2014 Calendar Contest
Calling all DVGRR dogs – here’s your chance to show the world how cute you are! Tell your adopted families we are now accepting photos for our 2014 Calendar Contest…YOU could be one of the featured Goldens to grace next year’s calendar. Our calendar continues to be super popular with adopters and supporters alike so lots of folks will see your happy face and sparkling eyes. We are looking for great shots of DVGRR adopted dogs showing off, acting regal, being silly, enjoying a special holiday, frolicking outside, lounging inside, or just sporting that great Golden “smile.” Remember, for a small donation your family can also have birthdays, “gotcha days” (the date of adoption), or memorial dates published in the calendar.
Please read carefully and if you have any questions email email@example.com
Thank you and Happy picture taking!
- Deadline for submission is July 14, 2013.
- Send us your best shots, with a $15.00 donation per picture. We will be choosing one for each month, however, we will also attempt to place a photo of each dog submitted into the calendar in some form.
- Photos will be judged on composition, quality, and emotional appeal.
- All photos submitted must be horizontal in orientation.
- Digital images are strongly preferred. Please follow these guidelines:
a. Set your camera to take photos at the highest resolution possible.
b. If possible, name your image(s) with dog’s name and your last name. If sending more than one photo, number appropriately. Example: MorganBaker01.jpg, MorganBaker02;jpg, MorganBaker03.jpg.
c. Submit your image(s) in jpg or tif format on a CD or send as an email attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do not make the file smaller to email – send the original largest file.
d. If sending via email, include a note in the message body with pertinent information so we can match your picture with your information. You will receive a confirmation of your submission within 48 hours; if you don’t receive one, assume it did not go through and please re-send.
e. Please do not print out digital images; we need the original electronic file.
- Print photos (i.e., non-digital) must be 4" x 6" or larger; larger is preferred. Please place a label on the back of each print with your dog’s name and your name. (Don’t write directly on the print itself.)
- Only DVGRR dogs are eligible. (Other family pets may be included in the photo with your Golden.)
- No humans in the photo please—dogs and other pets only.
- Photos must be previously unpublished, non-professional images; no copyright photos accepted.
- Photos become property of DVGRR and cannot be returned.
- DVGRR reserves the right to use pictures submitted in Golden Opportunities and on our website.
- Include a brief story about your dog and what he or she means to you with each picture. Stories may be edited for length if selected for use.
- Please submit a separate form for each dog whose picture or date information is included.
