The entrant will be contacted by Instagram direct message and/or by reply to their comment entered on the contest post and may be awarded the prize (subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with the terms of these rules.) Sponsor’s decisions as to the administration and operation of the Giveaway and the selection of potential winner are final and binding in all matters related to the Giveaway.
