As you know I prefer to run competitions that all readers of the site can enter.
Occasionally in the past it has been necessary to restrict competitions to certain areas for legal reasons, for example, when the prizes are DVDs which are only published in certain regions.
Generally competition prize suppliers are happy to meet the cost of posting prizes. However the cost of sending prizes outside the UK is increasingly becoming a concern for some of them.
With this in mind, I wanted to ask readers’ opinions on how to address this. For example:
* Would you be happy to see fewer prizes on offer if it meant everyone had a chance to win them?
* Would you mind if more competitions on the site were region-restricted, e.g. to just the UK/RoI, or just to Europe?
