a form to be filled out once a week on the internet
Explanation:
Many people fill out a form on the internet once each weak and e-mail it in. And then a winner or a certain limited number of winners are chosen, probably randomly, and given the chance to buy a ticket.

This is one approach when there is more demand than supply - more wishing to see the concert than available tickets.
