By entering this Promotion, unless prohibited by law, each Entrant grants to Sirius the right to use, display, distribute or publish such Entrant’s name, likeness, photograph, voice, address (city and state), biographical information, and any material based thereon or derived therefrom, or to refrain from so doing, in any manner in any and all media, whether now known or hereafter devised, anywhere in the world in perpetuity in connection with this Promotion or as Sirius otherwise determines in its sole discretion, and for purposes of advertising or trade in promoting or publicizing Sirius, its products and/or services, without compensation.

Drawing and Odds of Winning.
We are looking for a woman that has the ugliest scar. Entries must include contestant’s full name, date of birth (must provide proof upon request), contact phone number and a clear picture of the contestant’s face and scar. Within one week after the end of the submission Period, a panel of judges, made up of producers and staff of the Howard Stern show (the "Judges"), will select up to five finalists (each, a “Finalist”) using the following criteria: submitting photo (15%
; quality/hideousness of scar (35%) and beauty (50%). In the event of a tie, the tying Entrants will be re-judged by Gary Dell’Abate from the Howard Stern show and the highest score in quality/hideousness of scar will be named the tying winner. In the event of a further tie, the tying Entrants, with the highest score in odd characteristics will be named the tying winner.
Each Finalist will come to New York on May 22, 2008 (date subject to change) for an in-studio segment taping where each Finalist’s face, body and scar will be reviewed by Howard Stern and other show principals. At the end of the segment, Howard Stern will choose the winner based on his preference and liking. Only one winner will be chosen and the final decision will be made by Howard Stern. All Finalists must be willing to reveal certain body parts to display scar that may include going topless or nude (depending on scar location) during the segment taping and must sign a waiver and release prior to the segment taping concerning Finalist’s appearance and granting rights to use such appearance in any and all media, including without limitation, radio and television. All Finalists must be available to come to New York, NY on and appear on the Howard Stern Show on May 22, 2008 (date subject to change) to be eligible for the Prize. Sirius will provide each Finalist with round-trip coach air transportation to New York, New York (the "Destination") from a major commercial airport located near the Finalist’s primary residence (as determined by Sirius); provided that Sirius reserves the right to substitute ground transportation for air transportation if Finalist resides within 150 miles of the Destination. All other expenses not mentioned herein, including without limitation, ground transportation, meals, hotel amenities, fees and gratuities, are the responsibility of the Finalists. In the event that Sirius elects to provide hotel accommodations in connection with travel to the Destination (as determined in its sole discretion), such accommodations shall include a standard room and the tax thereon only.
Prize Winners. Each potential Prize winner and his/her entry shall be subject to verification and the requirements of these Official Rules. Sirius will notify Prize winners by telephone. Sirius will require Prize winners to execute an affidavit of eligibility, publicity release (except where prohibited), liability waiver and/or IRS Form W-9 (if required by IRS regulations) prior to the delivery of any Prize (collectively, "Affidavit"). If a Prize winner does not respond to the Prize notification within 24 hours, is found to be ineligible, fails to execute any documentation required by Sirius and/or a Prize is returned as undeliverable, Sirius will consider such Prize winner to have forfeited the Prize and another Prize winner will be selected as time allows. Sirius reserves the right to modify notification procedures in its sole discretion, if necessary due to time constraints. If a Prize is won by a person who is not of the legal age of majority in his/her state of residence (a "Minor"), the Minor's parent or legal guardian will be required to execute the Affidavit on the Minor’s behalf. Sirius reserves the right to disqualify any Entrant for any reason, including without limitation, if that Entrant has not complied with these Official Rules or has interfered, in Sirius’ sole opinion, with the proper conduct of this Promotion. Payment of all taxes is the sole responsibility of each Prize winner. Prize winners may be issued an IRS Form 1099 for the approximate retail value of the applicable Prizes.
