HOW TO ENTER
Follow @rickisfashion on Instagram (http://instagram.com/rickisfashion) and post a photo using the #loverickis hashtag. Entrants may enter as often as they like over the entire Promotion Period, provided each photo submitted and tagged with #loverickis represents the Ricki’s brand (i.e. Ricki’s clothing, stores, or lifestyle). Entries generated by a script, macro, or other automated means are void. Entries that are altered, tampered with, incomplete, inaccurate, irregular in any way, in any way detrimental to the Ricki’s brand (as determined by Ricki’s), or otherwise not in compliance with the Rules, shall also be disqualified at the sole discretion of Ricki’s.
Entries will be included in the draw for the month in which they were entered – based on date the hashtag was used, not on the date the photo was uploaded to Instagram.
Odds of winning will depend on the total number of eligible entries received during each contest month during the course of the Promotion Period. Ricki’s reserves the right to remove an entry from the Contest and consequently disqualify any person tampering with the entry process or otherwise in violation of the Rules – or to cancel, terminate, or modify the Promotion in its sole discretion.
By accepting their prize, each Participant agrees to these Official Rules. Entries received before the contest period will be included in the draw(s). Entries received after the Promotion Period will be void. Entries will be deemed made by the authorized account holder of the Instagram account used at time of entry. In case of any doubt as to the identification of the entrant, the natural person who owns the Instagram account utilized to enter shall be deemed to be the entrant.
WINNER SELECTION & NOTIFICATION PROCESS
One entry per month will be selected via random draw. Draws will take place beginning March 4, 2018 at 1670 Inkster Boulevard in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Subsequent draws will occur on the first Tuesday of each month, ending the month following the last Contest Period month.
Each monthly winner will be notified via a tag on Instagram within one week of the draw and will be required to email firstname.lastname@example.org to claim their prize. In order to claim a Prize, the Winner will have to correctly answer a time-limited, mathematical skill testing question (without the assistance of another individual or mechanical device) to be administered by a representative of Ricki’s during a pre-arranged, mutually convenient telephone call or by such other means as Ricki’s may require.
If the Participant does not email email@example.com within seven (7) days of notification, incorrectly answers the time-limited mathematical skill testing question, does not claim the Prize after five (5) business days, or is otherwise disqualified from the Contest, another winning Entrant may or may not be selected, at Ricki’s sole discretion. Should Ricki’s choose to award a Prize to another winning Entrant, it will select a Prize winner among the remaining eligible entries.
There will be one (1) individual prize awarded per monthly draw (twelve (12) prizes in total). The Winner of each draw will be offered a $100 Ricki’s Gift Card. The prize will be delivered to the Winner by mail or transferred to a Ricki’s location of her choice, to be picked up by the Winner within 30 days.
