The Contest provides Slusho! fans with the opportunity to create and submit their own Slusho! commercial on the Slusho! Website -- www.slusho.jp -- (the "Website"). Entrants can get more info about the Slusho! product to use in their commercial from the Website. By participating in the Contest, each participant unconditionally accepts and agrees to comply with and abide by these Official Rules and the decisions of Bold Futura, LLC, 1223 Wilshire Boulevard, No. 1422, Santa Monica, CA 90403 (the "Sponsor"), which shall be final and binding in all respects.

ELIGIBILITY: Only legal residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia who are at least eighteen (18) years of age, or the age of majority in the state of his/her residence, whichever is older, at the time of entry are eligible to enter the Contest. Employees, officers and directors of Sponsor and any of its parent, subsidiary and affiliated companies (collectively, the "Contest Entities"), as well as members of their immediate family (spouse, parents, siblings and children) or household are ineligible to participate in the Contest or win a prize. Additionally, professional writers, directors and producers are ineligible to participate in this Contest. Void where prohibited by law.

HOW TO ENTER: No purchase is necessary to enter this Contest. Eligible entrants must go to the Website during the Contest Period and follow the directions to fill out and submit the entry form for the Contest ("Entry Form"). The Entry Form will require entrants to include a URL link to their video commercial for Slusho! (a "Submission"). Entrants are encouraged to keep their Submissions limited to a length of approximately thirty (30) seconds or less, and Submissions should not be longer than one (1) minute. Only one Submission from each entrant will be considered for the Contest. In the event of multiple Submissions by the same entrant, only the last Submission will be eligible and all other previous Submissions by such entrant will be disqualified. Sponsor reserves the right to determine in its sole discretion which Submissions have satisfied the entry requirements. Sponsor will not notify participants whether or not their Submission has been rejected or accepted. All Submissions must be actually received at the Website by the end of the Contest Period in order to participate. Sponsor's computer clock will be the official time keeper for this Contest. Proof of entering or submitting information or material is not proof of receipt at the Website. Each Submission must be made by an individual entrant, only on the Website. Submissions made by any other individual or any entity, and/or originating at any other web site or e-mail address, including but not limited to commercial promotion subscription notification and/or entering service sites, will be declared invalid and disqualified for this Contest. The use of any device to automate the entry process is prohibited.

