Sponsor will make two (2) attempts to notify potential Winner by direct Instagram message. Sponsor may share potential Winner’s name and contact information with Sweepstakes Entities and/or any prize provider, as applicable, if necessary. Potential Winner and potential Winner’s Guest (defined below) may be required to execute and return an affidavit of eligibility, release of liability, and, except where prohibited, publicity release (collectively, “Sweepstakes Documents”) within two (2) days of such notification. Noncompliance within this time period will result in disqualification, and, at Sponsor’s sole discretion an alternate potential Winner may be selected from the remaining eligible Entries. If potential Winner cannot be reached, is found to be ineligible, cannot or does not comply with these Official Rules, or if Prize (as defined below) or prize notification is returned as undeliverable, potential Winner will be disqualified and time permitting, at Sponsor’s sole discretion, an alternate potential Winner may be selected from the remaining eligible Entries.
There will be one (1) prize awarded (“Prize”) to Winner. The Prize will consist of the following: (a) round trip coach airfare from a major airport located within the United States to Los Angeles, California (“Trip”) for Winner and one (1) guest who is twenty-one (21) years of age or older on the date of travel (“Guest”); (b) round trip ground transportation from the airport to the hotel accommodations for Winner and Guest; (c) three (3) days and two (2) nights hotel accommodations for Winner and Guest; and (d) two (2) tickets in the aggregate for Winner and Guest to the premiere of the motion picture entitled “Tully” presently scheduled to be held on April 10, 2018 in Los Angeles, California (the “Premiere”).
Estimated Retail Value (“ERV”) of Prize is four thousand United States Dollars (USD $4,000). Actual Retail Value (“ARV”) of Prize may vary. If Prize includes a Trip, ARV may vary based on, among other things, availability, existing rates at time of booking, dates of travel, and point of departure. Any difference between ERV and ARV will not be awarded. For any Prize with an ARV of six hundred dollars ($600) or greater, Sponsor will furnish an Internal Revenue Service Form 1099 to Winner for the ARV of Prize for the year in which Prize was won.
All details of Prize will be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute Prize (or portion thereof) with a similar prize (or prize element) of comparable or greater value. All taxes and other expenses, costs, or fees associated with the acceptance and/or use of Prize are the sole responsibility of Winner. Prize cannot be transferred by Winner or redeemed for cash and is valid only for the items detailed above, with no substitution of Prize by Winner. If Prize is unclaimed within a reasonable time after notification from Sponsor, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion, it will be forfeited, and time permitting, an alternate Winner may be selected from the remaining eligible Entries at Sponsor’s sole discretion.
Winner must be able to travel from April 9, 2018 through April 11, 2018 (or on such other dates designated by Sponsor in its sole and absolute discretion). The Trip awarded to the Winner must be taken within dates provided by the Sponsor or the Prize will be forfeited. Travel arrangements must be made through Sponsor’s agent, on a carrier of Sponsor’s choice. Certain travel restrictions and black out dates may apply. Sponsor has the right in its sole discretion to substitute ground transportation for air transportation depending on Winner’s place of residence. Winner and Guest must travel together on the same itinerary, including the same departure date, destination and return date, and must have valid travel documents (e.g., valid government issued photo ID and/or passport) prior to departure, and failure to do so will result in forfeiture of Prize. Sponsor will not replace any lost or stolen tickets, travel vouchers or certificates. If Winner chooses to attend the Trip and Premiere without a Guest, the remaining elements of Prize shall constitute full satisfaction of Sponsor’s Prize obligation to Winner and no additional compensation will be awarded. Once travel commences, no unscheduled stopovers are permitted; if an unscheduled stopover occurs, full fare will be charged from stopover point for the remaining segments, including return, of the Trip. Sponsor is not liable for any expenses incurred as a consequence of flight cancellation/delay. Trip may not be combined with any other offer and travel may not qualify for frequent flyer miles. All travel and lodging will be at the risk of Winner and Guest. Winner is solely responsible for all expenses and costs associated with acceptance and/or use of Prize not specifically stated herein as being awarded, including, without limitation any and all taxes and other expenses, costs, or fees associated with the acceptance and/or use of Prize, travel insurance, ground transportation (other than as described above),
security and airport fees, taxes, insurance, gasoline, meals, gratuities, and souvenirs. Sponsor shall have the right, but not the obligation, to make any deductions and withholdings that Sponsor deems necessary or desirable under applicable federal, state and local tax laws, rules, regulations, codes or ordinances.

Nothing herein shall be construed to require the Sponsor, its parent, subsidiary and/or affiliated entities to hold the Premiere. In the event that the Premiere does not or cannot take place as scheduled or at all, for reasons including but not limited to scheduling conflicts, cancellations, postponement, an event of force majeure or for any other reason, Winner shall be given the remaining items/elements of the Prize, and Sponsor’s obligation as to the to the Premiere shall be nullified and no other or additional compensation shall be awarded.

Furthermore, Sponsor does not guarantee that the Winner or Guest will interact or take photos with or of any celebrity, talent, or filmmakers during the Premiere.
