Journal Media Limited (JML) Competitions: Standard Terms & Conditions

JML's decision in relation to selection of prize winner(s) is final and no correspondence will be entered into.

In the event of any dispute regarding the rules, conduct or the results of a competition the decision of JML will be final.

JML competitions are not open to staff of JML (be they employees or contractors), their immediate family members or associated companies including (but not limited to) the competition promotional partner(s). For these purposes an "immediate family member" includes a spouse, partner, child, step child, grandchild, brother, step brother, sister, step sister, parent, step parent or legal guardian.

Unless otherwise stated, competition entrants must be over 18 years old and resident in the island of Ireland in order to qualify as the prize winner. JML reserves the right to request written proof of age of any competition winner.

Prizes are non-transferable and will only be awarded to the winner.

Unless otherwise stated, where multiple prizes are on offer in a single competition only 1 win per household will be permitted.

No cash alternative will be awarded in lieu of stated prize(s).

If, due to circumstances beyond its control, a prize becomes unavailable JML and/or the promoter(s) reserves the right to substitute a prize of equal value.

Use of a false name or address by a competition entrant will disqualify them from receiving any prize.

JML and/or the promoter(s) will endeavour to deliver all prizes within 28 days of winning. Where this is not possible the winner(s) will be notified of a delay.

Unless otherwise stated, all taxes, insurance, fees and surcharges on any prize are the sole responsibility of the winner.

Where a prize is to be provided by a third party, JML accepts no responsibility whatsoever for the supply or non-supply or purported supply or delay in supply of the prize, including without limitation, the failure of the winner to receive ownership of or use the prize. Where appropriate, prize winners are required to complete all applicable booking and/or other formalities directly with the specified third party provider(s).

JML reserves the right to change prize details without notice and all prizes, including holiday travel dates, are subject to availability.

Some competitions may require entrants to submit content in order to win the prize. Where this is required, entry constitutes permission to use the submitted content for publication across all JML platforms and prize winners agree that submitted content can be used for any related promotional activities as JML and/or the promoter(s) may require.

Acceptance of the prize constitutes permission to use the relevant winner's name, hometown and likeness for purposes of advertising, promotion or publicity in any media without additional compensation and prize winners agree to take part in such related promotional activities as JML and/or the promoter(s) may require.

All competition entries must be received by JML in the required format before the advertised closing date.

JML reserves the right to cancel, terminate, modify or suspend a competition and/or vary competition rules at any time without prior notice.

JML does not accept any responsibility whatsoever for any death, injury or other damage, loss, expense or liability arising as a result of taking a prize. Nor will JML have any liability or responsibility for any claim arising in connection with participation in any JML competition or any of the prizes rewarded.

Prizes not claimed within specified time limit will be deemed to have been forfeited and JML may dispose of such prizes without any liability to the winner.

Any person found to be in disregard of these rules will be disqualified automatically.

JML reserves the right to disqualify any contestant for any reason whatsoever in its sole discretion.

Participation in JML competitions denotes acceptance of these terms and conditions and any additional competition specific terms and conditions which may be advertised.

JML does not accept any responsibility whatsoever for any technical failure or malfunction or any other problem in any network, system, server, provider, or otherwise which may result in entries being lost or not properly registered or recorded and contestants hereby waive any claim whatsoever for any losses, costs, damages and expenses arising from any such problems.
