your help to get my site top of google, Viagra or a share of the 44
billion $ you have in a safe deposit box etc etc...

The inevitable small print
Competition Number 2 is open to all; see this
page for the previous competition By entering this competition
you agree to the following Terms & Conditions: In the event of a tie,
prize money will be split equally, the earliest dated entry will receive the
print prize(s). Prize money will ONLY be paid via PayPal.
Entries using other fonts/sizes will be disqualified.
Capitalised and/or overlapping X's are not permitted; if you wish to place them
so close to each other, please buy another entry! Entries that arrive without payment of the entry fee will be deemed
invalid and returned. Please do not use Hotmail to send entries or queries.
the winner and runner-ups will eventually be identified by their first name and
I reserve the right to use their first name to publicise this and future competitions
in a similar way to competition number 1
running costs will be deducted from all monies received; I will not be deducting the retail price of
print prizes, only costs, ie ink/paper/laminate film/p & p/PayPal charges and general administration
costs etc. I'm not trying to make a profit but equally I'm not trying
to make a loss either. The three main reasons I'm staging this competition
are, 1) to help young musicians, 2) to publicise this site and my photography
and 3) for fun!
I'm not a lawyer and in the event that this competition infringes
an obscure rule of law and is forced to be cancelled, every effort will be made
to return entry fees. Rest assured I will do my best to fight any 'jobs worth'
interference! If for any reason these T&Cs have to be changed, I will
email all entrants.
Queries, comments, questions, suggestions etc, please email Tim
Rainey at firstname.lastname@example.org
