Dublin City FM’s decision in relation to selection of prize winner(s) is final and no correspondence will be entered into. In the event of any dispute regarding the rules, conduct or the results of a competition the decision of Dublin City FM will be final.

Dublin City FM reserves the right to request written proof of age of any competition winner.
Prizes are non-transferable and will only be awarded to the winner. No cash alternative will be awarded in lieu of stated prize(s). If, due to circumstances beyond its control, a prize becomes unavailable Dublin City FM and/or the promoter(s) reserves the right to substitute a prize of equal value. Use of a false name or address by a competition entrant will disqualify them from receiving any prize.

Dublin City FM reserves the right to change prize details without notice and all prizes, including holiday travel dates, are subject to availability. Some competitions may require entrants to take part in a programme in order to win the prize. Where this is required and where an entrant fails to take part as required or takes part but fails a subsequent test of skill which is required to win the prize, that contestant will be deemed to have forfeited their opportunity to win the prize and will be disqualified from the competition.
