Portrait Of The Month / Dog Of The Month / Virtual Dog Show

Terms and Conditions

The Xperience Group Portrait of the Month Competition Terms and Conditions. 'Portrait of the Month' also refers to 'Dog of the Month' Competitions and Light In The Black 'Virtual Dog Shows'.

The winners of the Xperience Group’s 'Portrait of the Month' and '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 starting January 2020,  ( UPDATE  21/6/20 ) or as soon as government announces that England, Scotland, N. Ireland and Wales are in accord with covid 19 regulations.

How to vote:


To vote, you need to ‘Like‘ or ‘Love‘ the image of your choice in the relevant Portrait of the Month competition album found on our Xperience Group Facebook page. The Winning Portrait image will have the most combined ‘Likes’ and ‘Loves’.

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.

Please read the Terms of Use for Portrait of the Month’s Facebook page and rules on voting here.
