JUDGING CRITERIA: All eligible Entries received by Sponsor during each Weekly Period will be judged by a panel of qualified judges utilizing the following criteria: Appropriateness of the Entry to the Contest theme (25%); creativity and originality (25%); ability to effectively express their payday dance pride (25%); and uniqueness (25%). The one (1) Entry from each Weekly Period receiving the highest score will be deemed a potential Grand Prize winner. Non-winning Entries from one Weekly Period will not be considered for subsequent Weekly Periods. In the event of a tie, the Entry with the highest score in the “ability to effectively express their payday dance pride” criteria will be deemed the applicable potential winner. Sponsor reserves the right not to award all Grand Prizes if, in its sole discretion, it does not receive a sufficient number of eligible and qualified Entries.
NOTIFICATION/PRIZE CLAIMS: Each potential Grand Prize Winner will be contacted by Instagram direct message or comment, telephone, email or any other available contact source provided within five (5) business days following the conclusion of each applicable Weekly Period (the “Notification”). The potential Grand Prize Winners may be required to sign and return, within five (5) days of receipt, an Affidavit of Eligibility/Liability/Publicity Release and an IRS W-9 Form (the “Paperwork”) in order to claim the Grand Prize. If a potential Grand Prize Winner fails to return the Paperwork within that time, if the Grand Prize Notification is returned as undeliverable, or if an Entrant is found to be ineligible, or if he/she does not comply with the Official Rules, then the potential Grand Prize Winner will be disqualified and a runner-up Grand Prize Winner may be notified for the respective Weekly Period. Even if the name of a potential Grand Prize Winner is publicly announced, the potential Grand Prize Winner must complete all documents provided and be confirmed by Sponsor prior to receiving a Grand Prize. Once a potential Grand Prize Winner has been confirmed by the Sponsor, except where prohibited by law, Grand Prize Winner’s Entry and acceptance of the Grand Prize constitutes permission for the Contest Entities to use said Grand Prize Winner’s name, photograph, likeness, statements, biographical information and voice on a worldwide basis, and in all forms of media, in perpetuity, without further compensation.
GRAND PRIZES (2) (One (1) per Weekly Period): Each winner will receive $100. If a winner has a Green Dot account in good standing, the Grand Prize will be credited to his/her Green Dot account. If a winner does not have a Green Dot account in good standing the winner will be awarded his/her Grand Prize in the form of a check. Approximate Retail Value (“ARV”) of each Grand Prize: $100.
PRIZE RESTRICTIONS: If the amount of the Grand Prize loaded to the Grand Prize Winner’s Account Card causes the Grand Prize Winner’s balance to go over their Green Dot account’s maximum balance limit, the remaining amount of the Grand Prize will be awarded to the Grand Prize Winner in the form of a check. No prize substitution, except at Sponsor’s sole discretion or as otherwise provided herein. Grand Prizes are not transferable. All taxes on the Grand Prizes are the sole responsibility of the Grand Prize Winners and are not transferable. Grand Prize Winners are solely responsible for all other expenses not specified herein, including but not limited to applicable taxes, card fees, and check cashing fees.
Sponsor reserves the right to exclude entries from any Entrant or any potential Grand Prize Winner who is suspected of theft, fraud, or any criminal activity related to Sponsor or its affiliates. Entries associated with fraudulent Green Dot account or other unauthorized use of a Green Dot account and entries associated with any similar fraudulent or inappropriate activities relating to any such Green Dot accounts will be void and all such Entrants may be disqualified. Without limiting the foregoing, if an Entrant’s Green Dot account has been suspended or closed due to suspected fraud, he/she will not be eligible to win.
