Calendar Photo Session:
The top 12 vote getters will win a professional pet portrait session by Shauna Madden Photography at a location TBA in the Cape Breton Regional Municipality area on Friday, June 24 between 4 PM - 8 PM ADT, Saturday, June 25 between 3 PM - 7 PM ADT, or Sunday, June 26 between 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM for a professional pet portrait session.
If you are unable to commit to a photo session during those times or find yourself unable to travel to these pre-selected locations, you forfeit your win and the next top vote getter will take your pet's spot in the calendar, no exceptions.
The top vote recipient will win the coveted cover photo for the 2023 calendar, as well as having their pet featured as a pet of the month. The following 11 recipients with the most votes will be eligible to have their pet featured as a pet of the month.
The photographer, Shauna Madden, will choose the best image of the pets to be used in the calendar, as well as in which month that image will appear.
The pet receiving the highest number of new votes each week over the course of the 6-week contest will win a mini-contest prize from one of the participating businesses.
Each pet may only win one weekly mini-contest once.
In the event of a tie, a random computerized draw will be held between the highest vote getters of the week to determine that week's winner.
In the event that there are no new votes for that week, a random computerized draw will be held for all eligible pets.
Certain individual business restrictions and limitations may apply and may vary by business. Shauna Madden Photography and Coastal K9 are not responsible for these restrictions and eligibility requirements as determined by each business.
