This template has been designed to help those running prize competitions to ensure they are properly structured. The rules should help you to comply with the CAP Code provisions relating to prize competitions. Prize competitions should also comply with the wider laws of unfair trading and consumer protection, notably the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008.
These rules are not suitable for competitions which fall within the scope of UK gambling laws. For more information, see the guidance on the website of the Gambling Commission. If you are unsure whether your competition falls within those laws, you should take legal advice
The rules include a straightforward licence of copyright, allowing you to use and reuse competition entries. Those entering the competition should indicate their agreement to the rules, for example using a check-box on a web form.
