We retain the right to amend these terms occasionally at our sole discretion.

1. These general competition terms and conditions (“General Terms”) apply to any promotion, prize draw or competition operated by Trafalgar Releasing in any media, including without limitation on social media platforms.


2. These General Terms apply in addition to any specific terms and conditions which may be mentioned in any promotion of, or messages about, the relevant promotion, prize draw or competition on any platform (“Specific Terms”). To the extent that there is any inconsistency between these General Terms and the relevant Specific Terms, then the Specific Terms shall prevail.


3. By submitting an entry to any competition to which these General Terms apply, you are agreeing to these General Terms along with any relevant Specific Terms. You acknowledge that such agreement is legally binding, and you warrant and represent to Trafalgar Releasing that you have the legal capacity to enter into and accept such binding. If you disagree and cannot provide the previously mentioned warranty, you should not enter the competition.

5.1.4        Competitions are not open to any employees of Trafalgar Releasing (or the wider Trafalgar Entertainment Group) or any third parties associated with the operation or promotion of the relevant competition, or in each case, members of their immediate families (including any live-in partner).

5.1.5        Trafalgar Releasing reserves the right in its sole discretion to ask for evidence to verify an entrant’s age, identity and/or eligibility at any time and to use any channels and methods available to check any details provided.

5.2.4        Where the Specific Terms require content to be submitted via a public forum, such as social media platforms, valid entries must be visible to the public (i.e., your account settings do not restrict or limit who can view your post. Your entry won’t count if our team can’t see it!).


5.2.5        Entrants may be required to provide their full name, full contact telephone number (including area code if providing a landline number) or other method of contact (if applicable), email address and/or any other information as specified at the time of entering the competition.

5.2.8        In the event of any fault, mistake, misunderstanding or dispute concerning the correctness or acceptability of any answers given by entrants or the operation of any part of the competition or prize draw service, networks or systems, the decision of Trafalgar Releasing shall be final.


5.2.9        Where entrants are required to submit a contribution (which may include but is not limited to photograph(s), video, audio, live-media images, drawings and/or other similar designs) as part of their entry, the entrant agrees as follows:


(a)           Age Restrictions: that you are aged 18 or over or have obtained permission from a parent or legal guardian as required by Clause 5.1.2 of these General Terms.


(b)           Consents: By submitting content, you confirm that you have all the relevant rights and consents required to allow us and any parties associated with us or the relevant film to use that content. Where your content contains the name or image of any other person or people you confirm, you have the consent of all those people to submit the content or the consent of their parents or legal guardians if they are under 18 years old or are a vulnerable adult.


(c)           Restrictions on what you can submit: You must not submit content that is in any way defamatory, obscene, unlawful, harmful, offensive or inappropriate or that would constitute contempt of court or expose us to any civil or criminal proceedings.  Your content must not contain anything that may have the effect of being harassing, threatening, abusive or hateful or which degrades, discriminates against or intimidates an individual or group of individuals on the basis of religion, gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, age, disability or any other legally protected characteristic.

Your entry or content must not contain anything that infringes the rights of a third party. Your application or content must not contain any third-party content such as music, third-party trademarks, logos, location signage, photographs, artwork or sculpture unless you have consent from the owner to include that third-party content.  We reserve the right to reject entries containing third-party content if you cannot provide satisfactory evidence that it has been cleared for our use as described by these terms and conditions.

You agree not to infringe any laws in making your application or content. You agree not to submit files that contain viruses or other harmful programs. Further, you must not endanger yourself or others or take any unnecessary risks to produce or make your content.


(d)        How we can use your content: As between you and Trafalgar Releasing, you retain all ownership rights in your content. However, by submitting content, you grant us a licence (which means permission) to use, edit, reproduce, record, modify, enhance, encode, translate, distribute, play, perform, make available to other users, prepare derivative works of and to display your content (with or without advertising and sponsorship) by any media or methods whether now known or later developed. This licence may be exercised at our sole discretion worldwide at any time.

You irrevocably and unconditionally waive, in respect of your content, all moral rights to which you may be entitled and any broadly equivalent rights in any territory of the world.  This waiver is made in favour of us but shall also extend to our sub-licensees, assignees and successors in title.




5.3.1        The prize is as specified in the Specific Terms. Unless otherwise stated in the Specific Terms, each entrant is limited to winning one prize per competition or prize draw.


5.3.2           The prize is subject to availability and winner confirmation, i.e., Trafalgar Releasing has contacted the winner and confirmed eligibility. The prize is also subject to the terms and conditions of the prize provider, their agents, and where applicable to the terms of the venue and/or the manufacturer.


5.3.3           The winner may be required to provide their signature as proof of their agreement to relevant waivers, releases and/or consents when taking up the prize. Failure to sign all pertinent documentation may result in forfeiture of the prize.


