True Blue Family Getaway Sweepstakes
Official Rules:
NO PURCHASE IS NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. A PURCHASE DOES NOT INCREASE THE CHANCES OF
WINNING.
Eligibility: The True Blue Family Getaway Sweepstakes (the “Sweepstakes”) is open only to those at least
18 years of age or older or the age of majority in their state of residence, whichever is older, and a legal
resident of the 50 United States or the District of Columbia at the time of entry. Entrant must, as of the
time of entry, own a WiFi-enable digital device capable of taking photos and/or videos. The Sweepstakes
is void where prohibited by law. Employees of WGN Continental Broadcasting Co. (“Sponsor”), Tribune
Media Company, their parents, affiliates, and subsidiaries, and the prize supplier, advertising agencies,
promotion agencies, and other entities involved with the development or administration of the
Sweepstakes (collectively the “Employees”), and immediate family members and/or those living in the
same household of Employees are not eligible to participate in the Sweepstakes. For purposes of this
Sweepstakes, “immediate family members” means grandparents, parents, siblings, spouse, children
(including stepchildren), and in laws.
Agreement to Official Rules: By participating, the entrant agrees to be fully unconditionally bound by
these Official Rules and represents and warrants that the entrant meets the eligibility requirements. In
addition, entrant agrees to accept the decisions of Sponsor as final and binding as they relate to the
conduct of this Sweepstakes.
Sweepstakes Period: Entries will be accepted online starting on Wednesday, May 22, 2019 at 6:00 am
PT and ending on Thursday, June 20, 2019 at 11:59 pm PT (the “Sweepstakes Period”).
How to Enter: During the Sweepstakes Period, submit a video (30 seconds or less) of some or all of the
people you deem to be your family in a favorite vacation spot (the “Video”) or a gif or photo of your
family in a favorite vacation spot (the “Photo”). The Photo/Video does not have to be new, and your
“vacation spot” can be anywhere you please—from Tahiti to your back yard. You may submit a
Photo/Video via social media or by direct submission to Sponsor. To submit a Photo/Video via social
media, upload via Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with the hashtags #TrueBlueWGNA and
#sweepstakes. To submit the Photo/Video directly to Sponsor, send the Photo/Video via email to
WGNAmericaPromotions@tribunemedia.com with your name and telephone number. Photo must be in
.jpg or .png format. Video must be in .mp4 or .mov format. Gif must be in .gif format. If you enter via
Instagram, the “Photos are Private” option in your Instagram account settings must be set to “OFF” so
your Instagram profile is public and thus viewable by the Sponsor. If you enter via Twitter, you must
have a non-private account. Sponsor is not responsible for Internet connections, unavailability of servers
or any other technical malfunctions that may interfere with an entrant’s ability to enter. Limit one entry
per person, per email address, and per social media account; subsequent entries from the same person,
email address, or social media account will be disqualified if discovered by Sponsor. If there is a dispute
over who submitted an entry via social media, the entry will be deemed to have been submitted by the
authorized account holder of the social media account used to enter. The authorized account holder of a
social media account is deemed to be the natural person who is assigned to the social media account by
the social media provider. If there is a dispute over who submitted an entry via email, the entry will be
deemed to have been submitted by the authorized account holder of the email account used to enter.
The authorized account holder of an email account is deemed to be the natural person who is assigned
to an email address by an Internet access provider, service provider, or online organization responsible
for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted email address. Received
email entries (but not the Photos/Videos) become the property of Sponsor and will not be returned.
Entries that are incomplete or do not adhere to the Official Rules may be disqualified at the sole
discretion of Sponsor.
Other Conditions of Entry: The Video must not contain any music. By entering, each entrant represents
and warrants that no laws were broken in the creation of the Photo/Video and that the Photo/Video is
his/her own original creation; the entrant owns or otherwise has all rights necessary to submit the
Photo/Video; the Photo/Video has not been copied in whole or in part from any other work; the
Photo/Video has not been previously published; the Photo/Video does not violate or infringe the rights
of any person or entity (including but not limited to privacy rights, trademarks, and copyrights); the
Photo/Video does not defame, libel, or slander anyone or any entity; and the Photo/Video does not
contain inappropriate, racist, offensive, indecent, vulgar, obscene or profane content. The entrant
further represents and warrants that the entrant has the permission of all recognizable individuals in the
Photo/Video to submit their image/performance in connection with submission of the Photo/Video in
the Sweepstakes. The entrant agrees to confirm that permission by securing releases from all such
individuals (and the parent or legal guardian of anyone who is a minor) upon request from the Sponsor.
