    7. Entry forms will be judged by the Promoter and the best entries (in the judge’s sole discretion) will be shortlisted for a regional judging day to be held at 11 Screwfix stores nationwide (including Northern Ireland). The 11 finalists will be selected from these judging days; notified by telephone and will need to be available to attend a final judging day, which will be used for the Promoter to select a winner. This will be in November 2015.

    8. The prize will be awarded to the finalist that the judges consider to be most worthy of the title “Britain’s Top Tradesperson” based on all of the information in their entry, their interview at the judging day, and any other relevant information (such as a criminal record) that may become known to Screwfix prior to the decision being made.

    9. The winner will be notified by telephone by 27th November 2015 and must arrange to provide the specification for their vehicle (up to a total price On the Road of £30,000 including VAT) by 31st December 2015. If the winner wants to spec the vehicle to a specification over £30,000 OTR (including VAT) then the winner must pay the extra amount.

    10. The final specification shall be subject to the Promoter’s and Toyota’s final approval. The vehicle will then take between 12 to 24 weeks to be built and delivered (depending upon the specification). Collection of the vehicle will be made via the winner’s local participating Toyota Business Centre dealership. Exact delivery date and details will be confirmed with the winner. The winner must arrange their own motor insurance prior to taking delivery of the prize.

    11. The decision of the judges will be final and unchallengeable and, in their absolute discretion, they may declare void any entry or the competition itself, should they consider that there are no entries reaching a required standard, whereupon they can award prizes or not, as they think fit. The judges may also decide, in their absolute discretion, to change the rules of the competition while it is running if it appears to them that it would be equitable or desirable to do so.