5.3.4           The prize excludes all other costs and arrangements not expressly included in the prize (as stated in the Specific Terms). Additional charges and expenses incurred for goods, services, attractions, facilities, upgrades, activities, and events not expressly included in the prize are payable solely by the winner (and their companion(s)) where applicable. Trafalgar Releasing will not be held liable where such charges and/or expenses are incurred, and no refund or reimbursement will be made. Trafalgar Releasing will accept no responsibility where the winner cannot pay any such charges and/or expenses in full.


5.3.5           For delivery of the prize, you may be required to be available at a specified time and place.


5.3.6           No cash equivalent (where applicable) or alternative prize will be given at the winner’s request; the prize is non-transferable and non-exchangeable. If the winner decides to take up and then sell on the prize (where such onward sale is permitted), Trafalgar Releasing will not be required to provide any guidance on such a sale, and the winner acknowledges that the onward sale price may be lower than the retail or advertised price. However, Trafalgar Releasing reserves the right to change the prize or any part of the prize to an alternative of equal or greater value for any reason in its sole discretion, including without limitation due to circumstances beyond its control or if any part of the prize becomes unavailable. If, for any reason, the winner chooses not to take up the prize or any part of the prize, Trafalgar Releasing reserves the right to ask the winner to confirm this in writing and whether or not such confirmation is received, Trafalgar Releasing will be able to retain or dispose of the prize (or part of the prize) at its discretion.


5.3.7           Trafalgar Releasing may refuse to provide a prize, or seek its recovery, in the event of non-entitlement under the Relevant Terms or an entrant’s breach of the Relevant Terms, fraud or dishonesty, including but not limited to the use of technology which enables an entrant to evade applicable charges when entering the promotion.


5.3.8           Trafalgar Releasing or the prize provider(s) will endeavour to deliver the prize to the winner within twenty-eight (28) days from the date of winner confirmation unless stated otherwise in the Specific Terms if the prize is time critical Trafalgar Releasing or the prize provider(s) endeavour to deliver the prize to the winner as soon as reasonably practicable before the necessary time to take up the prize.


5.3.9           Trafalgar Releasing, the prize provider and their agents will not be liable where a prize has been lost, damaged or stolen following delivery, and such prize will not be replaced.




5.4.1           Selection: Where the winner is randomly selected, the draw for the winner will take place within one week of the closing date and time for all entries unless otherwise specified in the Specific Terms. Unless stated otherwise in the Specific Terms, the winner will be the first entry drawn randomly from all valid entries, subject to eligibility and winner confirmation (and, for competitions where entrants are required to answer one or more questions, answering such question(s) correctly). Where the winner is not randomly selected, the Specific Terms will detail the judging criteria for choosing the winning entry.


5.4.2           Contact: The winner will be contacted as soon as practicable on or after the competition’s closing date as detailed in Specific Terms. Reasonable efforts will be made to contact a winner via contact methods provided when entering the promotion or such other method of contact deemed appropriate by Trafalgar Releasing in its sole discretion in the circumstances. Unless the prize is time-critical, Trafalgar Releasing will try to contact the winner a reasonable number of times over a two-week period.


Where the prize must be taken up within a specific timeframe (as detailed in the Specific Terms), the competition will be considered “time critical”. As a winner needs to be found before the time to take up the prize passes, the Specific Terms will indicate the date(s) when entrants must be contactable, and Trafalgar Releasing will try to contact the winner a maximum of three times during normal business hours of such period.


If the winner cannot be contacted or successful contact is not made within the time periods set out in this Clause 5.4.2, or if the winner fails to meet any of the eligibility requirements or is otherwise unable to comply with the Relevant Terms, this may result in forfeiture of the prize and Trafalgar Releasing reserves the right to disqualify that entrant (without further liability to that entrant) and offer the prize to the next eligible entrant and thereafter until a winner is found.


5.4.3           Publicity: Unless you expressly notify us otherwise at the time we contact you to confirm your status as the winner, you acknowledge that by accepting the Prize, you grant us the right to use your content, your contribution, your name, voice, likeness, photographs and any biographical material concerning you in connection with the competition, the promotion and exploitation of the content to which the competition relates, and throughout the world in all media in perpetuity (which means forever).


6. By entering a competition, you agree that we may collect and use your personal data as detailed in these General Terms or as indicated in Trafalgar Releasing’s Privacy Policy.


7. You agree that you do not have any commercial relationship with Trafalgar Releasing, its affiliates, licensors or licensees and that you are not an agent of Trafalgar Releasing.


8. The Relevant Terms are available in English only and shall be exclusively governed by and construed under the laws of England. You irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.
