Think about it - if was open to the rest of the world prizes could be difficult to send out. Also thought the website was "Australian Business Traveler"
Ohhh Anthony ......are you that shallow, please keep on topic. NZ as far as last looked was not "rest of world", are we not neighbours. In fact i guess give the economic solidarity "currently" of NZ perhaps a re title of this fine site could be considered
Rich5011: Anthony's comment was very much on topic, as we "encourage Australian Business Traveller readers to have their say" and "do not censor comments based solely on a point of view" (even though that view may disagree with another that has been posted), as per our comment policy.
Re: The survey, you're still more than welcome to share your views by completing it and we'd of course hope our NZ readers don't feel excluded.
As the main prize is a round-trip ticket from Australia, it makes sense to open this to residents of Australia.
As to the other prizes, some countries restrict or ban the importation of leather items by mail, others assess duty/tax charges on items mailed above a certain value and others have restrictions which apply to items sent with batteries inside, which affect all other prizes.
There are also the local laws concerning prizes and competitions of each overseas state and country to abide by, and obtaining international legal advice to ensure we comply not only within Australia but also abroad is a costly exercise.
So while we greatly value the input of our New Zealand readers (and again encourage you to complete the survey so we can write more articles of interest to you), we unfortunately have to restrict this competition to be within Australia only, and hope you can understand why. :)

thanks for the comment , bit surprised but then that's ok , I am aware of many competitions run trans Tasman by companies very much larger and under cer I figure it's not so expensive in fact probably less expensive than your state legislation covering "lotteries and so. " so the argument doesn't really seem obvious but I of course bow to wider knowledge and apologise if I felt Anthony's comment was off topic as I notice lots of " editorial" removals on subjects I think are on topic but editorial licence is always the power
I shall continue to follow your great site and thanks for the interaction.

For our Kiwi readers: tell you what, we'll try to see if we can extend the scope of a future contest to New Zealand, and maybe even do an NZ-only contest one day if it stacks up...