SUBMITTED MATERIALS: "Material" includes to the extent applicable (a) any information and material (e.g. video, music, photos, writings, statements and comments) submitted by an entrant in or in connection with the Contest, including without limitation the Submission; and (b) an entrant's name, likeness, voice, image and other characteristics. Entrants are not permitted to submit any Material created by anyone other than themselves. If any group of individuals elects to collaborate on the Materials (including without limitation a Submission), they are required to designate the individual submitting the Submission as the agent of the group to enter the Contest, to agree to these Official Rules and accept any prize (if judged the winning Submission) on behalf of the group. Neither Sponsor, nor any of the Contest Entities, are liable for any disputes between collaborators arising under or related to the Contest. If a dispute as to the identity of an entrant cannot be resolved to Sponsor's satisfaction, the affected Submission will be deemed ineligible. By submitting Material, each entrant represents and warrants to Sponsor that (i) the Material is wholly original with the entrant and does not infringe upon or otherwise violate any right of any third party, (ii) the entrant has all rights necessary to submit the Material in the Contest in accordance with these Official Rules and to grant all rights in the Submission to Sponsor, and (iii) no party other than the entrant has any right, title or interest in and to the Material or any part of the Material. By participating in this Contest, each entrant hereby agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Sponsor and the Contest Entities and their respective affiliates, employees, officers, directors, and agents from any claim, liability, injury, damage or other loss arising out of or related to your participation in the Contest, including without limitation any Material submitted, and any failure on your part to fully comply with these Official Rules, and any acceptance and use of any prize. Material must not contain offensive or lewd content, as determined by Sponsor in its sole and absolute discretion. All Material submitted will become the property of Sponsor and will not be returned. By entering the Contest, each entrant irrevocably grants, transfers, sells and assigns to Sponsor a fully-paid, exclusive right and license to publish, perform, reproduce, prepare derivative works of, morph, scan, edit, alter, distribute, display, exhibit, transmit, broadcast, televise, digitize and otherwise use, and permit others to use and perform, the Material in whole or in part, throughout the universe in perpetuity in any and all media, now known or hereafter devised, including without limitation on the Internet, and for any purpose, including, but not limited to, advertising or promotion of Sponsor and its services, all without further notice, consent or approval from or payment to such entrant, and each entrant hereby releases Sponsor and the Contest Entities from any liability arising out of any such use. Each entrant agrees that Sponsor has no obligation to use or continue using such entrant's Material. Submissions that do not comply with these Official Rules or that otherwise contain prohibited or inappropriate content as determined by Sponsor, in its sole discretion, will be disqualified and will not be considered for a prize. Sponsor makes the final determination as to which Submissions are eligible to take part in this Contest and may be considered for a prize. Certain Submissions may be featured from time to time on the Website during the Contest Period, in Sponsor's sole discretion, and Website visitors may be invited to vote for their favorite featured Submissions; being selected as a featured Submission and/or receiving Website visitor votes is unrelated to the Judging Criteria (as defined below) and does not guarantee selection as a prize winner in the Contest. For the avoidance of doubt, any Website visitor voting is independent of the Judging Criteria and obtaining the most Website visitor votes (if any) does not entitle any such Submission to any prizing.

PRIZES / ODDS: There will be five (5) prize winners for this Contest. Each prize winner will receive one (1) Slusho!-skinned Alienware Area-51 m9750 laptop computer (Approximate retail value ("ARV") of $3,000). The total ARV for the Contest is $15,000. Odds of winning a prize depend on the number of eligible Submissions received during the Contest Period.

GENERAL PRIZE CONDITIONS: All details and other restrictions of prizes not specified in these Official Rules will be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. Any and all prizes will be delivered only to an address in the United States. Prizes are non-assignable and non-transferable. No cash alternative or prize substitutions will be allowed, except Sponsor reserves the right to substitute prize(s) of comparable value if the prizes listed or any component of any prize listed is unavailable for any reason. Any prizes depicted in promotional packaging or otherwise in connection with this Contest are for illustrative purposes only and may not represent the actual prize(s) that is (are) awarded. In the event there is a discrepancy or inconsistency between disclosures or other statements contained in any Contest promotional materials and the terms and conditions of these Official Rules, these Official Rules shall prevail and govern. The prize winners shall be solely responsible for all federal, state and/or local taxes, and the reporting consequences thereof, and for any other fees or costs associated with the applicable prize. The potential prize winners will be required to execute an Affidavit of Eligibility, a Liability Release, a Work-For-Hire/Copyright Assignment of the Submission, originals of any and all releases, permissions and licenses of any elements (including music) used in their Submission, a W-9 Form, and (where legal) a Non-Disclosure Agreement and a Publicity Release (collectively, "Prize Claim Documents"). If a winner is considered a minor in his or her state of residence, at Sponsor's option, the applicable prize either will be awarded in the name of the parent or legal guardian of the winner, or the parent or legal guardian of the winner will be required to ratify and sign the Prize Claim Documents. Potential prize winners will also be required to provide Sponsor, in a file format to be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion, an actual copy of their Submission, as opposed to the URL link they submitted to enter the Contest. Time is of the essence in awarding the prizes. Accordingly, if a winner (or, in the case of a minor, such minor-winner's parent or legal guardian) fails or refuses to sign and return all Prize Claim Documents and provide a file copy of their Submission within seven (7) days of prize notification (or a shorter time if required by exigencies), the winner may be disqualified and the next runner up may be selected as an alternate winner. Sponsor will issue a Form 1099 to each winner.

