Voting prize draw rules

Prize draws for those taking part in the voting will take at regular intervals up to 25th August 2018, with the prize(s) on offer at any given point stated on the prizes page. The winner(s) for each prize period will be randomly selected from the list of people that voted in the prize window. Entry is made by casting at least one vote for a poster during the given prize period. Comedy Poster Awards will contact the winners using the details they signed in with. Winners have seven days to reply and accept their prize; failure to accept within the allotted time will result in a new winner being drawn. Prizes are non transferable and no cash alternative will be offered. Comedy Poster Awards reserve the right to change or remove the offer of any prize at any time. Winners agree that their name may be publicised. Prizes will only be posted to UK addresses. Please allow two months for delivery.
