HOW TO ENTER

 

To enter the contest, you must be a registered user with us by visiting http://www.yeepet.com to sign up. Then your pet must have a pet profile at Yeepet.com. If you do not have a pet profile, you can either create a pet profile after your registration, then submit your pet photo(s) to become a contestant; or submit your pet photo(s) directly after your registration at Yeepet.com. In addition,you must be located in the US in order to receive your prize if you win.

 

Submitting your pet photo(s) directly is highly recommended as it allows you to create a pet profile at the same time so that you can enter the contest immediately. Each uploaded photo can receive only one vote from a registered member, but a member can vote for multiple photos that belong to one pet. Each of these votes will count towards the photo’s total number of votes. You can vote for others’ pet photos and your own pet photo(s) as well. All photos submitted will be posted on the contest page and are available for voting before the contest expires. Submitted photos and any written captions must be the original creations of the Contest entrant. Written captions must be in English. Photos are void if they are in part illegible, or incomplete. Any photo that includes content that is deemed inappropriate, indecent or obscene, as determined by the Yeepet staff in their sole discretion, will be removed from the contest. No responsibility is assumed for late, lost, incomplete, illegible or misdirected photos. Yeepet reserves the right to reject any contest submission if it does meet these eligibility requirements, or for any other reason at our sole discretion. We also reserve the right to remove inappropriate or copyrighted photos. 

 

The contest begins at midnight, Pacific time, on September 15, 2011. Voting for the contest also ends at midnight, Pacific time, on October 16, 2011.

 

 

HOW TO VOTE 

 

Registered members at Yeepet.com will vote for the pet photos. Contest entrants may submit photos and attempt to garner votes for their pet. You may vote for as many photos as you want including your own pet photos, but you can vote only once for each photo. You can only vote for your favorite pet photos on the contest page although the photos are associated with specific pets.  You may vote for other member’s pets to encourage votes for yours. You may cast one vote for each of your pet’s photos.  The top three voted pets, determined by the pet photos with the highest total number of votes, will be displayed on the Contest page instantly and is updated whenever the page is refreshed. This is for tracking purposes only, and no prizes will be awarded until the contest termination.
