Calendar Contest Rules
General contest information
The contest is open to everyone. You may submit as many entries as you wish, provided you pay the required entry fee for each. Submitting more than one entry will not guarantee or help your chances of selection.
ALL entries meeting the criteria listed below will be printed somewhere in the calendar. The winners of the 11 monthly features will be selected through a combination of judging and online voting.
The cover photo and one month of choice were auctioned to the highest bidder at the 2023 Gala for Animals live auction.
Animal Friends Alliance reserves the right to refuse any photographs due to quality and/or any other reason the photo is deemed inappropriate. All decisions are final.
All contest entrants must agree to the disclaimer below stating that Animal Friends Alliance may use the photos.
Submitting your photo
We must have a completed entry form and fee before your photo will be considered. Photos emailed without completion of the entry form will not be considered.
Contest participants can pay with credit card online through the entry form.
Photo Quality and Format
All images must be digital and submitted electronically (no prints) and be at least 720×450 pixels and saved in JPEG (.jpg) format, but BIGGER is BETTER! Original size preferred. File formats other than JPEG will not be accepted. Photos that do not meet these size and format requirements will NOT be considered for a large monthly feature photo but will still be included as a thumbnail somewhere in the calendar. Submitters may ask for us to check the size for them and re-submit, but otherwise the submitter will NOT be contacted automatically if their image is too small.
Tips: Photos with a clear subject, good lighting, and a non-distracting background are often the most successful. Heartwarming, scenic, or humorous photos are also popular.
Mark a date with a photo
This includes your photo contest entry. If your photo entry wins one of the large monthly spots in the contest, you will be able to submit a different pet photo if desired, free of charge, to appear on your reserved date.
