Winner is solely responsible for all costs and expenses not specified herein, including, but not limited to, meals, tips, hotel incidentals and additional ground transportation.

If Grand Prize winner lives within 150 miles of venue of the 95th Academy Awards in Los Angeles (as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion), he/she will receive, in lieu of air transportation, roundtrip local ground transportation between Grand Prize winner’s residence and hotel. Accommodations are for two (2) adults sharing one (1) room. Grand Prize Trip is for the winner and his/her travel guest, is non-transferable and cannot be extended.
