A: Yes. Make sure to include all details as shown on the Sponsorship Entry Form. An additional $25 entry fee to go along with the submission will be required. You may pen the letter on someone's behalf but, in the case of sponsoring, it will not be considered a second entry for you, so you will not be disqualified from the contest. Or, the sponsored individual can pen their own letter and have you submit payment on their behalf. People can sponsore multiple entries. If more than one entry is received for an individual or an address, only the first entry will be valid. (No one will be disqualified for being sponsored after the fact.)
Q: Is this competition legal?
A: Absolutely! This competition was responsibly planned and checked by AGLC (Alberta Gaming and liquor commission). Also, the RCMP confirms this competition does not contravene any law.
Q: Will you be releasing details about the number of entries, etc.?
A: Yes, once the contest is complete all statistics and final accounting (donations and few totals subject to accounting and legal reviews) will be presented to contestants and much of the general information will be made public.
Q: Why hasn’t the number of entries received so far been divulged?
A: The legal advisers indicated that the numbers not be shared until after the close of the contest. In the words of Alla’s lawyer, “$25 is not a purchase of shares into a company, and she does not have to put out shareholder reports. This is a competition with a final result at hand one way or another”.
Q: What would result if Alla, herself, does not comply with the terms set out for the competition?
A: Charges by the prosecutors office would be made against her, as per RCMP officers to her lawyer statement.
Q: What else should I know?
A: Before entering the contest, please read the contest Terms and Conditions
