CONTENT SUBMISSION: All entries and all photos, included therein become the exclusive property of Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. By entering such Contest, you: 1) grant Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. permission to use, in perpetuity and at our sole discretion, your name and likeness on our website and any other promotional materials, in any and all media now known or hereafter devised, without further compensation to you, unless prohibited by law; 2) represent and warrant that you are the original creator of all visual, audiovisual, and written material included in your entry, and that such material does not contain any elements created or owned by anyone else, or anything that violates a trademark, tradename, logo, likeness, copyright, patent, publicity, privacy or other rights of anyone else; 3) represent and warrant that no visual, audiovisual, and/or written material included in your entry has been produced or commercially exploited before; and 4) represent and warrant that no visual, audiovisual, and/or written material included in your entry contains any defamatory, libelous, illegal or obscene content.
REASONS WHY YOUR ENTRY MIGHT BE AXED: 1. Your entry featured minors or any persons under the legal drinking age (except incidental and not part of the primary content.) C’mon guys, we all know you think your niece holding a beer bottle is cute, but we also know combining underage folks and beer is just a bad idea. 2. Your entry featured explicit nudity (by any person over and under the legal drinking age). Keep it in your pants…nobody needs to see that. 3) Your entry included disparaging context regarding competitive products. Of course we think we make the best beer in the world, but there are a lot of great beers that folks work really hard to bring to you. Can’t we all just get along? Any entry that fails to abide by these conditions will not be considered.
