Contest rules

At Photofocus, we love partnering with companies to offer you some one-of-a-kind giveaways! Before you enter, we recommend you read the contest rules below. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

Eligibility

Unless otherwise noted, you must be at least 18 years of age to enter contests.

No purchase is ever required to enter any Photofocus giveaway or contest.

Our contests are generally open to anyone who is at least 18 years of age and who does not reside in an area where such contests are void by law.

Employees (or their immediate families) of RHED Pixel, Richard Harrington, Photofocus or any subsidiary are not eligible to win our contests or giveaways. However, since all the Photofocus staff have a large social and business network of friends, followers and associates, it is always possible that the winner may be someone personally known to us. But it will never be one of our employees or family members.

Unless otherwise noted, the termination date for eligibility is the final day of each giveaway at Noon ET.

There may be only one prize winner per household every 120 days.

All Photofocus contests and giveaways are subject to all federal, state, provincial and local laws and void where prohibited. It is your responsibility to refrain from entry if our contests or giveaways are illegal in your jurisdiction. If you are declared a winner but contests and giveaways like these are illegal in your jurisdiction, your prize will be forfeited and given to a runner-up or rolled into a future contest.

Legal notes

Our contest partners are clearly listed on each official contest page. The partners’ respective mailing addresses are available on their websites.

The entry procedures for each contest are announced individually on Photofocus.com.

Photofocus will not verify receipt of entries. Incomplete entries are void. Photofocus is not responsible for entries that are lost, late, misdirected, incomplete, incomprehensible, illegible, damaged, undeliverable or delayeed.

All prize information including prize value is listed with each contest announcement. In each contest or giveaway, we reserve the right to substitute a prize of equal or greater value in the event that the original promised prize becomes unavailable. Some prizes may be awarded via gift certificate.

Photofocus is not responsible for: (1) typographical errors in any materials relating to the Contest; (2) lost, misdirected, illegible, incomplete, or delayed entries; (3) cancellations, postponements, or delays; (4) Acts of God, war, terrorism, government regulation, disaster, fire, strikes, civil disorder, or other similar causes beyond the control of Photofocus, their affiliated, parent, and subsidiary companies, advertising and promotional agencies and their immediate assigns, making it inadvisable, illegal, impossible, or impractical to continue the Contest or to perform under these Rules. Photofocus makes no warranty, guarantee, or representation of any kind concerning any prize, and Photofocus specifically DISCLAIM ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, WARRANTY OF FITNESS, AND ANY OTHER IMPLIED WARRANTY.

The odds of winning will depend on the number of entries. Unless otherwise noted, all contests and giveaway prizes are awarded via random drawing.

Photofocus is not responsible for issues regarding Internet access, bounced email or any other technical malfunction beyond its immediate control.

Winner responsibilities

The winner does not have to be present for the drawing unless otherwise noted.

Winners automatically grant the use of their name and likeness in the promotion of this and other Photofocus contests.

For a list of winners for each contest, send a self-addressed, stamped envelope (SASE) within 30 days of the contest end date to:

Winners are responsible for applicable state or federal taxes (winner must pay any taxes due directly to a government entity).

Any prize not claimed within 90 days of the announced winner shall be forfeited. No exceptions.

While the contests are generally open to residents of any country, prizes can only be shipped to an address inside the U.S. Foreign winners must make arrangements to receive prizes via a U.S. address. Photofocus is not liable for any customs duties or delays. Proof of shipment to the winner’s address shall end any obligation to deliver any prize under these rules.
