    1. Facebook: Log in to or create your Facebook account. Visit the Red Lobster page on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/redlobster and locate the Sponsor's post regarding this Promotion. Comment on the post with a short description (140 characters or fewer) of your Lobsterworthy moment (a story or celebration) including the hashtag #LobsterworthyContest. If you do so during the Contest Phase, your comment and the hashtag are your "Submission" into the Contest.

Twitter's terms (https://twitter.com/tos) apply. In order for your entry to be valid, your Twitter account must be public and thus viewable by the Sponsor and its agents. Retweets are not eligible for this Promotion.

    Your optional photo, if any, must meet the size and format requirements of the social channel via which you enter. By posting or tweeting your Submission, you agree that your Submission conforms to the Content Restrictions as defined below and that Sponsor, in its sole discretion, may remove your Submission and disqualify you from the Promotion if it believes that your Submission fails to conform to the Content Restrictions.

    Content Restrictions:

    • The Submission must be the entrant's original work;
    • The Submission must not contain material that violates or infringes another's rights, including but not limited to privacy, publicity, trademark, copyright, or other intellectual property rights;
    • The Submission must not disparage Sponsor, Administrator or any party or competitor of Sponsor;
    • The Submission must not contain brand names or trademarks other than those owned by Sponsor, which entrant has a limited license to use to incorporate in his/her Submission in this Promotion;
    • The Submission must not contain material that is inappropriate, indecent, obscene, hateful, tortious, defamatory, slanderous or libelous;
    • The Submission must not contain material that promotes bigotry, racism, hatred or harm against any group or individual or promotes discrimination based on race, gender, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation or age; and
    • The Submission must not contain material that is unlawful, in violation of or contrary to the laws or regulations in any state where Submission is created

    By posting a Submission that uses the Promotion hashtag and conforms to the Content Restrictions, during the Promotion Period, you will receive either one (1) Contest entry or one (1) Sweepstakes entry, depending on the date that you participated (see chart above). Each entrant must have permission from all individuals who appear or who are mentioned in the Submission (if any) or participated in the creation of the Submission to use their name, story, and/or likeness in the Submission and to grant the rights set forth herein. If requested, entrant must be able to provide such permissions in a form acceptable to Sponsor. Except where prohibited by law, uploading a Submission constitutes entrant's consent to give Sponsor a royalty-free, irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive license to use, reproduce, modify, publish, create derivative works from, and display such submissions in whole or in part, on a worldwide basis, and to incorporate it into other works, in any form, media or technology now known or later developed, including for promotional or marketing purposes, whether in connection with the Promotion or otherwise. If requested, entrant will sign any documentation that may be required for Sponsor or its designees to make use of the non-exclusive rights entrant is granting to use the Submission. Released Parties (as defined in Section 9, below) are not responsible for lost, late, stolen, damaged, incomplete, invalid, un-intelligible, garbled, delayed or misdirected Submissions; all of which will be void.

    Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any potential winner if, in its sole discretion, it finds content on his or her social media pages to be inconsistent with the brand's image (for example, if content is in violation of any of the Content Restrictions above).

    Limit: Each entrant may enter up to five (5) times total during the Promotion Period, regardless of method or combination of methods of entry. Multiple entrants are not permitted to share the same Instagram, Twitter or Facebook account. Any attempt by any entrant to obtain more than the stated number of Submissions/entries by using multiple/different accounts, identities, registrations and logins, or any other methods will void that entrant's Submissions/entries and that entrant may be disqualified. Use of any automated system to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification. In the event of a dispute as to any registration, the authorized account holder of the Instagram, Twitter and/or Facebook account used to enter will be deemed to be the entrant. The "authorized account holder" is the natural person associated with the Instagram, Twitter or Facebook account used to enter. Each potential winner may be required to show proof of being an authorized account holder.

  6. Winner Determination: Winners will be determined according to the process set forth below, separate for Contest and Sweepstakes.

    1. CONTEST: After the conclusion of the Contest Phase, a panel of qualified judges determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion will rank all eligible Contest Submissions based on the following criteria ("Judging Criteria"):

      • Creativity/Originality (40%);
      • Fit to the #LobsterworthyContest Theme (40%);
      • Quality of Submission (10%); and
      • Celebratory Nature of the Submission (10%)

      The five (5) entrants with the highest-scoring Submissions will be deemed to be the potential Contest Finalists. In the event of a tie, the entrant whose tied Submission received the highest score for "Fit to the #LobsterworthyContest Theme," as determined by the qualified judges, in their sole discretion, will be deemed the applicable potential Contest Finalist. Sponsor reserves the right to select fewer than the stated number of potential Contest Finalists, if, in its sole discretion, it does not receive a sufficient number of eligible and qualified Submissions.

      Each Finalist will be required to complete a release form (see details in Section 5, below) within 7 days providing Sponsor with his or her contact information as well as permission for Sponsor to conduct a background check on him or her, or forfeit the opportunity to be considered for a prize. Sponsor will also schedule a short video phone call with each Finalist to discuss his or her Submission in further detail (the "Interview"), which may be recorded. Sponsor and Sponsor's agents, in their sole discretion will score the Interview based on the criteria below:

      • Enthusiasm and Personality during Interview (40%);
      • Fit of concepts discussed during Interview to the #LobsterworthyContest Theme (40%); and
      • Availability to travel within a short timeframe to be in the Celebratory Video, based on Sponsor's schedule (20%)

      Once all background checks are complete, each Finalist who passed his or her background check as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion, will have his or her score from the Judging Criteria above (weighted 50%) added to his or her score from the Interview (weighted at 50%), and the Finalist with the highest total score will be the potential Grand Prize winner of the Contest. The other Finalists each will receive a Runner-Up Prize. In the event of an exact tie, the tied Finalist who received the highest score for Fit of concepts discussed during Interview to the #LobsterworthyContest Theme will be deemed the potential Grand Prize winner among the tied Finalists.

    2. SWEEPSTAKES: Administrator is an independent judging organization whose decisions as to the administration and operation of the Sweepstakes and the selection of the potential winners are final and binding in all matters related to the Sweepstakes. Administrator will randomly select the potential winners from among all eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes Phase, on or around April 28, 2016.
  7. Winner Requirements: The potential winners will be notified by the Sponsor through a public or private message via the social platform by which the Submission was submitted (as applicable) on or around the applicable dates in the chart above and must follow all prize claim instructions within the requested time frame or forfeit the prize. The potential winners will be notified by @redlobster via Instagram or Twitter, or through messages on Facebook. If a potential winner who entered using Twitter is not already following @redlobster on Twitter, he or she will be required to follow @redlobster within twenty-four (24) hours of the date of the initial notification in order to receive details about claiming the prize. Once a potential winner receives information about claiming his/her prize, he/she has five (5) days to respond with his/her full address information or forfeit the prize.

    Each potential Contest Finalist (or parent/legal guardian if the potential winner is a minor in his/her state of residence) will be required to sign and return a Declaration of Compliance, Background Check Approval, and Release form ("Release") which must be received by Administrator, within seven (7) days of the date notice or attempted notice is sent, in order to authorize the background check, agree to the Interview, and agree to accept the Finalist Prize if he or she is not the potential Contest Grand Prize winner.
