What We’re Looking For

Special consideration will be given to mood studies, beautiful portraits, humor, action shots, unusual snapshots, and photos that capture the flavor of specific holidays. Photos that include humans or any evidence of indignity or injury will be immediately disqualified.

Photo Tips

  1. Stay in focus.
  2. Avoid cluttered backgrounds.
  3. No people are allowed in the photo.
  4. Pay attention to the lighting—make sure photo isn't too dark or too light (so it can be reproduced).
  5. Nothing inappropriate: no injuries, genitalia, eye goo, mouth sores, and so on.
  6. All images must be uploaded at the highest quality available in a .Tiff, .JPG, or .PNG format. This file has to be at least 300 dpi for the format of the calendar (width: 5.25 inches or height: 5.25 inches). Remember that we can reduce a photo in size successfully, but not enlarge it.
  7. Pets can be funny, cute, majestic, or artsy—just be creative.
  8. Avoid red or white reflective eyes.
  9. Make sure to include all requested information—your entry isn't complete without your pet's information (name, breed, gender) a brief pet bio.
