HOW TO ENTER: NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. To be entered into the contest, visit the Madison Originals, Inc. Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Madison-Originals-107851205930781/?fref=nf and post a comment with a suggested name (a “Name Suggestion”) on the Name That Fork! Post.
Submissions to the Contest must be received during the Entry Period in order to be eligible; Name Suggestions received after that date will be deemed ineligible to win. Submitted Name Suggestions will not be acknowledged or returned; Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, inaccurate, incomplete, damaged, illegible, or misdirected entries.
Each Name Suggestion must be submitted on an individual basis (i.e., no team, joint, or corporate entries) and all components of the Name Suggestion must be the original creation of the submitting participant. Entrants may submit one Name Suggestion per day. Multiple entries will disqualify all the entrant’s entries. Entries will be deemed submitted by the authorized account holder of the Facebook account used to submit the entry. If two entrants submit the same Name Suggestion, the earliest posted qualified Name Suggestion will be used and the others disqualified.
Only non-commercial work may be submitted. Name Suggestions may not contain profanity, anti-competition messages, illegal material, or material that violates the rights of third parties or Facebook posting rules. Name Suggestions may not include confidential information, trade secrets, trademarks, or copyrighted material belonging to any person or entity other than the entrant, absent a suitable license or permission agreement, proof of which is required. Name Suggestions containing any forbidden matter or material otherwise deemed by Sponsor to be inappropriate will be disqualified and posts containing them may be deleted. If a Name Suggestion contains a brand name product or a trademark other than one belonging to Sponsor, Sponsor may disqualify the Name Suggestion or, at its sole discretion, remove the brand name or trademark from the Name Suggestion prior to judging without notice to entrant.
All submitted Name Suggestions become the property of Sponsor. Sponsor may, but is not required to, use any of the Name Suggestions or permutations of any of them.
