    [/FONT]
    [/FONT][FONT=&quot]Every picture that is submitted and falls within the above rules will be eligible to be voted on as a winner. [FONT=&quot]

    You will have 2 weeks to submit your pictures.

    Nominations will be opened for 1 week to pick the top 10 candidates. If there are less than 10 entries in the first 2 weeks, additional submitting will be allowed for the 3rd week until 10 entries are submitted.

    A poll will be set up for the 4 th week along with the top 10 pictures and voting will continue through the end of the month.

    The winner will be announced the first week of the following month.

    [/FONT][/FONT][FONT=&quot]If, in a contest,[/FONT][FONT=&quot] the[/FONT][FONT=&quot]re is a tie between two or more dogs, there will be a 24 hour tie-breaker voted on by members. If there is still a tie, there will be an additional 24 hour tie-breaker voted on by staff members, and if a decision still cannot be made, the first available administrator will decide the winner.

    [FONT=&quot]Each entry should name the owner (their pitbull-chat.com handle) the dog’s name and age. For example, a reply should read…[/FONT][FONT=&quot]
