Wētā Workshop Unleashed - Contest Rules

These are the rules for participation in the ‘Wētā Workshop Unleashed’s Photo Competition’ contest (referred to below as the “Contest”). These Rules make a contract between you (the person signing up for the Contest), and us (Wētā Workshop Limited, incorporated in New Zealand, the promoter of the Contest).

When you sign up for the Contest, you must use your real name. You promise us that all information you provide when you sign up is complete and accurate.

If you are under 15 your parent or legal guardian must provide their consent and must agree to these Rules and ensure you follow them. Otherwise, we may disqualify you from the Contest and/or collect any prizes.


The prizes are as follows:

  •  A prize will be picked at random each month up to the value of $200. This can range from free tickets to Wētā Workshop tours and experiences in New Zealand to gifts from the Wētā Cave.

How to enter

To enter guests will be invited to upload their pictures from Unleashed to social media and tag the Wētā Workshop Unleashed social media pages and hashtag #MovieMakingUnleashed. The competition will be running on TikTok and Instagram ongoing from December 2022 until Wētā Workshop, the promoter, chooses to stop the promotion.


To be eligible, you must meet all of the following criteria:

  • Have bought a ticket and embarked on a Wētā Workshop Unleashed experience during the dates of the Contest.
    Employees and contractors of Wētā Workshop and their immediate families are not eligible to enter.

Prize draw

The prize winners will be randomly drawn at the end of each month.

We will use reasonable efforts to contact the winners by private message on the social media channel they used to enter during the first week of every month. If by the end of the first week of each month, the winner has not claimed their prize, the prize will be forfeited and we may conduct a re-draw to award the prize to another eligible entrant.

Winner notification: The winner will be contacted by private message on the social media platform they used to enter the competition. If the winner is not contactable for 48 hours after being notified of winning, then Wētā Workshop can allocate the prize to another participant at its sole discretion.

No correspondence: Wētā Workshop’s decision regarding the Winner is final and no correspondence will be entered.

Prize rules

The prizes are non-transferable, non-refundable, non-exchangeable and cannot be redeemed for cash. We may substitute any of the prizes for alternative items of greater or equal value.

If the winner is under 15 years old, a parent or guardian must accompany him/her when accepting and/or using the prize.

Except as specified in these Rules, each winner is responsible for all costs that he or she might need to incur to accept or use any prize, or as a result of accepting or using any prize (including, for example, taxes, insurance, travel, accommodation, and/or other incidental expenses).

We will not be required to replace or repair a prize that is lost, stolen or damaged in transit after it has been dispatched to the delivery address provided by the winner.
