Is anyone else having difficulty completing the entry process for this competition? I keep getting the "Error-try again" message and am currently unable to progress further than the page asking if I use social media.  Confused

I have sent a message to Ponant tonight outlining the problem. The competition is supposed to end today (Thursday 15th February), so I'm not sure if the problem will be corrected in time.  I'll keep you posted if I hear back from them.
