Writer With Dogs Photo Contest

It has been been almost a year since I had a dog photo contest so I think it is time.

Send your dog photos to my e-mail address bb-bjd@comcast.net . Deadline for receiving photos is November 10. Winner will receive a $100 check made out to their favorite animal shelter. Have fun and raise money for a good cause! In submitting photos you agree I can post them on my blog and on Facebook. Photos will be posted on Facebook and everyone can vote for their favorite. I will share the link here to the photos as soon as they are up. There will be a week of voting and on November 18th the winner will be announced.


So here are the rules:
  • Send me one or two photos of your dog or dogs, include a short bio on them and what makes them special (they are all special, but sometimes there is a great 'tale' behind a dog that isn't always wagging). Please send in jpg format.
  • Include a short blurb about your local rescue group and a link to their site.
  • Be sure I have your contact information.
Remember to send to my e-mail address - bb-bjd@comcast.net. Photos will also be posted on this blog as they come in! So keep checking back.

Buy a new dog photo book and enter a dog photo contest to win money for your favorite rescue good. Ahhh, life is good!
