Contest Policy

This is my standard contest policy and will be applied to all contests/giveaways on this site (unless explicit differences are made clear on the individual contest page).

  • All contests are to for UK residents only (unless otherwise stated).
  • All contests are only open to those 13 years of age or older.
  • Entrants aged under 17 must have permission from their parent or guardian, and should not provide their own email, but that of their parent or guardian.
  • Prizes provided by myself will be sent out as soon as possible after the contest, but can take up to four weeks or more.
  • I have no control over, and am not responsible for, prizes sent out via a 3rd party (author, publisher etc).
  • Winners will be announced on my blog and notified via email/twitter.
  • Winners must respond within 3 days or the contest will be re-drawn.
  • I am not responsible for items lost in the mail.
  • I hold the right to end a contest before its original deadline without any prior notice.
  • One entry per person. (apart from where bonus entries are offered, please see individual contests for information.)
  • Where a contest offers bonus entires such as following me on twitter, I reserve the right to disqualify any entries where accounts are clearly used solely or mainly just to enter competitions.
  • I hold the right to disqualify any entry as I see fit.

Other important info:

  • Be sure to follow contest guidelines.
  • Be sure to check contest deadlines!
  • Be sure to check who can enter the contest (ie: international or local entries).
