  • IFRC Solferino Academy will purchase the prize and ship it to the winners. Winners will be responsible for accepting the delivery in their locale.  

6. Winner Selection

  • Initially, ten (10) potential winners will be selected through a random drawing from all eligible participants to ensure fairness and impartiality.

  • The selection process will adhere to the game’s rules and the outlined criteria for eligibility.
  • The selected winners will be notified using the contact details provided on the game platform. It is crucial for participants to provide accurate and current contact information.

Failure to respond promptly may result in prize forfeiture, and an alternate winner may be chosen from the remaining eligible candidates. Winners will be contacted and must provide a valid shipping address and contact phone number to receive the prize. 
  • The organisers’ decision regarding the selection of winners is final. No inquiries or appeals regarding the decision-making process will be entertained.
  • In the event of discrepancies or disputes during the selection process, the organisers reserve the right to rectify the situation, which may include disqualification of participants or adjustment of winner selection, to uphold fairness and adherence to these Terms and Conditions.
