KTLA-TV, 5800 Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles, California 90028.

From time to time, KTLA-TV will announce a “Drone 5” contest on the air. Unless the contest is governed by a separate set of official rules, each contest begins the moment it is announced on KTLA-TV for the first time, and ends when the winner is announced on KTLA-TV, Channel 5, or two hours after the original contest announcement, whichever comes first.

The computer clock of Sponsor’s webmaster is the official timekeeping device of the contest.

When a “Drone 5” contest is announced on KTLA-TV, Channel 5, it will be accompanied by a question posed to the viewing audience, asking what location is being shown by the Drone 5 aerial vehicle. To enter, send a response to the question posed in the contest announcement via e-mail to drone5@ktla.com, with your answer in the body of the message. You must have a valid e-mail account in order for your entry to be eligible. Incomplete entries will be disqualified. Copies or other mechanical reproductions, facsimiles, entries containing technical or electronic reproductions, entries containing attached files are not eligible and will be rejected. In the event of a dispute regarding the identity of an entrant, the holder of the e-mail account will be deemed the person who submitted the entry. Received entries become the exclusive property of Sponsor and will not be returned or acknowledged. Limit one entry per person/e-mail address and per household. Multiple entries from the same person, email address, or household will be disqualified if discovered by Sponsor. Sponsor is not responsible for entries that are lost, late, misaddressed or misdirected due to technical or computer failures, errors or data loss of any kind, lost or unavailable internet connections, or failed incomplete, garbled or deleted computer or networks transmissions, inability to access the website or online service, or any other technical error or malfunction. Sponsor reserves the right to delay any contest announcement or not make a contest announcement if breaking news or other unanticipated events prevent the announcement from occurring as scheduled. If such changes occur, they will be posted on the Sponsor’s contest website.

This contest is open only to legal residents of California and Nevada who reside within the counties of Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino, Riverside, Ventura, Kern and Inyo in California, and Esmeralda County, Nevada, who are age 18 or older as of the announcement of each individual contest, and who have not won any other prize from KTLA within the 60 days preceding the announced contest. Employees of other media companies (including television and radio), Sponsor and its parent corporation, subsidiaries, or affiliates, and such employees’ immediate family or household members are not eligible to enter or win the contest.

For each contest, the first entry received at the drone5@ktla.com e-mail account that contains the correct answer to the question posed in the original contest announcement will be declared the winner. Sponsor will determine in its sole discretion whether an entrant has correctly identified the location is being shown by the Drone 5 aerial vehicle. Sponsor will attempt to contact the potential winner by e-mail.

If the selected winner is not eligible, declines the prize, does not provide required identification or sign and return required documents by the deadlines established by Sponsor, or does not respond within 48 hours of the initial notification attempt, Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify the winner. No alternates will be selected in these contests.

If Sponsor terminates the contest, Sponsor will announce the termination on air. Information submitted in entries, including entrant’s phone number, name, address, e-mail address, etc., may be used by KTLA-TV for marketing or promotional purposes. Sponsor reserves the right to prohibit any entrant from participating in the Contest if, at its sole discretion, Sponsor finds such entrant to be tampering with the entry process or if such individual repeatedly shows a disregard for, or attempts to circumvent, these Official Rules, or acts: (a) in a manner the Sponsor determines to be not fair or equitable; (b) with an intent to annoy, threaten or harass any other entrant or Sponsor; or (c) in any other disruptive manner.

Neither the failure of Sponsor to insist upon or enforce strict performance of any provision of these Official Rules nor the failure, delay or omission by Sponsor in exercising any right with respect to any term of these Official Rules, will be construed as a waiver or relinquishment to any extent of Sponsor’s right to assert or rely upon any such provision or right in that or any other instance. If there is any conflict between any term of these Official Rules and the entry or marketing materials used in connection with the contest, the terms of the Official Rules will govern.