Without limiting the foregoing, the Photo/Video may not show illegal or dangerous activity or nudity or
contain any content that, in the sole discretion of Sponsor, is detrimental to Sponsor’s brand. The
Photo/Video must be appropriate for display on WGN America or on a general interest website. Entries
that do not comply with these Official Rules or the foregoing representations and warranties will be
disqualified. Each entrant agrees to indemnify, defend and hold Sponsor, its parents, affiliates, and
subsidiaries and all of their employees, officers, and directors harmless against any and all liabilities,
losses, damages, claims, debts, investigations, fines, penalties, costs, expenses and settlements
(including attorneys’ fees and costs of litigation, settlement, judgment, interest and penalties) arising
out of or related to a breach or alleged breach of the foregoing representations and warranties. By
entering, each entrant (regardless of whether entrant wins) grants to the Sponsor a world-wide,
perpetual, non-revocable, royalty-free, non-exclusive license (and waives all moral rights in and to the
Photo/Video) to publish, display, and distribute his/her Photo/Video as well as derivative works based
thereon on WGN America, on the WGN America website and apps, on WGN America social media
accounts, and through any and all other media, now known or hereafter devised, in any manner related
to the Sweepstakes, without prior notice, approval or compensation. Entrants otherwise will retain all
rights to their respective Photos/Videos. If Sponsor determines, in its sole discretion and at any time
during the Sweepstakes, that any Photo/Video violates these requirements, is otherwise unsuitable,
offensive, or in poor taste, or violates these Official Rules, Sponsor reserves the right to remove and
disqualify the Photo/Video. Sponsor retains sole discretion as to whether any Photo/Video satisfies
these requirements and the Official Rules. During the Sweepstakes Period, certain Photos/Videos may
be selected by Sponsor to be featured in a promotional spot on air. This is not an indication that entrant
is a winner or is likely to be a winner. If so, Sponsor may request that entrant sign a release and secure
releases from every other recognizable individual in the Photo/Video before the Photo/Video is used.
Winner Selection, Notification, and Verification: After the close of the Sweepstakes Period, Sponsor will
select one winner by random drawing from among all eligible entries. The odds of winning depend on
the number of eligible entries. Please note, the quality of the Photo/Video will not play a role in the
determination of the winner. Sponsor will attempt to notify potential winner via social media or email,
and the potential winner must respond within 48 hours of initial notification attempt. Sponsor shall have
no liability for winner’s failure to receive notices because spam, junk email or other security settings or
for winner’s provision of incorrect or otherwise non-functioning contact information. If the potential
winner does not respond within 48 hours of initial notification attempt, is ineligible, is not in compliance
with the Official Rules, or fails to timely return a completed and executed declaration and release and
provide identification as required by the deadline set by Sponsor, the prize may be forfeited and an
alternate winner selected by random drawing from remaining eligible entries, time permitting.
Prize: There is one grand prize. The grand prize is a dream family vacation for up to four people,
provided in the form of a $5,000 travel voucher for airfare and lodging from Direct Travel. Voucher
subject to terms and conditions thereon. The approximate retail value (“ARV”) of the Grand Prize is
$5,000. The voucher is intended to cover the cost of a vacation for four, but it will not necessarily cover
the cost of a vacation anywhere in the world or for more than four people. If the vacation chosen by
winner costs more than the value of the voucher, winner will be responsible for the difference. Winner
and guests must travel on the same itinerary. All airline tickets are subject to flight variation, work
stoppages, and schedule or route changes. Lost, stolen or damaged airline tickets, travel vouchers or
certificates will not be replaced or exchanged. Sponsor will not be responsible for any cancellations,
delays, diversions or substitutions or any act or omissions whatsoever by the air carriers, transportation
companies, prize providers or any other persons providing any prize-related services. Winner and guest
are responsible for all necessary travel authorizations, medical and travel insurance (and all other
insurance), valid travel documents (i.e., valid photo ID) and all expenses and costs, not expressly listed
above, including, but not limited to, taxes, tips, meals, entertainment, transfers and transportation.
