Entry constitutes permission (except where prohibited by law) to use entrant’s name, city, state, likeness, image, and/or voice for purposes of advertising, promotion, and publicity in any and all media now or hereafter known, throughout the world in perpetuity, without additional compensation, notification, permission, or approval.
WINNER SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION: During each Individual Entry Period (as described in the chart above), one (1) potential winner (“Winner”) will be selected by representatives of Sponsors from all eligible Entries received during each Individual Entry Period. The tenth(10th) entrant to call, after being prompted to do so, and have his/her Entry processed by Sponsors’ representatives during each Individual Entry Period (as described above), as determined by Sponsors in their sole discretion, will be selected as a potential Winner. A total of twenty (20) potential Winners will be selected. Sponsors will make two (2) attempts to notify each potential Winner. Potential Winners may be required to execute and return an affidavit of eligibility, release of liability, and except where prohibited, publicity release (collectively, “Sweepstakes Documents”) within six (6) hours of such notification. If the return of such Sweepstakes Documents is required, noncompliance within this time period will result in disqualification, and at Sponsors’ sole discretion, an alternate potential Winner may be selected. If a potential Winner cannot be reached, if he/she is found to be ineligible, if he/she cannot or does not comply with these Official Rules, or if his/her Prize (defined below) or Prize notification is returned as undeliverable, such potential Winner will be disqualified and time permitting, at Sponsors’ sole discretion, an alternate potential Winner may be selected. Limit one (1) Prize per family or household.
PRIZE: There will be twenty (20) prizes (each a “Prize”) awarded, with one (1) Prize to each Winner. Each Prize consists of the following: one (1) pass that can be redeemed for two (2) tickets for Winner and one (1) guest (“Guest”) to a screening of “Despicable Me 2” (the “Event”), scheduled to take place at 7:00 P.M.

Any difference between stated ERV and ARV of Prizes will not be awarded. All details of Prizes will be determined by Sponsors and/or Prize Providers in their sole discretion. Sponsors reserve the right to substitute a similar Prize (or Prize element) of comparable or greater value for any reason at their sole discretion. All taxes and other expenses, costs, or fees associated with the acceptance and/or use of each Prize are the sole responsibility of each Winner. Prizes cannot be transferred by Winners or redeemed for cash and are valid only for the items detailed above, with no substitution of a Prize by a Winner. If a Prize is unclaimed within a reasonable time after notification from Sponsors, as determined by Sponsors in their sole discretion, it will be forfeited, and time permitting, an alternate Winner may be selected at Sponsors’ sole discretion.
Sponsors shall have no responsibility or liability for cancellations, delays, or any other change by any company or person providing any element of Prizes, and are not responsible or liable for any expenses incurred as a consequence thereof. Date and/or time of the Event are subject to change. Event is subject to cancellation. Location of seating, if any, will be determined by Sponsors and/or Prize Providers at their sole discretion and will be subject to availability. If a Winner chooses to attend the Event with no Guest, the remaining elements of his/her Prize shall constitute full satisfaction of Sponsors’ Prize obligation to such Winner and no additional compensation will be awarded. Guests, if any, may be required to execute and return releases of liability and, except where prohibited, publicity releases (collectively, “Guest Documents”), which must be returned with the Sweepstakes Documents, or Guest portion of the Prize will be forfeited.
