Rules and Regulations

Every Monday, the previous week’s top-voted dog will be featured as Dog of the Week on the homepage. Each Dog of the Week photograph will also have a chance to appear in Modern Dog magazine, as judged by Modern Dog. Once selected as a Dog of the Week winner, voting for that photo entry will be closed and the winning photograph will be moved to the Modern Dog photo contest winner’s page.

You may enter the contest as many times as you like and are encouraged to promote voting for your dog through various streams, including email, blogging, social networking sites, etc. You can vote for each dog once every 12 hours, unless you are logged in as a Modern Dog user, in which case you can only vote for each dog once, ever. We encourage showing your support of your favourite dogs by voting regularly, so simply don’t log in as a user if you’d like to vote more than once. Votes made from computers on a shared Internet connection are counted as a single vote within each 12 hour period (i.e one vote per office per 12 hours, all subsequent votes will not be counted). To be considered a legitimate vote, a voter must visit the photo contest page of the entered dog on and click on the vote button. Therefore votes exceeding pageviews will not be considered legitimate votes. All photos entered in the photo contest regardless of number of votes have a chance to appear in Modern Dog magazine. Photo selection for inclusion in the magazine is solely at the discretion of Modern Dog. Modern Dog reserves the right to verify, in its sole judgment, winner eligibility. Modern Dog reserves the right to change these contest rules at any time. Inappropriate photos and comments will be deleted. Good luck!
