The Daily Dog Blog and Heart Like a Dog are proud to announce the 2nd annual Dogs of Blogville Calendar contest.
Since this is only the second time we have done this, we’re still learning, but we do have SOME rules.
They go like this:
We (The Daily Dog Blog and Heart Like a Dog) make the rules.
Submission portion of contest begins immediately.
Photos are limited to one photo per blog (so we can showcase as many dogs as possible.) If you have more than one dog that represents your blog you can either submit one dog or a photo with both (all) your dogs.
Dogs who have crossed the bridge are eligible to participate.
Photos should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org AND email@example.com
No photo editing allowed. Any editing deemed necessary will be done by Julie.
Photo should be a good, high resolution digital image (11″ x 8½” @ 300 dpi output, the largest setting on minimum 6MP camera.) Best quality images are approximately 2832 pixels by 2128 pixels at 300 dpi and a minimum of 1MB.(I have no idea what this means, but thankfully Julie does!)
We strongly suggest your photo is oriented in Landscape as opposed to Portrait. (This makes for easier formatting when designing the calendar.
Submission portion of contest ends Tuesday, August 20th at midnight.
We reserve the right to use your submitted photo on our blogs for promotional purposes only, with credit given to the photo/blog owner of course!
Voting will begin Saturday, August 24th at 12:01 AM and end Saturday, August 31st at 11:59 PM.
Voting is limited to once every 24 hours. (More instructions when the voting process begins.)
Last year our Dogs of Blogville Calendar contest raised right around $500 which was donated to Roxanne Hawn at Champion of My Heart. This year our fundraising efforts will be for Benny The Frenchie.
For those of you new to this blog, you can read all about last year’s contest here.
All I can say is the contest exceeded my expectations, and Julie designed a damn fine, high quality calendar that I’ve been enjoying all year.
I mean really, how can you look at this picture every day in August and not smile?
Last year we had 20 dogs enter the contest and I’m very pleased to say that Julie managed to fit all the dogs in the calendar. Of course there are no guarantees we can do that again this year, it all depends on the number of entries.
So start digging through your photos or grab your camera and your dog(s) and start snapping. You’ve got one week.
