Participation in the competition will take place through a specially created page created by the Promoter, and accessible through the "Anna and Vito" section within the main "Gelateria La Romana" pages on Facebook.

On the first day of each month, for six consecutive months from April 2017 to September 2017, the Promoter will publish on their Global Facebook Page the image and the name of the ice cream cake that will be the subject of the photographs that participants in the Competition will take over the next 20 days (herein and for brevity "the Ice Cream Cake of the Month").

Then, again from the 1st to the 21st day of each month, the Participant will be required to upload a photograph, taken by the Participant, which has as its main subject the Ice Cream Cake of the Month.

The aim will be to provide a photograph with an artistic character that has been inspired by the Ice Cream Cake of the Month. Using their skills and abilities, the participant will have to take a photograph in which the Ice Cream Cake of the Month must be portrayed (as the main subject). The cake can be displayed within a wider context, and this can be freely chosen by the participant according to their artistic feeling, so as to create an image having artistic and emotional power that expresses the subject in a suitable context.

Participants may use one or more photographs of which they possess authorship and ownership, and they must have authorisation to publish from third parties if they personally portrayed in the photographs; the photographs used by the Participant must be unpublished before submission, and the main subject will necessarily be the Ice Cream Cake of the Month.

Each Participant is responsible for the content of their work and agrees that they enjoy full rights to use the content of the photographs used during participation in this Contest, and that they have obtained the necessary clearances, pledging to do so as of now to indemnify the Promoter from any actions and / or claims exerted by third parties and to indemnify the Promoter for any prejudicial consequences that they may suffer as a result of the above violations following the publication of the photographs.

All photographs must be in a format and size compatible with the specifications expressly indicated in the section dedicated to this Competition on the Global Facebook Page. Photographs taken with mobile phone, smartphone, tablet, digital camera, analog camera are eligible to participate in this Contest.

The right of the Promoter to exclude Participants will be their exclusive prerogative, and cannot be appealed.

Participants will be notified of the acceptance and publication of their artistic work by means of an automatic e-mail communication.

Participation in the competition is free, except for the normal cost of an Internet connection. Any payments necessary to participate in the contest remains the responsibility of Participants and depends on the tariff plans of the network operator of the participant.

In the performance period of the competition - from the 1st to the 21st day of each month, between April and September 2017 - all of the artistic photographs taken by the Participants will be published in the Gallery of the competition on the Global Page of "Gelateria La Romana" on Facebook. This will follow verification and approval at the discretion of Promoter, and winning photographs will be voted by Facebook users who visit the "Contests" section.

For each month during the contest, voting for the submitted photographs can only take place from the 1st to the 21st day of the month in question, so that during this period, Facebook users will have access to the dedicated section and vote only photographs relating to the Ice Cream Cake of the Month, and not those received in previous months.

To cast their vote, site visitors will be required to click on a "heart" next to their chosen photograph.

Every Facebook user will be able to submit a single (1) vote for each artwork.

The Participant whose artistic image, at the end of the 21st day of the month in question, obtains the highest number of votes and "hearts" from Facebook users, will win the prize for that month (as per Art. 5).

All of the verification operations of the votes allocated and the identification of the winner of each month will be carried out from the 22th to the 30th day of the month in question. In the case of a tie, the result will be at the discretion of the Promoter, who will determine the winner according to their opinions about the quality of the artistic work.

As of September 22, 2017 the Promoter will select the Participant, including the winners of each month, whose artistic photography has obtained the most votes. This Participant will then be awarded the main prize (as per Art. 6).

By registering and participating in the Contest each Participant acknowledges that the Promoter will become full owner of the winning artistic photographs, and waives the right to any possible uses of the same, even partially or combined with other works and / or images kept by the Participant, retaining only the right to be recognised as the author of the winning images.

For this purpose it should be noted that the award recognises the artistic work to be considered constitutes the primary value of this competition, and ownership of this value will be definitively transferred to the promoter, while recognising the Participant as the creator of the winning images.

Art. 5: PRIZES

For each month during the term of this Competition under art.2, the Promoter will be giving away a prize.

Each Prize prize consists of a prepaid card of a value of EUR 100.00 for the purchase of products created and marketed by the Promoter, to be used only in the "La Romana" store chosen by the winner, who must notify the Promoter when they have chosen their point of sale, in order to activate the card.

The winner will have nothing to expect from the Promoter if the same winner, for any reason - provided it is not the fault of the Promoter - does not benefit from the award of the prize. The award will be considered formally complete, in fact, once the card containing the amount of credit in question has been delivered to the winner.

The winner will then need to contact the Promoter to determine in which store they will use the card. The Card can be used only in the store in which it is activated, so the Promoter will need to know in advance at which location the customer intends to take advantage of the award.

There will be a total of 6 prizes, or 1 (one) for each month of duration of the contest, in addition to the final Superpremio referred to in the next section (Art.6).

No Participant can be awarded more than one prize; in the case of victory of a Participant who has already won an award in the previous months, the Prize will be awarded to the participant who proves to have ranked second by number of votes received.

The prize includes:

- Flights for two people to New York from an airport chosen by the Promoter in agreement with the winner;

- Accommodation for 5 nights for two people in hotels chosen by the Promoter in agreement with the winner.

The Superpremio will be available to redeem until 12/31/18.

The winner will have no rights to expect anything from the promoter if the same winner, for any reason - provided it is not the fault of the Promoter - once the booking is confirmed, cannot subsequently make use of the stay they have booked. In fact, the Superpremio will be considered formally awarded once the booking confirmation has been received.

The total value of the final Superpremio will not exceed EUR 4,500.00 (four thousand five-hundred Euros).
