Rules

Contest Entry 
  • Any photo or caption deemed inappropriate as determined by the staff of Michigan Humane will be removed from the photo contest
  • Once entered, all photos become the property of Michigan Humane to be used for print and marketing purposes.
  • Entries must be submitted online. You may submit as many entries as you like. However, if friends or family members are encouraged to spread their votes out over multiple campaigns, this will reduce the chance of each pet photo winning a prize in the contest.
  • To submit your pet’s photo, a minimum $25 donation is required. This amount will enter you into the contest. The entry fee will be included in the overall funds donated to your campaign.

How You Can Win Prizes

Your pet’s photo could win a spot in the 2020 Michigan Humane Calendar and other prizes in one of three ways!

  • First, at the end of the contest, the top three (3) entries in terms of votes, will receive a large “Pet of the Month” feature in the Michigan Humane 2020-21 Calendar (photo and short bio). See the “Prizes” section for additional prizes. If you are selected for one of these slots, you must be available for a photo shoot on August 7, 2019 at the Mackey Center for Animal Care in Detroit.
  • Second, the next top (40) entries in terms of votes, will be included in the Michigan Humane 2020-21 Calendar in a smaller format (photo only). See the “Prizes” section for additional prizes.
  • Please note: Due to a change in calendar format, only the winning photo entries as described above and meeting the “Photo Requirements/Guidelines” below will be included in the Michigan Humane 2020 Calendar.
