  • The person uploading the Submission will be deemed the entrant ("Entrant"). The Entrant is the one (1) person who owns the email address set forth in Entrant's registration form. If any group elects to collaborate on a Submission, they are required to designate one (1) person as the agent of the group to enter the Contest, agree to these rules and accept any prize on behalf of the group. Neither Sponsor nor any of the Contest Parties are liable for any disputes between collaborators arising under or related to the Contest.
  • Each individual Entrant is allowed a total of no more than one (1) Submissions.
  • Limit one (1) Semifinalist, Finalist and/or Grand Prize per person, household and/or email address throughout the Contest Period.
  • Each Submission must comply with the Contest Website Terms of Service, as well as these Official Rules. In the event of any inconsistency between these Official Rules and the Terms of Service, the terms in these Official Rules shall prevail.
  • Each Submission must be the original work of the Entrant produced for this Contest; it may not have been entered in or won previous contests or awards; it may not have been published previously in any medium; it must not infringe any party's intellectual property or other rights; it must be suitable for display and publication on the Contest Website and other media (e.g. may not be obscene or indecent, including but not limited to nudity or profanity); it must not contain defamatory statements (including but not limited to words or symbols that are widely considered offensive to individuals of a certain race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation or socioeconomic group), it must not include threats to any person, place, business, group or world peace, it must not invade privacy or other rights of any person, firm or entity, and it must not in any other way violate applicable laws and regulations.
  • Each Submission must not feature or refer to any residence or property other than a Fairfield property; and it must not feature or reference any third party trademarks or logos (with the exception of FAIRFIELD™, CREATING BETTER LIVING FOR BETTER LIVES® or any other marks utilized by Fairfield), including but not limited to third party names, logos or trademarks appearing on any surface or on clothing such as T-shirts, hats, etc.

If in Sponsor's determination it is necessary or advisable to make minor, non-material adjustments to an otherwise compliant Submission, Sponsor may, in its sole discretion, elect to do so, or may ask the applicable Entrant to do so. If Sponsor requests Entrant to make these adjustments and Entrant chooses not to make these adjustments, the Submission is subject to disqualification.

All Submissions will be reviewed for content before being published or judged; however, such review does not relieve Entrant from responsibility for compliance with all of the Terms of Service and these Official Rules. Submissions that do not comply in all material respects with the Terms of Services or these Official Rules or that otherwise contain prohibited or inappropriate content as determined by the Sponsor, in its sole discretion, will be disqualified and will not be published or considered for prizes. Sponsor makes the final determination as to which Submissions are eligible to take part in this Contest and be considered for a Semifinalist, Finalist and/or Grand Prize. Certain Submissions may be featured from time to time on the Contest Website during the Contest Period and/or in Sponsor's social media pages and channels, in Sponsor's sole discretion; being selected as a featured Submission is unrelated to the Judging Criteria and does not guarantee selection as a Semifinalist, Finalist or Grand Prize winner in the Contest.

By entering this Contest and uploading your Submission, you irrevocably grant to Sponsor and its agents the unconditional and perpetual right to post, display, publish, use, adapt, edit and/or modify such Submission in any way, in any and all media, for any purpose, without limitation, and without consideration to you. Finalists agree to irrevocably assign and transfer to the Sponsor any and all rights, title and interest in their Submission, including without limitation all copyrights, and to waive all moral rights in their Submission. All Contest Entrants further agree to release and indemnify and hold harmless Sponsor and the Contest Parties from any and all claims that any commercial, advertising, presentation, Web content or any other material subsequently produced, presented and/or prepared by or on behalf of Sponsor infringe on the rights of Entrant's work as contained in any Submission.

4. SELECTION OF WINNERS:

  • Fifty (50) semifinalist Submissions (each a "Semifinalist") will be selected by a judging process in which a panel of select Fairfield employees will act as judges ("Judges") to evaluate each eligible Submission based on the Judging Criteria set forth above. Semifinalists will be determined on or about February 24, 2022 and notified of their Semifinalist status on or about February 28, 2022.
  • Three finalist Submissions (each, a "Finalist") will be selected by the Judges from among the Semifinalists on or about February 25, 2022 and will be notified of their Finalist status on or about February 28, 2022. In the event of a tie for the third Finalist spot, the tie will be broken based on the highest score in the first Judging Criteria, continuing thereafter to each Judging Criteria, in order, as needed to break the tie.
  • The three (3) Finalist Submissions will be posted for the public (ages 18 or older) to vote on their favorite, starting on March 2, 2022 at 12:00:00 pm and ending on March 9, 2022 at 11:59:59 am PT (the "Voting Period"). Votes may be cast on the Fairfield Access website or app, or by "liking" a Submission on Fairfield's Facebook or Instagram pages. Regardless of the number of voting platforms available, each person is limited to five (5) votes per day per platform.
  • At the close of the Voting Period, the Finalist whose Submission receives the most votes will be deemed the Grand Prize Winner ("Grand Prize Winner"), and the Grand Prize Winner's selection will be publicized on the Contest Website and through the three platforms used for the Contest's public voting. In the unlikely event that public voting results in a tie, the tied Submissions will be re-judged by the Judges based on the Judging Criteria stated above to determine the Grand Prize Winner.
  • Any use of robotic, macro, automatic, programmed or like voting methods will void all such votes. Any attempt by a Finalist and/or his/her family/friends to vote more than the number of times authorized herein using multiple names, email addresses, phone numbers and/or any other fraudulent mechanism, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion, shall give Sponsor the right to disqualify that Finalist. All Finalists are subject to verification, including without limitation verification of eligibility, compliance with these Official Rules and completion of release forms (described below). If attempted notification is returned as undeliverable, if a Finalist cannot be verified, or if a Finalist is otherwise unable to accept a prize, that prize will be forfeited and may be awarded to an alternate Finalist provided sufficient time remains, in Sponsor's discretion.
  • The Grand Prize Winner must make himself/herself reasonably available to meet with representatives of Sponsor personnel and one or more Wayfair interior designers for the purpose of realizing the design embodied in the Grand Prize Winner’s Submission, including the production and review of a proposed floorplan, design options and product options. The Grand Prize Winner must also participate in one or more on-camera interviews with Sponsor’s representatives and make available his or her residence for video documentation of its condition before, after and throughout the redesign process. In the event that the Grand Prize Winner is not reasonably available, as determined in Sponsor’s sole discretion, Sponsor reserves the right to select one of the other Finalists to receive the Grand Prize, subject again to the alternate Grand Prize Winner’s reasonable availability for the purpose described in this paragraph.

Entrants agree that Sponsor has the sole right to decide all matters and disputes arising from this Contest and that all decisions of Sponsor are final and binding. Finalists, by acceptance of the Finalist Prize (defined below), agree to release, indemnify and hold harmless Sponsor and the Contest Parties, as well as each of their respective parent and affiliated companies, and each of their employees, representatives, and contractors from any and all liability, loss, damage, cost or claim related to any allegation regarding the acceptance or use of their prize, including but not limited to the posting or other dissemination of the Finalist's Submission.

If the actual, alleged or publicized conduct of any Entrant is illegal or, if any Entrant has been charged with or convicted of a crime, or in Sponsor's sole discretion is otherwise grossly offensive or violates generally accepted standards of behavior (including, but not limited to, illicit drug use or public intoxication) or otherwise leads the Sponsor to believe or conclude that public association with the Entrant subjects Sponsor to ridicule, contempt, controversy, embarrassment or scandal, Sponsor, in its sole discretion, may disqualify that Entrant and the Entrant's Submission will no longer be eligible for this Contest.
