*One representative from each winning ad team will receive a one-night trip to attend a single day at TED2013, in February 2013 in Long Beach, California. Trip includes round-trip coach airfare from major gateway airport nearest winner’s residence and single-occupancy hotel accommodations. Taxes, meals, gratuities, travel upgrades, or any other expenses not specifically listed here are the responsibility of the representative. Travel and accommodations are subject to availability; certain restrictions may apply. Sponsor is not liable for delays, cancellation or unforeseen events related to the flights. Representative will be solely responsible for obtaining valid identification relating to acceptance and use of the travel prize packages. If in the judgment of Sponsor, air travel is not required due to winner’s proximity to prize location, ground transportation will be substituted for round-trip air travel at Sponsor’s sole discretion. Sponsor will not replace any lost, mutilated, or stolen tickets, travel vouchers or certificates.
