1. Contestants hereby agree to submit their entries under the following terms and conditions: (i) that FFRF may use any ideas, concepts, or material, in whole or in part, contained in an entry; (ii) that all materials submitted become the property of FFRF and can be used by FFRF for any purpose whatsoever, including commercial use, without compensation; (iii) that the contestant has obtained all rights, permissions, and licenses necessary to use the entry for any purpose; (iv) that no entry or any part thereof infringes any trademark or copyright or otherwise violates anyone's right of privacy or publicity; and (v) that the contestant indemnifies and holds harmless FFRF from any claims, suits, losses, damages, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) that arise from any breach of the terms and conditions.
2. FFRF reserves the right in its sole discretion to terminate, modify, or suspend the contest at any time. All interpretations of the rules and decisions by FFRF are final. FFRF reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any individual it believes to be tampering with the entry process, voting process, or operation of the website; to be acting in violation of the official rules; or to be acting in a disruptive or negative manner.
3. No purchase is necessary to enter. Becoming a member of FFRF, while a great way to show your support for state/church separation, does not confer any advantage in this contest.
4. Arrangements for the fulfillment of all prizes will be made by FFRF, which reserves the right to substitute any prize for any reason that FFRF deems necessary. All prizes are non-transferable. Upon receipt of any part of the prize, prize recipients are required to comply with any and all applicable federal, state, and local laws, rules, and regulations. All expenses, including taxes, on receipt and use of prizes are the sole responsibility of the winner.
5. Entries must be received no later than July 31 of this current year to be considered for FFRF's convention. Entries will be accepted year-round and deadlines will be updated annually.
6. An eligible entry must contain the contestant's original ideas and language, with any quotations properly credited. Invocations must be appropriate for posting on FFRF's website. FFRF retains sole discretion as to what constitutes inappropriate content and an eligible entry.
7. There is no limit on the number of entries that can be submitted per person, provided that each entry is from a unique government meeting and that the content of the invocation is unique. Contestants who jointly submit an entry shall be treated as a single contestant by FFRF, with any prizes being shared.
