OFFICIAL RULES

No Purchase Required to Enter or Win

  1. Eligibility: The Step Up to the Mic Contest, powered by Boost Mobile® (the “Contest”), is open only to legal residents of the fifty (50) United States and the District of Columbia who are eighteen (18) years of age or older at time of entry (or any greater age required to be deemed to have reached the age of majority under the applicable law of the state or jurisdiction of such entrant’s primary residence at the time of entry). Employees of Triller, Inc., Boost Tel PTY Limited and Boost Worldwide, Inc. (together doing business as Boost Mobile®), Starrah, Inc. for the services of Brittany Hazzard professionally known as Starrah, Shane Lindstrom professionally known as Murda Beatz, Quavious Marshall professionally known as Quavo, Kirshnik Ball professionally known as Takeoff, Wishpond Technologies Ltd., or any of their respective past, present, and future parent, subsidiary, or affiliate companies, or other companies associated with the promotion of the Contest (collectively, the “Contest Entities”), as well as the immediate family (spouse, parents, siblings, and children) and household members of each such employee (whether related or not) are not eligible to participate in the Contest. The Contest is subject to all applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations (collectively, “Applicable Law”) and is void in Puerto Rico, all United States territories and possessions, and where otherwise prohibited or restricted by Applicable Law.


  2. Sponsor: The Contest is sponsored and administered by Triller, Inc. (the “Sponsor”).


  3. Agreement to Official Rules: Participation in the Contest constitutes full and unconditional agreement to, and acceptance by each applicable entrant (each, an “Entrant”) of, these Official Rules and the decisions of Sponsor, which are final and binding. Winning a prize is contingent upon full compliance with these Official Rules and fulfilling all requirements set forth herein.


    THESE OFFICIAL RULES ARE A LEGALLY BINDING AGREEMENT BETWEEN EACH ENTRANT AND THE CONTEST ENTITIES AND GOVERNS EACH ENTRANT’S ENTRY IN THE CONTEST. BY PARTICIPATING IN THE CONTEST, EACH ENTRANT AGREES TO ABIDE BY THESE OFFICIAL RULES. An Entrant’s failure to comply with these Official Rules at any time will void their Entry(ies) (defined herein).


  4. Contest Period and Entry Period: The Contest begins on May 8, 2020 at 12:00 am Eastern Time (“ET”) and ends on July 10, 2020 at 11:59 pm ET (the “Contest Period”). Initial Entries (defined herein) for the Contest will be accepted between 12:00 am ET on May 8, 2020 and 11:59 pm ET on May 29, 2020 (the “Entry Period”). Unless an Entrant advances to Stages 1-4 of the Contest (as further described herein), only an Entrant’s Initial Entry will be collected during the Entry Period. Sponsor’s computer, or that of Sponsor’s designee, runs the official clock for the Contest and will solely determine the time by which an Initial Entry, and any subsequent Stage 1-4 Contest entries (collectively, “Entries,” and each, an “Entry”), are received.


