Fidelco Guide Dogs invites you to enter our 2023 Calendar Photo Contest! We are using GoGo Photo Contest to offer an interactive voting platform that allows you to submit photos to win a spot in the 2023 calendar and raise funds for Fidelco. All proceeds will support Fidelco's life-changing mission to partner people who are blind with German Shepherd guide dogs, providing all clients with increased independence to improve their lives and the world around them.
How It Works:
There are four categories for photo entries:
- Fidelco Guide Dogs - dogs in harness are preferred but not required.
- Fidelco Pups - pups in their red Fidelco vest are preferred but not required.
- Fidelco Breed Dogs
- Fidelco Career Change Dogs
Submissions will be opened at 12:00:00 AM (Eastern Time) on Friday, July 15, 2022 through 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time) on Monday, August 15, 2022.
Voting begins at 12:00:00 AM (Eastern Time) on Monday, August 1, 2022 and ends at 6:00:00 PM (Eastern Time) on Wednesday, August 31, 2022.
Please post the highest resolution image and largest file size available. Horizontal images are preferred.
There will be three winners per category and one overall winner. Winners are determined by number of votes. Votes cost $1 each, and there is no limit on how many times people can vote. The photos that receive the most votes in their category wins that category. The photo with the most votes overall wins the overall contest.
The winning photos will be featured in Fidelco's 2023 calendar.* The top three category winners will receive a copy of the 2023 Fidelco calendar, and the overall winner will receive five copies of the calendar and a Fidelco jacket.
The voting proceeds are all tax-deductible donations to Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation. All votes must be paid for online via the contest's secure checkout system; you will receive a tax receipt by email when your transaction is complete.

*To be considered for inclusion in the Fidelco calendar, a high-resolution horizontal digital image of the winning photo must be available to send upon the end of the contest. A high-resolution file is 8 megapixels or larger, some cell phone photos may not qualify. If the winning photos do not meet the formatting criteria, Fidelco will highlight the photo on another platform, or arrange to use a different photo of the same dog(s) that will work.
