******1st PRIZE TERMS AND CONDITIONS******
"Air Thaddeus is pleased to offer the winner a photographic helicopter flight above Sydney. We'll zoom over the harbour bridge, past the beaches and dodge 747s as they lumber into Sydney Airport. The flight is ex-Bankstown and only available to those who weigh not more than Leek. If you are too heavy or live interstate, you may nominate an different person to take the flight. Scheduling will depend on mutual availability and weather. Air Thaddeus reserves the right to get the shits if you cancel at the last minute or act as if this is some kind of commercial transaction, which it isn't. Air Thaddeus assumes no responsibility for death, disability, air-sickness, deep vein thrombosis, hiccups, flatulence or other misadventure suffered in the course of receiving the prize. Air Thaddeus recommends using something like an 18-70mm lens, circular polariser and wearing dark, non-patterned clothing when photographing from the helicopter."
