NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN, NOR WILL A PURCHASE IMPROVE ONE’S CHANCES OF WINNING. 

1.  Eligibility:  Entrants must be legal US residents, at least 18 years old or above, as determined by KPCQ and reside in the KCP Designated Market Area (“DMA”) as defined by The Nielsen Company. Void where prohibited and outside the DMA.  Employees of KCPQ, Tribune Media Broadcasting, LLC (“Sponsor”), and Seattle Seahawks and of their respective affiliates, parents and subsidiaries, the Sweepstakes’ participating sponsors, promotional agencies and their advertising agencies, employees of other television or radio stations, and members of the immediate families of such employees are not eligible to participate and win.  The term “immediate family” includes spouses, siblings, parents, children, grandparents and grandchildren, and any other person residing at the same household whether or not related.  Winning a prize is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth herein.

2.  Sweepstakes Period:  The Sweepstakes entry period begins on Monday, September 21, 2015, at 12:01 AM PST and ends Thursday, December 17, 2015 at 9:00 AM PST (the “Entry Period”).

3.  Sweepstakes Entry:  To enter the Sweepstakes, entrants must go to the Q13 FOX Instagram page at https://instagram.com/Q13FOX. Next, you must follow Q13 FOX News, like the Seattle Seahawks sweepstakes video and/or picture, and tag a friend you’d like to take to the game with you.  If you don’t already have an Instagram account, visit http://www.instagram.com for directions on how to create one.  It is free to create an account. You also must have a mobile device that supports the Instagram application on or before September 21, 2015. Entries are limited to one entry per person/Instagram account.  All received entries become the property of Sponsor and will not be returned.  Incomplete entries will be disqualified. Multiple entries by means of software-generated or other automated processes will be disregarded. Detection of said automated entry will lead to such entries being voided in Sponsor’s sole discretion.  If there is a dispute as to any entry, the authorized account holder of the Instagram account used to register will be deemed to be the entrant. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned an Instagram account by Instagram. Potential winner may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder.

5.  Prize Acceptance/Restrictions:  Winner is subject to verification by KCPQ of the winner’s name, age, address, phone number, and Social Security number (where the prize value is equal to or greater than $600.00).  In order to claim his or her prize, winner must appear in person at the business offices of KCPQ, located 1813 Westlake Ave N, Seattle, WA by 5:00 PM PST, during station hours.  Winner will be required to fill out an IRS Form W-9 and will receive a Form 1099 for any prize with a value of $600 or more.  Failure to do so will disqualify the winner.  If a winner is disqualified, Sponsor reserves the right to determine an alternate winner by random drawing from eligible entries received or to not award the prize at all.
