Terms of Selection and Prizes
3.1. All participants will get a chance to win prizes as long as their photos posted for this campaign on Instagram are visible to the OPPO team. (Photos must be posted with public accounts in order to be viewed by the OPPO team).

OPPO will contact the users to distribute prizes on a bi-weekly basis.
3.2. All photos that are visible to the public on Instagram will be reviewed and pre-screened by OPPO editors. The screened entries are then reviewed by a team of professional photographers. These photographers will choose the winners, and their decisions are final.

Each photographer retains the copyright of his or her images in accordance with and subject to Clause 4 below, and proper credit lines will be attributed to each photographer when exhibited or screened anywhere (provided that any inadvertent failure to do so shall not be a breach of these Rules).

Upon being contacted, you must promptly submit the original file for your submission, fill in your personal information as requested, and submit your declaration of copyright and authorization as well as any other documents requested.

By participating in this Project, you agree and acknowledge that all personal information you submit is true and accurate, including your name, phone number, email address, and any other contact addresses you provide for the purposes of communication about prize.

The sponsor assumes no responsibility for any such outcome and will not reissue prize in such cases. Upon receiving their prizes, winners will be expected to confirm completion of delivery by notifying the distributor directly, except where abnormal circumstances prevent this. OPPO shall not be liable for any accidents or damages suffered by winners relating to the use or receipt of prizes.
