By submitting a Photo as part of an entry in this Contest, each entrant represents and warrants that: the entrant is the person who prepared the food shown in the Photo; no laws were broken in the creation of the Photo; the Photo is entrant’s own original creation; the entrant has all rights necessary to submit the Photo; and the Photo does not violate the rights of any other person or company (including but not limited to privacy and copyrights), does not defame, libel, or slander anyone or any entity, does not contain unsafe, offensive, indecent, vulgar, obscene or profane content, and in no other way violates any applicable laws.

Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify those entries that contain offensive or inappropriate material, that are deemed by the Sponsor to be unsuitable, or that Sponsor believes would subject it to a claim or litigation.  Each entrant agrees to indemnify, defend and hold Sponsor harmless against any and all liabilities, losses, damages, claims, debts, investigations, fines, penalties, costs, expenses and settlements (including attorneys’ fees and costs of litigation, settlement, judgment, interest and penalties) arising out of or related to a breach of the foregoing representations and warranties.

Entrants otherwise will retain all rights to their Photos, and the publication of their photos as part of this Contest will not limit their use and ability to further market the Photos.
