Participating in BachelorPrint’s “Thesis of the Month” contest is free and participants must meet the following eligibility requirements.
To participate in this contest, you must have your academic paper printed and bound at www.bachelorprint.com. In addition, contestants must create a public post on their Facebook or Instagram account that includes a photo of their academic paper (which has been printed by BachelorPrint), a link to BachelorPrint’s Facebook account www.facebook.com/bachelorprint or Instagram profile @bachelorprint, use the hashtag #thesisofthemonth, and also review and recommend the BachelorPrint service.
We can, at our discretion, exclude contestants if legitimate reasons exist, for example, if the contestant:
(a) Uses any form of manipulation
(b) Breaches eligibility requirements
(c) Uses unfair and deceptive practices
(d) Does not adhere to contest rules
All posts and links are fully checked for authenticity. If there is evidence that a predominantly large portion of Likes is from several countries, or that these were purchased or from a like exchange site, we can also exclude the contestant at our own discretion.
Contest procedure & participation
Every month we check the #thesisofthemonth hashtags on Facebook and Instagram. All posts with this hashtag are checked to make sure they meet the contest eligibility requirements. If they do, they will be included in the contest.
The participant who received the most likes for his posted photo of his or her thesis (or academic paper) and gave a detailed review of our service (at least 1 sentence) will be fully refunded for the total cost of the order pertaining to the post, up to a maximum of $300. The contestant with the second-highest number of likes will be refunded a total of 50% of his or her printing costs. The contestant with the third-highest number of likes will be refunded a total of 25% of his or her printing costs. Only 3 contestants can win. If all top contestants have the same number of likes, the contest provider reserves the right to decide whether the prize will be split evenly three ways or whether each of the winners will receive a different amount. The participant can only participate in the contest for a maximum of one month and must use the same thesis from the same order. The participant cannot participate in another contest using the same academic paper.
If the participant places another order for a different academic paper at the BachelorPrint shop, she or he can once again participate in the contest.
Contestants may not use several e-mail addresses or several Facebook or Instagram profiles to increase their chances of winning. Participating in the contest is free. If we establish that a participant used several fake profiles to increase the number of likes, this participant will be excluded from the contest.
