Winning a prize is contingent upon being compliant with these Official Rules and fulfilling all other requirements set forth herein.
Sweepstakes Entry Period: The Sweepstakes entry period begins on October 24th, 2021 at 18:00PM PST and ends on November 2nd, 2021 at 11:49PM PST (“Sweepstakes Entry Period”). Entries that are submitted before or after the Sweepstakes Entry Period will not be eligible and will be disqualified.

How to Enter: Follow both @UltimateEarsPro (https://www.instagram.com/ultimateearspro/) and @GruvGear (https://www.instagram.com/gruvgear/) on Instagram and tag 3 friends in the comments of the competition post. The use of an agency or any automated system to enter is strictly prohibited, and Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any entries received through such methods, as determined by Sponsor, in its sole discretion. All entries received will not be acknowledged or returned. Sponsor, at its sole discretion, shall determine whether entries are valid and submitted during the Sweepstakes Entry Period. Entrant bears all costs of participating in this Sweepstakes including, but not limited to, any internet connection fees. Only one entry allowed per entrant.
Winner Selection: Sponsor will randomly select one (1) winner seventy-two (72) hours after the Sweepstakes Entry Period. Odds of winning in the drawing depend on the number eligible entries received. Sponsor will attempt to notify the potential winners via Instagram direct message or email within 72 hours of winner selection. If a potential winner cannot be contacted within 72 hours after the date of the first attempt to contact him/her, Sponsor may, at its sole discretion, select an alternate potential winner in his/her place at random from the remaining eligible entries.
Requirements of potential winner(s): Except where prohibited, a potential winner may be required to complete and return an affidavit of eligibility and liability/publicity release. If a potential winner is a minor, his/her parent or legal guardian will be required to sign the documents on his/her behalf and fulfill any other requirements imposed on potential winners set forth herein. If a potential winner fails to sign and return these documents within the required time period, or if Sponsor attempts to deliver the prize and it is returned as undeliverable, the potential winner is deemed to have forfeited the prize and an alternate potential winner may be selected in his/her place in a random drawing of all remaining eligible entries received. Potential winners must continue to comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules and winning is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements. In the event a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the applicable prize to an alternate winner by random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries. Only three (3) alternate drawings will be held, after which the prize will remain un-awarded. Prizes will be fulfilled approximately 2-4 weeks after the conclusion of the prize drawing.
