General Contest Rules
General Contest Rules Applicable to all Visit Tucson Contests:
All contest entries become the property of Visit Tucson. Entrants are encouraged to enter a contest only once unless otherwise specified. In the case of multiple entries by the same person, all but one entry may be withdrawn.
Contests with prizes involving travel outside the United States are open only to citizens holding a valid United States Passport whose physical condition permits the entrant to safely travel to the destination. Visit Tucson reserves the right to require proof that these entry requirements have been satisfied.
Each entrant agrees that in the event he or she wins a contest, Visit Tucson shall have the right, without further compensation, to publicize and/or broadcast his or her name, voice, likeness, the city of residence and the fact that he or she won the contest. Contest winners agree that they may be contacted by email.
Entrants are responsible for the payment of any and all taxes applicable to prizes and the award of prizes. Visit Tucson is required to report winnings exceeding $600 per year (in the aggregate) to the Internal Revenue Service and will provide winners falling within this requirement with an IRS Form 1099 after the close of the calendar year in which the prize(s) were won. Winners agree to provide Visit Tucson with their social security number and such other information as may be required by Visit Tucson to comply with applicable laws. Winners agree to complete and sign Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability/Publicity Release and IRS Form W-9 as requested from Sponsor.
Entrants agree to release and hold harmless Visit Tucson and its sponsors and affiliates, agents and employees, from any and all damages, liabilities or claims for injury or damage of any kind that might arise in connection with a contest, a prize, or the award of a prize. Visit Tucson reserves the right to condition the final award of any prize on the execution of a legally enforceable release of claims and indemnity agreement. Winner(s) will be notified by e-mail and phone and given seven days to accept (after seven days, a new winner will be chosen). Blackout dates and other restrictions may apply.
Visit Tucson reserves the right and sole discretion to substitute another prize of equal or greater value for the prize originally offered if the original contest prize is or becomes unavailable. Visit Tucson is not liable if a concert or event with which a prize is associated is canceled due to circumstances beyond Visit Tucson's control. Unless impossible or impractical, prizes or prize certificates will be mailed to the winner within 60 days after the winner is selected and has claimed the prize.
Visit Tucson reserves the right to disqualify any entrant or winner who does not adhere to the rules applicable to the contest in which he or she entered or who gains an unfair advantage through fraud or unsportsmanlike conduct in participating in the contest.
Your cell phone carrier’s standard message and data rates may apply to text messaging contests. Text messaging is not available in all areas, and on all carriers, within the United States. Contact your cell phone carrier for specific details.
In the event any contest specific rules conflict with these general rules, the contest specific rules shall control. On occasion, circumstances may require the rules of a contest to be modified. Changes to contest rules will be posted on Visit Tucson's website. Visit Tucson reserves the right to interpret and apply all rules applicable to its contests and its interpretation and application shall be final.
