Romance of the Far Fur Country Contest



The Romance of the Far Fur Country contest  (the “Contest”) is sponsored by Hudson’s Bay Company (“Hudson’s Bay”).  The Contest takes place between 12:00:01am ET April 5, 2016 AND 11:59:59pm ET April 6, 2016 (the “Contest Period”).


There are two prizes, each consisting of a pair of tickets to a Toronto Silent Film Festival 2016 screening of the film Romance of the Far Fur Country at Innis Town Hall in Toronto, on Tuesday, April 12, 2016 at 7:00pm ET.  The approximate value of each prize is $30.

The prizes are not exchangeable, transferable or convertible to cash and must be accepted as awarded.


To enter the Contest, go to www.twitter.com/hbcheritage. Follow @hbcheritage and retweet our tweet about the Contest.

You may enter only once. Any use of robotic, automatic, programmed, spambot or entry methods not authorized by these Official Rules, will be deemed as tampering and will void all of your entries. Only one e-mail address and account may be used to enter the Contest.  In the event of a dispute regarding the identity of an entrant, the entry will be deemed made by the authorized account holder of the e-mail address associated with the submission (i.e. the person who is assigned to that e-mail address by an Internet access provider, on-line service provider or other organization responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domains associated with the submitted e-mail address).  Should it be discovered that an entrant is using the aid of computer programs to enter, that entrant will be disqualified from the Contest; and Hudson’s Bay reserves the right to disqualify all such entrants from future contests conducted by Hudson’s Bay without further notice.

All entries must be received by 11:59:59pm ET on April 6, 2016.


Quebec residents are not eligible to participate.

To be eligible, you must be a resident of Canada (excluding Quebec) and have reached the age of majority in your province or territory of residence as of the date that you post your submission. You are not eligible if, at any point during the Contest Period you are, or you live with, an employee, representative or agent of Hudson’s Bay, its affiliates or licensees.


A random draw will be held in Toronto, Ontario from all eligible entries received during the Contest Period.  The selected entrants will be contacted by direct message and/or e-mail, and before being declared a winner will be required to correctly answer, unaided, a time limited mathematical skill-testing question. Winners will be able to collect their tickets at the box office half an hour before the screening time, on Tuesday, April 12, 2016. 

If a selected entrant: (a) cannot be contacted by telephone and/or e-mail within one day; (b) fails to correctly answer the skill-testing question; (c) declines the prize; or (d) otherwise fails to comply with the Official Rules, then the selected entrant will be disqualified and an alternate entrant will be selected from among the remaining eligible entries. The process described above will continue until the prizes have been awarded or there are no more eligible entries, whichever comes first.


By submitting an entry, you agree to be bound by these Official Rules and all decisions of Hudson’s Bay which are final and binding on all participants without right of appeal.

Neither Hudson’s Bay nor any of its affiliates will bear any responsibility or liability for: (a) submissions which are lost, stolen, delayed, destroyed, or illegible, incomplete or otherwise improperly completed; (b) technical malfunctions, human or technical error, printing errors, lost, delayed or garbled data or any combination thereof; (c) the loss, theft or misuse of the prize; or (d) any property damage, personal injury or misfortune in any way attributable to this Contest or the prize.
