Your entry into and participation in any Facebook Competition communicated via any post on The New Zealand International Science Festival’s (NZISF) Facebook or Instagram page (Competition Post) or promoted on any NZISF communications channel is deemed acceptance of these Terms and Conditions which include information on how to enter and win prizes.
Who Can Enter?
Entry is open to residents of New Zealand. You are not eligible to enter if you are an employee of the Promoter or its related corporations or agencies, or a member of an employee’s immediate family.
Each promotion will commence with a Competition Post and will finish when the prize draw is complete and winner(s) announced (‘Promotional Period’).
How to Enter
To enter any Promotion and be eligible to win, you must, during the Promotional Period, follow the instructions set out in the Competition Post. You are not permitted to use any automated entry software or any other mechanical or electronic means that allows you to automatically enter, or enter repeatedly, and you are responsible for any associated costs such as internet access.
Prize draws will be held at the time stipulated in the Competition Post. Winners will be randomly drawn from all eligible entries or selected based on the criteria provided in the Competition Post. Prizes are not transferable, changeable, or redeemable for cash, unless otherwise set out in the Competition Post.
Notification to Winner(s)
Winners will be announced on the NZISF social media pages where the Competition was first advertised. The Promoter may also send a private message to the winner’s account on the platform they entered through.
Accepting the Prize
Following the social media announcement, winners need to send a private message to the NZISF social media account with the winner’s contact details. This will enable the Promoter to supply their prize and will be deemed to be acceptance of the Prize. If the winner does not accept the prize within seven (7) days of being notified, the prize will be forfeited. The Promoter reserves the right to award any forfeited prize to another eligible entrant. If the winner of the prize is under the age of 18 years, the prize will be awarded to the winner’s parent or guardian.
