Contest information

Our 12 Days and Ways to #EatAlbertaFirst Instagram contest prizes will be provided from December 9 – 20, 2019. 

Our goal is to increase awareness of Alberta as a food destination, to showcase our amazing partners throughout the province and to engage Alberta food lovers in our community.

Per Instagram rules, this is in no way sponsored, administered, or associated with Instagram, Inc. By entering, entrants confirm they are 16+ years of age, release Instagram of responsibility, and agree to Instagram’s terms of use.

How to enter

There is no purchase required. To enter the contest, entrants must like our post, follow our account, follow our sponsoring partner for the day and tag someone they’d like to #eatalbertafirst with in their post. To be valid, entries must be received by midnight MDT of each day from the contest period. 

There’s no limit. You get an entry for each friend you tag on any given day throughout the contest dates. Entries are accepted for each day of the contest. If you attempt or are suspected of attempting to use robotic, automatic, programmed or other entry methods not authorized by these rules, it shall be deemed as tampering and will violate your entries.

Employees of AFT, as well as employees’ immediate family (father/mother, brother/sister, son/daughter) or persons living under the same roof are not eligible to enter the Contest.

Awarding of prizes

Each day at noon MDT – the day following each prize announcement – winners will be chosen randomly. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received each day.

We will contact winners by direct message (DM) on Instagram. Prizes emailed or mailed to the address provided. If a winner cannot be reached within three days following the first attempt of contact or if the winner declines the prize, the prize shall be forfeited and AFT has the right, at its sole discretion, to select another winner.