WINNER SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION: Eligible Submissions will be judged on the following judging criteria ("Judging Criteria"): (i) embodying the happy-fun excitement of the Slusho! product - 50%; (ii) originality - 20%; (iii) creativity - 20%; (iv) adhering to the suggested length of thirty (30) seconds for a Submission - 5%; and (v) not associating Slusho! with something scary and bad - 5%. The winning Submission(s) will be selected by a judging process in which a qualified panel of judges ("Judges"), selected by Sponsor in its sole discretion, will evaluate each eligible submission based on the Judging Criteria. In the event of a tie, the tied Submissions will be re-judged by a different panel of judges chosen by Sponsor, consisting of an odd-number of judges, who will break the tie using the same Judging Criteria defined above. Entrants agree that Sponsor has the sole right to decide all matters and disputes arising from this Contest and that all decisions of Sponsor are final and binding. Within two (2) weeks of the conclusion of the Contest Period, the potential winners will be notified by telephone and/or mail and/or email using the contact information provided at the time of entry. Sponsor shall have no liability for any winner notification that is lost, intercepted or not received by the potential winners for any reason. If, despite reasonable efforts, a potential winner does not respond within twenty-four (24) hours of the first notification attempt, or if the prize or prize notification is returned as unclaimed or undeliverable to such potential winner, such potential winner will forfeit his or her prize and an alternate winner may be selected. If any potential winner is found to be ineligible, or if he or she has not complied with these Official Rules or declines a prize for any reason prior to award, such potential winner will be disqualified and an alternate may be selected. Sponsor may successively attempt to contact up to two (2) potential winners in accordance with such procedure, and if there is still no confirmed winner of a prize after such attempts have been made, if any, the prize may go un-awarded.

PUBLICITY RELEASE: By participating in the Contest, in addition to any other grants which may be granted in any other agreement entered into between Sponsor and any entrant in or winner of the Contest, each entrant irrevocably grants the Contest Entities and their respective successors, assigns and licensees, the right to use such entrant's name, likeness, and biographical information, and any individual(s) participating therein, in any and all media (including, without limitation, as a featured video on the Website) for any purpose, including without limitation, advertising and promotional purposes as well as in, on or in connection with the Website, the Contest or other promotions related to Slusho!, without further payment or consideration, and hereby release the Contest Entities from any liability with respect thereto.

GENERAL LIABILITY RELEASE/FORCE MAJEURE: Entrants (or if minors, their parents or legal guardians) agree that the Contest Entities (i) shall not be responsible or liable for any losses, damages or injuries of any kind resulting from participation in the Contest or any Contest-related activity, or from entrants' acceptance, receipt, possession and/or use or misuse of the prize(s), and (ii) have not made any warranty, representation or guarantee express or implied, in fact or in law, with respect to the prize(s), including, without limitation, to such prize's quality or fitness for a particular purpose.

These Official Rules cannot be modified or amended in any way except in a written document issued in accordance with law by a duly authorized representative of Sponsor. The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these rules shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision. In the event that any provision is determined to be invalid or otherwise unenforceable or illegal, these rules shall otherwise remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with their terms as if the invalid or illegal provision were not contained herein.

DISPUTES: Except where prohibited, each entrant agrees that: (i) any and all disputes, claims and causes of action arising out of or connected with this Contest or any prize awarded shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action, and exclusively by the state and/or federal courts located in Los Angeles, California; (ii) any and all claims, judgments and awards shall be limited to actual out-of-pocket costs incurred, including costs associated with entering this Contest, but in no event attorneys' fees; and (iii) under no circumstances will entrant be permitted to obtain awards for, and entrant hereby waives all rights to claim, indirect, punitive, incidental and consequential damages and any other damages, other than for actual out-of-pocket expenses, and any and all rights to have damages multiplied or otherwise increased.
