Site News: A Contest!

Edit: I am officially adding a ‘cat’ category for the contest too, complete with its own t-shirt and dog cat bandana. Woot!

Second Edit: Contest has been extended until June 30!

Well, I finally went and did it: I ordered a few of the tee shirts I designed. I’m pretty proud of how they came out. And so I’m going to give away a couple of them to a couple of you. And, since Autumn has just ordered a whole bunch of nifty dog-bandanas for her business, I’m going to filch a couple of those to use as prizes as well.

So, let’s have a little photo contest. For the next few weeks, I want people to send me pictures. There will be two categories: creative, cute, or otherwise noteworthy pictures of dogs, for the first. Pictures that are evocative of San Francisco (though they need not be from San Francisco) for the second. First prize from each category will be a tee shirt (I have large and extra-large… if you need a different size, let me know and I will see what I can do). Second prize will be a Pup Scouts logo dog bandana. Or, if you win first prize and would prefer the bandana, which I admit is totally adorable, I won’t be offended, just let me know. (I will be mentioning the contest in every post until the submission period is over, but I’ll try not to let it get too terribly tiresome.)

How to enter: either upload your picture(s) to one of the photo sharing sites (such as imgur, flickr, or any other one) and leave a link in the comments of my blog, or email me the photo at the address ‘alang’ (at sign) ‘dogsofsf’ (period) ‘com’. (Sorry about the obfuscation, but I deal with enough spam in my day job.)

Details: Only two pictures per person, please, although the pictures can be in either category, or in both (e.g. a picture of a dog posing in front of the Golden Gate). Please submit pictures of no less than 1024×768 pixels, and the larger the better. Pictures must be submitted by Monday, June 11th. Autumn and I, possibly assisted by other parties, will narrow the pictures down to a small group (3? 5?) for each category, and then visitors will be able to vote on them. (Submission of a picture allows DoSF a limited, non-exclusive license to display your image on the blog.)

If you have any other questions about the contest, feel free to drop them in the comments below. And I hope we’ll get at least a few entries, otherwise I’m going to end up feeling rather silly, and with several extra tee shirts on hand.

    Nice website for SF Pup Scouts!
    I’ll take this as a photo challenge of sorts. Hope to have something to submit soon…

      I tried to email you my photos, but I got a mail delivery error. So I’ll try another method.

      This is Penny, a beagle-corgi cross who lives in Orange County, CA. She adopted us after her previous owner died in a land mine explosion in Iraq. She had a long road to get healthy, but as you can see she’s doing great! She’s about seven years old, though we don’t know exactly. :)

      The first picture is of Penny helping my sister study for a law school exam. The second is Memorial Day at Huntington Dog Beach.

        Thank you! I will enter you immediately.

        As for the bounce, I know what happened. I have the maximum email size on my server set to 10 megs. I will need to turn that off before this happens to someone else too. Now if I can only remember how to do that…

    I seem to remember you said photographs of cats were welcome, but I cannot find the comment. So, are photographs of cats welcome? I understand if they are not, but thought I’d ask. Thanks.

    • Adam Lang says:

      Absolutely. Not sure how they’ll be counted; if I get enough feline submissions I may make it a separate category. But ‘caturday supplement’ submissions are definitely welcome.

    I’m sad that I just came across your blog today, as I have some great pictures of my dog, my cat, my dog with my cat AND a great recent pic I took of a friend’s cat (which, though I love my animals much more than anybody else’s, I would have to say the pic is quite fantastic).

    Any late entries allowed?!
