Selection of winners
Are there any requirements for the selection of winners and award of prizes?
Under the Letters, a prize promotion is only permitted to be run via the following methods:
- By sending a voucher, card or part of a product (ie the bottle caps of bottles of water) to be drawn at the date, time and place specified under the License.
- By opening a 'signboard.' These are arranged on TV shows, where a contestant chooses a 'signboard' representing the advertising sponsor of the TV show in order to hopefully win a prize.
- By sending a text message via SMS or telephone system. The telephone numbers of the senders will be printed out to be drawn at the date, time and place specified under the License.
Under methods 1 and 2, the arranger must be the manufacturer or the exclusive distributor of the related products in Thailand (except shopping malls, department stores, banks or other corporate entities providing services). This is not a requirement if the prize promotion is conducted via method 3.
Details regarding the selection of winners (ie by lucky drawing) and award/prizes must be specified in the application and must be approved before the License is granted to the applicant/arranger.
