The Competition


UK Crown Estate; What's Great about Britain?

Ends 31 December 2008

The Rules of this Contest

Before quoting the competition rules it may be of interest to explain what the United Kingdom Crown Estate is. Here is an extract from the Crown Estate website which explain their role within the United Kingdom.

"The Crown Estate may be traced back to the reign of King Edward the Confessor and, until the accession of King George III, the Sovereign received its rents, profits and expenses. However since 1760, the annual surplus, after deducting management costs, has been surrendered by the Sovereign to Parliament to help meet the costs of civil government. In return, the Sovereign receives the civil list and the Government meets other official expenditure incurred in support of the Sovereign."

Listed below are extracts from the rules of this competition. These extracts detail the rights being claimed from entrants.
