The Free Prize Draw

8. The winner will be drawn at random by an independent judge (the 'Judge') from all complete entries received before the Closing Date.

The Prize

9. There will be one prize, subject to availability and the NHM’s right to substitute a prize of similar value in unforeseen circumstances. The prize is vouchers for five people (subject to any restrictions in Clause 10) for a hot air balloon flight, up to the value of £1,000, valid for an anytime flight or equivalent. The voucher will be valid for no more than 12 months from the date of the winner’s acceptance of the prize to be used at the winner’s discretion. The NHM reserves the right to purchase vouchers through an external supplier of their choice on behalf of the winner upon their claiming the prize. The voucher will include appropriate insurance.

10. The prize does not include travel and all other expenses, for which the winner will be solely responsible. There are some restrictions on flying in accordance with the Civil Aviation Authority; the minimum age for flying is 7 years old and there are some height and weight restrictions. The prize is therefore offered subject to these requirements and the NHM will bear no responsibility for any disappointment or loss occurring as a consequence of these conditions.

11. The NHM shall be entitled to cancel the prize without notice should the winner and/or his/her guest engage in any inappropriate, illegal or immoral behaviour, use excessive alcohol, artificial stimulants or illegal drugs, or act in any manner which brings or might bring the NHM or any person or organisation involved in the Free Prize Draw into public disrepute or places any person in distress or danger.

12. The winner will be notified by 30 October 2018 via the phone number provided at the time of entry. The name and county of the winner can be obtained by writing to Marketing Natural History Museum, Cromwell Road, SW7 5BD London within 12 months of the Closing Date.

14. The prize is non-transferable and the winner cannot request any alternative prize (cash or otherwise).

15. The Prize must be redeemed by the date notified to the winner by the external supplier (usually within 12 months of the voucher being awarded but subject to confirmation by the supplier)
