You may enter into this sweepstakes (the “Sweepstakes”) only once per Instagram account. Use of any robotic, automatic, programmed, or similar entry method or entering more than the number of times permitted will void all entries and result in disqualification. This Sweepstakes is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with, Instagram, Inc. (“Instagram"). NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. A PURCHASE WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING. Sponsor may offer a similar sweepstakes from time to time. Each offer is separate. Entry into each sweepstakes is separate. The start/end time, how to enter and available prize for each sweepstakes will be listed in the offer for that sweepstakes on Sponsor’s website here. The other terms below will apply to each sweepstakes.

If, in the Sponsor’s opinion, there is such an error, or there is any suspected evidence of tampering with any portion of the Sweepstakes, or if technical difficulties compromise the integrity of the Sweepstakes, Sponsor reserves the right to cancel or modify this Sweepstakes in a manner deemed appropriate in its sole discretion. In the event of termination, winners will be selected from among all eligible entries received as of date of termination.
