Woodlands Awards 2021 Terms & Conditions

1. Eligibility:

These awards are open to UK residents only.

Winners of Woodlands Awards in a previous year cannot win an award in the same award category for a second time, but they can submit an entry (or be entered) for a different award category in 2021.

2. Conditions of entry:

Entries for awards in any of the categories should be emailed to [email protected] with the category in the subject line. Entries must be entirely the entrant’s own original work. No responsibility is taken for entries that are lost, delayed, misdirected or incomplete, or cannot be delivered or entered for any other technical reason. Entry constitutes full and unconditional acceptance of these Terms & Conditions. Woodlands.co.uk reserves the right to disqualify anyone in breach of these Terms & Conditions.

By entering the competition entrants accept that, if they are a winner, their name and any submitted texts and photographs may be published on the Woodlands.co.uk website and in Living Woods online magazine, but only in the context of the Woodlands Awards.
