1. ELIGIBILITY: To enter you must be a legal resident of the United States or the District of Columbia and at least of the Minimum Age or older, located in the U.S. at the time of Entry, and have a current, active account on Twitter at the time of Entry. You are not eligible if you or any member of your immediate family or household (whether or not related) is an employee, officer or director of Sponsor, its bottlers or distributors, Administrator, their respective parents, affiliated and subsidiary companies (collectively, the "Sweepstakes Parties"), any of the Sweepstakes Parties’ other promotional partners, advertising or promotions agencies, suppliers of Sweepstakes materials, internet promotion developers, judging or administration organizations, or auditing or legal firms and other parties engaged in the production, promotion, administration or execution of the Sweepstakes. “Immediate family” means parents, children, stepparents, stepchildren, siblings, stepsiblings and spouses, whether or not living at the same residence.

2. TO ENTER: Follow Sponsor on Twitter at Twitter.com/drpepper. The Sweepstakes will begin upon Sponsor’s initiation of a “tweet” message through Twitter.com asking for a creative response (“Entry”) to a particular prompt related to Sponsor’s products (the "Initiating Tweet") and will end exactly 5 hours after Sponsor's Initiating Tweet, upon which Sponsor will "tweet" a message ending the Sweepstakes ("Terminating Tweet"). Entries must be received by Sponsor no later than 5 hours from the Initiating Tweet and before the Terminating Tweet. To enter, an entrant must respond to the Initiating Tweet by “direct messaging” ("Direct Message") Sponsor from entrant's own Twitter account. Entries must be at least ten (10) characters and no more than one hundred and forty (140) characters in length. The content of the Direct Message from the entrant, as submitted, will be considered the "Entry". Each Direct Message counts as one Entry. Odds depend upon the number of valid Entries received.

LIMIT ON ENTRIES: LIMIT ONE (1) ENTRY PER PERSON/HOUSEHOLD//TWITTER USER NAME. MULTIPLE ENTRIES BY THE SAME INDIVIDUAL USING DIFFERENT NAMES/TWITTER ACCOUNTS MAY DISQUALIFY THE ENTRANT AND ANY OF HIS/HER ENTRIES. Automated entries are prohibited, and any use of automated devices will cause disqualification.

"Authorized account holder" is defined as the natural person who is assigned to a Twitter account by Twitter.com. All entries become the property of Sponsor and will not be returned to entrant. Automated entries (including but not limited to entries made using any script, macro, bot, or contest service) and facsimiles are not allowed. Potential winner may be requested to provide Sponsor with proof that the potential winner is the authorized account holder of the Twitter account associated with the winning Entry.

BY SUBMITTING AN ENTRY, ENTRANT ACKNOWLEDGES THAT HIS/HER ENTRY MAY BE POSTED ON SPONSOR’S WEBSITE, IN SPONSOR’S DISCRETION.

Submission of an Entry grants Sponsor and its agents an unlimited, worldwide, perpetual, license and right to publish, use, adapt, edit and/or modify such Entry in any way, in any and all media, without limitation, and without consideration to the entrant, whether or not such submission is selected as a winning Entry. By submitting an Entry, you agree that your submission is gratuitous and made without restriction, and will not place Sponsor under any obligation that Sponsor is free to disclose or otherwise disclose the ideas contained in the Entry on a non-confidential basis to anyone or otherwise use the ideas without any additional compensation to you. You acknowledge that, by acceptance of your submission, Sponsor does not waive any rights to use similar or related ideas previously known to Sponsor, or developed by its employees, or obtained from sources other than you.

By accepting a prize, the winner agrees that its Entry will be deemed a Work Made For Hire under the Copyright laws of the United States, but if it cannot be so deemed, then the winner irrevocably assigns and transfers to Sponsor all of his/her right, title and interest in and to his/her Entry, including all but not limited to all copyright and trademark rights which he or she may have, in the United States and worldwide, therein, for consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged. Winner hereby waives in favor of Sponsor, all rights of “Droit Moral” or “Moral Rights of Authors” or any similar rights or principles of law that winner may now or later have to their Entry. Sponsor reserves the right to alter, change or modify the winning Entry, in its sole discretion. Upon request of Sponsor, winner shall execute and deliver such additional instrument of assignment, as may be solely deemed by Sponsor, reasonably necessary to establish the ownership of record of the right, title and interest in and to the Entry and of the copyrights transferred and “Moral Rights of Authors” waived under these Official Rules. Should Sponsor fail to request the said assignment as stated, that shall not be deemed a waiver of Sponsor’s rights and Sponsor may at a later time request the assignment.

If any prize correspondence (including e-mail) is returned as non-deliverable, or if no reply is received from the potential winner, or if the winner is otherwise disqualified for any reason, prize may be forfeited. Unclaimed prizes will not be awarded. Winner (or winner’s parent or legal guardian, if winner is a minor in his/her state/province of residence) may be required to complete, sign and return an Affidavit/Declaration of Eligibility/Liability Release and Assignment of Copyright, and, where lawful, a Publicity Release within 1 day of attempted notification or prize may be forfeited and an alternate winner selected.
