Individuals may send more than one story and/or photo to ARI but will only be entered into the free drawing once per household.
STORY AND PHOTO SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
Qualified entries must depict individuals with an autism spectrum disorder. All entries are final upon submission and become property of ARI. Submitted images become property of ARI – images (digital, printed, etc.) will not be returned to entrants. Entry materials may not contain brand names or trademarks. ARI reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to reject and/or disqualify any entries, subjects, or related materials that ARI deems to be nude, obscene, defamatory, profane, offensive, lewd, pornographic, false, misleading, deceptive, or otherwise inconsistent with its editorial standards, audience expectations, or reputational interests or that ARI believes may violate any applicable law or regulation or the rights of any third party. ARI reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to verify any element of any entry or related materials, request additional information and to disqualify any entrant whose participation may subject the contest, ARI, or customers to controversy, negative publicity, scorn, or ridicule.
By submitting a story and/or photo, you are giving ARI permission to use the image on its website, promotional eblasts, and printed publications. ARI has rights to use all photos submitted; this applies to all entries regardless of drawing status (ie, photos may be used at ARI’s discretion whether they receive a gift card as the result of a drawing or not). Winners will be selected by random drawing from among all entries performed by ARI staff. Drawings are final, unappealable and binding in all respects.

USE OF PHOTOGRAPHS AND STORIES IS NOT GUARANTEED TO ANY ENTRANTS, INCLUDING PRIZE WINNERS
Appearance of submissions on ARI promotions and its website is subject to ARI’s sole discretion. ARI is not responsible for any circumstances that make it impractical or impossible to use any photos submitted or to fulfill this element of the prize, which has no retail value, for contest winners. If it becomes impractical or impossible to fulfill this element, ARI will have fulfilled its prize obligation by having provided the remaining elements of the prize. ODDS of winning depend upon the number of eligible entries received.
