AAA PET TRAVEL PHOTO CONTEST

OFFICIAL RULES

NO PURCHASE IS NECESSARY TO ENTER THE CONTEST OR CLAIM THE PRIZE

  1. Contest: Many people take road trips with their pets throughout the year and American Automobile Association ("AAA") wants to hear from them so it is sponsoring a photo contest with opportunities to win a $100 pet store gift card for the quarter January 17, 2020 through March 25,2020.

  2. How to Enter: The Contest begins at 12:00:01 a.m. ET on January 17, 2020 and ends at 11:59:59 p.m. ET on March 25, 2020 (“Contest Period”). To enter, visit aaa.com/PetTravel ("Website"), go to the Photo Contest entry link, and follow the online instructions to submit a digital photo of your pet and complete the entry process. The AAA computer is the official time clock for the Contest. Entries that meet the following requirements will be posted by AAA, at AAA's discretion, on its Facebook page, where voting will take place:

    1. Entrant must be the person who took, and has full rights to, the photo.

    2. Entrant has the full written consent from all persons or copyright owners of other works (such as paintings and statutes) appearing in the photo for full use of the photo, including, but not limited to, use and publishing in this Contest and the other uses stated herein.

    3. Minor digital enhancement for cropping, red-eye removal, filters and corrections functions are permitted, but images that AAA, in its sole discretion, determines to be significantly altered will be disqualified.

    4. Photo must feature at least one pet and convey a travel theme.

    5. Pet safety must at all times be considered. For example, AAA will not accept photos of pets in unsafe conditions, such as a pet with its head hanging out of the window of a moving vehicle.

    6. Borders or frames are not permitted around the image and a watermark, signature, date or copyright notice are not permitted on the image.

    7. Only one photo may be entered per household during the Contest Period. Entries will be considered for the quarter in which they are posted, by AAA at its discretion.

    8. Entrant's photo will be posted on Facebook and will be identified only by the name, gender, breed of the pet in the photo and the location where the photo was taken. Photos must adhere to the Facebook Promotion Guides.

    9. Only one prize may be won by any entrant.

Photos that (a) contain sexually explicit, nude, obscene, violent or other objectionable or inappropriate content, as determined by AAA in its sole discretion, (b) have won a photo contest of any kind, or (c) violate or infringe upon another person's rights, will not be considered.

  1. Eligibility:

    1. Contest is open to U.S. residents of legal age in the jurisdiction in which they reside. Employees (and their immediate family members) of AAA and its Clubs are not eligible to enter.

    2. Winner retains winner's rights to the winning photo but must sign a Release acknowledging the Rules, affirming eligibility and granting AAA, AAA Clubs, and their affiliates, subsidiaries and agents, a royalty-free, worldwide, perpetual non-exclusive license to print, display, distribute, reproduce, adapt and/or modify the photo in any way and create derivative works of the photo, in whole or in part, in any media now existing or subsequently developed, for any AAA purpose, including but not limited to, promotion of AAA's pet travel content, use on AAA's web sites, exhibition, use in any media and commercial products.

  2. Winner Selection: Within 10 days after the end of each quarter during the Contest Period a winner will be selected from entries received during the quarter just ended. The winner each quarter will be determined by popular vote. Winning by popular vote means the photo with the most number of reactions (like, love, laugh, surprised, sad, angry) received on Facebook. All reactions, whether positive or negative, will be counted. In the event of a tie in the popular vote, a panel of judges chosen by AAA from its employees and others will choose the winner based on the following criteria: impact, lighting, composition and effectively conveying the joy of traveling with a pet on vacation. The decisions of the judges are final. Each winner will be notified by AAA, via email on winner’s entry, approximately 10 days after the end of the quarter during the Contest Period.

    Each winner will be required to execute and return (and winning is conditioned upon a winner executing and returning) to AAA, within ten (10) business days an Affidavit of Eligibility, Liability and Publicity Release, and executed consents of each person appearing in the winning photo or, if a minor, his or her parent or legal guardian.

  3. Prizes: Each winner's photo will be featured on the AAA.com/PetTravel homepage. In addition, each winner will receive a $100.00 gift card from an established retail pet supply outlet. Gift card cannot be redeemed for cash, but may be transferred. Total retail value of all prizes is $500.

  4. Facebook Disclaimer: This Contest is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with, Facebook, and by entering this Contest, entrant acknowledges that Facebook is not liable for anything related to the conduct or administration of this Contest.

  5. General Rules:
