The prize is not transferable or redeemable for cash. No replacement will be offered in the event that the prize cannot be claimed on the stipulated dates. Artists will be responsible for transport to and from the venue. Judges’ decisions are final and no correspondence will be entered into. As a winner, you will be representing triple j at this event. As such you are obligated to behave responsibly and professionally and comply with the rules and requests that triple j and the event organisers ask of you. This includes turning up on time, sticking to your designated area and not helping yourself to other artists' riders. Failure to do so (and trust us, we'll hear about it) will result in triple j withdrawing our support of your band.
