Via PRWeb - A Halloween pet photo contest is giving pet owners across the country a chance to win up to $1,000 for their favorite nonprofit animal shelter or rescue. Plus, there's a virtual cornucopia of other great prizes for 13 winners in all!
The Pets Adviser and Embrace Pet Insurance Halloween Photo Contest kicks off Monday, October 8 and entries will be accepted through Thursday, November 1.
Pet owners may submit a photo of their dog or cat wearing a costume.
During the voting period, entrants and their friends will be able to vote once a day. The top 10 vote getters at the end of the voting period will be eligible for the Grand Prize — a $1,000 donation to the registered 501(c)3 nonprofit animal shelter or rescue of the winner’s choice, courtesy of Embrace Pet Insurance.
A panel of judges will make the final determination of all winners, based on creativity, originality, charm and appeal, and photo composition.
"Best Cat Photo" will get a designer cat litter box from Kitty a Go-Go, and "Best Dog Photo" earns a $100 box of toys from Kong. Other prizes will be presented by Bissell and by Pets Adviser. In all, 13 winners will be selected by the judges.
Dave Baker, editor and publisher of Pets Adviser, says the pet advice website is delighted to be able to offer this yearly contest. "Animal shelters and rescues operate on incredibly lean budgets. Housing an animal at a shelter might cost ten dollars a day. So any size donation helps a lot, but $1,000 will go a long way toward helping animals in need," said Baker.
