CRITERIA FOR CONTEST PHOTO ENTRIES
1. Non-refundable entry fee.
The $20.00 entry fee for each photo is non-refundable even if the photo cannot be used, is disqualified, or, for any other reason, cannot be entered into the Contest. 2. Multiple photo entries of a pet.
Regardless of the number of pet photo submissions for any pet, a pet with a winning photo will be featured in one of the monthly SLPR Homeward Bound 2023 Calendar spots. For pets with multiple photo submissions, SLPR, in its sole and absolute discretion, will select the photo it deems as the best photo of the pet. Increase the chances of getting your pet featured in the calendar by submitting multiple entries. 3. Minimum photo resolution, horizontal layout and format.
Photo submissions must be in color, at least 2400 x 1800 pixels, in a horizontal (landscape) layout, and in one of the following formats: jpeg, png, tiff. 4. Only original photos – no filters or editing.
Editing photos, the use of filters (i.e., Snapchat or Instagram filters), or otherwise altering a photo image in any way is prohibited. Altered photos will be disqualified and the entrant will receive no refund of any entry fee. SLPR's ruling as to whether a photo was altered or not is final and non-appealable. Photo entries must be the original creation of the photo entry participant. 5. Prohibited photo subject matter.
Only photos of pets will be accepted. Photos containing multiple pets are permitted, however, SLPR recommends that no more than two pets appear in any photo. Each additional pet which appears in any photo will diminish the resolution of each pet in the photo. No photo may contain any copyrighted material, feature commercial advertising or products, or contain any material which SLPR deems, in its sole and absolute discretion, as objectionable. This is a pet photo contest. No images of humans allowed. 6. A few tips.
You can use a digital camera or your smart phone to take photos for entry into the Contest. Whichever you use, set your camera to the highest quality setting. Make sure your pet is in focus, that your photo is not over or under-exposed (too light or too dark) and take more than one photo so you can select the best one.
