Disney Magic Makers Contest
No Purchase Necessary To Enter Or Win. A PURCHASE OR PAYMENT OF ANY KIND WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING. You must have Internet access and an active e-mail account to participate.
CONTEST OVERVIEW: Disney is looking for eligible fans (each, a “Submitter”) to nominate the “Disney Magic Makers” in their life. A “Disney Magic Maker” is someone that the Submitter knows personally who goes above and beyond to help others in the Disney Magic Maker’s community (“Nominee”). A Submitter may nominate themselves as a Nominee.
The Entries (as defined below) will be reviewed and scored by a panel of judges comprised of representatives of Administrator (as defined below) to determine up to thirty (30)* individual finalists (each a “Finalist” and collectively, “Finalists”) per contest period (each a “Contest Entry Period” and collectively, “Contest Entry Periods”) (see chart below). The Finalist Entries will then be reviewed and scored by a separate judging panel comprised of representatives of Sponsor to determine the potential individual winning Nominees for each Contest Entry Period* (each a “Winner” and collectively, “Winners”). The total number of Winners for each Contest Entry Period are set out in the chart below. For avoidance of doubt, Nominees who are not selected as Finalists in a Contest Entry Period will remain eligible to be selected as Finalists in subsequent Contest Entry Periods. Prizes will be awarded solely to Winners. Submitters will not receive any prize for participation or for nominating a Winner.
By participating in the Disney Magic Makers Contest (“Contest”), the Submitter (“you”) agree to be bound by and abide by these Official Rules (“Official Rules”) and the decisions of Sponsor and Administrator, which are final and binding in all respects and not subject to appeal.

JUDGING (Winner Determination/Notification): Entries will be initially judged on a rolling basis by a panel of judges comprised by the Administrator (“Administrator Judges”). For this first stage of judging, the Administrator Judges will review each of the Essays and select up to thirty (30) Finalists per Contest Entry Period. The scoring by the Administrator Judges will be based on criteria below, each judged on a scale of 1-10 (10 being the highest) as follows:
- Action. How does the nominee’s actions make the world a better place through creative, needs-based (COVID-19 or otherwise), imaginative or otherwise extraordinary acts of good? Does the nominee utilize their individual talents when doing good?;
- Inspiration. Does the nominee’s story warm your heart, make you want to tell your friends about their story and inspire others to act?; and
- Courageous Spirit. When the nominee learned of a community need, did they go above and beyond to answer the call for help?
When the total scores are tabulated by the Administrator Judges, the top Essays per Contest Entry Period will advance to the next phase of judging. Administrator Judges reserve the right to advance fewer than thirty (30) Finalist Entries to the next stage if, in their sole discretion, they do not receive a sufficient number of Entries of sufficient quality. The Finalist Entries will then be judged by another judging panel from Sponsor (“Sponsor Judges”), which will select the Contest Entry Period Winners based on the judging criteria listed above. For the avoidance of doubt, the ranking of Finalists by the Administrator Judges will not be taken into account by the Sponsor Judges. The Essays with the 8 (for Contest Entry Period 1) or 7 (for Contest Entry Periods 2-7) highest final scores from the Sponsor Judges will be deemed potential Winners. In the event of a tie in either round of judging, the tie will be broken in favor of the Essay with the higher “How does the nominee’s actions make the world a better place through creative, needs-based (COVID-19 or otherwise), imaginative or otherwise extraordinary acts of good? Does the nominee utilize their individual talents when doing good?” criterion among the tied Essays; such Essay will be deemed a Winner. Prizes (as defined below) will be awarded to the Winners. The Submitters will not receive a prize of any kind, unless a Submitter is the Nominee associated with a winning Entry.
Each Submitter whose corresponding Entry/Nominee is selected as a potential Winner will be contacted by email and/or telephone on or about one (1) business day following the applicable Contest Entry Period Judging Period (per the chart above). At time of contact, the Submitter will supply to Administrator the corresponding Nominee’s contact information; in the event the Nominee is a Minor, the Submitter will supply to Administrator the contact information of the Nominee’s parent/guardian. By providing Administrator with this contact information, Submitter represents and warrants that they have obtained the Nominee’s permission (or in the case of a Minor Nominee, such Minor’s parent/guardian’s permission) to supply such contact information. Submitter and potential Winner (or, in the case of minor potential Winner, such minor potential Winner’s parent/legal guardian) will be required to sign and return, within five (5) business days of notification, an Affidavit of Eligibility, Release and Indemnification, and a Publicity Release where allowed by law, along with the necessary paperwork for a background check and any release(s) required of Submitter/Nominee (collectively, (“Contest Documents”). Affidavit will also include a Grant of Rights from Submitters/potential Winners to Sponsor, as detailed above. If the Affidavit of Eligibility, Release and Indemnification, and Publicity Release, or any other portions of the Contest Documents are not returned to Sponsor within the specified time period, the potential Winner may be disqualified. If a potential Winner is disqualified for any reason, there will be no prize of any kind awarded and an alternate Winner will be selected, i.e., the Essay with the next highest score from the Sponsor Judges judging round in the applicable Contest Entry Period. The process will continue until such time that all Winners have been verified for the applicable Contest Entry Period.
