  1. NO PURCHASE IS NECESSARY to enter the contest or win a prize. The Competition starts at 18.00 AEST on 14 July, 2015 and closes at 24.00 AEST on Thursday, 23 July, 2015 (the "Competition Period").  The promoter is Backyard Chicken Coops Pty Ltd, PO Box 2775 NEW FARM QLD 4005.  The contest is offered electronically via the Internet.  Any entry received after the expiry of the Competition Period will be deemed invalid.  No responsibility is accepted for late, lost, delayed or misdirected entries.
  2. To enter the Competition, you must:  Post a photograph of a “Chelfieâ€_x009d_ (Selfie-style portrait which includes a chicken), to Backyard Chicken Coops’ Facebook page within the competition period.  The entry must include a photo fitting the entry details. This will be automatically accompanied by Facebook contact information.  Eligible entries must contain the following information – the names of those in the Chelfie – person and chicken (if applicable) and breed of chicken.  If the requested information is not provided, the entrant will not be eligible to participate in the promotion or to claim a prize and their entry may be discarded.
  3. This is a game of skill and chance plays no part in determining the winners. Each entry will be individually judged based on the artistic and creative content of the photograph.  The entrant whose photo is assessed by Backyard Chicken Coops’ panel of judges to be the most expressive, most original and most creative in each breed category will win.  The first prize winner will be selected by Backyard Chicken Coops’ panel of judges from the twelve (12) individual winners of the “Best in Breedâ€_x009d_ categories.   Feedback from Backyard Chicken Coops facebook followers on the “Chelfieâ€_x009d_ category winners will be garnered, but will play no role in determining the First Prize Winner.
  4. The names of the twelve (12) “Best in Breedâ€_x009d_ winners will be announced and posted on Backyard Chicken Coops Facebook page on Monday 27 July, 2015.  The name of the First Prize winner of the Chelfie promotion will be announced at 18.00 AEST, Thursday 30 July, 2015.  The selected entrants will receive a Facebook message, within twenty four (24) hours of the selection date.  Each of the selected entrants will be given instructions for contacting Backyard Chicken Coop to confirm eligibility and be declared a winner. They must reply to the direct message or email within 48 hours or they will be disqualified. Selected entrants will be required to confirm eligibility before being declared a winner. At that time, winners will be instructed how to claim the prize.  If a selected entrant cannot be contacted within twenty four (24) hours of the selection date or fails to respond to the email notification of eligibility within two (2) days of the date the notification is sent or cannot confirm eligibility, that entrant will be disqualified. If a selected entrant is disqualified, one (1) alternate entry from the same pool of entries will be chosen by Backyard Chicken Coops’ panel of judges and the process repeated until all prizes are awarded. If any correspondence or any prize is returned as undeliverable, the corresponding prize will be forfeited and may be awarded to an alternate winner. In the event there is a dispute of the entrant's identity, the prize will be awarded to the established email account associated with the entry. All decisions of the contest judges are final.

There is one (1) First prize to be won – “Chicken-Lover goodie packâ€_x009d_, a hamper selected by Backyard Chicken Coops and valued at over $200.   The prize will be sent at Backyard Chicken Coops’ expense, to any address in Australia.  There are twelve (12) sub-category prizes to be won of a 140-litre hemp bedding pack.  Each prize is valued at $99.  Freight will be covered by Backyard Chicken Coops to any address in Australia.  Please allow 28 days from the date of notification for the delivery of the prizes.
