4. In the event of a dispute over the identity of a potential winner, the potential winner may be required to provide identification sufficient to show that he/she is the person identified on the entry submission and is otherwise eligible to win.

5. Ignite is not responsible for any lost, late, illegible, incomplete, falsified, destroyed, or failed entries, or for any electronic miscommunications or failures of any kind, which may limit an entrant’s ability to participate in the Giveaway. Proof of submitting an entry is not proof of receipt by Ignite. All entries become the property of Ignite and will not be acknowledged or returned. Any and all lost, late, illegible, incomplete, falsified, destroyed, or failed entries will be disqualified. No purchase is necessary to enter or win, and a purchase will not increase the odds of your winning.

6. One (1) or more prizes will be available to be won on each of the thirteen (13) Draw Dates set out in section 18 below (each a “Draw Date”). At each Draw Date a random drawing from all eligible entries received during the Giveaway Period corresponding with that Draw Date (see section 18 below) will be held. The first entrant whose entry form is drawn on the Draw Date and who otherwise complies with these Official Rules will be eligible to win a prize. The chance of being selected will depend on the number of eligible entries received during the Giveaway Period prior to the relevant Draw Date.

Prize Draws

7. At the outset of the Giveaway, there are a total of thirteen (13) prizes available to be won. The number of prizes available will reduce as awarded. The prizes available to be won by valid entrants are to be announced from time to time on Ignite’s website at the following address: ignitemag.ca/year_of_giving. The approximate value of each prize will range from $100.00 to $3,000.00.

There is a limit of one (1) prize per person during the entire Giveaway Period.

8. Ignite will make reasonable efforts to contact potential winners by telephone (if telephone number provided) and/or email within ten (10) business days following the relevant Draw Date. If the potential winner cannot be contacted within the time specified above, does not complete the necessary eligibility forms (outlined below) within fourteen (14) days of his/her being informed of his/her name being drawn, does not correctly answer the mathematical skill-testing question, is not otherwise an eligible entrant, or does not otherwise comply with these Official Rules, he/she will not win any prize. In this event, the prize will be awarded to an alternate entrant, who will be selected from among the remaining eligible entries. Any alternate winner will have the same rights and obligations as the original winner. To claim a prize, a potential winner must comply with these Official Rules for this Giveaway, must correctly answer unaided a time limited mathematical skill-testing question administered by Ignite and must fill out and return a Release within fourteen (14) days of his/her being informed of his/her name being drawn. Prizes will be delivered to confirmed winners.
