    Pet of the Month Competition Rules

    In order to ensure the competition runs smoothly each month, the mods and admin have set out a couple of rules. Please follow these when submitting an entry or nomination.
    As of 15/02/2013 all members wanting to enter must have been a member for at least 60 days and have a non spam post count of at least 60.
    General Rules:-

    1) You may enter the competition by two different methods, self-entry and by nomination.

    2) Self entry submissions must be your own pet. Entering a pet belonging to someone else is not permitted.

    3) You may nominate another TFF member's pet for entry. Please seek their permission first, as nominations will not be accepted unless the nominee's agreement can be verified. Nomination of a pet belonging to a non-member is not permitted.

    4) Entries and nominations will be accepted for 1 calendar month before voting commences.

    5) Entries are limited to 1 entry per member per competition.

    6) Voting polls will commence on the 14th of the month and close on the 28th of the month.

    7) For example, entries for September TOTM will be accepted from 14th August to 13th September. Voting will commence on 14th September, and the poll closed and winner announced on 28th September.

    8) The moderators and admin reserve the right to accept or reject any nomination or entry as they see fit.

    9) The 'Pet of the Month' winner may not submit an entry, or be nominated for entry, for at least the next two competitions. For example, the winner of the September POTM may not enter or be entered into the October or November competitions.

    10) Any attempt to influence competition results, other than by casting your allocated vote, is not permitted and may result in your entry being removed and / or further action being taken.

    11) The moderator's decision is final.

    How to submit your competition entry:-

    12) To enter the competition, two almost identical photographs are required. The first photograph to be submitted is your competition entry. The second photograph should be identical to the first as far as possible, with a slip of paper showing your screen name "TFF POTM" and the date clearly written on it. This is to ensure that the pet entered does belong to the entrant. The moderators reserve the right to ask for further verification if required.
    13) Your photographs must be uploaded to the forum, do not use a photo sharing website. The reason for this is so that in the event if you close your photo websharing site or delete photographs the pictures will still remain on the forum.

    How to nominate another TFF member's pet:-

    14) To make a nomination, please seek permission from the pet owner first, then post details of the pet. The nominee must then confirm their agreement for the pet to be entered, or the nomination will not be accepted. Once the nominee's agreement is confirmed, the same two photographs must be provided as for a self-entry as described above.

    15) Pictures placed by members who are not in good standing with the forum at the time of posting and/or judging such picture will be disqualified from entering for the specific month’s competition.
