Competitions

From time to time I do run competitions (or more accurately sweepstakes). Here are the rules:

Prizes will be awarded to first correct entry drawn after the closing date via random.org
The start and end dates of competitions will appear on the competition post. Competitions will close at midnight on the closing date.
The judges’ decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into.
Entries should include your name and email addresses.
No purchase is necessary to enter or win.
Entries are made by leaving a comment on the relevant blog post (not the Facebook page) after “liking” Becoming you’s Facebook page as well as the relevant sponsor’s Facebook page.
Additional entries can be made by subscribing to Becoming you’s email newsletter or sharing the competition on Facebook or Twitter and leaving an additional comment for each action. Be kind. Share this competition with those you truly think will be interested. No one likes spam!
The number of eligible entries received determines the odds of winning.Becoming you reserves the right to remove any entries deemed inappropriate.
The winners will be announced 48 hours after the closing date. This excludes weekends and public holidays.
Prizes will only be issued after the close of the competition. Please allow for a two week delivery period. This can change depending on the sponsor and the prize will typically be delivered directly from the sponsor or sponsors representative.
Becoming you will notify the selected winner by email on the day after the closing date of the competition. Failure to respond to the notification email and accept the prize within 14 days of being contacted by Becoming you results in forfeiture of the prize.
Becoming you is not responsible for false or incorrectly entered contact information.
The prizes are not transferable, nor can they be converted into cash.
The competition is open to all readers of Becoming you, unless specified. Prizes will only be delivered within South Africa.
All travelling costs to claim the prize will be at the winners’ expense, unless specified.

Winners are not eligible for another prize for 6 months after the closing date of the competition they have won.
The prizes must be taken up within 6 months of the closing date, at a time to suit both the sponsor and the winner, unless otherwise specified.
Becoming you has the right to publicize the winner’s names on Facebook or Becoming you blog for promotional purposes.
Becoming you and it’s associate sponsors reserve the right to cancel the competition without notice at any time, if deemed necessary in their opinion, or if circumstances arise outside of their control. In the event of such cancellation, all participants agree to waive any rights that they may have in terms of this competition and acknowledge that they have no recourse against Becoming you and the sponsors.
