Art Impact international, Inc.
Contest  Rules

 

Terms for Contests.

Entrant’s participation in any Contest is subject to and governed by the official rules set forth here, along with any additional guidelines (“Additional Terms”) outlined in the specific Contest listed on artimpactinternational.org or elsewhere (the “Specific Contest”). If there is a conflict between these official rules and the Additional Terms outlined in the Specific Contest, the Additional Terms will govern. 


1.1 Eligibility. 

Unless otherwise noted in the Additional Terms outlined in the Specific Contest, Art Impact™ International Contests are open to legally registered businesses of the District of Columbia, Maryland
and Virginia whose owners are the age of majority in their jurisdiction (“Entrants”). Contest supervisors and members of their immediate families are not eligible to participate or win. Contests are subject to all applicable federal, state, and local laws, rules and regulations. Void where prohibited. 


1.2 Social Media Disclosure. 

All Contests follow the guidelines of the social media channel on which the Contest is promoted. Contests are in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with the social media channel Entrants use to learn about or enter the Contest. Entrants are providing their information to Art Impact™ International—and not to the social media channel—during the entry process. The information Entrants provide will be used for administering the Specific Contest and/or for marketing purposes in accordance with these Terms of Use and with Art Impact™ International’s privacy policy


1.3 No purchase necessary to enter or win a contest offered by Art Impact™ International. 

Entrants should review the Additional Terms for information regarding whether
purchase is necessary for a Specific Contest, but contests will always have a free method of entry. 


1.4 Sponsor. 

Unless otherwise outlined in the Additional Terms for the Specific Contest, the Sponsor of the Contest is Art Impact™ International, Inc., 1638 R Street, NW,  Suite 210, Washington, D.C., 20009 (“Sponsor” or “Art Impact™ International”). 


1.5 Contest Period. 

The Contest begins and ends
on the time and date outlined in the Additional Terms outlined in the Specific Contest, according to Sponsor’s internal time clock and time zone. All times for the events are listed in the local time where the event is located, whether Eastern Daylight or Eastern Standard Time. 


1.6 Only one entry per business per Contest. 

Unless otherwise noted in the Additional Terms outlined in the Specific Contest, or otherwise herein, Entrant may only enter one time. Multiple entries for Contests will not increase Entrant’s chances of winning (Entrant will still only receive one entry). If Entrant enters more than once in a Contest, only Entrant’s last eligible entry will be counted. 

Entrant may enter as many current Contests as Entrant is otherwise qualified to enter. In any given year, if Entrant’s winnings exceed US$600, Entrant’s winnings may be considered a taxable event by the IRS and Art Impact International may be required to issue Entrant a tax form 1099.

 

How to Enter.
 

In some cases, Entrant may be asked to enter through a social media channel. In that case, Entrant must have an account on that social media channel. All social media channels Art Impact International uses to launch Contests are free to join and Art Impact™ International makes commercially reasonable efforts to make sure Contests follow the guidelines set forth by the social media channel for promotions of that nature. In all cases where Entrant is required to place hashtags on the entry, all hashtags must be included or Entrant’s entry will not be eligible for the Specific Contest. In the event any Contest requires Entrant to upload a photograph of Entrant or show an image of Entrant, Entrant may upload any image that includes the requisite hashtags (so that Sponsor can find it), and Entrant will be entered in the Contest.

2.7 Surprise and Delight Promotions. 

From time to time, Art Impact™ International gives gifts to people attending events, posting fun images, and just generally having a good time using the platform. There is no rhyme or reason for it, but an Art Impact™ International team member might reach out to you if your post is public and give you something fun as a gift. Surprise and Delight gifts are for entertainment purposes as our way of recognizing your spirit. Those selected to receive Surprise and Delight gifts need not accept them. However, for those who accept Surprise and Delight gifts, the conditions outlined in section 3.6 of these official rules will apply.
