2018 Special Moments Contest Terms & Conditions:

Description

BCSO will hold a Special Moments Contest on social media from October 15 - November 12, 2018 where entrants can post photos on Instagram or Facebook of their special moments using the hashtags #SmileBC #BCOrtho #FindanOrtho and tagging @findanortho. For Instagram, profiles must be set to public. For Facebook, posts must be set to public. Entrants may also tag a friend in a BCSO contest post to enter. Every Monday during the contest period, a 1st Prize ($500) and a 2nd Prize ($250) winner will be selected by the British Columbia Society of Orthodontists. Winners will be notified by email and will be sent a gift certificate of either $500 or $250 to go towards orthodontic services from a BCSO member in good standing.

How to Enter

Entrants must post a picture on Instagram or Facebook of a special moment with the hashtags #SmileBC #BCOrtho #FindanOrtho and tag @findanortho, or they can tag a friend in the comments section of a BCSO contest post. The Contest begins at 9:00am Pacific Time ("PT") on October 15, 2018 and ends at 11:59pm PT on November 12, 2018 (the "Contest Period") after which time the Contest will be closed and no further entries shall be accepted. 

Eligibility restrictions

The contest is open to any member of the public that resides in the province of British Columbia, including existing and new patients of BCSO members. Should a winner be selected that is under the age of 18, a parent/guardian's email will be requested for verification. Participants agree to abide by applicable federal, provincial, local laws and regulations.

Prizes

A prize of $500 and $250 will be awarded weekly during the contest period. Winners will be randomly selected by the British Columbia Society of Orthodontists based on the Instagram and/or Facebook photos submitted during the contest period, or based on tags on BCSO contest posts.

Prizes have no cash value. No substitution of prize is offered. Prizes may be transferred to a third party if the winner does not require orthodontic treatment. However, the name of the third party must be given to BCSO prior to treatment. The name on the gift certificate and the person receiving orthodontic treatment must be the same.

The prize will be awarded only upon winner verification and approval by the British Columbia Society of Orthodontists. The weekly winners will be notified via their social media accounts, and their email (as well as the email of a parent/guardian should the winner be under the age of 18) every Monday during the contest period (as well as the Monday immediately following the contest close). The winner will then have fourteen (14) days to accept and respond with their information. If the winner is unable to be contacted within seven (7) days after being selected or is ineligible, the prize will be forfeited and another winner selected. Upon accepting the prize, the winner agrees to have his/her name and photo published on the British Columbia Society of Orthodontists' channels, as well as commits to any external media obligations regarding the contest, should they arise.

A winning certificate must be used within one year after the prize has been claimed. Expiration date will be indicated on the gift certificate.
