HOW TO ENTER
There is one (1) way to enter:
Visit the Promotion entry page located at folkfest.org/giveaway, fill out the form with the correct information, and hit submit.
For all entries
Each entrant is eligible to submit up to one (1) Promotion entry during the Promotion Period, regardless of method or combination of methods of entry or number of entries submitted. Multiple entrants are not permitted to share the same email address or other relevant account. Any attempt by you to obtain more than the stated number of entries by using multiple/different email addresses, identities, registrations and logins, or any other methods will void your entries and you may be disqualified. Use of any repetitive, automatic, programmed or similar technology, system or agent (including without limitation promotion entry services) to enter is prohibited and will void all of your entries. Any automated receipt (such as one confirming delivery of text message or e-mail) does not constitute proof of actual receipt by Administrator of an entry. Promotion Entities are not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible or misdirected entries, which will be disqualified. All entries become the property of Administrator and none will be acknowledged or returned.
For all prizing
Odds of winning a prize depend on the number of eligible entries received during the Promotion Period. There will be only one prize per winner. Lost or stolen prizes will not be replaced. The prize does not include any other item or expense not specifically described in these Official Rules, and any such additional items or expenses are the sole responsibility of winner. Prizes may not be transferred or assigned. Only listed prizes will be awarded and no other prizing or substitutions will be made. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if a prize includes tickets to an event and the event is cancelled, Administrator reserves the right to attempt to substitute tickets to a different event (and any related travel) or to not award the prize. Winner agrees to accept the prize “as is”, and you hereby acknowledge that Promotion Entities have neither made nor are in any manner responsible or liable for any warranty, representation, or guarantee, express or implied, in fact or in law, relative to the prize, including express warranties (if any) provided exclusively by a prize supplier that are sent along with the prize. The valuation of any prize stated is based on available information provided to Administrator. The value of any prize awarded to a winner will be reported for tax purposes as required by law. Winner is solely responsible for reporting and paying any and all applicable taxes. Winner must provide Administrator with a valid W9 form before any prize will be awarded.
SELECTION AND VERIFICATION OF POTENTIAL WINNER
Administrator will randomly select one (1) potential Grand Prize winner from all eligible entries on or around Sunday, August 7, 2022. Administrator’s decisions as to the administration and operation of the Promotion and the selection of potential winners are final and binding in all matters related to the Promotion. Administrator reserves the right to disqualify any participant or winner and may refuse to award any prize to a person who is ineligible or has violated any rule, gained unfair advantage in participating in the Promotion, or obtained winner status using fraudulent means.
All potential winners are subject to verification by Administrator. Administrator will not accept screen shots or other evidence of winning in lieu of its validation process. Any entry that occurs after the system has failed for any reason is deemed a defective entry and is void and will not be honored. Potential winners must continue to comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules and winning is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements. Each potential winner will be notified by email, phone, or direct message to the social media account, as applicable. Each potential winner may be required to sign and return an Affidavit of Eligibility, Liability and Publicity Release and a valid W9 form as applicable, which must be received by Administrator within seventy-two (72) hours of the date notice or attempted notice is sent, in order to claim a prize (if applicable). If a winner is a minor in his or her state of residency, the affidavit must also be executed by the winner’s parent or legal guardian. If a potential winner of any prize cannot be contacted, fails to sign and return the required affidavit and tax documents within the required time period (if applicable), declines the prize or prize is returned as undeliverable, the potential winner forfeits the prize. In the event that a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, Administrator will select an alternate potential winner by random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries, up to three (3) alternate potential winners. All alternate potential winners are subject to all requirements set forth in these Official Rules. If an alternate potential winner declines the prize or is disqualified, the prize will not be awarded.
Potential winners are restricted from any communication (e.g., announcing, telling any other person, or posting online via website, blog or any social media platform) stating that they have been contacted or are a potential winner or winner until Administrator has fully verified eligibility and Administrator has notified potential winner that he or she has been approved to communicate winner status.
If, for any reason, your entry is confirmed to have been erroneously deleted, lost, or otherwise destroyed or corrupted, your sole remedy is to submit another Promotion entry, if possible. If the Promotion, or any part of it, is discontinued for any reason, Administrator, in its sole discretion, may elect to hold a random drawing from among all eligible entries received up to the date of discontinuance for any prize offered herein. No more than the stated number of prizes will be awarded. In the event that production, technical, seeding, or programming errors or any other reasons cause more than the stated number of prizes as set forth herein to be available and/or claimed, Administrator reserves the right to award only the stated number of prizes by a random drawing among all legitimate, un-awarded, eligible prize claims.
Except where prohibited, participation in the Promotion constitutes your consent for Promotion Entities to use your name, social media identity, likeness, voice, opinions, hometown and state for promotional purposes in any media, worldwide, without further payment or consideration.
ERRORS AND UNAUTHORIZED ACTIVITIES
In the event that the operation, security, or administration of the Promotion is impaired in any way for any reason, including without limitation, fraud, virus or other technical problem, or any other reason beyond the control of Promotion Entities, Administrator may, in its sole discretion, either: (a) suspend the Promotion to address the impairment and then resume the Promotion in a manner that best conforms to the spirit of these Official Rules; or (b) cancel or terminate the Promotion and, if feasible, award the prizes in a random drawing from among all eligible entries received up to the time of the impairment. 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 Promotion or to be acting in violation of the Official Rules of this or any other promotion, or in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner. Any attempt by any person to undermine the legitimate operation of the Promotion may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, Promotion Entities reserve the right to seek damages from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. Administrator’s failure to enforce any provision of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.
