About the event


PHOTO QUALITY AND FORMAT Photos must be IN FOCUS (not blurry) and landscape in orientation (aka horizontal or sideways).  Square or vertical images will be cropped to fit a horizontal calendar design (ideally 16:9 ratio).  This may substantially alter the photo and your photo may be excluded from voting if cropping causes the photo to no longer meet size and resolution requirements. All images must be digital and submitted electronically (no prints) and be at least 720×450 pixels and saved in JPEG (.jpg) format, but BIGGER is BETTER! Original size preferred. File formats other than JPEG will not be accepted. Photos not meeting these size and format requirements will NOT be considered for a large monthly feature photo but will still be included as a thumbnail somewhere in the calendar. Submitters may ask for us to check the size for them and re-submit, but otherwise the submitter will NOT be contacted automatically if their image is too small.

PHOTO NAME Please name electronic files with your pet’s name and your last name, example: FluffySmith.jpg

PHOTO CONTENT Cat(s) and/or dog(s) must be the focus of the photo (other animals may be in the photo, but no humans are allowed in photos). Tips: Photos with a clear subject, good lighting, and a non-distracting background are often the most successful.  Heartwarming, scenic, or humorous photos are also popular.

GENERAL CONTEST INFORMATION The contest is open to everyone. You may submit as many entries as you wish, provided you pay the required entry fee for each. Submitting more than one entry will not guarantee or help your chances of selection.  ALL entries meeting the criteria listed below will be printed somewhere in the calendar.
