  1. How to Enter

During the Entry Period, Dollar Shave Club will make a series of posts in relation to the Contest on its owned and operated Instagram handle (@dollarshaveclub) and Twitter handle (@DollarShaveClub) (the “Posts”). Once you see a Post, follow the instructions to post a photo of your own smooth chin to your Instagram profile or Twitter feed, using #ContestChintry and tagging @dollarshaveclub in the post (the “Submission”) to receive one (1) entry into the Contest (the “Entry”).  Your Submission must be a picture of your own chin; you may not use a picture of someone else’s chin.  If posting on Instagram, your Submission must be a new, in-feed post to your Instagram profile to be eligible.

You can obtain a maximum of one (1) Entry for this Contest.

Your Submission must be uploaded in accordance with the Instagram Terms of Use and Privacy Notice (help.instagram.com/581066165581870), or the Twitter Terms of Service (twitter.com/en/tos), as applicable.  If you do not already have an Instagram or Twitter account, visit www.instagram.com or www.twitter.com to create one for free. Your Instagram or Twitter account must also be set to public.

The person uploading the Entry will be deemed the entrant (the “Entrant”). Entrant must be the authorized account holder of the e-mail address registered to the Instagram or Twitter account used to enter the Contest. The “authorized account holder” is defined as the natural person to whom the e-mail address is assigned by an internet service provider, online service provider or other organization (e.g., business, educational institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the submitted e-mail address.  Potential winners may be required to provide identification sufficient to show that he/she is the authorized account holder of the Instagram account, in Sponsor’s sole discretion. In the event of a discrepancy between the identity of the authorized account holder, the “winner,” and the Entrant, Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to determine whether the Entry is valid or to declare the Entry invalid and select an alternate winner from the list of all remaining eligible Entries.

By entering, you agree to waive any rights you may have to the Entry submitted. The Entry, or any portion thereof, may not contain obscene, profane, lewd, defamatory or inappropriate content, or be disparaging to Sponsor, as determined in Sponsor’s sole discretion. Entries must be in keeping with Sponsor's image and may not be offensive, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion, nor can it defame or invade publicity rights or privacy rights of any person, living or deceased, or otherwise infringe upon any person's personal or proprietary rights. Entrants may not copy or otherwise plagiarize the Entry from any source. All Entries must be the sole, original work of the Entrants. Any Entry or portion thereof that is, in the Sponsor’s sole discretion, obscene, profane, lewd, defamatory, inappropriate, disparaging, offensive or contains proprietary right of any person living or deceased (including but not limited to rights of privacy or publicity or portrayal in a false light) or entity, or is otherwise objectionable, will not be considered and may disqualify the Entrant. Entries should not contain any third-party materials (other than Dollar Shave Club), or otherwise violate or infringe (or possibly infringe) any copyright, trademark, logo, mark that identifies a brand. Sponsor may blur or black out the infringing material, in their sole discretion. Entries become the property of the Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or returned. Entrants and winners acknowledge and agree that their Entries become the property of the Sponsor, which thereby has the right to edit, adapt, modify, reproduce, promote and otherwise use Entries in any way it sees fit.

Compliance with the Entry requirements will be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion.  Submissions that violate these Official Rules will be disqualified from the Contest.

  1. Judging/Winner Selection and Notification

All eligible Submissions received throughout the Entry Period will be judged by Sponsor-selected judges (“Judges”) based on the following criteria: Originality/Creativity (25%); Best Show of Fandom (25%); Most Interesting Chin Design (25%); and Passion/Enthusiasm (25%) (the “Judging Criteria”). Two (2) potential Grand Prize winners and three (3) potential Second Prize winners of the Contest will be selected by the Judges on or about March 18, 2022. Any tied Submissions will be re-judged by the Judges based 100% on Most Interesting Chin Design. By participating, Entrants agree to the Official Rules and the decisions of the Judges, which shall be final and binding with respect to all matters relating to the Contest.

Sponsor will notify potential winners via a comment on/response to their Entry or via direct message, on or around March 18, 2022. The contact notification will include instructions on how to claim the Prize. If any winner is found to be ineligible, or not in compliance with these Official Rules, declines to accept a prize, if Sponsor is unable to contact the winner within twenty-four (24) hours of attempting contact, or in the event that a prize notification is returned undeliverable, the Prize may be forfeited.  The potential winner must furnish proof of identification and sign, complete, and return an Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability Release and, except where prohibited, a Publicity Release and Assignment of Rights (the “Prize Claim Documents”), within three (3) days of attempted notification or the Prize may be forfeited.  In the event that a potential winner fails to return the completed Prize Claim Documents within three (3) days, or is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor reserves the right to award the Prize to an alternate Entrant. Sponsor, in its sole discretion and time permitting, will attempt to contact up to three (3) potential winners of a prize in accordance with the above procedure, after which the Prize may go unawarded if it remains unclaimed.
