  • An opportunity to see your Selfie Entry appear on TV during an advertising break in the programme “Forged In Fire”
  • A History Channel goodie bag.


Each week a panel of judges who work for the History™ Channel will review the Selfie Entries and select 2 (two) that will be eligible to win a Weekly Prize (“Weekly Winners”).  The judges will assess the Selfie Entries and select Weekly Winners which clearly illustrate the concept of the Competition, that is people enjoying a Big Knight In in front of the programme “Forged In Fire” and the quality of the actual photograph to ensure that it can be broadcast.

All Weekly Winners will then be entered into a prize draw to win the Main Prize, the flatscreen TV. This winner will be selected at random.

If you are selected as a Winner but after entering the Give Away subsequently delete your email account/ twitter account, we will not be able to contact you to award you the Prize and another winner may be selected.    

Each Weekly Winner will have 5 days from the time of the winner notification email to claim the Prize. To do this they must contact us and provide their address.

If a Weekly Winner does not respond and provide proof of their eligibility within 5 days they forfeit the Prize and an alternative winner may be selected (“Alternative Winners”). 

Alternative Winners may have a shorter time period to respond with their proof of eligibility and this will be stated in our request for proof of eligibility email. 

Eligibility to win the Prize is subject to you and your Entry’s compliance with these Terms & Conditions.
