Publishing Winners - Requirements

Did you know that the winners of prizes may need to be published for everyone to see? Each state has different requirements (e.g. SA if prize is higher than $250, NSW if more than $500, VIC if more than $1000, but ACT regardless of value). Most promoters choose to publish the winners on a website.

Blanket Permits

If you need to run a promotion multiple times throughout the year, then it may be possible to obtain "blanket permits" for NSW and ACT. These allow the promoter to run competitions that are similar in nature for a period of 12 months with only a single permit. Please contact us if you would like more information about this and how we can help.

NSW government review - trade promotion permit threshold

Great news: from Jan 2018, NSW intends to raise the threshold required for trade promotion permits from $0 to $10,000. You will still need to comply with the legislation and be mindful when dealing with stuff like liquor, minors, travel, etc.

According to Liquor and Gaming NSW:
"Liquor and Gaming NSW is now in the process of finalising the model to regulate community gaming and trade promotions. Once finalised, the intention is for the changes to become operational in January 2018, following the passage of legislation."

Did you know that you generally need abridged T&Cs?

These are short form terms and conditions that you place on ads that promote your competition. You would have seen them on the bottom of a print ad or a TVC. There are specific requirements about what needs to be included, including the prize pool, where the draw will occur, the permit number(s) and a reference to where the full T&Cs can be found. TPAL® can help.

Amending Terms and Conditions for a Promotion

Did you know that if you change the T&Cs of your competition, you will need to apply for approval? Even if the change is small. Each permit state will assess the application separately and will not approve the change if they think that existing entrants may be disadvantaged by the update. Contact us to discuss further.

Gift with Purchase Promotions

A "Gift with Purchase" (GWP) promotion is a where the consumer gets a free product/service if they purchase a participating product. NSW and SA (if prize pool exceeds $5,000) both require a permit if there is a limit to the GWP. For example, the offer is limited to the first 1,000 customers or up to $50,000. In other words, “whilst stocks last”. ACT does not require a permit because they view this as a game of skill.
