  1. Winner Selection and Notification.  The potential winners of the Sweepstakes will be selected at random by Sponsor or a representative selected by Sponsor, whose decisions are final in all matters relating to this Sweepstakes, from among all qualified eligible Entries from the list of Entrants who posted on Instagram according to the call to action for the Sweepstakes during the Entry Period. Qualifying eligible Entries are those that comply with these Official Rules and Sponsor’s call-to-action (where applicable). Sponsor is not responsible for changes to any Instagram function that may interfere with the Sweepstakes or ability of Entrant to timely enter. The drawing date for the Sweepstakes is on April 22, 2019 at 11:00 AM PDT in Los Angeles, California. The Winner will be announced on May 6, 2019, at or about 12:00 PM PDT.

 

Each potential winner will be contacted, within 24 hours of the when the potential winners are announced by direct message feature on Instagram for the user account that submitted the Entry.  If a potential winner is not a follower of @IMAX, then he or she will have to either: (i) set their potential winning Instagram account to follow @IMAX (so that Sponsor will be able to send a private direct message via Instagram); or (ii) check in “pending direct message queue” and accept the direct message from @IMAX – both within time stated in the notice of the Sponsor’s submission of a direct message to a potential winner’s Entry or else the Sponsor may disqualify the winner’s Entry.  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 set Entrant’s account settings to accept contacts by Sponsor and to timely check Entrant’s account for such message.

The potential winners may be required to submit a Prize Acceptance Form / Declaration of Compliance/Affidavit of Eligibility or Confirmation of Eligibility and Release of Liability (collectively, the "Required Documents") within five (5) business days of attempted notification. If the notification, or Required Documents are returned to Sponsor as undeliverable, are lost, rejected or faulty or if Sponsor does not receive a response from any potential winner within five (5) 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. Any potential winner who is a resident of Canada must correctly answer a mathematical skill testing question without aid or assistance in order to claim any Prize. Failure to correctly answer the skill-testing question will result in forfeiture of the Prize and the Prize will be awarded to an alternate winner. If, for any reason, a more bona fide winner comes 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 each Winner.
