Briefs for May 2, 2011: Pet Mates Calendar Contest under way
May 2, 2011
The Humane Society of Moffat County is now accepting entries for the 2012 Pet Mates Calendar Contest.
The contest is free, and digital photo entries must be submitted by May 21 to email@example.com.
The Humane Society recommends participants set their cameras to the highest resolution possible because photos will be enlarged.
Photos should be horizontal, in .jpg format, and at least 200 dpi and six inches wide. They should be emailed as an attachment.
The name and age of the pet should be included, as well as the name of the owner and his or her phone number and email address.
No more than two entries per family, and submissions must have been taken within the last year.
Pets must still be alive and live in the home.
Local business owners will judge the entries and choose a top 24. The public will vote by donation for the top 12.
The winners will be featured on a month and runners-up will be featured elsewhere in the calendar.
The contest is a fundraiser for the Humane Society.
Anyone who would like to have smaller photos, such as memorials, printed along the borders in the calendar can also submit them to the Humane Society's e-mail address.
There is a $5 charge per photo. Payments should be made to HSMC, P.O. Box 1587, Craig, CO, 81626.
For more information, call Carol Scott at 824-2103.
