Craftsy Challenges – Contest Rules

Date of Last Revision – May 13, 2011

Craftsy Challenges (each a "Challenge") are a series of skill-based craft contests organized by Sympoz Inc. d/b/a Craftsy, a Delaware corporation ("Craftsy"), through the website www.craftsy.com (the "Website"). By entering a Challenge and choosing to tender Challenge Submissions (as defined below), you agree to be bound by these contest rules (the "Contest Rules") as well as the terms of use of the Website and the terms and conditions of our Privacy Policy, which are published on the Website, and which are incorporated herein by reference. If you do not agree to any of these terms, then please do not participate in a Challenge.

1. Challenges

From time to time, Craftsy will post the details of a Challenge on the Website including the parameters for entries, any specific criteria for judging entries, the prizes offered and the dates for submissions and awards ("Challenge Instructions"). Only registered Users (as defined in the Terms of Use) of the Website may participate in Challenges (such participating Users, "Participants") and be eligible for prizes.

THERE IS NO PURCHASE OR PAYMENT REQUIRED TO ENTER A CHALLENGE OR RECEIVE A PRIZE.

2. Eligibility

a. Participants and prize recipients must be registered Users. Each User may submit one entry to each Challenge.
b. Participants must be legal residents of the United States or Canada. Prizes will not be delivered outside of the United States and Canada. Participants must be 21 years of age or older at time of entry.
F c. Each Challenge is void where prohibited by law and is subject to all applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations.
d. Directors, officers, employees and Instructors (as defined in the Terms of Use) of Craftsy, and their immediate families are not eligible to be Participants.

3. How To Enter

b. All entries for a Challenge must be received by the closing time and date specified in the Challenge Instructions for such Challenge.

4. Winners and Prizes

a. Winners of each Challenge will be chosen by one or more judges, each of which will be experienced in the craft field relevant to that Challenge. Entries shall be judged on (i) the level of skill demonstrated, (ii) level of creativity and originality in interpreting the Challenge Instructions, (iii) adherence to and compliance with the Challenge Instructions, and (iv) any other specific parameters set forth in the Challenge Instructions. Decisions as to the winners of each Challenge shall be in the sole discretion of Sympoz and shall be final.
b. Prizes for each Challenge shall be described in the applicable Challenge Instructions. Winners may not choose the cash value in lieu of the prize. No substitution, assignment or transfer of any prize is permitted. In the event a prize is unavailable for any reason, Craftsy reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to substitute a prize of equal or greater value. Any federal, state and local taxes on prize will be the sole responsibility of the winner.
c. Winners will be notified by way of a message to their user account on the Website. Winners may also be announced on the Website at the election of Craftsy. If a prize is not claimed within thirty (30) days after such notification, or if the winner is ineligible, or if the winner declines such prize, such prize may be forfeited and an alternate winner will be selected.
