  2. The link to the Official rules takes me to the sweeps page ….I can’t find how to get to the rules.I just need to know if Michigan is able to enter as usually they are excluded from tobacco sweepstakes.

  3. Read the rules and this is a giant rights grab. They want high rez photos and they can use them for anything they want. IE put them on a billboard and not pay you a damn dime. I hate that companies do this stuff, they will easily get more than the cost of the winning prize in free stock photography. They know who’s good in the industry and who to hire if they need photos taken. They can troll flickr if they want to discover new talent. its simply a ploy to get free photos and everyone will fall for it.

  4. Thank you For You Winning Sweepstakes Number! I Have been on th Number #11 recently, thank you.
