  2. ELIGIBILITY: The Promotion is open only to permanent legal residents of the continental United States and Washington, D.C. (excluding all other U.S. and foreign territories and possessions) who are physically located and residing therein and who warrant and represent that they meet all of the following requirements as of the time their entry into the Promotion is deemed complete: (a) they are 18 years of age or older and at least the age of majority in their state of residence; (b) they have Internet access; (c) they possess a social security number, or federal tax identification number issued by the appropriate government agency; and (d) they have carefully read and reviewed prior to agreeing to, and agreed to as instructed, these Official Rules.  Sponsor and its affiliates, their respective directors, officers, employees, or agents, and other persons/entities involved or directly associated in the development, handling, production, implementation and distribution of the Promotion (collectively “Sponsor Entities”) and/or members of their immediate families and/or persons living in the same household as such persons, whether or not related, are ineligible to enter the Promotion.  This Promotion is void where prohibited by law.
  3. HOW TO ENTER:  To enter the Promotion, you must go to during the Promotion Period and fill out the nomination form completely and accurately, including your contact information, your nominee’s contact information, and 100-250 words about how the nominee made a positive impact in 2020 and why they deserve to be recognized, honored and rewarded by Sponsor (“Submission”). Entry will be limited to the first 101 Submissions. Entrants may not nominate themselves in the Submission.

Note: By completing a Submission, you are acknowledging and agreeing that: (i) Sponsor has the right to use your Submission in connection with this Promotion, its advertising, and/or its Terms of Use located at; (ii) Sponsor may use any personally identifiable information collected in connection with the Promotion in accordance with its online privacy policy located at and (iii) you unconditionally accept and will comply with these Official Rules.

Once you complete a Submission, you will be entered into the Promotion; provided, however, that any Submission that does not comply with these Official Rules will be disqualified and will not be eligible for entry.  Any attempted form of entry into the Promotion other than as described herein is void.  Sponsor reserves the right to verify eligibility of all entrants.  Illegible and/or incomplete entries and entries submitted by entrants who do not meet the eligibility requirements (including all requirements with respect to age and residence) are void. By entering the Promotion, entrants agree to comply with these Official Rules including all eligibility requirements.

Limit one entry per person.  Multiple entries submitted for the Promotion will count only as one entry, and will not qualify as an entry for any other Promotion whether in the past or future.  Any attempt by an entrant to obtain more than the allowable number of entries by using more than one account will void all of that entrant’s entries.

Sponsor Entities are not responsible for lost, late, or misdirected entries, for technical, hardware or software failures of any kind, for lost or unavailable network connections, or for failed, incomplete, garbled or delayed computer transmissions or any human error which may occur in the receipt or processing of the entries.  Proof of entry does not constitute proof of delivery or Sponsor’s receipt of that entry.  Sponsor reserves the right to modify the scheduling of the Promotion without prior notification.  In the event of a dispute regarding the identity of the entrant, the entry will be deemed to be submitted by the person in whose name the email account was registered on the date the entry is submitted.

  1. WINNER SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION: On or around February 24th, 2021, Sponsor’s Amorepacific Marketing Manager, Marketing Director, Social Media Sr. Manager, and PR Sr. Manager (“Contest Judges”) will select 10 finalists based on the following judging criteria from among the first 101 Submissions received by Sponsor during the Promotion Period:
  • Overcoming Adversity – the nominee overcame adversity in 2020, such as working as a single parent or facing opposition from the community in which the nominee is a part of (40 points);
  • Champion Gender and Race Equality – the nominee’s actions supported women and underrepresented or diverse populations in 2020 (40 points);
  • Fighting for the Future – the nominee’s actions were intended to better the future for the community, such as participating in vaccine research, environmentalist efforts, or childcare (10 points); and
  • Personal Investment, Above and Beyond – the extent to which the nominee’s actions were not awarded monetarily or recognized by the community (e.g., a teacher who made house calls to under-privileged students would have a higher score for this metric than a prominent head of a hospital) (10 points)

Each Initial Submission will receive a score based on one hundred (100) total possible points ("Judging Score"). In the event of a tie, the nominee of the Entrant whose Submissions receive the higher score for criterion (a) above (i.e., overcoming adversity) will be declared a finalist. In the event of a further tie, the nominee of the Entrant whose Submissions receive the higher score for criterion (b) above (i.e., champion gender and race equality) will be declared a finalist. In the event of a further tie, Sponsor in its sole discretion shall choose the finalist based on an evaluation of the tied entries to determine which Submission is superior overall, taking all criteria into consideration. 

On or about February 24th, 2021, Sponsor will notify finalists via phone or email used in the Submission.  A finalist must respond to Sponsor within seven (7) days (“Acceptance Deadline”) to accept or decline the nomination.  If a finalist does not respond by the Acceptance Deadline, then she will be disqualified and Sponsor may, but is not required to, select an alternate finalist.  Sponsor shall have no liability for failed notification attempts that are lost, stolen, undeliverable, intercepted, or not received by a finalist or an alternate finalist for any reason.  A finalist who receives the Grand Prize is known as the “Winner.”  Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to select no Winner for the Promotion if an insufficient number of eligible and complete entries are received during the Promotion Period.

  1. PRIZE:  Ten Grand Prizes may be awarded to Winners during the Promotion Period.  The Grand Prize shall consist of six (6) 70 mL units of Amorepacific’s Vintage Single Extract Essence, an original digital illustration of the Winner, and a feature in Amorepacific’s social media channels and emails to subscribers. One Hundred and One (101) Entry Prizes, each consisting of two (2) 70 mL units of Amorepacific’s Vintage Single Extract Essence, may be awarded during the Promotion Period to the first 101 Entrants and nominees with eligible Submissions. The Entry Prize and Grand Prize shall be collectively referred to as the “Prize.”

No substitution, transfer, refunds, or cash equivalent for the Entry Prize or Grand Prize (or component thereof) is permitted.

Approximate Retail Value (“ARV”) of the Entry Prize is $190 USD and Grand Prize is $670 USD, which represents Sponsor’s good faith determination of the ARV thereof and cannot be challenged or appealed.  In the event the ARV of the Prize (or Prize component) is more than the actual retail value or fair market value of the Prize (or Prize component), the difference will not be awarded in cash or otherwise.  If there is a forfeiture of the Prize, this forfeiture will serve as complete fulfillment of the obligation by Sponsor and no additional compensation will be awarded.  Prize recipient is solely responsible for all costs, incidentals, and any other expenses not specifically mentioned as being included.  All federal, state, local or other taxes are the sole responsibility of Prize recipient, and such recipient may receive an IRS Form 1099-MISC from Sponsor for the total ARV of the Prize (stated herein) for the Promotion Period.
