Any specific rules, entry instructions and any other specific details relating to the particular Competition or the Competition prize or gift (“Prizes”) published on this website or in any media which features the Competition (e.g. the Sensational Kids Facebook page) together with these Competition terms and conditions form the Competition terms ("Terms"). Entry and participation in any Competition shall be deemed an unconditional acceptance by you of these Terms.

Eligibility to enter competitions

  1. You must be a resident of South Africa to enter the Competition. Employees freelancers and contractors of Sensational Kids, their families, press, agencies or any persons directly or indirectly connected with a particular Competition are not eligible to enter such Competition. Sensational Kids reserve the right to verify the eligibility of all entrants.
  2. In the event of more than one eligible person entering the competition, winners will be selected via a random draw using random.org.
  3. Unless otherwise stated, only one entry per person will be permitted, and multiple entries will be void and the entrant(s) disqualified.
  4. Proof of eligibility to enter must be provided to Sensational Kids on request.
  5. You must enter any Competition using your legal name. Sensational Kids reserves the right to disqualify anyone entering a competition using a false name. By entering a Competition, you hereby warrant that all information submitted by you is true, current and complete.

Claims to the prize

  1. In order to enable Sensational Kids to correctly identify genuine claims and to eliminate non-genuine, deceitful or fraudulent claims, evidence of Competition entry will be obtained directly from the sensationalkids.co.za database for the checking of such a claim. In addition, Sensational Kids reserves the right to request proof of identity, age and address in the form of your ID book, passport or driving licence, and proof of your address in the form of a utility bill. Sensational Kids may also carry out an interview in order to validate such a claim. Interviews may be by telephone or in person with you and may be recorded.
  2. If Sensational Kids becomes aware of any fraud, deceit, misconduct or similar action during or in relation to a Competition which relates in any way to a claim, then that claim will not be met unless it is proven to the satisfaction of Sensational Kids, that you had no actual or imputed knowledge of such fraud or deceit or similar action. For the avoidance of doubt (and without limitation), if you provide an incorrect name, age, address or other incorrect information in relation to the entry, then Sensational Kids reserves the absolute right to treat that entry as invalid (whether or not such information comes to light before or after you have made the claim). If the fraud, deceit, misconduct or other action is only discovered after the Prize has been released, you undertake to return the same (or provide compensation) to Sensational Kids forthwith upon notification by Sensational Kids.
  3. Failure to claim a Prize in the time or manner specified for the relevant Competition will make any claim invalid.
  4. Winners of the Prize will be notified within 7 working days of the competition closing date. Prizes must be claimed within 28 days of notification.

  2. In the event of unforeseen circumstances or circumstances outside Sensational Kids' reasonable control, Sensational Kids reserves the right to offer an alternative prize of equal value. No cash will be offered.
  3. In the event of there being more claims than Prizes available, the name of the valid claimants will go into a draw for the Prize.
