099 with the Internal Revenue Service for the fair market value of the prize won by the giveaway winner who is a U.S. resident. Prize winner acknowledges that he/she will receive a Form 1099 from the Sponsor and agrees to provide whatever information is necessary for the Sponsor to comply with applicable governmental reporting requirements.
In the event that the operation, security, or administration or fulfillment of the Contest is impaired in any way for any reason, including, but not limited to fraud, virus, bug, worm, unauthorized human intervention or other technical problem, or in the event the Contest is unable to run as planned for any other reason including natural disasters or acts reasonably beyond the control of the Administrator, as determined by Administrator in its sole discretion, the Administrator may, in its sole discretion, either (a) suspend the Contest to address the impairment and then resume the Contest in a manner that best conforms to the spirit of these Official Rules or (b) terminate the Contest and, in the event of termination, award the prize at random from among the eligible, non-suspect entries received up to the time of the impairment. If the prize cannot be fulfilled due to the above impairment, the prize will be canceled.
The Administrator reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any individual it finds to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Contest or to be acting in violation of these Official Rules or in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner. Any attempt by any person to damage the website or undermine the legitimate operation of the Contest may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, the Administrator reserves the right to seek damages (including attorney’s fees) and any other remedies from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. Failure by the Administrator to enforce any provision of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.
