Voting Period

November 1 - November 15, 2022

Between November 1 and November 15, 2022, the public can view all photo submissions and cast their votes by clicking the heart icon next to each of their favourite photos.

Keep in mind that top-voted entries must be scrutinized for compliance with contest rules before winners can be announced.

Ground Rules on Voting

Between November 1 and November 15, 2022, you're invited to view all the submissions at mslsr.ca/moments and vote for your favourites. Review the rules below for voting.

Voting Period

The photo contest voting period is between November 1, 2022 and midnight on November 15, 2022. During this timeframe, votes can be cast by visiting mdlsr.ca/moments. On this page, users can view all the photos that were submitted in accordance with the submission requirements.

A vote is cast when a user clicks the heart icon to the bottom left of a given photo.

Eligible Voters

The Photo Contest is open to the general public. This includes MD employees. Any public user who visits mdlsr.ca/moments may vote for the photo(s) of their choice.

Voting Irregularities

Users may only vote for the same photo once every six hours (based on IP address and device fingerprint detection) to discourage unfair repetitive voting practices.

Vote tallies will be periodically monitored throughout the Photo Contest. Any voting irregularities will be flagged, and excessive votes from one IP address and/or device will be removed accordingly.

Without limiting any other portion of these Rules, the MD reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to disqualify any entrant should votes be deemed invalid.

Winner Verification and Announcement

Winners will be determined by online vote tally, in addition to compliance with contest submission requirements.

Analysis and Verification of Top-Voted Photos

The first determinant of a winning photo is how many votes it receives between November 1 and November 15, 2022 — but it is not the sole determinant. The top 13 highest-voted photos must also be examined to ensure they meet the minimum photo eligibility requirements. Any photo that fails to meet image quality thresholds will be discarded. If this happens, the next most popular photo in line will be considered. This process will continue until there are 13 verified winners.
