1. These are the Official Rules for the Winter Wonderland Contest (the "Contest") sponsored by Sears Holdings Management Corporation ("Sponsor"). By entering the Contest, you agree to be bound by the Official Rules and the decisions of Sponsor, which are final and binding. The Contest begins on December 1, 2010 3:00 PM PST and ends on December 31, 2010 11:59 PM PST (“Contest Period”).
  2. Entrants must be 18 years of age or older.
  3. To enter, you need to log onto www.chictopia.com. If you do not already have a Chictopia.com personal profile (“Profile”), you will need to create one. Once your Profile has been set up, you need to upload a Qualifying Photo (as defined below) onto the Winter Wonderland contest at www.chictopia.com (“Webpage”). A photo will be a “Qualifying Photo” if it has been tagged with "Winter Wonderland", the designated style tag specified for this contest, as the style from the Style dropdown menu during upload. This is required of users wishing to enter the contest. Photos tagged with this style will appear on the contest page seen here: http://www.chictopia.com/contest/Winter-Wonderland. The entry must also include a description of the Qualifying Photo in 500 words or less and any additional content requirements for the Contest as described by Sponsor. Entries not containing Qualifying Photos will be discounted from the Contest.
  4. Entries are limited to one per Profile. Late or corrupt entries and entries that contain obscene, defamatory or otherwise inappropriate content as deemed by Chictopia and the Sponsor will not be accepted. No responsibility can be accepted for Entries not submitted or not received due to a technical default. Entries must not be submitted through agencies or third parties. In the event of a dispute in connection with the identity of the individual who submitted an Entry, the Entry will be deemed to have been submitted by the authorized account holder of the Profile. The authorized account holder is deemed to be the natural person who is assigned to a Profile by Chictopia.
  5. All Qualifying Photos submitted must be of the authorized account holder – that is the person whose email is registered to the account - and either (a) your own work or (b) be submitted with the consent of their creator. Qualifying Photos must not have won a prize in any other similar Contest. It is your responsibility to ensure that any Qualifying Photos submitted do not infringe the intellectual property rights or other rights of any third party or any laws.
  6. Sponsor reserves the right to choose the winners in its absolute discretion. Winner will be chosen by the Sponsor based on style(40%), quality of the write up in 500 words or less(30%), and the number of times the photo has been added as favorite on Chictopia(30%). The winners will be chosen based on how accurately each entry adheres to the guidelines and entry criteria laid out by the Sponsor.
