18 Winners will be decided based on whether they have answered the relevant daily question correctly, and whether they were the first person to text in that correct answer.
19 Winners will be notified immediately via telephone in accordance with the process set out in clauses 20 and 21 and confirmed in writing within two (2) business days. Each Winner’s name will be announced via the Promoter’s website at the end of the competition (www.itvsn.com.au
20 Once the winning Entrant has been identified, the Promoter will then call the Entrant live during the relevant ‘Good Morning TVSN’ broadcast on their registered phone number. If an Entrant registers both a mobile number and a landline number in their entry, the Promoter will call the Entrant’s mobile number.
21 Entrants must satisfy the “Valid Winner Requirements” in this clause to qualify for a prize. To be a Valid Winner, each Winner determined in accordance with clauses 18 and 20 who receives a call during the Draw Period:

b. upon answering the call, state “Love TVSN” (or any alternative phrase as deemed suitable by the Promoter in its sole discretion); and
c. answer the phone live when called. No recording devices including, but not limited to answering machines, will be accepted as a substitute.
22 If a representative of the Entrant answers the Entrant’s phone and fulfils the Valid Winner Requirements in clause 21, that representative will be taken to be the Winner of the relevant Draw Period. This determination will be subject to the agreement of the Entrant as deemed suitable by the Promoter in its discretion. If the Entrant does not agree to their representative winning the prize on the Entrant’s behalf, that prize will be forfeited in whole and no substitute or compensation will be offered to the Entrant or their representative.
23 The Promoter will have the final decision in determining whether or not an Entrant has satisfied the Valid Winner Requirements in clause 21. This will be determined by the Executive Producer of TVSN or their nominated representative on the day. No correspondence will be entered into regarding the Promoter’s decision. It is the Entrant’s responsibility to answer the call per clause 21.
24 If the Entrant does not satisfy the Valid Winner Requirements that Entrant will not be a Valid Winner and the Winner will forfeit the available prize for that Draw Period. An Entrant who forfeits a prize under this clause will not be offered any substitute or compensation.
25 If the first Entrant called for a Draw Period does not satisfy the Valid Winner Requirements, then the Promoter may in its discretion call additional reserve entries pursuant to clause 16.
26 In the event that a broadcast of “Good Morning TVSN” is changed, delayed or cancelled resulting in a draw not being made, then that draw will be made during the next available Draw Period. The Promoter will determine the next available period in its discretion.
27 The Promoter and its employees reserve the right to terminate an Entrant’s call if, in their sole discretion, they determine an Entrant to be impolite, abusive or offensive in any way. The Promoter also reserves the right to prohibit that Entrant from future entry to the competition during the Promotional Period and/or deem any of the Entrants other entries invalid.
28 Once an Entrant has been determined to be a Valid Winner pursuant to clause 23, a TVSN representative will confirm the Valid Winner’s registered state of residence. The Prize will then correlate to the Valid Winner’s state of residence.
29 If the prizes in the Valid Winner’s state of residence have been exhausted then the Promoter will offer the Valid Winner a voucher at an equivalent value of the prize the Valid Winner would have won.
