By entering, each entrant understands and acknowledges that this Contest is in no way sponsored, endorsed, administered by, or associated with Instagram. Each entrant agrees to adhere to all rules established by Instagram. Any information provided for the Contest is being provided by Sponsor rather than Instagram. Each entrant hereby releases Instagram from all claims, losses, and harms that you may allege or incur relating to this Contest.
Limit one (1) entry per person per day during each Entry Period during the Contest Entry Period. If multiple entries are made by a single person in a single day, only the first entry will be considered. All entries will become the property of Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or returned, and no correspondence will be entered into regarding the status of any entry. Entrants may only use one Instagram account to enter the Contest. Any attempt by any entrant to obtain more than the stated number of entries by using multiple/different Instagram accounts, identities, registrations and logins, or any other methods will be void and your entries and you will be disqualified. Use of any automated system to enter is prohibited and will result in disqualification. Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible, or misdirected entries all of which will be ineligible to win a prize. In the event of a dispute as to any entrant, the authorized account holder of the Instagram account used to enter will be deemed to be the entrant. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned an account by Instagram. Potential winners of any prize may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder to be awarded the prize. All entries become the sole and exclusive property of Sponsor and will not be returned or cancelled.

In the event of any tie, the entrant whose Submission received the highest score in the “Originality and creativity of submission” category from among the tied Submissions, as determined by the qualified judges in their sole discretion, will be selected as the potential prize winner. An entrant is only eligible to win one (1) prize during the Contest Entry Period.
The entrants who submit the second and third best Submission of each Entry Period (each an “Honorable Mention”) will be featured on the @rebelbourbon Instagram account.
