THIRD PARTY RELEASES
Entrants are responsible for obtaining a signed release from all persons appearing in a photo (including the parents/guardians of minors appearing in a photo), and from the creators of artwork, or other copyrighted or trademarked materials appearing in a photo, authorizing Sponsors to reproduce, distribute, display, broadcast, modify and create derivative works in connection with this contest, in any media now, or hereafter, known.

Should a winner make any false statement(s) in any documents referenced herein, the winner will be required to promptly return an awarded prize to Sponsors.
An entry is void if Sponsors determine the entry is not original, or if the entry is illegible, incomplete, damaged, counterfeit, or obtained through fraud or theft, including copying an image from any other online or offline source that is not the author's own.

Entrants acknowledge and agree that Sponsors have no duty or liability, present or future, direct or indirect, or otherwise, with respect to the infringement or protection of the copyright in and to the entry.
A panel of judges consisting of professionals and experts from the fields of photography, television, film or literature, and chosen at Sponsors' sole discretion, will choose the winners. The judges will score the quality, creativity and technical skill displayed in both the photo and the essay. The photo and the essay will each account for 50% of the overall score.

Judges will then choose the top three winners, including the respective placement of first, second or third place, from among the top ten winners, using the same criteria.
Ties will be broken by a vote of Judges. A potential winner must sign and return all required documentation before being declared an official winner. Entrants may not amend, supplement, edit, or otherwise alter their entry once it has been submitted. Judges' decisions are final and may not be appealed.

Sponsors shall have no liability for any notification that is not received by a potential winner for any reason. If, despite reasonable efforts, a potential prize winner does not respond within five days of the first notification attempt, or if a prize is returned as unclaimed or undeliverable to a potential prize winner, such potential prize winner may forfeit their prize and an alternate prize winner may be selected at Sponsors' discretion. If any potential prize winner is found to be ineligible or declines a prize for any reason, an alternate winner may be selected. Sponsors may successively attempt to contact up to two potential prize winners in accordance with such procedure, and if there is still no confirmed prize winner after such attempts have been made, the applicable prize may go unawarded.

In the event that any provision in these Official Rules is determined to be invalid or unenforceable, these rules shall otherwise remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with their terms as if the invalid provision were not contained herein.
Issues concerning the construction, validity, and interpretation of these Official Rules, or the rights and obligations of Entrants or Sponsors, shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the United States and the internal laws of California without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules that would cause the application of any other jurisdiction's laws.
WAIVER OF EQUITABLE RELIEF
Entrants agree that with respect to any claim arising out of actual or alleged exploitation or use of any material submitted in connection with this contest, the damage, if any, thereby caused to Entrants will not be irreparable or otherwise sufficient to entitle Entrants to seek injunctive or other equitable relief and Entrants' sole remedy is the right to recover damages, if any, in an action at law in the appropriate court in California.
RELEASE AND LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY
Sponsors shall not be liable for any taxes owed by prize winners for prizes won.
Sponsors are not responsible for the transportation or accommodations of those attending the AHMC Health Foundation Gala.
