RTE'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 RTE will be final.

RTE competitions are not open to staff of RTE (be they employees or contractors), their immediate family members or associated companies including (but not limited to) the competition promotional partner(s) and SMS/IVR service provider(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.

Prizes are non-transferable and will only the awarded to the winner.
Unless otherwise stated, competitions entrants must be over 18 years old and resident in the island of Ireland in order to qualify as the prize winner. RTÉ reserves the right to request written proof of age of any competition 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, RTE 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.

RTÉ 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 3rd party, RTE 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 3rd party provider(s).
RTE 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 take part in a programme in order to win the prize. Where this is required and where an entrant fails to take part as required, or takes part but fails a subsequent test of skill which is required to win the prize, they will be deemed to have forfeited their opportunity to win the prize and will be disqualified from the competition.

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 RTE and/or the promoter(s) may require.

All competition entries must be received by RTE in the required format before the advertised closing date. Neither RTE nor its affiliated entities are responsible for printing or typographical errors in any materials related to RTE promotions; fraudulent, lost, late, misdirected, incomplete or altered entries; or entries which are lost due to computer or other technical malfunction.
RTE reserves the right to cancel, terminate, modify or suspend a competition and/or vary competition rules at any time without prior notice.

Neither RTE nor its agents accept any responsibility whatsoever for any death, injury or other damage, loss, expense or liability arising as a result of taking a prize. Now will RTE have any liability arising as a result of taking a prize. Nor will RTE have any liability or responsibility for any claim arising in connection with participation in any RTE competition or any of the prizes rewarded.

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

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

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