5. Entry Submission Requirements

As stated above, Entries must be submitted via Instagram, Twitter or Facebook specifically using hashtag “#CapcomArtworkAugust”.

Entries which are not compliant with these Competition Rules will be rejected. If there is any omission or false statement, Capcom may withdraw its selection of the Entry.

6. Competition Winner

Seven (7) Grand Prize Winners and Four (4) Second Prize Winners will be selected by a member of Capcom staff randomly chosen among all eligible Entries received during the Competition period. Capcom may disqualify any Entry, even after winning the Prize, where it determines that the Entry:

  1. infringes intellectual property rights or any other rights of a third party without express consent;
  2. offends against public order or decency;
  3. does not comply with these Competition Rules; or
  4. is inappropriate to the Competition for any other reason as determined in Capcom’s sole discretion.

7. Winner Notification

The winner will be selected on or around September 6, 2019 and will notified via Direct Message from a Capcom Online Store representative, to the Social Media account from which the respective Entry was submitted and will be required to sign and return an Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability Release and, except where prohibited by law, a Publicity Release Form (together, a "Release") within 48 hours of receipt. Failure to timely return the signed Release or refusal to sign the Release will result in the prize being forfeited and awarded to an alternate winner selected by random drawing. If a prize notification is returned or deemed undeliverable, a prize is refused, or the potential winner is disqualified for any reason, an alternate winner may be selected by random drawing. Except where prohibited by law (e.g., Tennessee), acceptance of the prize constitutes permission for Capcom to use the winner’s name, hometown, likeness, statements, and other personally identifiable information for promotional, advertising and marketing purposes in any media throughout the world without any additional prize, incentive, consideration, consent or review, and upon request, winner will provide to Capcom written consent to such use. The odds of winning drawing depend upon the number of eligible Entries received during the Sweepstakes Period.
