There is a limit of (1) one Entry per person (and per TikTok Account) during the Contest Period (defined below). Multiple entries received from any person or Account during the Contest Period will be void (regardless of whether one person has more than (1) one Account, or if more than one person uses the same Account) and that Participant may be disqualified at Sponsor’s sole discretion. If your TikTok Account is set to “private,” your post will not be visible to Sponsor and, therefore, will not be received by Sponsor, resulting in your failure to enter the Contest. Entries generated by script, artificial intelligence, macro or other automated means are void. Sponsor expressly reserves the right to disqualify any entries that it believes in good faith are generated by an automated program, artificial intelligence, or via scripts. Non-winning entries received during the Contest Period will not be entered into subsequent promotions or drawings.

Multiple Participants are not permitted to share the same Account. In the event of a dispute as to any Entry, the authorized account holder of the Account will be deemed to be the Participant. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person who is assigned to the Account. The potential “Winner” (as defined below) may be required to show proof of being the authorized Account holder. If the identity of the person submitting an Entry cannot be resolved to Sponsor’s satisfaction, the affected Entry may be deemed ineligible. Entries by any method other than set forth above are void.

Entries must not be sent through agencies or third parties.

Entries must be received during the Contest Period to be eligible. No substitutions of new versions of any Entry will be accepted under any circumstances once the original Entry is submitted for consideration.
- Selection of the Winner:

- 50% of total score: [Originality and creativity of the video submitted]
Any dispute regarding the Participant’s Total Score will be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion.
Sponsor will select the one (1) eligible Participant with the highest Total Score to be the potential winner (the “Winner”) of the Prize (defined below). In the case of a tie for the highest Total Score, the Participant in the tie with the highest creativity score shall win.
The odds of winning the Prize depend on how your Entry compares to the other Entries in light of the judging criteria and the other rules of the Contest.
