YOUR MISSION

If you would like to be part of the judging panel, please complete the questionnaire by December 14, 2018.
The testing period will run from March 11 to May 31st , 2019.

I recognize and accept that by simply submitting my comments and notes in the context of the 2019 ELLE Beauty Grand Prix Awards via the online log or by any other means, I am granting ELLE QUÉBEC/ELLE CANADA and their respective business partners a worldwide, irrevocable, perpetual licence, without any compensation to me, enabling them to, at their own discretion, use, modify, reproduce, distribute, communicate to the public, translate and archive my comments, suggestions, and notes (collectively known as the “Contribution”) submitted in part or in full. To this end, I wave any moral rights that I may have or may exercise relating to my Contribution, including as to the integrity and authorship of my Contribution. I recognize that any rights that I grant herein apply in respect of any use and exploitation, in regards to my Contribution, through or using any medium or media whatsoever, existing or upcoming, for the duration of the copyright term and any renewals.

All products registered for the 2019 ELLE Beauty Grand Prix Awards are of a certain quality. However, I understand that it has been brought to my attention that no one is exempt from an allergic reaction. If I react badly to a product, I agree to immediately discontinue use, even if the testing phase is ongoing, and inform the Beauty Grand Prix team immediately.

I agree to comply with the demands laid out by the 2019 ELLE Beauty Grand Prix organization and to sign all authorization and consent forms deemed necessary or practical in regards to my participation in the 2019 ELLE Beauty Grand Prix Awards.

Herein, and to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, I grant, exonerate and fully release, irrevocably and voluntarily, Les Publications Groupe TVA-Hearst Inc. and their employees, managers, representatives, affiliated and related entities and their divisions, their successors, beneficiaries and all organizations connected with the 2019 ELLE Beauty Grand Prix Awards (collectively, the “Indemnities”) of all responsibility and, except in cases of gross negligence or wilful misconduct and, again, to the fullest extent permitted by law, I forever waive any right of action, request, claim, procedure and plea of any kind whatsoever against the Indemnities that could be directly or indirectly related to the products, their use and my participation in the 2019 ELLE Beauty Grand Prix Awards.

I recognize that even if I fully comply with the criteria herein, my candidature might not be retained. Also, I recognize that all action, conduct or omission on my part, whether intentional or accidental, considered by the 2019 ELLE Beauty Grand Prix organization to be detrimental to its reputation, integrity or proper functioning, may result in my exclusion of the testing panel and the return of all products at my own expense.
