Submission tips

Helpful guidelines for submitting photos

Note: If there is a content problem with your photo, we will let you know at the time of submission. The selection committee strives for a balance of small, large, young, old, purebred and mixed breed dogs. You must have full rights to the photos you submit, and we cannot provide photo credits. In submitting your photo, you are granting the dog calendar the right to use your photo in the calendar and in promotional materials such as posters and this website for future campaigns.
