Hello GSD Community,
Now that Summer is behind us and we're enjoying the beautiful Autumn colors, we thought this would be a perfect time to hold a Halloween Dog Costume Contest. We have some amazing prizes we'll be giving away (thanks to some of our wonderful sponsors) so make sure you don't forget to enter the contest.
Here are the details and rules of the contest:
The Fur-Raising Halloween Costume Contest runs from September 29, 2014 to October 31, 2014.
There are 8 communities from the Petguide.com family that will be participating in this contest.
September 29 to October 12 (11:59pm EST) - Contest is open for photo submissions.
October 13 (12pm EST) to October 19 (11:59pm EST) - Voting period.
October 20 - Winners will be announced in each of the communities.
October 21 to October 30 (11:59pm EST) - The 1st Prize winner from each of the 8 communities will be further entered in a contest exclusively on Petguide.com where the voting will be open to EVERYONE (since Petguide.com doesn't require membership to vote).
October 31 - the GRAND PRIZE winner will be announced on Petguide.com.
1. Every user is only allowed to submit ONE photo for the contest. If you submit more than one photo for the contest, we will only consider the FIRST photo you submitted.
2. In order to enter the contest, you must submit a photo of your dog wearing a costume. The photo can be a current one or one that was taken in the past.
3. If you have more than one dog, you are welcome to gather them together in their costume and submit ONE picture of them together.
4. By submitting a photo in this contest, you are agreeing to give PetGuide.com and this forum permission to post the photo you submit (whether you win or not) on our social media accounts and on Petguide.com in conjunction with news about the contest.
5. Mods and Admins will NOT be editing your posts to submit a different photo for you so please make sure you choose carefully before you submit your ONE and only photo for the contest.
6. The photo MUST contact an image of your dog(s) in a costume. Photos that do not meet this criteria will NOT be considered for voting.
7. All users will have ONE vote when the voting period begins.
8. Winners are determined by the three users who receive the most votes (1st place, 2nd place, and 3rd place).
