SuperDog of the Year Competition Terms and Conditions
Please note: the winner of the SuperDog of the Year Competition is NOT decided by the highest number of Public Votes.
How to vote:
- To vote in the SuperDog of the Year Competition simply vote for your favourite image which is featured in the Public Voting area of our website.
- Multiple Votes on the same image from the same person are not possible. The image with the most Votes from the public receives 10 points, with the amount of points decreasing to 1 point for the 10th most Voted for image.
- In order to protect entrants and to make the Competition as fair as possible (whilst still making it accessible to the public to vote for and appreciate professional dog portraiture), any image which we suspect has received Votes from artificial sources, will have their total Votes in the competition capped at 500.
- A panel of 15 judges (consisting of 5 dog owners, 5 professional photographers and 5 competition sponsors) will each choose their top 10 images, rating them from 10 points to 1 point. We will combine these results from all four groups of judges (Public Vote, Dog Owners, Photographers, Sponsors) to determine the 2020 SuperDog of the Year winner.
- In the event of a tie, the winner will be calculated by SuperDog of the Month Limited accordingly.
- Votes from competitions do not count when compiling the scoring for the winner of SuperDog of the Year
