  1. Entry methods

This competition consists of two parts independent of one another: a photo contest and an advergame, both of which can be accessed via the getvertical.salewa.com website.

Users may enter both parts of the competition.

When users access the website for the first time, they will be able to register by entering their personal details and a password into the registration form. These details must be used when subsequently accessing the website. Alternatively, users may select which of the 2 parts of the competition they wish to enter and register once they have entered.

 

PART 1 - PHOTO CONTEST

In order to participate in the photo contest, the user must:

  • Log into the salewa.com website.
  • Go to the section related to the part 1 photo contest;
  • Upload a photograph in the style of #puremountain (the uploaded photograph must be in JPEG format and be no larger than 5MB. The uploaded photograph must also depict the entrant. It may also depict third parties provided that the entrant has acquired the consent of the said third parties to the use of their image. The entrant assumes responsibility for the veracity of the details provided when uploading the photograph).
  • Describe, in a short caption of no more than 250 characters, the meaning of “#Salewagetvertical”. The user has the option to indicate the altitude and exact location at which the photograph was taken;
  • Select the experience that the user would like to win (the panel of judges will not be required to consider this preference when selecting the winners).
  • Log in or register if the user has not already done so;
  • Confirm entry in the competition.

 

The photographs and their accompanying captions will be made visible in the competition gallery within 48 hours of their being uploaded, subject to approval by the moderators. They may be voted for until the closing date of this competition. Every voter, once registered and logged in, may vote up to 10 times per day with a limit of one vote per day for each photograph. Voters may, if they wish, invite their friends to register and enter the competition. Doing so will not invalidate the entrant's results.

Each user may enter the competition with one photograph only, although it will be possible to replace the photograph that was originally uploaded with another over the duration of the competition period. Any votes won by the first photograph will be cancelled and the replacement photograph will start from zero votes.

At the end of the voting period, the photographs will be arranged in descending order based on the number of votes obtained and the first 150 photographs in the rankings will be judged by the panel of judges, which will decide on the winners as set out in point 7.

 

  • Entry limits

It will only be possible to enter one photograph into this part of the competition. The user may decide to replace an uploaded photograph with another, although the user will lose any votes accumulated by the first photograph.

 

  • Voting limits

Each voting user, once logged into the site, may vote on up to 10 photographs per day (with a day being understood as lasting from 00:00:01 to 23:59:59 on the same date). Any votes not made over the course of a day will not be carried over and added to those for the next day, and will therefore be lost. On the following day, the user will have a maximum of 10 votes.

 

PART 2 – ADVERGAME + INSTANT WIN

To participate in the advergame, the user must first register/log in to the getvertical.salewa.com website and then:

  • Go to the dedicated section containing the "Hold on" advergame, the theme of which is mountain climbing;
  • Play level 1 of the advergame.

Regardless of whether the user completes level 1, the user will be asked to complete an initial registration or to log in. After that, the user will be able to play level 2 of the advergame.

Once the user has completed the game, he or she will be entered into the random draw for the prizes on offer in part 2.

 

If the user is a winner, he or she will be asked to:

  • confirm the email address that was given when initially registering in the first phase of participation;
  • complete a form providing any missing information– first name, last name, gender, date of birth, preferred mountain activity – and accept the competition rules.
  • Confirm the information entered.

 

If the user fails to complete level 2 or is not a winner in the Instant Win stage of the advergame, he or she will be given the opportunity to gain an "extra life" by completing one of the following activities:

  • Completing the issued form with the his or her personal details– first name, last name, gender, date of birth, preferred mountain activity – and accepting the competition rules.
  • Signing up for the Salewa newsletter (this option will only be available to users who are not already registered);
  • Sharing his or her own experience of the game on Facebook.

The user will gain an extra life for each of the options listed above.

Once the user has an extra life, he or she will once again be able to take part in the random draw for the prizes on offer via the Instant Win format.

In the event that the entrant completes the levels successfully before losing all of his or her lives, the lives may not be carried over or used on subsequent days.

 

Once the user has used up all his or her lives, they will be invited to return to the getvertical.salewa.com website the next day to be able to play the advergame again.

 

  • Entry limits

Each user will be able to play one new game with three lives each day.

 

  1. Method for awarding prizes

PART 1 - PHOTO CONTEST

Appropriate and approved photographs will be arranged in descending order in the 'Photowall' section of the website, based on the number of votes obtained. The first 150 photographs in the rankings will be judged by the panel of judges.

A panel of judges appointed by the promoter will judge the first 150 photographs in the rankings created at the close of voting according to the following criteria:

  1. Artistic value, originality of subject and relevance to the "#Salewagetvertical" theme, where #Salewagetvertical is understood to mean an authentic relationship with the mountain.

  2. Relevance and emotions triggered by the comment accompanying the photograph;
  3. Quality of the photo.

PART 2  ADVERGAME + INSTANT WIN

Each entrant may be awarded more than one prize.

 

N.B. For the purpose of awarding the prizes, the promoter will ask winners for a copy of their identity cards or valid documents and, if the details entered when registering via the online form do not correspond with those on the document provided, the prize will not be awarded.

The promoter reserves the right to request identity documents from both entrants and voters in order to perform the necessary identity checks on each user and guarantee the compliance of the competition.

 

The winner may not challenge the prize awarded or request the corresponding value in cash or the exchange/substitution for any reason. Nevertheless, in the event that the promoter is not able to deliver the prize won, it reserves the right to substitute the prizes announced with prizes of an equal or higher value (circ 28/03/2002, point 9.6). Winners may not claim any compensation following any damage arising from the acceptance and/or use of the prize.

 

  • Runners-up

The organiser may not be held liable for any errors in the communication of the email address on the part of the winner.
