We are excited to announce the return of the Chuckit! Challenge for 2020! It’s time to grab your camera or phone, get outside with your dog and their favourite Chuckit! toy, and get snapping!

We have teamed up with Forest Holidays, which means that the Chuckit! Challenge Champion will get their paws on a dog-friendly holiday worth £1,000 — a pawsome prize for you and your dog to share!

So, if you think your dog has what it takes to be our next champ, simply submit your dog’s most impressive action shots with their favourite Chuckit! toys to our Facebook and Twitter pages, using the hashtag #ChuckitChallenge2020. From there, entries will be judged by fantastic judge, who will be announced very soon. 

Check out everything you need to know about how to enter below:

By entering the Chuckit! Challenge, you confirm that you have read these Terms and agree to be bound by them. Please also note that this competition is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with, Facebook or Twitter.

ENTRY

Entry is open to residents of the United Kingdom aged 18 years or over unless otherwise specified.

Employees of Chuckit!, Pedigree Wholesale Limited and any associated group companies and their immediate families are ineligible to enter. Any such entries will be invalid.

The closing time for entries is Friday 12th June 2020, 11.59pm GMT. Any entries received after this time will be disregarded.

Entry to the competition must be by the applicable method and in accordance with the deadlines as indicated below.

No automated, machine assisted, third-party, syndicate or other group entries will be accepted.  We shall disqualify any entries which, in our reasonable opinion, appear to have used any of these entry methods.

Entrants agree that if they are selected as a finalist, their image will be put forth for a public vote on Facebook to decide the overall winner.

Entrants agree that Twitter entries can be uploaded and shared on Facebook, and vice versa.

Entrants agree that by entering, they are happy to have their pictures and videos shared across Chuckit!’s social platforms, website and blog.

ENTRY METHODS

Entry is by Twitter and Facebook only.

To enter, individuals must upload a picture or video of their dog playing with a Chuckit! toy to Chuckit!’s Facebook page or to Twitter using the hashtag #ChuckitChallenge2020. Entrants must ensure that their profiles are public.

The independent judge will choose a selected number of finalists in June who will make it through to the public vote stage. The finalists with the most public votes by the closing date will win.

VALID ENTRIES

Any entries which are incomplete, incorrect, incomprehensible, or not received by Chuckit! by the due deadline will be void.

The winner must claim their prize by Friday 14th August, or another winner will be selected.

In the event of any fault, mistake, misunderstanding or dispute concerning the correctness or acceptability of any answers given by entrants, or the operation of any part of the competition the decision of Chuckit! shall be final and no correspondence will be entered into.

Valid entries must not show or attempt to show competitor products to that of Chuckit!

We have set a limitation to one vote per Facebook user per day to make sure that people cannot vote for their favourite multiple times in one day. Any member of the public is allowed one vote in a 24hr period and this is based on PST time, which means that voting refreshes at 8am every day.

PRIZES

Chuckit! will use an independent judging panel to choose the finalists.

Chuckit! reserves the right to change the judging panel at any given moment during the competition.

Chuckit! will open voting via the Chuckit! Facebook page where the public can vote for their favourite finalist to be the winner.

Two runners up will be entitled to the prize of a dog hamper.

The top prize will be a dog-friendly holiday worth £1,000 from Forest Holidays. 

The winning dog and their owner will also be invited to take part in a press shoot. If willing to participate, the winner must be available at a time and location that will be determined by Chuckit!. Chuckit! will provide up to £50 towards travel expenses.

The winner will be notified on the date the winning entry is selected — Friday 31st July 2019 — and will be given until 9pm, Friday 14th August 2020 to claim their prize. Failure to respond within the specified time period may result in forfeiture of the prize and another winner may be selected. However, Chuckit! will make reasonable efforts to contact the winner to ensure this does not happen.

Chuckit! accepts no responsibility for any costs associated with the prize that are not specifically included in the prize.

Prizes cannot be exchanged for a cash, voucher or product equivalent.

SPOT PRIZE GIVEAWAYS

The ‘spot prize giveaway’ competitions are open to anyone over the age of 18, except employees (and their families) of Chuckit! and anyone connected with the competition.

Each spot prize giveaway will be announced on Chuckit’s Facebook and Twitter pages on nominated days throughout the duration of the Chuckit! Challenge.

Entries to the competition are valid through either Facebook or Twitter but there will only be one overall winner picked at random from across both channels. 

Entries are only permitted on the posts relating to the spot prize giveaway by either commenting on Facebook or by replying on Twitter.

Each spot prize giveaway winner will be announced via Facebook and Twitter the following day.

If the winners do not come forward within 72 hours of the announcement, Chuckit! reserves the right to select another winner at random.

All entries must be uploaded before the deadline.

The Chuckit! spot prize giveaway competitions are in conjunction with the Chuckit! Challenge 2020 and therefore entries must abide by the same entry policies and standard terms. Winners and entrants for the spot prize competitions will be entered into the main Chuckit! Challenge competition too.
