How to Enter
There is a minimal $5 per photo to enter the contest which will cover our costs. You may submit more than one dog in the contest. Winners are determined by the dog that gets the highest number of votes. Votes cost $1.00 each. See “Voter Information” for more details.
Online: This method of entry will be available by visiting our website (www.gogophotocontest.com/GREATRescue) and following the directions provided to fill out the entry information, and submit. Photos should be in JPEG, JPG, PNG or GIF format, although JPEG/JPG is the preferred form. Photo size should be at least 270 pixels x 180 pixels in order to minimize photo distortion when viewed online.

Inappropriate entries will not be permitted and any donations related to those submissions will not be refunded.

- Each $1 donation counts as 1 vote. When you donate to vote, you will receive a "bank” of votes for the amount of your donation (ex. $5 donation equals 5 votes) that then need to be applied to the entries you wish to vote for. You can place all votes on one entry or place them on multiple entries. Each donation has a required $5 minimum.
- We encourage you to e-mail the contest link to family and friends and encourage them to vote for your favorite contestant's photo.
