If you are eligible, to enter, click on the link provided, and the survey home web page will appear. Follow the on-line instructions as they appear and when prompted, answer the survey questions (the survey questions are not the contest's skill-testing question). When the survey is completed, click the submit button on the final screen. If you have chosen to participate, your entry into the contest will be automatic.
The following requirements must be met for the person completing the survey to be validly entered into the contest and be eligible to win the contest prize: (i) all required survey questions must be answered, (ii) only one entry per individual.
As an alternative to completing the survey, an eligible person may enter the contest without completing the survey by legibly printing their name, telephone number, mailing address and email address on a piece of paper not larger than 8 ½ inches by 11 inches along with a unique handwritten essay of not less than 50 words, on 'how an insurance company can better meet the needs of insurance advisors' and mail these materials (in a single envelope bearing sufficient postage) to : Distribution Service Satisfaction Survey Contest, Dufferin Research, 3437 Grants Sideroad, Kinburn, ON, K0A 2H0.

Four prizes will be awarded, each consisting of one $500.00 VISA gift card.
A random selection to determine the winners will be made on or about August 19, 2022 from among all eligible entries received. The odds of being selected will depend upon the total number of eligible entries received. The winner will be notified by email to their submitted email address. If the notification email is not responded to within 15 calendar days, then that person will be deemed to have forfeited their prize, nothing will be awarded to them, and another winner will be selected in their place. Once notified, each winner will be required to correctly answer Sponsor's skill testing question without mechanical or other assistance in order to be declared a winner. If they fail to answer the skill testing question as required, then that person will be deemed to have forfeited their prize, nothing will be awarded to them, and another winner will be selected in their place.
