Where a prize is to be provided by a third party, LMG accept no responsibility whatsoever for the supply or non-supply or delay in supply of the prize, including, 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).

Acceptance of the prize constitutes permission to use the relevant winner's name, location 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 LMG and/or the promoter(s) may require.

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