    Does the kit have to be bought from HLJ?

    • Pretty sure it does. Here : “Prize winners may be asked to prove the entry was originally purchased from “

    • The kit does not have to be bought from HLJ in order to enter. However if you win you will not be able to accept prizes unless the kit was purchased from HLJ. You would have only won the title.

    • Thanks for clarifying.

    • “Only kits that are/were available for purchase through are eligible for this competition.”

      Doesn’t sound like you MUST buy it from HLJ just that it has to be a kit that can be bought from HLJ.

      • Got confirmation from Syd. The kit has to be bought from hlj to be eligible.

        • From syd’s own post/comment on the 2017 comp

          “The rules have been clarified to state clearly that the kit can be purchased from somewhere other than however you will need a customer account at in order to submit your final order and claim any prizes.”

          and the FAQ in the rules

          “Q. Can I enter with a kit that I didn’t purchase from HLJ?

          A. You can use a kit that was not purchased through, however, you will need a customer account in order to submit your final entry and receive any prizes should you win.

          Just don’t know why you may be asked to provide proof of purchase if as under rules as written the kit does not have to have been purchased from HLJ to eligible to enter on claim prizes should you place as long as you have a customer account.