  5. How to Enter: During the Entry Period, an Entrant must log into his/her respective registered user account (“Triller Account”) within the Triller mobile application (the “Triller App”) via a link to such Entrant’s registered user account (“Instagram Account”) within the Instagram mobile application (“Instagram App”) and, within the Triller App, either record in the Triller App or upload from his/her mobile device storage (i.e., camera roll) an “audition video” (not to exceed ninety [90] seconds in duration) of him/herself performing vocally by selecting the pink plus icon at the bottom of the home screen, then the “Social” option, and then either the pink star camera icon at the bottom of the screen to record in the Triller App or photo icon at the bottom of the screen to upload, and then post the “audition video” to such Entrant’s public Triller Account profile page by selecting the “Share” icon, including the hashtags #BoostxTriller, #stepup, and #audition in the post caption, tagging @stepup in the post caption, ensuring “Set to Private” is deselected or toggled off, and selecting “Post & Save” option. Each “audition video” properly created, uploaded, and tagged will count as one (1) entry (an “Initial Entry”). If an Entrant fails to link his/her Triller Account to his/her Instagram Account, fails to post the Initial Entry publicly within the Triller App, fails to post the Initial Entry with the proper #@ tags, or otherwise fails to comply with the other eligibility rules described herein, the Initial Entry will be deemed ineligible and will not count and will be voided. If an Entrant does not already have the Triller App (or a Triller Account), he/she may download the Triller App for free from Google Play or the App Store and register a new Triller Account at no cost. If an Entrant does not already have the Instagram App (or an Instagram Account) or has not linked his/her Instagram Account with his/her Triller Account, he/she may download the Instagram App for free from Google Play or the App Store, register a new Instagram Account at no cost in accordance with Instagram’s Terms of Service (https://help.instagram.com/581066165581870), Platform Policy (https://help.instagram.com/325135857663734), and Privacy Policy (https://help.instagram.com/519522125107875), and then, within the Triller App, select the profile icon at the bottom of the home screen and then select “Edit Profile” to enter his/her “Instagram Username” in the field provided. To ensure an Initial Entry is publicly viewable, the Entrant must select the profile icon at the bottom of the home screen and then “Edit Profile” to make sure “Private Account” is deselected or unchecked and ensure when posting the Initial Entry that the “Set to Private” option is deselected or toggled off. All Initial Entries must be received during the Entry Period in order to be eligible. Each Initial Entry may only feature the applicable Entrant and not any other person, must be in either the English or Spanish languages, must contain a live vocal performance by the Entrant, and may not exceed thirty (30) seconds in duration. The vocal performance featured in each Initial Entry may only be an original work, or a cover of a song that is otherwise available through the music library contained in the Triller App at the time of submission of the Initial Entry (“Triller Library”). Sponsor will not receive or review Initial Entries from “protected” or “private” Triller Accounts or posts. An Entrant is prohibited from setting up multiple Triller Accounts for the purpose of submitting multiple Initial Entries in the Contest. By creating a Triller Account and submitting an Initial Entry, the Entrant will be required to agree to Triller’s Terms of Service (http://triller.co/terms/triller_terms.pdf) and Privacy Policy (http://triller.co/privacy/triller_privacy_policy.pdf), each of which are hereby incorporated by reference herein. If the Entrant does not agree to Triller’s Terms of Service and Privacy Policy, such Entrant cannot create a Triller Account and cannot participate in the Contest.


    If an Entrant chooses to download the Triller App and/or Instagram App to participate in the Contest, he/she must be aware that INTERNET ACCESS IS REQUIRED AND STANDARD DATA RATES MAY APPLY. There is no guarantee that the Triller App or Instagram App will work with all wireless carriers, Internet service providers, or on all mobile devices. Other charges may apply (such as normal airtime and carrier charges as well as charges for wireless Internet access) and may appear on the Entrant’s mobile phone bill or be deducted from their prepaid account balance. Wireless carriers’ rate plans may vary, and an Entrant should contact their wireless carrier for more information on messaging rate plans and charges relating to their participation in this Contest. Mobile device service may not be available in all areas. An Entrant should check his/her mobile device’s capabilities for specific instructions. THERE IS A LIMIT OF ONE (1) INITIAL ENTRY PER ENTRANT USING ONLY ONE (1) TRILLER ACCOUNT AND ONE (1) INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT FOR THE DURATION OF THE INITIAL ENTRY PERIOD (AND SUCH TRILLER ACCOUNT AND INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT MUST BE MAINTAINED THROUGHOUT THE DURATION OF THE CONTEST PERIOD FOR EACH SUBSEQUENT STAGE OF THE CONTEST THAT AN ENTRANT ADVANCES TO BEYOND THE INITIAL ENTRY PERIOD). Initial Entries received from any person or registered Triller Account/Instagram Account in excess of the stated limitation, outside of the Entry Period, or through the use of agencies, robotic, repetitive, automatic, programed or similar methods, will be ineligible and will not count and will be deemed void. Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any Entrant who fails to abide by these eligibility rules. FOR THE AVOIDANCE OF DOUBT, INSTAGRAM IS NOT A SPONSOR OF THIS CONTEST.

    10. contain any personal identification, such as persons’ names, email addresses, street addresses, or license plate numbers, except as already enabled to be displayed publicly through the Triller App’s functionalities (e.g., username);

    11. communicate messages or images inconsistent with the positive image of any of the Contest Entities’ respective names, trademarks, logos, insignias, or brands;

    By submitting an Entry, each Entrant acknowledges and agrees that Sponsor may obtain many submissions in this Contest and that each Entry may be similar or identical in theme, idea, format, or other respects to other Entries submitted in this Contest or other promotions or contests sponsored by any of the Contest Entities, or to other ideas conceived by or provided to any of the Contest Entities, and the Entrant waives any and all Claims (defined herein) he/she has or may have, now or in the future, that any Entry and/or other works accepted, reviewed and/or used by any of the Contest Entities that are similar or identical to each Entry. Except where prohibited by Applicable Law, the Entrant acknowledges and agrees that Sponsor does not have now, nor shall it have in the future, any duty or liability, direct or indirect, vicarious, contributory, or otherwise, with respect to the infringement or protection of any copyright or other intellectual property right in and to each Entry.