Winner and guest are responsible for transportation to and from his/her home to the airport. If the
guest of the winner is a minor, he/she must be accompanied at all times by his/her parent or legal
guardian. Certain restrictions and blackout dates may apply. Seat selection and timing of trip subject to
availability and confirmation of reservations. No refunds or credit for changes are allowed. Guest of
winner (and parent or legal guardian of guest who is a minor) must sign and return release prior to
accompanying winner on prize trip. No cash or other prize substitution will be permitted except
at Sponsor’s discretion. Winner may be required to present a major credit card at hotel check-in for
incidentals. Any and all prize-related expenses, including without limitation any and all federal, state,
and/or local taxes, will be the sole responsibility of the winner. No substitution of prize or
transfer/assignment of prize to others or request for the cash equivalent by the winner is permitted.
Properly claimed prize will be awarded, but in no event will Sponsor award more prizes than are
provided for in the Official Rules.
Publicity Release: By entering, entrant understands and agrees that Sponsor, anyone acting on behalf
of Sponsor, and Sponsor’s licensees, successors, and assigns, will have the right, where permitted by
law, to print, publish, broadcast, distribute, and use in any media now known or hereafter developed, in
perpetuity and throughout the world, without limitation, entrant’s name, portrait, picture, voice,

information, trade, advertising, public relations, and promotional purposes in connection with the
Sweepstakes without any further compensation, notice, review, or consent. Tennessee residents need

Terms & Conditions: Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to cancel, terminate, modify or
suspend the Sweepstakes should virus, bug, non-authorized human intervention, fraud, or other cause
beyond Sponsor’s control corrupt or affect the administration, security, fairness, or proper conduct of
the Sweepstakes. In such case, Sponsor will select the winner by random drawing from among all
eligible, non-suspect entries received prior to and/or after (if appropriate) the action taken
by Sponsor. If Sponsor terminates or modifies the Sweepstakes, it will announce its action on its
Facebook page, on Instagram and Twitter, and on the Sponsor website. Sponsor reserves the right, in its
sole discretion, to disqualify any individual who tampers or attempts to tamper with the entry process
or the operation of the Sweepstakes or website or violates these Official Rules. If a dispute arises
regarding compliance with these Official Rules, Sponsor may consider, in its sole discretion, data
reasonably available to Sponsor through information technology systems in Sponsor’s control, but
Sponsor shall not be obligated to consider any data or other information collected from any other
source. If there is any conflict between any term of these Official Rules and any advertising or entry
materials used in connection with the Sweepstakes, the terms of these Official Rules will govern. Neither
the failure of Sponsor to insist upon or enforce strict performance of any provision of these Official Rules
or the failure, delay or omission by Sponsor in exercising any right with respect to any term of these
Official Rules, will be construed as a waiver or relinquishment to any extent of Sponsor’s right to assert
or rely upon any such provision or right in that or any other instance.
Release: By entering, entrant agrees to release and hold harmless Sponsor, Tribune Media Company,
Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter and their parents, subsidiaries, and affiliates, and the prize supplier,

administration of the Sweepstakes, and all of their partners, representatives, agents, successors, assigns,
employees, officers, and directors from any liability, illness, injury, death, loss, litigation, claim, or
damage that may occur, directly or indirectly, whether caused by negligence or not, from: (a) entrant’s
participation in the Sweepstakes and/or entrant’s acceptance, possession, use, or misuse of the prize or
any portion thereof; (b) technical failures of any kind, including but not limited to the malfunction of any
computer, cable, network, hardware, or software, or other mechanical equipment; (c) the unavailability
or inaccessibility of any transmissions, telephone, or Internet service; (d) unauthorized human
intervention in any part of the entry process or the Promotion; or (e) electronic or human error in the
administration of the Promotion or the processing of entries.
Disputes: As a condition of entering, entrants agree: (a) under no circumstances will entrant be
permitted to obtain awards for, and entrant hereby waives all rights to claim punitive, incidental,
consequential, or any other damages, other than for actual out-of-pocket expenses; (b) all causes of
action arising out of or related to this Sweepstakes, or prize awarded, will be resolved individually,
without resort to any form of class action, and exclusively by the appropriate court in Cook County,
Illinois, to which participant submits to personal jurisdiction; and (c) any and all claims, judgments, and
awards will be limited to actual out-of-pocket costs incurred, excluding attorneys’ fees and court costs.
Some jurisdictions do not allow for limitations on the ability to pursue class action remedies, or certain
kinds of damages, and so these limitations may not apply to you. This Sweepstakes will be governed and
enforced pursuant to Illinois law, excluding choice of law provisions.
