Radio 3AW Melbourne Pty Ltd (3AW) runs competitions across the station’s programs, including competitions that involve an element of chance in order to determine the winner and competitions that are games of skill, where the winner is determined by assessing entries against judging criteria.
By entering into a competition to win a Prize, you (You, Entrant) acknowledge and accept these general terms and conditions of entry (Terms), as amended by 3AW from time to time and displayed on its webpage at http://www.3aw.com.au/ unless other terms and conditions specific to the competition apply to the exclusion of these Terms.

Prize Notification, Restrictions and Fulfilment
The names of winners may be announced on air or listed on 3AW’s website at http://www.3aw.com.au/win and by contacting winners directly.
It can take up to six weeks for winners to receive their Prize.
Unless otherwise determined by 3AW in its absolute discretion:
- only one Minor Prize can be won by an Entrant OR a member of the same household within an eight week period; and
- only one Major Prize can be won in a competition conducted by 3AW or any station of the Macquarie Media Limited radio network by an Entrant within a twelve month period.
Winners cannot exchange Prizes for cash or for any other prize.
Once the prize has been dispatched by 3AW or the third party responsible for administering the Prize, 3AW does not accept responsibility regarding breakages or loss of parcel. In case of lost mail the winner will need to liaise directly with their local post office and replacements are not guaranteed.
In some cases, winners may be required to collect their Prize from the studios/reception of 3AW. If a winner is unable to do so, the winner will have the option of incurring the cost of a courier or postage, or will forfeit the Prize.
If a Prize is not available due to unforeseen circumstances, 3AW reserves the right to exchange the prize for something of equal or greater value.
In the event that for any reason whatsoever a winner does not take an element of the Prize in the time stipulated by 3AW then that element of the prize will be forfeited by the winner and cash will not be awarded in lieu of that element of the prize.
When a Prize is for entry to or participation in a show, concert or an event (Event), and the Event is cancelled, 3AW is not liable to replace the Prize as such Prizes are conditional upon the Event taking place. Replacement Prizes will be at the discretion of the 3AW.
