NO PURCHASE NECESSARY
1. Prizes will be awarded to the person who submitted the contest entry with the most number of votes once that contest has ended. There can only be one winner per contest but the same person is able to win multiple contests at the same time.
2. ELIGIBILITY: Unless otherwise stated in the particular contest description, contests are only open only to individuals (the “Entrant”) who submit amateur material. At the time of entry, each Entrant must be the legal age of majority in their state of legal residence and must be a resident of the United States. Void in Puerto Rico, Rhode Island and where prohibited by law. Persons in any of the following categories are not eligible to participate or win the prize(s) offered: (a) employees or agents of LoadnVote, affiliates and subsidiaries, participating Sponsors, partner companies, and prize suppliers; (b) immediate family members (defined as parents, children, siblings and spouse, regardless of where they reside) and/or those living in the same household as any person listed above. You must have access to the Internet and a valid email address in order to enter or win.
3. HOW TO ENTER: First, each user must create a valid account with LoadnVote.com to upload material. LoadnVote registration is free and contests will typically run on a two (2) week time schedule. The first week is composed of loading entries and the following week is composed of voting on the entries. However, LoadnVote may exercise the right to amend the time frame of a particular contest. IMPORTANT NOTICE TO ENTRANTS: EACH ENTRANT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR DETERMINING THE CORRESPONDING TIME ZONE IN HIS/HER RESPECTIVE JURISDICTION.
4. THE SUBMISSION: Create a media that is appropriate to the contest and void of any explicit material that LoadnVote may find offensive. Each submission will be considered one ("Entry"). You may submit multiple Entries, so long as each Entry meets all requirements. Once you have completed the registration process and have created your media, upload it to a current contest in the “loading phase” on LoadnVote.com. Your use of the LoadnVote website is subject to our Terms of Service which is located at www.loadnvote.com\terms. We reserve the right to update the terms at any time in our sole discretion so please review the terms periodically to ensure your compliance.
All Entries must be in English. Registration or Entries that are in any other language will not be considered. Entries that are lewd, obscene, pornographic, disparaging of LoadnVote or the Sponsor or otherwise contain objectionable material may be disqualified in LoadnVote's sole and unfettered discretion.
5. JUDGING: Winners will be rewarded if they receive the highest number of votes in particular contests. The system combines both “charity votes” and “head-to-head” votes as the same amount (1 vote). A charity vote is the right for the user and/or visitor of the site to vote for a specific entry once per day without having to enter the head-to-head format style of voting. If two entries feature the same content, or are very similar, LoadnVote has the right to eliminate one of the entries of its choice. If the contest is over and more than one entry has the same number of votes, the person who submitted the entry first will be rewarded as the sole winner.

Any potential winner who cannot be contacted within fifteen (15) days of first attempted notification will forfeit his/her prize and an alternate may be selected.