  8. Voting Stages and Judging Generally: The Contest will consist of four (4) distinct voting stages (the “Stage(s)”): (i) an initial qualifying Stage to determine up to thirty (30) Stage 1 Qualifiers (defined herein) from the eligible Initial Entries received during the Entry Period that will move onto the remaining Stages; and (ii) three (3) additional Stages in which the Winner (defined herein) will ultimately be selected from those original Stage 1 Qualifiers who advance to become Stage 3 Qualifiers based on new eligible Entries submitted during each applicable Stage, as described in more detail herein. The eligible Initial Entries received from Entrants during the Entry Period, and the eligible additional Entries received from the applicable Stage 1 Qualifiers, Stage 2 Qualifiers, and Stage 3 Qualifiers as they advance through the remaining Stages throughout the duration of the Contest Period, will be judged by songwriter Starrah, record producer Murda Beatz, and rappers Quavo and Takeoff or, if one or more persons becomes unavailable to judge the Contest, then one or more other qualified judges selected by Sponsor in its sole discretion (the “Judges”), and at certain Stages in combination with online voting as described further below, and in all cases with ties or indecision resolved by Sponsor in its sole discretion.


  9. Qualifying Stage Voting and Judging: Sponsor will screen all eligible Initial Entries received during the Entry Period with the assistance of its proprietary algorithm that determines the most popular eligible Initial Entries by aggregating the number of times an eligible Initial Entry was “Liked”, commented on, and shared, as well as with the assistance of an artificial intelligence (AI) solution that measures the vocal ability and uniqueness of an eligible Initial Entry, and will then aggregate the top one hundred (100) eligible Initial Entries based on those factors for further evaluation by the Judges and Sponsor based on the following criteria:


    1. Demonstrated vocal ability (40%)

    2. Style and professionalism of performance (20%)

    3. Uniqueness of voice and performance (20%)

    4. Alignment with Judges’ writing and producing styles and genre (20%)


    The thirty (30) Entrants with the highest-scoring Initial Entries based on these criteria, as determined by the Judges and Sponsor in their sole discretion, will be deemed “Stage 1 Qualifiers” and will advance to Stage 1, subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules. In the event of a tie, Sponsor will determine which eligible Initial Entry(ies) will become Stage 1 Qualifiers and proceed to Stage 1 based on the above stated criteria. The Judges and Sponsor reserve the right to select fewer than thirty (30) Entrants to advance to Stage 1 if, in its sole discretion, Sponsor does not receive a sufficient number of eligible and/or qualified Initial Entries.


    Stage 1 Qualification Requirements: Potential Stage 1 Qualifiers will be contacted via their Instagram Accounts through the Instagram App direct message chat function (“Instagram Direct Message”) or email at the email address associated with their respective Triller Accounts (“Triller Email”) on or about June 5, 2020. If any Instagram Direct Message or Triller Email to a potential Stage 1 Qualifier is undeliverable, if a response to any Instagram Direct Message or Triller Email is not received within twenty-four (24) hours of date of its sending, or if any potential Stage 1 Qualifier does not comply with these Official Rules, at Sponsor’s sole discretion, the opportunity to proceed to Stage 1 may be forfeited and the next runner-up may be selected by Sponsor in its sole discretion. Stage 1 Qualifiers will be required to execute and return an affidavit or declaration of eligibility and a liability release and, where permitted by Applicable Law, a publicity release in one or more forms provided by Sponsor within twenty-four (24) hours of the date and time of initial contact, or the opportunity to proceed to Stage 1 may be forfeited and, at Sponsor’s discretion, the next highest scoring Entry(ies) may be selected. Where permitted by Applicable Law, each potential Stage 1 Qualifier must agree to a background check before proceeding to Stage 1. Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify a potential Stage 1 Qualifier for any reason as Sponsor determines in its sole discretion, including, without limitation, based on driver history or record, any drug or alcohol dependency or treatment, criminal arrests or convictions, or settled or pending lawsuits. Stage 1 Qualifiers understand and agree that their Stage 1 Entry (defined herein) will be posted by Sponsor for public viewing and voting on https://triller.co/stepup during Stage 1 Judging and Voting as described below. Eligible Stage 1 Qualifiers that do not advance to Stage 2 will not receive a prize.

