To enter you must, during the Competition Period:

Each particular winner will receive a corresponding Voucher Prize.

 

  • Winner: The first batch of winners will be chosen from the successful Qualifying Entries received during July 2022, by way of random draw at or before 16h00 on the final business day of July 2022.

We will make two direct attempts to obtain such information. Once we have received this information and validated the particular winner, we will deliver or otherwise arrange delivery of the corresponding prize to him/her as soon as possible, subject to section 10 below. Proof of identity and a completed competition release form will be required in order to validate the particular winner. We will select winners who have taken the steps set out in section 4 above and who are in compliance with these terms and conditions by way of random draw, at our sole discretion. Regarding the application of these terms and conditions and the selection of a winner and his/her prize in terms hereof, our decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into with a competition participant other than the particular winner.
