Winning a prize is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth herein. The Sweepstakes is sponsored by Guru Denim LLC, 500 West 190th Street, Suite 300 Gardena, CA 90248 (“Sponsor”).

The odds of winning a prize will be determined by the number of eligible entries received.
The Sweepstakes is open to individual entrants who are legal residents of, and physically located within, any of the fifty (50) United States, who are at least eighteen (18) years of age or older as of the date of entry (or 19 if resident of AL or NE, or 21 if resident of MS) (each, an “Eligible Entrant”). All directors, managers, officers and employees of Sponsor and its affiliates, sales representatives, distributors, licensees, agents, advertising and Sweepstakes agencies, and each of their immediate family members (spouses, parents, children, and siblings and their respective spouses), and those living in the same household as each, are not eligible to participate in the Sweepstakes. The Sweepstakes is subject to all applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations. Void where prohibited.
The Sweepstakes entry period begins on 1:00 pm Pacific Standard Time (“PST”) on January 27, 2022 and ends on 11:59 pm PST on February 3, 2022 (the “Entry Period”). Sponsor’s computer shall be the official time-keeping device for the Sweepstakes.
How to Enter Sweepstakes.
Sponsor will hold a total of one (1) random drawings on or about February 7, 2022 from all eligible Sweepstakes entries received by the Sponsor during the Entry Period set forth to select one (1) potential Eligible Entrant winner in the Sweepstakes. Receiving a prize is contingent upon compliance with these Official Rules.
The potential Eligible Entrant winner will be notified by Sponsor approximately two (2) days following the random drawing via Instagram direct message to verify eligibility and accept the prize. If the Sponsor is unsuccessful in its attempt to reach and speak directly with the potential winner within two (2) days of the initial notification attempt, then that potential winner may be disqualified.
The potential Eligible Entrant winner will be required to execute and return an affidavit of eligibility/liability release and, where lawful, a publicity release (collectively, the “Affidavit/Release”) and other reasonably requested information to verify eligibility within seven (7) days of date of issuance. The Eligible Entrant winner is fully responsible for any and all applicable federal, state, and local taxes associated with the prize. The Eligible Entrant winner understands that the Sponsor or its respective agents may advise the United States Internal Revenue Service of the value of the prize awarded in the form of an IRS Form 1099, or otherwise. The Eligible Entrant understands that, prior to being entitled to receive any prize, and prior to receiving any prize, such Eligible Entrant will be required to first provide Sponsor with all of Eligible Entrant’s applicable taxpayer identification information and other required and reasonably requested tax and tax-related documentation (e.g., IRS Form W-9, government-issued photo identification, etc.). If the winner does not have a SSN/FEIN and therefore cannot provide one on the Affidavit/Release and does not submit a complete and correct Form W-9, the Sponsor will have the right, if required by applicable law, to withhold federal income tax according to applicable federal tax law and submit that withheld amount to the U.S. Treasury on the winner’s behalf, and the winner will receive a prize that is net of the federal income tax withheld. If such potential winner declines in writing to accept a prize, such required information or documents are not returned within the specified time period, prize or prize notification is returned as undeliverable, the Sponsor is unable to contact a potential winner within a reasonable time period, or a potential winner is not otherwise in compliance with these Official Rules, the potential winner will forfeit the prize. In the event that a potential Eligible Entrant winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the applicable prize to an alternate Eligible Entrant winner by random drawing from among all remaining Eligible Entrant entries. If necessary, there will be three (3) alternate drawings, after which the prize will remain unawarded.
Sponsor will award one (1) $1,000 True Religion Gift Card in an approximate retail value of One Thousand U.S. Dollars ($1,000) to the Eligible Entrant winner of the random drawing in this Sweepstakes. Total Approximate Retail Value of all prizes is one thousand U.S. dollars ($1,000). Gift card prize is subject to the terms and conditions of the gift card. Prizes are awarded “as is” without any warranty, and any warranties, whether express or implied, including the warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose, are hereby disclaimed by the Sponsor. No interest will be paid on any cash prize. All costs and expenses associated with prize acceptance and use not specified herein as being provided are the sole responsibility of the winner. Prizes that require delivery will be delivered only to a valid physical address within the United States that the winner provides to the Sponsor or its representative at the time of winner notification. Prizes are non-transferable and non-assignable, with no cash redemptions or substitutions except at Sponsor’s sole discretion. There will be no substitutions for any prize except by Sponsor who reserves the right to substitute a prize with one of comparable or greater value at their sole discretion. Other restrictions may apply.
