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.
