The Xperience Group Dog of the Month Competition Terms and Conditions
The winners of the Xperience Group’s Dog of the Month Competitions are decided purely by the highest number of Likes or Loves on our monthly competition albums on our Facebook page.
There will be one winner announced each calendar month.
How to vote:
ENTRY OPEN FROM TUESDAY 2nd April 2019
To vote, you need to ‘Like‘ or ‘Love‘ the image of your choice in the relevant Dog of the Month competition album found on our Xperience Group Facebook page. The Winning dog(s)* image will have the most combined ‘Likes’ and ‘Loves’. * rules ammended 26/06/2019
Alternative ‘reactions’ (‘Haha‘, ‘Wow‘, ‘Sad‘ and ‘Angry‘) will not count as a vote. You can only vote for an image once: Facebook will only allow individual accounts to ‘like’ or ‘love’ once per image.
‘Likes‘ or ‘Loves‘ will only be counted on the images that are in the competition album on the Xperience group’s Facebook page. ‘Likes‘ or ‘Loves‘ on images shared outside of the album will not be counted.
In the event of a tie, the winning image will be decided by an independent judge chosen by The Xperience Group.
