2021 Above & Beyond Star Search Rules
No Entry Fees!!!! Submit your photos for FREE!!!
Photo entries must be of a rescued/adopted English Setter or English Setter mix. Your rescue does not have to be from Above and Beyond English Setter Rescue.
Photo can have other animals included but no people (other than Santa Claus).
Please limit your entries to one picture per family. Participant's Registration information will remain confidential. Submit a photo of your dog(s). Include your dog's name(s), your name and address (address will not be displayed only city and State), and an introduction sharing why your entry should be the next A & B Calendar STAR! Please limit intro to 300 characters or less. Connect with the voting public - like the stars walking the red carpet at the Academy Awards!!! Your fans are waiting!!!!!!!!!!!
If your dog has been a previous first place winner and appeared on our calendar cover between 2016 – 2020, your dog will not be eligible to win the first place cover spot. Your dog can win one of the 12 larger photos inside the calendar.
Everyone is eligible to vote. There is no limit to the amount of votes you can cast or the number of dogs that you can vote for. Here's how it works. Each vote costs $1.00 in the form of a donation. The minimal donation amount is $5.00 (which allows you to cast 5 votes). Your donation is instantly converted into a vote bank. Then you can cast you votes on your favorite star or stars.
When you purchase your "votes" you are actually making a donation to the Above & Beyond English Setter Rescue Medical Fund. You, the voter, have the starring role in providing a happily ever after to a setter in medical need. Being a 501c3 non-profit organization, any votes purchased is actually a tax deductible donation. When you complete your transaction to purchase votes, you will receive a confirmation email. This will serve as your tax deductible receipt. Contest donations are processed by a secure (SSL, PCI-Compliant) payment processor. All major credit cards and Visa and MasterCard debit cards are accepted. You may need to contact your credit card company as some may block as unusual activity and want you to validate you are the person completing this donation.
Please share the contest with your Star's voting public - all your family, friends, and fans!!! If you are entering a photo, you will have access to a share link which you can email. To really make your dog a Calendar Star, you need to promote, promote, promote! Share links are automatically created when you enter your photo so social media networking is a snap. Face Book, Twitter, Pinterest, etc. - there's no limit! The more you share the better you fair! Guess that makes you a "
All submissions must be of good digital quality to retain detail when enlarged. Entry photo must be animal only – no people. Multiple pets can appear in the picture provided one of the pets is a rescued English setter or setter/mix. Optimal photo should be sized to fit on an 8.5" wide x 11" tall format.
If your submission is of poor quality, it will not be eligible for the grand prize Cover. It could still win one of the coveted supporting roles – as one of the larger photos appearing in our January – December pages.
Any photo submission which does not comply with the above rules will be disqualified by Above & Beyond English Setter Calendar coordinator.
All winners will be determined by electronic vote tabulations under the supervision of Gogo Photo Contest, whose decisions are final and binding.
NOTE: Entries who do not place in the top 13 will still have at their photo included in the 2021 Above & Beyond English Setter Calendar.
