Modern Cat – Cat of the Week Photo Contest Rules and Regulations

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

You may enter as many photos as you like (the entered photo must, obviously, be of a cat or kitten) and are encouraged to promote voting for your cat through various streams, including word of mouth, email, blogging, and social networking (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+ etc.) You can vote for each cat once every 12 hours. Show your support of your favourite cats 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). To be considered a legitimate vote, a voter must visit the photo contest page of the entered cat 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 moderncat magazine. Photo selection for inclusion in the magazine is solely at the discretion of Modern Cat. Modern Cat reserves the right to verify, in its sole judgment, winner eligibility. Anyone cheating will be disqualified. Modern Cat reserves the right to change these contest rules at any time. Inappropriate photos and comments will be deleted. Good luck!
