Winner Selection; Notification
TalentEgg shall choose two finalists and one Grand Prize Winner based on the creativity and evocativeness of the photo on September 26, 2016. The decision of TalentEgg is final. The odds of winning a prize depends upon the number of eligible entries received. The potential winner will be contacted via direct message from TalentEgg. The potential winner will have 24 hours from the time TalentEgg sends the notification to potential winner to respond. If there is no response by the deadline, such potential winner forfeits all rights to win the Contest or receive the prize, and an alternate potential winner will be randomly selected. The alternate winner will then have one 24 hours from the time TalentEgg sends the notification. If there is no response by the deadline, TalentEgg will continue the above process until a winner is confirmed. Upon contacting a potential winner and determining that he/she has met all eligibility requirements of the Contest, including without limitation the execution of required waivers, publicity and liability releases and disclaimers, such individual will be declared the official "Winner" of the Contest. Winner may be required to provide their full name, mailing address, phone number, and age.
In order to be declared a winner by the contest judges, a potential winner must be in compliance with these Official Rules and, in particular, the following:
- The potential winner must correctly answer, within a set timeframe, a mathematical skill-testing question administered by a TalentEgg representative by telephone.
- The potential winner must complete, sign and return a standard form declaration and release prepared by TalentEgg within five (5) business days from the date on which the form is sent to the potential winner. If the potential winner fails to return a completed declaration and release to TalentEgg within the deadline, such potential winner shall be deemed to have automatically forfeited his/her right to claim the prize, and TalentEgg shall have the right to select (an)other potential winner(s).
If a potential or declared winner is not in compliance with the Official Rules, the TalentEgg reserves the right to disqualify such entrant from the Contest and randomly select further entrants from the remaining eligible entries until an official Winner is finally declared. Entrants will not be individually contacted, except for selected entrants or potential or declared winners.
The official Winner will be announced on www.facebook.com/TalentEgg, twitter.com/talentegg, and instagram.com/talentegg as soon as a final Winner is determined, whichever is later. TalentEgg will post the Winner's name. Any individual who, at the sole determination of TalentEgg, abuses the entry process in any way will be disqualified. TalentEgg is not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible or misdirected entries, which will be disqualified.
