Egg Hunt Competition Terms
1. The Prize Draw
Action for Children are running a prize draw to win a year’s supply of Lindt chocolate.
Entrants to the competition must be 16 years or over on 12th February 2013 and texts must be sent from a UK mobile number. Entry is prohibited to those who at any time between the Start Date and the date on which the winner is selected (inclusive) are employees of Action for Children, any of their wholly owned subsidiaries or any marketing services agency or other company involved directly with the administration of this competition, or any member of their households.
Only one entry per day per person is allowed. Entrants under 16 must have the bill-payer’s permission to enter.
3. To enter
To enter the draw, find the Humpty Dumpty egg and text the keyword on the egg’s plinth to the number given on the plinth.
The text is charged at the entrant’s normal network rate. No purchase is necessary for entry into the competition.
By entering the competition, you are likely to be contacted by Action for Children (or agencies working for Action for Children). Entrants can opt out of this call by texting OUT to 70060.
4. Selection of winners
There will be one winner every day (other than the dates listed in paragraph 5 below) between 00.01am on 12 February 2013 (the Start Date) and 6pm on 7 April 2013 (the Closing Date). The daily winner will be randomly selected after 6pm each evening of the competition from all entries received since 6pm the previous day (other than as set out in paragraph 5 below).
Entries received after the Closing Date will not be accepted.
Winners will be contacted by phone. If a winner cannot be contacted within 21 days of the draw, the Promoter reserves the right at its absolute discretion to withdraw prize entitlement and award the prize to a substitute winner drawn at the same time as the original. The Promoter’s decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into.
5. Egg transport days
The Big Egg Hunt will be moving around the country between February and April. On the following days, the Humpty Dumpty egg will be moving from one venue to another and so no draw will be made. Instead, entries received during the eligibility period for that day will be entered into the following day’s draw.
Monday 18th February
Tuesday 26th February
Wednesday 6th March
Thursday 14th March
Thursday 21st March
6. The prize
Each winner will receive a prize consisting of a “year’s worth of chocolate” comprising of 4x seasonal deliveries of 3kg of Lindt chocolate. The deliveries will be made at the end of April 2013, end of July 2013, end of October 2013 and then January 2014.
The “year’s worth of chocolate” amount of 12kg is based on Lindt’s experience of the average consumption per household per year. Lindt and Action for Children are chocolate fans but always make sure they eat it in moderation and as part of a healthy and balanced diet, and would encourage you to do the same.
The prize is non-transferable and there is no cash equivalent for the prize. At the Promoter’s discretion another prize of equivalent or greater value may be substituted if in all reasonable circumstances the Promoter is unable to offer the intended prize.
7. Promoter discretion
The Promoter retains sole discretion to withhold prizes without liability if in the Promoter’s view a winner is ineligible, the entry is invalid or the winner does not meet the necessary requirements as set out in these terms and conditions. The Promoter reserves the right to withdraw or amend the Promotion in the event of unforeseen circumstances or circumstances outside of the Promoter’s control.
8. Winner publicity
Entrants accept that, if they win, the Promoter will contact them requesting the right, without additional payment or permission, to use the winner’s name, age, town of residence and likeness for the purposes of announcing the winner of this competition and for related promotional purposes.
9. Winning entry details
The name and county of each daily winner will be sent to anyone who writes within 3 months after the closing date, enclosing a stamped addressed envelope, to the address in Rule 10 below, requesting details of the winning entries.
10. Data privacy

3. Description of the competitions
Five different competitions will take place on the “Big Egg Hunt UK” Facebook Page, through this app, between Wednesday 12th February and Monday 1 April. Each competition will run for a maximum period of six days. The exact days of the competitions may vary from week to week, depending on the dates and duration of The Lindt Big Egg Hunt installation in each city. Specific dates will be revealed on the “Big Egg Hunt UK” Facebook Page and www.thebigegghunt.co.uk/ in the course of action.
The “Big Egg Hunt UK”’s Facebook fans will be asked to guess where our mascot character, Eggbert, is hiding and text and image clues will appear on the “Big Egg Hunt UK” Facebook Page about the location, throughout the week. Eggbert may or may not be hiding physically in the selected location, depending on the week.
“Big Egg Hunt UK” reserves the right to remove Facebook posts, comments or images that reveal the location of Eggbert during the competition. Users are kindly asked to enter the competition via the Eggscape competitions app and not elsewhere on Facebook.
4. How to enter
In order to enter, each participant will have to fill in a registration form with their data (name, email address and telephone number) and type in the name of the location where they think Eggbert is hiding. Users are asked to insert the name of a famous location, which can be an iconic monument or building, a square, a commercial place such as a market or a shop. Addresses will be invalid without the name of the locations. Typos will be considered valid.
Facebook users can enter the competition multiple times, but only the latest entry will be counted. Multiple entries WILL NOT increase your chances to win, as your names will be counted only once. We strongly advise users to enter the competition no more than once per day.
5. Winner selection and verification
A winner for each of the 5 weekly competitions will be drawn at random each week from all correct entries, the day after the end of the competition. The date on which each competition ends will be revealed in advance on the “Big Egg Hunt UK” Facebook Page.
The winner will be notified by email or telephone within 7 days of the relevant draw. If a winner cannot be contacted within 21 days, the Promoter reserves the right at its absolute discretion to withdraw the prize entitlement and award the prize to a substitute winner drawn at the same time as the original.
The Promoter’s decision is final. No correspondence will be entered into. Details of the winners’ names and counties will be available from the Promoter on written request by email to firstname.lastname@example.org within 3 months of the relevant closing date.
6. The prizes
The winner of each competition will win a 1 kg chocolate bunny, provided by Lindt UK. The prize will be delivered within the UK at no charge after the 30th of April.
At the Promoter’s discretion another prize of equivalent or greater value may be substituted if in all reasonable circumstances the Promoter is unable to offer the intended prize(s).
