3. HOW TO ENTER
- NO PURCHASE NECESSARY
- On-air: Every weekday during the Contest Period.
- Qualifying: Listeners may enter the contest by being the correct caller to 709-576-6936 when instructed at (approximately) 8:10am, and 4:10pm, Monday through Friday. There shall be no entries on Saturday or Sunday. Only entries by telephone at the prescribed times will be accepted. No entries via mail, social media, or any other method will be accepted.
- Entries are subject to verification and will be declared invalid if they are reproduced, falsified, altered or tampered with in any way.
- Winners: During the prescribed times, the correct caller will listen to a clip of a song played on OZFM. This clip will be exactly one second in length. The caller will be asked to provide the Artist and Title of the song played. Callers who provide the correct answer will win the prize money as detailed below.
4. WINNER SELECTION
The number of winners will depend on the number of correct answers during the Contest Period.
$200 (two hundred) Canadian Dollars is allocated to each contest play. Should the contest entrant provide an incorrect answer, the prize money will be added to the next play, continuously until a correct answer is provided. The next contest entrant to provide a correct answer wins the accumulated prize money. The total pot of money to be won throughout the entire contest is $10,000 (ten thousand) Canadian Dollars.
6. CLAIMING THE PRIZE
OZFM will contact the successful entrant by telephone and ask them to answer a 4 part mathematical skill testing question. If successfully answered within 5 minutes, they will be requested to appear in person at OZFM with proof of their identity and their age. They must provide two pieces of identification which must include their full name, and complete address, (eg: a valid passport and driver’s license would be acceptable). If the caller can provide this information, all the conditions are considered as met and that person will win the prize. If they cannot meet these conditions, they forfeit the prize and OZFM will draw an alternate winner.
7. PRIZE TO BE ACCEPTED AS AWARDED
The Prize must be accepted as awarded. No portion of the Prize is transferable. Should any Prize winner be unable to claim the Prize awarded, his or her entry will be forfeited and another
eligible Contest entrant will be selected.
8. ODDS OF WINNING
Odds of winning depend on the musical knowledge of the entrant, and also depend on the number of people trying to call at the prescribed time.
Subject to applicable law, OZFM reserves the right to cancel, suspend, terminate and/or modify the Contest Rules or administration of the Contest, in whole or in part, without prior notice with no obligation or liability, including, if for any reason, the Contest is not capable of running as planned, whether due to technical failure, tampering, fraud, corruption or other causes beyond the control of OZFM.
