Introduction

  1. The Festive Social Competition (the "Competition") is run by WorldRemit Ltd. (company no. 07110878) whose registered office is at 62 Buckingham Gate, London, SW1E 6AJ ("WorldRemit", "we" or "us").
  2. By entering this Competition, you agree you have read and accept these terms and conditions. We reserve the right to verify any entries and winners. We may refuse to award the Prize where we have reasonable grounds to believe that there has been a breach of these terms and conditions. You can access these terms and conditions at any time during the Competition at www.moneyinsafehands.com. We suggest that you keep a copy of these terms for your own records.

The Competition

  1. The aim of the Competition is to encourage you to create and submit to Facebook a video about yourself and a friend/family member whom you would like to spend time with this festive season. The entrant whose video is judged as the most compelling and engaging video will win return flights to visit their friend/family member overseas.

The Prize

  1. The prize is economy-class return flights for one person to visit their friend/ family member identified in their personalised video (the "Prize"). The Prize may include reasonable transportation costs to and from the airport if the winner or friend/family member doesn't live close to the airport; this is entirely at our discretion, and subject always to a maximum cost of £500.
  2. The Prize is as stated and no cash or other alternatives will be offered. The Prize is not transferable. The Prize is subject to availability and we reserve the right to substitute any Prize with another of equivalent value without giving notice. The Prize may be considered a taxable benefit and the winner will be directly responsible for any taxes payable on the Prize. The Prize does not include insurance, expenses (other than the reasonable transportation costs set out at paragraph 4 above) or accommodation.

The Winner

  1. The winner will be chosen at the discretion of an appointed panel of WorldRemit judges.
  2. The winning video will be the video judged as the most compelling and engaging video from the pool of all eligible entries. In deciding which video will win the Competition, the WorldRemit judges will, in particular, be looking for a video that tells a story, the relevant parts of which will be:
    1. the distance between you and your friend/family member;
    2. the location where your friend/family member (whom you'd like to visit) lives; and/or
    3. the length of time that has passed since you last saw your friend/family member.
    Based on these criteria, the WorldRemit judges will make a subjective decision on which entrant is the winner.

    3. WorldRemit may film and otherwise record your journey and reunion with your friend/family member.
  4. You grant WorldRemit the right to use your name and recorded likeness in any media, promotion, publicity, advertising or platform of our choosing. You confirm that you will cooperate fully with us, including with our film team while they make a recording of your trip. You agree that we may use your name and/or image for these purposes and that you will not be paid.
  5. The winner will be notified by email and/or direct message on Facebook within thirty 30 days of the Closing Date. If the winner cannot be contacted or does not claim the Prize within three (3) days of notification, we reserve the right to withdraw the offer of the Prize from the winner and pick a replacement winner.
