1. When to Enter: You may enter the WUBE B-105’s Instagram Sweepstakes (“Sweepstakes”) during the dates and times set forth on the specific post on Instagram (“Sweepstakes Period”).
2. How to Enter: To enter, visit the WUBE B-105 Instagram page (“Website”) during each Sweepstakes Period, and follow the instructions on the applicable Sweepstakes post (the “Post”) by performing one or more of the following actions as specified in the Post (each, an “Action”): commenting on the Post by answering the question posted in the Post, by following the Instagram page, by liking the Post, and/or by tagging a friend/friends (as specified in the Post) in the comments of the Post. Once you follow the instructions, you will receive one (1) automatic entry into the Random Drawing. All Actions must be posted by the deadline defined in the applicable Sweepstakes Post to be entered into the Random Drawing. Limit: one (1) entry per person allowed in the applicable Sweepstakes Post. Anyone attempting to get more than one (1) entry may be disqualified from the entire Sweepstakes at Sponsor’s sole discretion. These Sweepstakes are not sponsored, endorsed, administered by or associated with Instagram. By entering, you are providing your information to Sponsor and not to Instagram.
PLEASE NOTE: It is solely entrant’s burden to take any steps necessary to adjust their Instagram account settings so that messages can be sent to entrant by Sponsor. An entrant’s non-receipt of a message from Sponsor for any reason, including for failure on behalf of entrant to adjust Instagram account settings, shall be entrant’s, and not Sponsor’s, fault. Similarly, Sponsor shall not be held liable if they are not able to view an entrant’s entry for any reason. By entering this Sweepstakes, each entrant agrees that the Sponsor has the right to contact the entrant by direct message via entrant’s Instagram.
3. Random Drawing: A random drawing will be conducted on or about the day following the end date as specified in the applicable Sweepstakes Post, from among all eligible entries received for that Post. Decisions of judges are final and binding. Odds of winning depend on the number of entries received in the applicable Sweepstakes Post. Administrator will conduct the random drawings. Winners will be notified by direct message through Instagram on or about the date of the drawing. Administrator will make up to 2 attempts to contact the winner. If the winner cannot be contacted after 2 attempts, that potential winner will forfeit the prize, and the prize may be awarded to an alternate winner, time permitting.
4. Claiming Your Prize: Upon winner verification, as a condition of being named an official winner, each potential winner must claim his/her prize in person at B-105 Studios located at 4800 Kennedy Avenue, Cincinnati, Ohio 45209, during normal business hours (Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.) within ten (10) business days of the day he or she wins to verify that he/she is the qualified winner and may be required to sign a Publicity and Liability Release (“Release”) upon (and as a condition of) picking up the Prize. Failure to comply with this deadline shall be deemed to be the winner’s forfeiture of his or her right to claim the Prize. The winner must prove he or she is a qualified winner by presenting acceptable identification (e.g., state driver’s license; state issued identification card; valid passport with address verification; or birth certificate with social security card and photo identification and address verification). If a winner cannot prove he or she is a qualified winner, the prize will not be awarded. All unclaimed prizes remain the property of Sponsor.
5. Prizes & Approximate Retail Values (“ARVs”): The specific prizes (including how many will be given away) and the approximate retail value of each prize to be given away is as specifically described on the applicable Sweepstakes Post description details. No prize transfer or cash substitutes allowed except at Sponsor’s sole discretion due to prize unavailability or for any reason and only then for prize of equal or greater value. Each prize winner is responsible for all applicable federal, state and local taxes. Prize consists of only those items specifically listed as part of the prize. Sponsor may provide the winner with an IRS Form 1099 reflecting their portion of the prize, or such other governmental tax forms that may be necessary, as determined in the sole discretion of Sponsor.

Only the type and quantity of prizes described in these Official Rules will be awarded. The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these rules shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision. In the event that any provision is determined to be invalid or otherwise unenforceable or illegal, these rules shall otherwise remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with their terms as if the invalid or illegal provision were not contained herein. Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.
