    The bit saying

    "Must be a travel agent, tour operator or journalist."

    came up on the pop up if you clicked the prize details button on the competition page

    http://www.visitdallasfortworth.co.uk/prize.html

    Having said that this has now been removed so I assume they have edited it to match the T&C.
    Please note all references to "The Newt" are to my newt not to any other newt.


    ps Yes I know the newt is my imaginary pet newt so is in fact a made up newt and the other newt or newts might be real newts but I don't care!!!!
