The Red Bull Riot Fest Sweepstakes (“Sweepstakes”) will begin September 30, 2011 at 9:00 A.M CT and end on October 6, 2011 at 5:00 P.M.CT (“Sweepstakes Period”). All times in the contest refer to Central Time ("CT"). Odds of winning depend upon the number of eligible Entries (defined below) received. Sweepstakes is subject to all federal, state and local laws.

Officers, directors, and employees of Sweepstakes Entities (as defined below), members of these persons' immediate families (spouses and/or parents, children, and siblings, and their spouses, regardless of where they reside), and/or persons living in the same households as these persons (whether or not related thereto) are not eligible to enter or win the Sweepstakes. Sweepstakes Entities, as referenced herein, shall include Sponsors (as defined below) and their respective parent, subsidiary, and affiliate companies, and administrative, advertising, and promotion agencies, and any other entity involved in the development, administration, promotion, or implementation of the Sweepstakes.

HOW TO ENTER: To enter the Sweepstakes, during the Sweepstakes Period go to http://www.twitter.com (the “Twitter Website”), and (1) if you already have a Twitter account, log on using your Twitter user name and password, then become a follower of NBCCHICAGO by searching for "NBCCHICAGO", clicking on the NBCCHICAGO icon and then clicking the "Follow" button; or (2) if you do not already have a Twitter account, create a free Twitter account according to the instructions on the Twitter Website and follow NBCCHICAGO as indicated in (1) above. Please note that you must agree to comply with the Twitter Terms of Use in order to create a Twitter account. Once you become a follower of NBCCHICAGO, you will receive a question in the form of a Tweet from NBCCHICAGO each day of the Sweepstakes Period (each a “Question”). You will then be required to submit a "Tweet" to NBCCHICAGO that includes: (1) your answer to the Question; (2) the Question in its entirety; (3) RT and (4) @NBCCHICAGO (collectively, "Entry"). When submitting an Entry you should include “RT” and “@NBCCHICAGO” in your Tweet or your Entry may not be valid.  All Entries will be deemed one (1) Entry into the Sweepstakes. Your answer does not need to be correct for your Entry to be eligible for the Sweepstakes. Your answer will not increase your chances of winning.

 

All Entries become the property of WMAQ, 454 N Columbus Drive, Chicago, IL 60611 and NBCUniversal Media, LLC, 30 Rockefeller Plaza, New York, NY 10112 (collectively the "Sponsors"), and will not be acknowledged. If any Entry contains material that is violent, pornographic, obscene, illegal, inappropriate, or racially or morally offensive or if any Entry does not comply with these Official Rules or meet Sponsors' standards for any reason, as determined by Sponsors in their sole discretion, such Entry may be rejected as ineligible for consideration and/or deleted from the NBCCHICAGO Twitter page. Entries must comply with all applicable laws, rules, and regulations. Sponsors shall have no obligation to copy, publish, display, or otherwise exploit the Statement.

You may enter one (1) time per person/Twitter account per day during the Sweepstakes Period for a maximum of fourteen (14) Entries per person/Twitter account during the Sweepstakes Period.  Multiple Entries received from any person or Twitter account beyond this limit will void all such additional Entries. For purposes of these Official Rules, a “day” will start at 12:01 A.M. CT and end at 11:59 P.M. CT. Entries  that are incomplete, garbled, corrupted, or unintelligible for any reason, including, but not limited to, computer or network malfunction or congestion, are void and will not be accepted. In case of a dispute over the identity of an entrant, the authorized account holder of the Twitter account used to enter will be deemed to be the entrant. "Authorized account holder" is defined as the person who is assigned to a Twitter account by the Twitter Website. Entry constitutes permission (except where prohibited by law) to use entrant's name, Twitter user 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:   On or about October 7, 2011, two (2) potential winners (“Winners”) will be selected at the end of the Sweepstakes Period in a random drawing by representatives of Sponsors from all eligible Entries received during the Sweepstakes Period. Sponsors will make two (2) attempts to notify potential Winners via direct message to each potential Winner's Twitter account in order to obtain potential Winner's mailing addresses. Potential Winner may be required to execute and return an affidavit of eligibility, release of liability, and, except where prohibited, publicity release (collectively, “Sweepstakes Documents”) within three (3) days of such notification. Noncompliance within this time period will result in disqualification, and, at Sponsors' sole discretion an alternate potential Winner may be selected from among the remaining eligible Entries. If a potential Winner cannot be reached, is found to be ineligible, cannot or does not comply with these Official Rules, or if prize 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 from the remaining eligible Entries.

 

PRIZE: There will be two (2) prizes (“Prizes”) awarded; one (1) Prize will be awarded to each Winner.

Estimated Retail Value (“ERV”) of each Prize is forty-four dollars ($44). ERV of all Prizes is one hundred and seventy six dollars ($176). Sponsors will determine all Prize details in their sole discretion. Sponsors reserve the right to substitute a similar Prize (or Prize element) of comparable or greater value at their sole discretion. 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 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 potential Winner may be selected from the remaining eligible Entries received during the Sweepstakes Period 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 Prize due to reasons beyond Sponsors’ control, and are not responsible or liable for any expenses incurred as a consequence thereof. Date and/or time and/or location of Event are subject to change.
