Create and Submit an Entry: During the Entry Period, Participant will need to use his or her Twitter account.

  2. During the Entry Period, tweet the photo or video from Participant’s Twitter account using the tag “@AMDGaming” and the hashtags “#AMDRedTeam” and “SweepstakesEntry.”


Following these steps will earn Participant one (1) entry into the Sweepstakes (“Entry”).  ENTRIES WILL NOT BE JUDGED.  Failure to include the required tag and hashtags will void the Entry. Any other language or information in the tweet included by a Participant is deemed to be part of the Entry, and Participant gives Sponsor, its designees, successors, assigns and licensees a royalty-free, irrevocable, non-exclusive worldwide license to use, reproduce, modify, publish, create derivative works from, and display the Entry and all elements embodied therein, along with the Participant’s name and/or Twitter account handle, in any manner, in whole or in part, on a worldwide basis, and to incorporate it into other works, in any form, media or technology now known or later developed, including for advertising, promotional, marketing and other purposes, without further payment or consideration, notification or permission. If requested, Participant will sign any documentation required for Sponsor or its designees successors, assignees and licensees to make use of the non-exclusive rights Participant is granting to use the Entry. Released Parties (as defined below) are not responsible for lost, late, stolen, incomplete, inaccurate, invalid, un-intelligible, garbled, delayed or misdirected Entries, all of which will be void.

To the extent a Participant adds additional language or information in the retweet, the Entry must comply with the following content guidelines (“Guidelines”). Entries that do not fully comply with these Guidelines will be deemed void and the Participant may be disqualified from the Sweepstakes:


  1. The Entry may not contain material that violates or infringes another’s rights, including but not limited to privacy, publicity or intellectual property rights, or that constitutes copyright or trademark infringement.

Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any Entries that it finds unlawful or in violation of these Official Rules, in Sponsor’s sole discretion.  Multiple Participants are not permitted to share the same Twitter account. Any attempt by any Participant to obtain more than the stated number of Entries by using multiple/different Twitter accounts, identities, registrations, and logins, or any other methods will void that Participant’s Entry and that Participant may be disqualified.  Use of any automated system to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification. In the event of a dispute as to any Entry, the authorized account holder of the email address used to register for Participant’s Twitter account used will be deemed to be the Participant. The authorized account holder is the natural person assigned the email address used to register for the Twitter account, as that is determined by the Internet access provider,  service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address. The potential winner may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder. Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, invalid, illegible or misdirected Entries, which may be disqualified, or for any error, human, technical or otherwise.


5. Winner Selection: Sponsor will randomly select one (1) potential winner from all eligible Entries received during the Entry Period, on or around the date set forth in Section 4.  Odds of winning depend upon the number of eligible Entries received.

The potential winner may be required to sign and return an Affidavit of Eligibility, Liability and Publicity Release ("Affidavit"), which must be received by Sponsor within one (1) day of the date notice or attempted notice is sent in order to claim his or her prize. If a potential winner fails or refuses to execute and return the Affidavit within the required time period, fails to provide any requested information within the required time period, or the prize or notification is returned as undeliverable, the potential winner will be disqualified and forfeits the prize.  Receiving a prize is contingent upon compliance with these Official Rules. If for any reason a potential winner is disqualified, the prize may be awarded to an alternate potential winner, selected by random drawing from among remaining eligible Entries, even if the disqualified potential winner may have been publicly announced. Only one (1) alternate drawing will be held, after which the prize will remain un-awarded. Failure to comply with any term or condition in these Official Rules may result in disqualification at Sponsor’s sole discretion.