    Stage 1 Judging and Voting: During Stage 1 Judging and Voting, which begins at 12:00 am ET on June 5, 2020 and end at 11:59 pm ET on June 11, 2020, each eligible Initial Entry submitted by a Stage 1 Qualifier during the Entry Period (now each, a “Stage 1 Entry”) will be judged by the Judges on the following criteria and voted on by the public to determine the top ten (10) Stage 1 Qualifiers with the highest-scoring Stage 1 Entries who will advance to Stage 2, subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules.


    1. Demonstrated vocal ability (40%)

    2. Style and professionalism of performance (10%)

    3. Uniqueness of voice and performance (10%)

    4. Alignment with Judges’ writing and producing styles and genre (10%)

    5. Online Voting: During Stage 1 Voting, online voting will serve two (2) purposes:

      1. Online voting will be combined with the Judges’ scores as a calculation of the total number of votes received (as determined by Sponsor) for each Stage 1 Entry and will account for 30% of the Stage 1 Entry’s total Stage 1 score. The nine (9) Stage 1 Qualifiers with the highest-scoring Stage 1 Entries will advance to Stage 2, subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules.

      2. Independently, the one (1) Stage 1 Entry with the highest number of votes received (as determined by Sponsor) will be determined the Stage 1 Fan Favorite and that Stage 1 Qualifier will automatically advance to Stage 2, subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules.


    Stage 1 Voting Period: During the Stage 1 Voting Period, any person can vote between 12:00 am ET on June 5, 2020 and 11:59 pm ET on June 11, 2020 for their favorite Stage 1 Entry by visiting https://triller.co/stepup to cast a vote. To cast their vote for a particular Stage 1 Entry, voters must click on the corresponding Stage 1 Entry, enter their email address for verification purposes, and click the “Vote” button. Votes will only be collected via the method described and the number of “Likes,” comments, shares, or plays for a Stage 1 Entry or “Follows” for a Stage 1 Qualifier’s Triller Account on the Triller App or Instagram Account on the Instagram App do not count as votes for these purposes. Eligible votes received for each Stage 1 Entry will be tallied. Limit one (1) vote per person per day for the duration of Stage 1 Voting Period. Votes received from any person or email address in excess of the stated daily limitation will be void. Only votes submitted via the website at https://triller.co/stepup will be eligible. Votes submitted via any other method, including, but not limited to, U.S. Postal Service, facsimile, or other express delivery services, will NOT be accepted. A Stage 1 Qualifier is prohibited from obtaining votes by any fraudulent or inappropriate means or practices, including, without limitation, offering prizes or other inducements to other individuals and/or using any websites or online forums designed to induce individuals or provide other incentives to vote for their Stage 1 Entry, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. Use of script, macro, or any automated system or practice to view the Stage 1 Entries or with the intent to impair or subvert the integrity of the viewing process is prohibited and all such votes will be void.


    In the event of a tie, Sponsor will determine the ten (10) Stage 1 Qualifiers with the highest-scoring Stage 1 Entries to advance to Stage 2 based on the above stated criteria. Decisions of the Judges and Sponsor are final and binding. Sponsor reserves the right to select fewer than ten (10) Stage 1 Qualifiers to advance to Stage 2 if, in its sole discretion, Sponsor does not receive a sufficient number of eligible and qualified Stage 1 Entries.


    Stage 2 Qualification Requirements: Ten (10) Stage 1 Qualifiers will advance to Stage 2 (the “Stage 2 Qualifiers”): those associated with the nine (9) highest-scoring Stage 1 Entries and the one (1) Stage 1 Fan Favorite Entrant. Potential Stage 2 Qualifiers will be notified of their advancement via Instagram Direct Message or Triller Email on or about June 12, 2020. If any Instagram Direct Message or Triller Email to a potential Stage 2 Qualifier is undeliverable, if a response to any Instagram Direct Message or Triller Email is not received within forty eight (48) hours of date of its sending, or if any potential Stage 2 Qualifier does not comply with these Official Rules, at Sponsor’s sole discretion, the opportunity to proceed to Stage 2 may be forfeited and the next runner-up may be selected by Sponsor in its sole discretion. Stage 2 Qualifiers understand and agree that their Stage 2 Entry (defined herein) will be posted by Sponsor for public viewing and voting on https://triller.co/stepup during Stage 2 Judging and Voting as described below. Eligible Stage 2 Qualifiers that do not advance to Stage 3 will not receive a prize.
