Terms and Conditions

The judges’ selection is final and binding.

The British Council will not cover delivery cost or transport incurred while claiming prize. 

Prizes are personal to the winners and cannot be transferred to any third party.  Prizes cannot be exchanged for money or any other goods or services.

The British Council accepts no responsibility for failure to notify winning participants or failure to claim prizes where such failure results from the provision of inaccurate contact details by the participants or from the acts or omissions of any third party (including, without limitation, any internet provider) and shall have no liability if it is prevented from or delayed in delivering any aspect of the Competition or the prizes by acts, events, omissions or accidents beyond its reasonable control.

The British Council does not offer any insurance in connection with the prize.  Each prize winner may arrange their own insurance in respect of the prize, if applicable.

Personal data

  • The British Council will collect and store the names, photos and email addresses of all participants and the additional contact details of anticipated winners.  The British Council will use this personal data for the following purposes:
  • managing the relationship between the participants and the British Council;
  • communicating with participants to answer their queries about the Competition;
  • communicating with winners and arranging presentation of their prizes;
  • and
  • marketing and publicity of the 2015 Season.

Where a participant has consented to the British Council doing so, the British Council may contact the participant using the personal data collected to provide information about the goods, services, courses or promotions that the British Council offers.

By participating in the Competition, participants consent to their personal data being processed by the British Council in accordance with, and for the purposes set out above.

Participants can exercise their rights to access their personal data held by the British Council and withdraw their consent to the processing of their personal data by sending an email, accompanied by a scanned photocopy of their valid passport, to the Nigerian Arts team.

Publicity and rights

The British Council intends to publish the names and photographs of the winners on the British Council’s websites, Facebook pages, Twitter pages, press releases and in other promotional and marketing material.  In addition, the British Council may write and publish articles about the winners’ enjoyment of their prize.  By entering the Competition, each participant agrees to the use of their name and image and agrees to co-operate with any such publicity or marketing if they win a prize.

By entering the Competition each participant grants the British Council, free of charge, permission to use their suggested name in any way it wants (including, without limitation, modifying and adapting it for operational and editorial reasons) in any media worldwide.  Each participant confirms that the entry material is their original creation, is not defamatory and does not infringe any English laws, that they have the right to give the British Council permission to use it for the purposes specified above, and that all necessary consents for the submission of the entry material have been obtained.

All rights in the British Council’s name and logo, websites, Facebook pages, Twitter pages, press releases and other promotional and marketing material and all course and examination content and materials (together the “Council’s Materials”) shall vest in and remain with the British Council (or its licensors).  By participating in the Competition, participants agree that they will not use, broadcast, publish, export, exploit, reproduce nor copy part or all of the Council’s Materials.

This competition is open to everyone with access to the internet—except British Council Staff and their family—with the understanding that they will be liable to the cost incurred for the purpose of claiming their prize, either via post or otherwise and that we will not be liable for any damage that result from postage or handling afterwards.
