6. Contest Administration
The winner will be selected by the Sponsor at random by drawing from all eligible entries received by the entry deadline and such drawing will be made at the Sponsor’s convenience after the end of the Contest Period. The selected winner will be required to correctly answer a mathematical skill testing question. The odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries submitted or received.
The Sponsor will announce the entrant selected as winner of the Contest on Instagram (subject to further compliance with the Contest Rules) and the entrant will be notified by private message on Instagram or such other means as may be available to the Sponsor. If the winner cannot be contacted within 48 hours of the Sponsor’s notification, if notifications are undeliverable, or if the winner does not respond within such 48-hour period, the selected entrant forfeits its right to receive the Prize and the Sponsor may select an alternate entrant as winner from the remaining entries.

- correctly answer a mathematical skill testing question (administered by the Sponsor in whichever format the Sponsor determines); and
- execute and return a declaration and release of liability (the “Declaration and Release”) in a form provided by the Sponsor.
If the winner does not comply with (a) to (c) above within 14 days of notification, the winner will be deemed to forfeit the prize and the Sponsor may select another winner. No person will be considered a winner of the Prize until the Sponsor officially confirms they are the winner under the Rules, notwithstanding any earlier announcement of the selected entrant.
