Two Great Dog Photo Contests

Good Morning! As a dog owner, one of the best things I love about my dogs is getting the perfect shot with my camera. Purina Petcentric understands this and is having a special contest to celebrate that fact.

In accordance with The National Dog Show will be broadcast on NBC on Thanksgiving Day (November 25) at 12:00 P.M. EST. John O'Hurley—who's best known as Mr. Peterman from Seinfeld— will be the host.In accordance with this show, Purina will be having a special contest where five winners will win a Flip 4GB Camcorder Camera and compete for the Best in Show photo.

There is a limit of one entry per household, however, you can enter the one photo that you will be using in more than one category. Also, the photo size limit is 1 MB. All entries must be received by 11:59:59 a.m. CT on December 30, 2010 to be eligible for consideration. The subject in the photo must be owned by the person entering the contest.

The five contest winners will be chosen by total votes through the website. 40% of the votes will count towards the category winners. You can see and vote on the photos at the Petcentric website. Purina will donate a dollar for every entry (up to 50,000) to adoptapet.com.

The Grand Prize

The best in show contest winner will receive a trip for two to Aruba. This will be decided by the judges. How do they decide? 50% is how well it fits with the category theme, 25% is based on composition and the other 25% is based on originality/creativity.

A Contest For November

In addition to The Dog Show Contest, Petcentric is having a special contest that is just for the month of November called It's Game Time! The object of this contest is to capture your dog's athletic side whether they're catching their favorite ball or being the best cheerleader ever. One lucky winner will receive a 4GB Flip Camcorder and a Nikon Coolpix Camera. This contest ends on November 30th.

Let's Discuss!

Have you entered your pets in any photo contests lately? Are you planning to watch The National Dog Show this year? I will be watching the show and if I can find the right photo, then I will probably give the contest a shot too.
