As if I’d ever write something conventional here…

Nobody likes a winger

The first term of entry is that you agree not to complain… or make my life difficult (as deemed by me)… or write an email that starts with “I know this is against the rules but…”.

Doing so will disqualify you from the comp.

Tough love but… we want to host more giveaway’s but won’t if it causes a headache. Fair? #loveandbeloved 

Choose your prize

The first entrant drawn can choose which (1) prize they want and so on until all prizes are given away in order of winners drawn… Winners will be notified by email. If I don’t hear back from them within a week of the draw, I will offer first choice to the next winner and redraw a new winner for the last prize available.


Logistics are tough… Because I’m still walking, I may not send your prize until a month or so. Sorry about that.

Some of the prizes not in my possession will also take a month or so to be sent… #adventurelife.

Giving away prizes

…is very kind of you but all prizes are not transferable or exchangeable for cash, must be chosen within a week of the draw and used (where applicable) within a year and within times specified by the sponsor.

Love for international peeps

All prizes are exclusive to people living in Australia… EXCEPT where indicated. If we need to post it, we’ll mail to you no matter what country you’re in…. but won’t guarantee delivery 📦. There’s only so much we can control.

The peeps from Wildhorn and Sea to Summit will also mail their prizes to New Zealand residence.

Aussie rules.

Standard T&Cs for Australia apply except for the exceptions.
