The Man Booker 50 challenge - terms and conditions

Competition details form part of these terms and conditions.

Entry is open to residents of all countries but the prize will only include travel within the UK.

The entrants must be aged 18 or over. Proof of identity and age may be required.  No cash value alternatives are available.  Winners must be available during the festival dates and are responsible for their own travel to and from the festival at the Southbank Centre, London.

Entrants must be in possession of a valid public Instagram account to enter the competition.

The prizes are as stated (two tickets to five talks of the winner's choice - excluding workshops -  at the Man Booker 50 festival at the Southbank Centre in London from 6 - 8 July 2018), are not transferable to another individual and no cash or other alternatives will be offered.

The winner is responsible for expenses and arrangements not specifically included in the prize, including international travel, any necessary travel documents, passports and visas. Prizes are subject to availability and the prize suppliers' terms and conditions (Southbank Centre).

The promoter (the Man Booker Prize) reserve the right to amend or alter the terms of competitions and reject entries from entrants not entering into the spirit of the competition.

In the event of a prize being unavailable, the promoter reserves the right to offer an alternative prize of equal or greater value.

The winner agrees to the use of their name and Instagram handle and will co-operate with any other reasonable requests by the promoter relating to any post-winning publicity.

Unless stated otherwise the winner will be selected from all entries tracked on Instagram via comments on the challenge launch post on our Instagram channel and the hashtag #ManBooker50, received by the closing date (31 May 2018).

Reasonable efforts will be made to contact the winner. If the winner cannot be contacted, or are unable to comply with these terms and conditions, the promoter reserves the right to offer the prize to the next eligible entrant selected.

Failure to respond and/or provide an email address for delivery of the festival e-tickets and organise travel/accommodation, or failure to meet the eligibility requirements may result in forfeiture of the prize.

Where applicable, the decision of the judges is final based on the criteria of the promotion (number of winners read and presentation of #ManBooker50 challenge progress on Instagram) and no correspondence will be entered into over this decision. Competitions may be modified or withdrawn at any time.
