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
