4. HOW TO ENTER: To enter the Sweepstakes and to qualify for entry, Entrant must: (i) have an Instagram account; (ii) follow Sponsor on Instagram (@IMAX.movies); (iii) have an internet connection; (iv) be considered a member in good standing with Instagram, LLC, as determined by Instagram, LLC in its sole discretion; and (v) follow the instructions in any call to action provided in any Instagram post by Sponsor that indicates there is a chance to enter to win Prize(s), including typing exactly any unique term called for in Sponsor’s update calling for entries. Sponsor, at its sole discretion, may accept a technically incorrect unique term. Entrant’s entry must be a reply to the specific post calling out the Sweepstakes on Sponsor’s Instagram account (i.e., “@IMAX.movies”). If Entrant’s Instagram account is set to “protected mode” or “private,” Entrant’s entry may not be visible to Sponsor and may not be received by Sponsor. Any replies that do not appear as a comment to the specific post calling out the Sweepstakes on Sponsor’s Instagram account will not be entered into the Sweepstakes.
Only one (1) entry per person will be accepted. Subsequent attempts made by the same individual to submit multiple entries by using multiple Instagram accounts or otherwise may be disqualified. Entries generated by a script, computer programs, macro, programmed, robotic, or other automated means will be disqualified. Entries that are incomplete, illegible, corrupted, false, lost, late, or misdirected, deceptive, profane, or otherwise not in compliance with the Official Rules may be disqualified from the Sweepstakes at Sponsor's sole and absolute discretion. As a condition of entering the Sweepstakes, each Entrant (or if the Entrant is a minor, said Entrant’s parent or legal guardian) gives consent for Sponsor to obtain and deliver his or her name, address, and other information to third parties for the purpose of administering this Sweepstakes and complying with applicable laws, regulations, and rules. In the event of a dispute over the identity of an Entrant, an entry will be deemed submitted by the authorized account holder of the e-mail address associated with the Instagram account of the entry, which the Entrant will have the obligation to establish. The “authorized account holder” is defined as the person assigned to an e-mail address by an Internet access provider, online service provider, and/or other organization responsible for assigning e-mail addresses. With respect to any winning entry, the winner may be required to provide Sponsor with proof that the person is the registered Instagram account holder and the owner of the e-mail address associated with the winning entry. No third-party entry or entry through a Sweepstakes service is permitted. All materials submitted become the property of Sponsor and will not be returned. In the event a dispute regarding the identity of the individual who actually submitted an entry cannot be resolved to Sponsor's satisfaction, the affected entry will be deemed ineligible. Illegible and/or incomplete entries and entries submitted by Entrants who do not meet the eligibility requirements (including all requirements with respect to age and residence) are void.
Only eligible entries actually received in compliance with the Sweepstakes period, will be included in the drawing for prizes. For purposes of these Official Rules, "receipt" of an online entry occurs when Sponsor’s servers record the entry information upon Entrant’s clicking on the “Submit” button or when the Sponsor receives the Entrant’s entry form at the address above. Any automated computer receipt (such as a "thank you" message or one confirming delivery of entry) does not constitute proof of actual receipt by Sponsor of an entry for purposes of these Official Rules. No automatic, programmed, robotic or similar means of entry are permitted and Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any individual using such a method. Canadian residents should refer to Section 6 below about the need to correctly answer a skill-testing question before being declared a winner.
NOTE ABOUT MOBILE: If Entrant opts to receive Sponsor's Instagram updates via Entrant’s wireless mobile device (which may only be available via participating wireless carriers and is not required to enter), data charges may apply for data sent or received from Entrant’s handset according to the terms and conditions of Entrant’s service agreement with Entrant’s wireless carrier. Other charges may apply (such as normal airtime, data charges, and carrier charges) and may appear on Entrant’s mobile phone bill or be deducted from Entrant’s prepaid account balance. Wireless carriers' rate plans or data plans may vary, and Entrant should contact Entrant’s wireless carrier for more information on messaging rate plans and charges relating to Entrant’s participation in this Sweepstakes. Participation in this Sweepstakes by mobile phone means that Entrant understands that Entrant may receive additional data from Sponsor relating to this Sweepstakes, including to notify Entrant if Entrant is a potential winner in this Sweepstakes, which will be subject to the charges pursuant to Entrant’s carrier's rate plan. Use of Instagram may not be available from all mobile phone service carriers and handset models. Cell phone service may not be available in all areas. Entrant should check Entrant’s phone's capabilities for specific instructions.
NOTE ABOUT “PRIVATE” OR “PROTECTED MODE”: Sponsor may not receive entries from Instagram users with “protected” or “private” updates (i.e., user has set their account so that only people the user has approved can view their updates) due to the way Instagram operates its service.

6. SELECTION OF WINNERS: The Sweepstakes winners will be determined by checking the list of Entrants who posted on Instagram according to the call to action for the Sweepstakes. Sponsor is not responsible for changes to the Instagram “Reply” function that may interfere with the Sweepstakes or ability of Entrant to timely enter. Potential winners of the Sweepstakes will be selected at random from among all qualified entries in the @IMAX “Mention” folder. The drawing date for the Sweepstakes is on January 5, 2018. Potential winners will be selected on January 5, 2018 at or about 11: 00 AM PDT. The potential winners will be contacted, within 24 hours of when the potential winners are selected, using the direct message feature on Instagram for the user account that posted the responsive update if the winner is a follower of @IMAX.movies.
If the potential winner is not a follower of @IMAX.movies, then the potential winner will be disqualified. All entries must follow Sponsor’s Instagram account (@IMAX.movies). However, this is only for purposes of facilitating eligibility verification and prize fulfillment communication and may be discontinued following that process. It is Entrant’s responsibility to timely set Entrant’s account settings to accept contacts by Sponsor and to timely check Entrant’s account for such messages. Sponsor is not responsible for any failure of delivery of notice attempting to use such methods. The potential winner (and his or her parents or legal guardians if under the age of majority) may be required to submit an Affidavit of Eligibility / Release of Liability / Prize Acceptance Form (collectively, the "Affidavit") within five (5) business days of attempted notification, or if the potential winner is a Canadian resident, a Declaration of Compliance or Conformation of Eligibility and Release, within five (5) business days of Notification attempt. If the notification, Prize or Affidavit is returned to Sponsor as undeliverable; is lost, rejected or faulty; or if Sponsor does not receive a response from any potential winner within three (3) business days of attempted notification, such winner may be disqualified and the Prize will be awarded to an alternate potential winner. Non-compliance may result in disqualification and award of the Prize to an alternate winner. If any potential winner is found to be ineligible, or if he or she has not complied with these Official Rules or declines a Prize for any reason prior to award, such potential winner may be disqualified and an alternate potential winner may be selected. If, for any reason, more bona fide winners come forward seeking to claim Prizes in excess of the number of each type of Prize set forth in these Official Rules, the winners, or remaining winners, as the case may be, of the advertised number of Prize(s) available may be selected in a random drawing from among all persons making purportedly valid claims for such Prize(s). Inclusion in such drawing shall be each Entrant’s sole and exclusive remedy under such circumstances. Any and all taxes are the sole responsibility of the winner. Any potential winner who is a resident of Canada must correctly answer a mathematical skill testing question in order to claim any Prize.
