If a Tweet is more than one post in length it will be considered as one (1) entry with the first post considered the Entry. Entrant's Twitter settings must be "public". Entries posted from "private" Twitter accounts will not be eligible. Entrants must follow and continue to follow @AnnTaylor through at least January 31, 2017 in order to be notified in the event he/she is a potential winner.

IMPORTANT: MESSAGE AND DATA RATES MAY APPLY TO USE OF MOBILE PHONE/DEVICE TO PARTICIPATE IN SWEEPSTAKES. CREATING A TWITTER ACCOUNT IS FREE.
All Entries become the Sponsor's property and will not be returned or acknowledged. Once an Entry is submitted it cannot be modified by an Entrant. Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, illegible, garbled, inaccurate, invalid, misdirected, undelivered, or delayed Entries. No altered or incomplete submissions will be accepted. Multiple participants are not permitted to share the same Twitter account. Sponsor may not receive Entries from Twitter users with "protected" updates or profiles that are not public (i.e. user has set the Account so that only people the user has approved can view updates). Entries not received by the Sponsor will not be entered into the Sweepstakes. Incomplete Entries will not be accepted and are void. Only Entries that are recorded through Twitter's servers will be considered.

WINNER SELECTION & NOTIFICATION: The Sweepstakes is under the administration of the Administrator, an independent advisor of the Sponsor whose decisions are final.
Six (6) potential Grand Prize winners will be selected in a random drawing by the Administrator on or about Wednesday, December 28, 2016 from among all eligible entries received. The potential Grand Prize winners will be notified by Sponsor via direct message and/or comment to his/her public Twitter account (the "Initial Notification") on or about Wednesday, December 28, 2016. To begin the prize claim process, the potential Grand Prize winners must respond as instructed to the Initial Notification with his/her full name and email address within 48 hours of the Initial Notification. Within three (3) days of confirmation of the information received from the potential Grand Prize winner in response to Initial Notification, such potential Grand Prize winner will receive a second notification (the "Second Notification") via email from the Administrator and will be required to confirm his/her address, phone number and date of birth within three (3) days. Noncompliance will result in disqualification and an alternate winner being selected. Winners are responsible for all federal, state, local, and income taxes associated with winning the prize.
Any potential prize winner who does not reply to the Initial Notification and the Second Notification with the required information and within the specified time period will be disqualified and an alternate winner will be notified. If an Initial Notification or Second Notification is returned as undeliverable, or if the selected prize winner fails to claim the prize or if selected winner cannot accept or receive the prize for any reason, or he/she is not in compliance with these Official Rules, the prize will be forfeited and an alternate winner will be selected.
SECOND CHANCE DRAWING: A prize that has not been claimed or has been forfeited due to causes, including, but not limited to, ineligibility of potential winner or returned email, will be included in a Second Chance Drawing for such unclaimed prize. The Second Chance Drawing will be conducted in a random drawing on or about January 11, 2017 from among all eligible entries received. Potential winners selected in any Second Chance Drawing will be contacted within approximately 48 hours after such Second Chance Drawing.
PRIZE CONDITIONS: If a winner is otherwise eligible under these Official Rules, but is nevertheless deemed a minor in his or her state of primary residence, the prize will be awarded in the name of winner's parent or legal guardian who will be required to execute and return an Affidavit of Eligibility & Publicity/Liability Release (the "Releases") on minor's behalf. If the Releases are returned as undeliverable or if the selected winner cannot accept or receive the prize for any reason, or he/she is not in compliance with these Official Rules, the prize will be forfeited and an alternate winner will be selected in a Second Chance Drawing.
If a prize notification or prize is returned as undeliverable, or if a winner is found to be ineligible or not in compliance with these rules that winner will be disqualified, and the prize may be awarded to an alternate winner in a separate random drawing.
Prizes are not redeemable for cash. Prizes are for winner's personal use and are not assignable or transferable and will not pass to the estate of the winner. No substitution is permitted except as otherwise noted in these Official Rules. No cash in lieu of prize and no exchange or substitution of prize, except at the sole discretion of the Sponsor. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute other alternate, similar forms of prize disbursement. Any incidental expenses incurred in connection with claiming or using the prize that are not specified in these Official Rules are winner's sole responsibility.
The prizes will be awarded within 4 to 6 weeks of winners being verified.
Except where prohibited by law, entry and acceptance of prize constitute permission to use winner's name, prize won, hometown, likeness, video tape, photographs, and statements for purposes of advertising, promotion and publicity (including online posting) in any and all media now or hereafter known throughout the world in perpetuity, without additional compensation, notification or permission.
