4. LIMITATIONS ON ENTRY
Participants may only enter the competition once, unless the Special Terms and Conditions specify otherwise. Only the first received entry will be valid if more than one entry is received from a participant.
5. HOW TO ENTER AND SELECTION OF WINNERS
For competitions that are a game of skill: entrants are required to submit a creative answer to a question.

Chance plays no part in determining the winners. The Promoter's decision in relation to any aspect of the competition is final and binding on every entrant. No correspondence will be entered into.
All prizes must be taken as offered and are not exchangeable, transferable, redeemable for cash or for resale. In the event that a prize is unavailable, the Promoter reserves the right to substitute a prize of equal or greater value. Prizes unclaimed after a period of one month from the date of notification of the winner may be forfeited and used by the Promoter at the discretion of the Promoter.
Prize collection method will be listed on the competition page. For certain competitions, prizes will be posted to the address nominated by the winner/s. No responsibility will be accepted by the Promoter for any lost or misdirected mail. Photographic identification of the winner will be required (examples include drivers licence/passport/student card where photo included) to claim a prize.
In special situations, and subject to the absolute discretion of the Promoter, a winner may nominate a designated representative to collect a prize. The representative will be required to present written authorisation from the winner and photographic identification of both the winner and their representative.
7. NOTIFICATION OF WINNERS
Winners will be notified by email or mail (for prizes being sent direct to the nominated address).
