Star Cat Rules and Regulations
Contest closes Wednesday, February 8, 2023 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. There is one Grand Prize available to be won, which consists of your cat appearing in a full-page feature in the spring issue of moderncat magazine, which has an intrinsic value to the winner, plus a photo of your cat inset on the front cover of the magazine. The winner must be able to provide high resolution photos of their cat(s). The winner’s failure/inability to provide usable photos (sufficient quality and resolution/appropriate) of their cat constitutes refusal of the Grand Prize, in which case an alternate cat will be chosen to appear in the magazine at moderncat’s discretion. ©2022/23 Modern Cat Inc.
Rules and Regulations
The cat receiving the most votes in moderncat’s Star Cat competition will appear in a full-page feature story in moderncat magazine and will appear inset on the front cover of the same issue. Photos provided by the winner 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 it is the winner’s responsibility to provide a selection of high-resolution photos of their cat and to answer interview questions about their cat. The contest closes at 12 pm PST, Wednesday, February 8, 2023. The winner must be available to provide high resolution photos of their cat and interview question answers 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, and social networking (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, 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/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. Cats winning 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. Bullying, name calling or other unsportsmanlike behaviour, whether on moderncat.com or documented on another platform such as Facebook, can result in disqualification at Modern Cat’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!
