Great to see a contest where everyone would get a prize, something more than the normally offered T Shirt.Smile  But the topic could have been something better....Sealed Just out of curiosity, what is the capacity of the pen drive? Smile

@ Renie: I suggest you to make the statement 'multiple enteries are not allowed' bold. And also, mention the same here. People would most probably overlook the rule.

Maybe it is a pen drive already filled with data and images of Melbourne - sort of virtual trip  :)

Ranjith

Never thought it could be in that way too.... :-)

Good that you mentioned this. I did overlook the rule. Yours being the first comment here, people are most likely to read it :)

Ranjith

Smile I have first looked at that rules on the Terms and Conditions Page and not on the main contest page. Terms And Conditions are more interesting than the almost constant instructions on the main contest page. :-)

2.1 This Contest shall be open only to Eligible Applicants possessing a valid passport with validity till September 2013, as required for undertaking travel. 

Better,  

those who don't have a valid passport be allowed to participate for non-travel prizes.

else competition shall be for passport holders only.

 

Ranjith

I think that Renie needs to give a clarification on this matter. There appears to be no problem if non passport holders compete for the other prizes.

Avadhoot

@Ranjith: Yes clarification is must else in the case a blogger participating for a flash-drive wins the top prize -call it destiny,lady-luck or any good charm.......Tongue outthen sponsors shall be in a big problem.

It's better to to make it mandatory in the post  whether blogger holds a valid passport or not. those who don't have a valid passport should not be considered for the top prize.Cool

I don't have a pass port but a pen drive wouldn't be all that bad. We lot are blogging everyday so consider this just as an incentive to all that hard work :)

No one is going to check your passport dude. Just participate. Just make sure it is not so good that it ends up winning a trip to Australia.

I just read the T&C. Wish they'd said that everyone can participate but only 20+ can win the trip. 

Not being able to take part kinda sucks :[

I have never been to Melbourne,, do we have to imagine our tour and write??

Ranjith
from hyderabad

The contest page says: Tell us about the experiences you would love to bring back fromMelbourne 

Going by it, you shouldn't imagine that you've been to Melbourne. You just need to state how you would like the trip to be. However, the home page says, "Share with us your Melbourne exeprience". Probably, it is incorrect.

I assumed that I am eligible to participate till a few moments ago when I suddenly realised that I am not yet 20. Cry

Why don't you take an aging potion ?

Ranjith

Your reply reminds me of a contest ( .... ) held in our college where the participants were presented with different hypothetical biological statements and were asked to enact a small play ( similar to an add) related to it. One of the topic is quite opposite to what you have stated: A potion that makes one young. Smile

The embarrasing thing was that even I have gone for it assuming that we would be asked only to prepare a poster on that topic but the contest consisted of both the thing: poster and play. While everyone were too bold in their roles ( of couse, not fit to be rated U ), our team of three was quite dignified with respect to teh language used for which the audience laughed well and also commented that it was an innocent attempt! Undecided

Interesting, Ranjith. Maybe you should write a blog post about it. By the way, I got my idea from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. I am sure all the Potterheads will appreciate the reference. However though I like HP, I am not a Potterhead.

Nirati

I just read "aging potion" and hopped on to the thread! :D

Like the one Fred&George had taken to try and get their names into the GOF? They failed tho. :P

Potterhead-edness #FTW. If that's a thing. If not, there most definitely should be.Yeah, I'm done now :P

@Blahblaholic If you find that agin potion somewhere, share it with the members here. Many are in need of it. Tongue out

Nirati

TSW's reply was meant for Ranjith or someone else or me? 30? *faints*

Aging poting. I know how to brew it. I'd tell you but then I'd have to Obliviate you.

(For the uniniated people who haven't read Harry Potter, sucks to be you *ahem*, I meant to explain that Obliviate is the memory erasing charm done on Lockhart in the COS in case you've seen the movies.)

Terms and Condition #8: By entering the Contest, Eligible Applicants will opt in for marketing communications and promotional information from Tourism Victoria in any form, i.e. e-mail, messages on mobile phone, etc.

It is an Australian government organization. So we can hope they won't unecessarily spam us or sell our data.
