What You Need To Know:
We love running contests for you guys and we want to be as clear as possible on how you enter and the prize is awarded. Please read the nuts and bolts below and if you’ve still got any questions just contact firstname.lastname@example.org .
We know that there are ASOS lovers all around the world, but this Contest is only open to full-time or part-time students at a tertiary institution in the USA, aged 18 or over and, importantly, only those who have created their own design either on campus or online. So that we are completely fair, anyone professionally connected to ASOS or a Participating University who is not a student is not allowed to enter.
You don’t have to buy anything to take part in this contest but you may need internet access.

We at ASOS want you to unleash your creativity but also believe that it is important to respect other people’s creative efforts so you must therefore ensure you comply with the Design Rules, which include the following rules:
Only submit designs that you have designed yourself;
Do not upload designs (including your own) that been previously published or won an award or prize; and
Ensure your design does not contain anything which may infringe or violate the rights of any third party, including but not limited to, ownership, copyrights, trademarks, patents, logos, licensing rights, rights of publicity or privacy or any other intellectual property rights.

If you would like us to remove the design after the end of the term of this licence, our duty to do so will be limited to those channels still reasonably under our control.

If any moral rights or similar right (including, without limitation, droit moral) arise anywhere in the world in respect of the design, you agree:
to waive such rights in ASOS’ favor;
not to assert such rights; and
to exercise such rights against any third party only as ASOS shall request and in accordance with ASOS’ directions.
You also agree to promptly execute and deliver such documents and perform such acts as ASOS may reasonably request for the purposes of confirming or giving full effect to the assignment granted under these Official Rules .
By entering, you agree that your design is your own original work and does not infringe the intellectual property rights of any other party. In order to be selected as a verified winner, you will be required to sign a waiver to confirm that the design you submitted into the Contest is your own original work.
If your submission is not your own work and we receive a claim from a third party who claims the design is their own, you agree that you will assist ASOS to resolve this matter, and if necessary, satisfy any claims directly with that third party.

To vote go to us.asos.com/discover/students/wear-it-mean-it , locate the finalist design you would like to vote for, and click “Vote”.
You can only vote once during the Voting Period.
People who are students but have not yet registered as a student with ASOS will be given the opportunity to do so.
Winner Selection: The winners will be selected depending on the number of votes a design receives. The design with the most votes will be the 1st place winner, 2nd place will be awarded to the next design with the most votes and so on to 20th place. Notwithstanding the number of votes a design has received, each design and entrant must have fully complied with these Official Rules in order to be eligible for a prize. If we determine that any of the top 20 designs or entrants have not complied with these Official Rules, the entrant will be disqualified and the prize will be awarded to the next placed compliant entrant. If there is a tie with any of the designs where they have the same number of votes these entries will be entered into a random draw, conducted by an independent Promotional verification service, to determine the higher placed winner.
Contacting the Winners: We’ll contact the winners via an email within 15 working days after the Voting Period ends. If you are one of our lucky winners, you must respond to us within 28 days otherwise the prize will be awarded to the next placed compliant entrant.
Moderation : We will reject and/or remove at any time (without judging), including during the Voting Period, entries which in our reasonable opinion:
Contain any content that is likely to be considered offensive by us or could reflect negatively the name, reputation, or goodwill of ASOS or any brand partner;
Include trademarks, logos, or copyrighted material not owned by you or used without the right holder's prior written permission (including famous names, company names, etc.);
Defames, misrepresents, or insult other people or companies, including, but not limited to ASOS (including its partners);
Promotes any political agenda;
Contains religious images or references; and/or
Otherwise breaches the Design Rules us.asos.com/discover/marketing-terms-and-conditions/wear-it-mean-it-participant/
Verification : After the Voting Period, ASOS may carry out verification checks to ensure the winners have fully complied with these Official Rules before awarding the prizes. As part of the verification process, you may be required to provide evidence of how you (or your friends and family) promoted your design.
If you are one of our lucky winners, we’ll try and send you the prize as soon as we can - and within no more than 28 days from acceptance of the prize.
We’re sorry but you can’t transfer a prize to someone else or exchange it for something else or a cash alternative.
If, for reasons we can’t control, the prize is no longer available, we’ll offer you an alternative prize which we hope you’ll still love but which will definitely be of equal or greater value!
