If you are entering BBC Radio Suffolk's Pop Tarts competition, please read the below.

The competition is not currently running.

Terms and Conditions

1 Entry is open to all UK residents (including Channel Islands and the Isle of Man) aged 18 or over, except BBC employees or those of its affiliates and their close relatives or any person connected to the competition. Proof of age, identity and eligibility may be requested.

Listeners who have been put on air cannot re-enter the competition for three weeks (i.e. listeners will only be put on air once during a four-week period).

2 The competition will run during the Friday Mid-Morning Show (10:00 until 14:00) on BBC Radio Suffolk from 7 May 2021, subject to editorial changes to the show and/or the schedule.

3 During the show, listeners will be invited to register for the competition, following the instructions given out on-air, by calling the number: 0800 141 2121. Calls are free from landlines and mobiles.

No other method of entry will be accepted.

4 Registration is only open during the times announced on-air. Entries received outside these times will not be registered but may still be charged. The opening and closing times may change so please listen to announcements during the show.

5 After the registration period closes, four entrants will be randomly selected, to play in two head-to-head on-air quizzes. During each quiz, six questions will be asked, three to each entrant, alternating between the two entrants. The entrants will score one point for a correct answer. The winner from each quiz will go through to the on-air final. In the event of a draw, the entrant to go through will be decided by a sudden-death play-off.

6 The two listeners through to the final will play head-to-head on air as before, this time each being asked five questions. The same scoring will be used, the winner being the finalist with the highest score. In the event of a draw the winner will be decided by a sudden-death play-off.

7 If, after reasonable attempts have been made, a registered listener cannot be contacted, or refuses to go on air, the opportunity to go on air and play will be given to the next randomly selected registered listener.

8 The BBC's decision as to the winner is final. No correspondence relating to the competition will be entered into.

9 The prize will be as advertised during the show and will usually consist of a BBC Radio Suffolk pen.

10 There is no cash alternative and the prize cannot be sold or transferred in any circumstances.

11 Entrants must agree to take part in any post-competition publicity if required.

12 The BBC reserves the right to: (i) vary these competition terms and conditions including, but not limited to, the opening and closing times; (ii) disqualify any entrant who breaches the rules, appears to be receiving help in answering or cheating in any other way whilst on air (in the BBC's sole discretion) or has acted fraudulently in any way; (iii) disqualify any entrant who exhibits any inappropriate language or behaviour and; (iv) cancel the competition, at any stage, if in its opinion it is deemed necessary or if circumstances arise outside its control.

13 The BBC, its sub-contractors, subsidiaries and/or agencies cannot accept any responsibility whatsoever for any technical failure or malfunction or any other problem which may result in any entry not being properly registered.

14 This competition accords with the BBC's Code of Conduct for Competitions and Voting, details of which can be found at BBC Competitions Policy.
