Please do not proceed if you do not satisfy these requirements at the time of entry. Entry into the Contest constitutes your (and your parent’s or legal guardian’s on your behalf if you are under the legal age of majority in your province of residence) full and unconditional acceptance of and agreement to be legally bound by these Official Contest Rules and Regulations (the “Contest Rules”).

1) ADMINISTRATION: The Contest is administered and operated by Hockey Canada (the “Contest Operator”). The decisions of the Contest Operator are final and binding in all matters as they relate to the Contest, including without limitation eligibility and/or disqualification of entries.

2) ELIGIBILITY: This contest (the “Contest”) is only open to Canadian citizens abroad and residents of Canada who (at the time of entry): (i) have reached the legal age of majority in their Province or Territory of residence, or (ii) are between the ages of thirteen (13) and the legal age of majority in their Province or Territory of residence (individually and collectively a “Minor”) provided any such Minor’s parent/legal guardian has: (a) consented to his/her participation in the Contest; and (b) accepted and agreed to be legally bound by these Contest Rules on the Minor’s behalf. Entrants cannot be employees, contractors, or agents of the Contest Operator or a member of the immediate families of an employee, contractor, agent or representative of the Contest Operator or any of their respective affiliates, agencies or prize suppliers. Participants under the age of majority in their Province or Territory of residence must provide contact information for a parent or guardian and that parent or guardian must claim the prize on their behalf. All entrants’ Instagram accounts must be set to “public” (i.e. an account where anyone can view or subscribe to your photos).

NOTE TO MINORS: The Contest Operator reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, on a random audit basis to contact a Minor’s parent/legal guardian for the purposes of verifying his/her: (i) agreement to be legally bound by these Contest Rules on the Minor’s behalf; (ii) consent to the Minor’s participation in the Contest; and/or (iii) consent to the collection of the Minor’s personal information. Failure of a Minor’s parent/legal guardian to complete any such required verification to the satisfaction of the Contest Operator may, in its sole and absolute discretion, result in disqualification of the Minor.

4) CONTEST PERIOD: The Contest begins at 8 a.m. ET on March 31, 2017 and ends on April 7, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. ET (the “Contest Period”).



To enter the Contest:

i) Follow Hockey Canada (@hockeycanada) on Instagram

ii) On each Team Canada game day during the Contest Period, Hockey Canada will instruct entrants to repost a photo;

iii) Entrants must repost the photo on Instagram, tag or mention @hockeycanada and include #WomensWorlds or #MondialFéminin in the caption

One entry per repost per Instagram account. Each reposted photograph that has been tagged @hockeycanada and #WomensWorlds/#MondialFéminin appropriately will constitute one entry.

Anyone found using multiple Instagram accounts to enter the Contest will be ineligible to participate in the Contest. Use of any automated, script, macro, robotic or other program(s) to enter or otherwise participate in this Contest is prohibited and will automatically result in disqualification from the Contest. In the event an entrant uploads inappropriate content or enters contrary to Instagram’s terms of use, in the sole discretion of the Contest Operator, he or she will be disqualified from the Contest. Anyone found “spamming” by posting multiple unrelated updates, comments or pictures or by sending large numbers of duplicates to #WomensWorlds/#MondialFéminin unrelated to the Contest will be disqualified from the Contest.

All entries are subject to verification. The Contest Operator reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to require proof of identity and/or eligibility in a form acceptable to the Contest Operator to participate in this Contest. Failure to provide such proof in a timely manner may result in disqualification. Proof of uploading an entry is not proof of receipt by Contest Operator.

If you are submitting a photo(s) depicting a person other than yourself, you must first obtain the permission of that person or of his/her parent or legal guardian if said person is under the age of majority in his/her province/territory of residence, to use their image. The onus for obtaining such consent rests entirely with the entrant, and the entrant indemnifies and holds harmless the Contest Operator against any and all claims arising out of the failure to obtain any such consent that may be required. The Contest Operator assumes no responsibility for obtaining such consent or for use of posted photographs.

By using Instagram through a wireless mobile device, standard text messaging and/or data rates may apply for each message sent or received from your device. Other charges may also be applied by your wireless carrier. Proof of participation by wireless mobile device is not a condition of entry.


Between March 31 and April 7, 2017, submissions will be reviewed by the Contest Operator.

All entrants whom have successfully fulfilled the Contest requirements will be entered into a random draw.

Two (2) winners, one for each prize, will be privately selected by the Contest Operator on April 10, 2017 (“Selection Date”) at noon ET.

Contest Operator or its designated representative will make a minimum of two (2) attempts on the Selection Date to contact the selected entrant by private message on Instagram. If the selected entrant is unable to be contacted (i.e. does not respond to the contact attempts) within one (1) business day of the Selection Date, then he/she may be disqualified at the Contest

Operator’s discretion, and the Contest Operator reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to select an alternate entrant (in which case the date of this new selection shall become the Selection Date, and the foregoing provisions of this section shall apply to the newly selected entrant). Before being declared a winner, the selected entrant must first correctly answer, unaided, a mathematical skill testing question to be administered by phone, email or mail at a predetermined mutually convenient time.

7) ODDS: Odds of winning a prize depend upon the number of eligible entries received during the Contest Period.
