Star Cat Contest Rules and Regulations


Modern Cat’s Star Cat Photo Contest, Rules and Regulations
Contest closes Friday, February 2, 2018, 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 cat. Any cat that has previously won a Modern Cat Star Cat Contest or Modern Cat Cover Cat Contest is ineligible to win again. There is one Grand Prize available to be won, appearing in a photo spread of an upcoming issue of moderncat magazine, which has an intrinsic value to the winner, plus a photo shoot, at a date and time to be arranged, but taking place 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 cat available for the photo shoot within the specified time period constitutes refusal of the Grand Prize in which case an alternate cat will be chosen to appear in the magazine at moderncat’s discretion. ©2017/18 Modern Cat Inc

Rules and Regulations
The cat receiving the most votes in moderncat’s Star Cat competition will appear in a photo spread in an upcoming issue of moderncat magazine and will take part in a photo shoot orchestrated by moderncat. Photos resulting from this shoot (or a subsequent photo shoot if retakes are deemed necessary by moderncat) will be selected at moderncat’s sole discretion to appear in moderncat magazine and on moderncat.com. All photos will be chosen solely at moderncat’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, Friday, February 2, 2018. The winner must be available to take part in a photo shoot within one week of this date. You may enter as many photos as you like (the entered photo must, obviously, be of a cat) 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 one 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/home per 12 hours). To be considered a legitimate vote, a voter must visit the photo contest page of the entered cat on moderncat.com 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 moderncat’s sole discretion. All photos entered in this 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 moderncat. Moderncat 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. Winners of any previous Modern Cat Star Cat or Cover Cat contest are prohibited from winning a second time. Modern Cat also reserves the right to disqualify any entry at Modern Cat’s discretion. Moderncat reserves the right to change these contest rules at any time. Inappropriate photos and comments will be deleted at Modern Cat’s sole discretion. Good luck!
