Sponsor is not responsible for telecommunications, network, electronic, technical, or computer failures of any kind, or for entries that are stolen, misdirected, garbled or delayed by computer transmission. Entries that are late, inaccurate, incomplete, illegible, lost or corrupted are void and will not be accepted.

Taxes, if any, are the Winner’s sole responsibility. Prizes are not transferable and cannot be assigned. No prize or cash substitutes allowed, except at the discretion of the sponsor as set forth above.
All submissions will be reviewed and judged by Robert Brockway. Winner will be selected based upon how well each entrant describes his or her end-of-the-world scenario and on creativity. This is a contest of skill. Winner will be determined according to the judgments and discretion of the judge, whose decision is final.

Winner will be announced during the Live Chat with Robert Brockway on Unbound Worlds and notified by e-mail on or about April 9, 2010. The prizes will be awarded in the name of the Winner. Failure by the Prize Winner to respond to e-mail notification within one week, regardless of whether such failure is due to personal, physical, digital or any other reason, will result in forfeiture of the prize. The Winner will have to provide mailing addresses to receive the prizes.
