Selection of winners
Are there any requirements for the selection of winners and award of prizes?
None but it is strongly recommended to set out requirements (e.g. age) and restrictions in a terms and conditions document, especially as the promotions will often be offered to consumers (filing the terms and conditions with a notary public is not required by law).
There is no formal requirement to involve an external jury, judge or panel to select the winners, but doing so may decrease the risk of disputes afterwards.
