Potential winners will be required to respond to winner notification within four (4) weeks and must execute an agreement with Sponsor’s payment vendor (and must provide all information requested by vendor) to receive the prize payment. Failure to respond to winner notification by Sponsor within the stated timeframe or complete required paperwork may result in forfeiture of the prize in Sponsor’s sole discretion.

The prizes, if legitimately claimed, will be awarded. Sponsor will not be obligated to pursue more than three (3) alternate winners (time permitting) for the prize for any reason, in which case that prize may go unawarded. All prize and fulfillment details not specifically stated in these Official Rules will be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. All taxes (federal, state, and local, if any) are the sole responsibility of the winner.
Sponsor’s decisions will be final in all matters relating to this Contest, including interpretation of these Terms. By participating in the Contest (except where prohibited by law), each Entrant grants the Sponsor the irrevocable, sublicensable, absolute right and permission to use, publish, post or display their name, social media handles, photograph, likeness, voice, biographical and education information, any quotes attributable to them, and any other indicia of persona, (regardless of whether altered, changed, modified, edited, used alone, or used with other material in the Sponsor’s sole discretion) for advertising, trade, promotional and publicity purposes without further obligation or compensation of any kind to them, anywhere, in any medium now known or hereafter discovered or devised (including, without limitation, on the Internet), world-wide, without any limitation of time, and without notice, review, or approval and each Entrant releases Sponsor from any and all liability related thereto. Entrant further grants the Sponsor the permission to feature and/promote the Entrant’s Reels on the Born on Instagram website and Instagram platform (regardless of whether altered, changed, modified, edited, used alone, or used with other material in the Sponsor’ sole discretion). Nothing contained in these Terms obligates Sponsor to make use of any of the rights granted in these Terms and Entrants waive any right to inspect or approve any such use.
Entrants agree to not damage or cause interruption of the Contest and/or prevent others from participating in the Contest. Instagram reserves the right to restrict or void participation from any IP address, email address or domain, device, or other designator or identifiable source if any fraudulent or harmful participation is suspected, as determined by Instagram in its sole discretion. Instagram further reserves the right to disqualify any Entrant who Instagram believes has attempted to tamper with or impair the administration, security, fairness, or proper play of this Contest. ANY ATTEMPT TO DAMAGE ANY ONLINE SERVICE OR WEBSITE OR UNDERMINE THE LEGITIMATE OPERATION OF THE CONTEST MAY VIOLATE CRIMINAL AND CIVIL LAWS. IF SUCH AN ATTEMPT IS MADE, INSTAGRAM MAY DISQUALIFY ANY ENTRANT MAKING SUCH ATTEMPT AND MAY SEEK DAMAGES TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
If Instagram determines at any time in its sole discretion that a winner is disqualified, ineligible, or in violation of these Terms, Instagram reserves the right in its sole discretion to select an alternate winner, even if the disqualified potential winner’s name may have been shown or announced. If the Contest is not capable of running as planned for any reason, Instagram reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to cancel, modify or suspend the Contest.
In the event there is an alleged or actual ambiguity, discrepancy, or inconsistency between disclosures or other statements contained in any Contest-related materials and these Terms (including any alleged discrepancy or inconsistency within these Terms), it will be resolved by Instagram in Instagram’s sole discretion. Entrants waive any right to claim ambiguity in the Contest or these Terms. Instagram’s failure to or decision not to enforce any provision in these Terms will not constitute a waiver of that or any other provision. The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these Terms will not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision. In the event that any provision is determined to be invalid or otherwise unenforceable or illegal, these Terms will otherwise remain in effect and will be construed in accordance with their Terms as if the invalid or illegal provision were not contained in these Terms.
