Entry instructions

To enter, you must, during the Competition Period:

(a)                  create a video of yourself, (max 2 minutes) telling us why you should win, and which of the three hike destinations (New Zealand, East Africa or Australia) you would prefer to participate in and why; and

(b)                  visit the Website relevant to your country of residence, locate the entry page and fill out and submit the online entry form, including by uploading your video and providing all other requested information.

If you do not select one preferred hike destination from New Zealand, East Africa or Australia, your entry will be invalid. 

The Promoter is not responsible if your mobile device/desktop is not sufficiently capable for the purpose of submitting an entry, including having the requisite video capability.

How many winners will there be and how will they be chosen?

Entries will be separated according to which of the three hike destinations were selected: New Zealand, East Africa or Australia. 

This is a game of skill.  A judging panel appointed by the Promoter will review each valid entry and will judge the entries based on creativity, originality and brand suitability/practicality to determine the winners.  Chance plays no part in how the winners will be selected. 

There will be 3 winners.  The valid entry judged to be the best in respect of each hike destination will win the prize for that destination.

All judging decisions are as determined by the Promoter, in their absolute discretion.
