Modern Dog Star Dog Photo Contest Rules and Regulations

Contest closes Wednesday, December 18, 2019 at 12 pm PST. Must be a Canadian or US resident (excluding Puerto Rico) over the age of majority in their province, territory or state of residence to enter. Odds of winning depend upon the number of eligible entries received. Mathematical skill testing question to be correctly answered to win. No purchase necessary. The entered photo must, obviously, be of a dog. There is one Grand Prize available to be won, which consists of your dog appearing in a photo spread of an upcoming issue of moderndog magazine, which has an intrinsic value to the winner, plus a photo shoot, at a date and time to be arranged, but taking place approximately within one week of the contest close. The photo shoot will be set up as close as possible to where the winner resides; any travel costs associated with getting to the photo shoot are the responsibility of the winner. The winner’s failure/inability to make his/her dog available for the photo shoot within the specified time period constitutes refusal of the Grand Prize, in which case an alternate dog will be chosen to appear in the magazine at moderndog’s discretion. ©2019 Modern Dog Inc.

Rules and Regulations
The dog receiving the most votes in moderndog’s Star Dog competition will appear in a photo spread in an upcoming issue of moderndog magazine and will take part in a photo shoot orchestrated by moderndog. Photos resulting from this shoot (or a subsequent photo shoot if retakes are deemed necessary by moderndog) will be selected at moderndog’s sole discretion to appear in moderndog magazine and on All photos will be chosen solely at moderndog’s discretion. Please note that we will endeavour to have the photo shoot take place as close as possible to the winner’s location, but some travel on the part of the winner may be necessary, and will be undertaken at the winner’s expense. The contest closes at 12 pm PST, Wednesday, Decemeber 18, 2019. The winner must be available to take part in a photo shoot within approximately one week of this date. You may enter as many photos as you like (the entered photo must, obviously, be of a dog) and are encouraged to promote voting for your dog through various streams, including word of mouth, email, blogging, and social networking (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+ etc.) You can vote for each dog once every 12 hours. Show your support of your favourite dogs by sharing their photo entries through social media. Votes made from computers on a shared Internet connection are counted as a single vote (i.e one vote per office/home per 12 hours). 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 page views will not be considered legitimate votes. Falsified votes or votes suspected of being falsified will be adjusted accordingly or the entry will be disqualified and removed from the contest altogether at moderndog’s sole discretion. All photos entered in this photo contest regardless of number of votes have a chance to appear in moderndog magazine. Photo selection for inclusion in the magazine is solely at the discretion of moderndog. Moderndog reserves the right to verify, in its sole judgment, winner eligibility. Winner will be required to answer a skill-testing question. Anyone cheating will be disqualified. Dogs winning any previous Modern Dog Star Dog or Cover Dog contest are prohibited from winning a second time. Modern Dog also reserves the right to disqualify any entry at Modern Dog's discretion. Moderndog reserves the right to change these contest rules at any time. Inappropriate photos and comments will be deleted at Modern Dog's sole discretion. Bullying, name calling or other unsportsmanlike behaviour, whether on or documented on another platform such as Facebook, can result in disqualification at Modern Dog's sole discretion. This contest is intended to be fun and in good spirit; if you don't have something nice to say about someone else's entry, please say nothing at all. :) Good luck!
