This competition (the "Competition") is open to anyone aged 18 or over, no matter where in the world they live. This Competition is organised by Go Travelling Ltd t/a On The Go Tours (the "Organiser")
You (the "Entrant") may enter the Competition by completing the entry form ("Registering"), including uploading of your travel photographs (the "Photographs"). All Entrants confirm their acceptance of these terms and conditions by Entering the Competition.
You enter the Competition as an individual, but prize for the winner is 1 of 8 HOLIDAYS FOR TWO PEOPLE with On The Go Tours ("The Prize"). As there are 8 prizes, there will be 8 winners of the competition (the "Winners"). The Prize includes international flights and tour arrangements but excludes tourist visas, vaccinations and travel insurance required to travel to the countries detailed in the Prize. Any other expenditure items not detailed within these Terms and Conditions will be the responsibility of the Winners.
The opening date for receipt of entries to the Competition is 1 January 2015 and the closing date for receipt of entries to the Competition is 31 December 2015.
Each Entrant will have a unique competition page for each of the photographs they enter into the Competition. Entrants and the general public can then VOTE for their favourite photos. Additionally each entry/photo can be shared through various social media channels like Facebook and Twitter.
A short list of finalists (the "Finalists") will be selected from all legitimate competition Entrants, based on the quality of Photographs submitted, as judged by Management at On The Go Tours. The number of votes that photo entries receive will go some way towards short listing of the finalists, but this will not be the only measure used. For example, a stunning photograph that truly evokes a sense of travel, emotion and the destination the photo was taken in, can still make the short list even though this entry might not be the most popular in terms of votes. Any Entrants who 'spam' the competition by buying/faking votes will be automatically disqualified from the Competition by the Organiser. The Finalists will be announced in January 2016. Entries from the Finalists will then be put to vote, and there will be one Winner for each of the 8 prizes on offer. Winners will be announced in February 2016 and each Winner will be notified by email. If a Winner does not confirm they are claiming the prize within 5 days of being notified, then the competition Organiser, On The Go Tours, will select another Winner.
Photographs must not contain any material that might be considered offensive in nature for viewing in a public forum. Photographs must also not breach any copyright laws and must be the original material of the Entrants. The Organisers accept no responsibility whatsoever for any such breach by Entrants. In addition, any such breach by an Entrant will result in their disqualification from the Competition. Entrants agree that Photographs entered will be used for display on the website of the Organiser.
Photographs uploaded should be no more that 5MB in size. Please ensure that there are not borders/frames around your photos and that all photos are correctly oriented i.e. portrait photos are uploaded the right way up, as are landscape photos. Photos that do no comply to these guidelines may not be displayed for view in the Competition by the Organiser.
In addition, photos should be representative of the country they were taken in i.e be of landscapes, sites, people, wildlife etc. For example, a photo of yourself at a swimming pool or with friends in a nondescript cafe will not be accepted as a valid entry from the Organiser.
Please note that you need to ensure that the country your photo was taken in is entered correctly on your competition entry form and is not the country that you are from. Entries with incorrect information in this regard may not be displayed for view in the Competition by the Organiser.
Finally, please note that entries with inappropriate images and written content and entries that seek to mention or promote other organisations may be removed at the discretion of the Organiser.
Photo entries that are approved will then be displayed on our website, for others to view and also for others to vote and comment on. In addition, the country where the photo was taken, the 'feeling' you entered about the photo as well any further comments about the photo that you entered will be displayed. Regarding privacy, the only information displayed will be your name and country of origin and the tour you have selected to win. Under no circumstances will the Organiser share any additional personal details provided by you when entering the Competition.
