and non-profit grants! We hope to see all of you next year for our "Coolest Pet in Mukilteo 2021"!
The "Coolest Pet in Mukilteo Contest" is open to anyone 18 years or older who would like to enter their pet to compete for the coveted title of "Mukilteo's Coolest Pet in 2020! "Pet" is defined as a canine or dog, feline or cat. In addition, a "unique" pet is an open category that can include any pet such as a bird, gecko, horse, goldfish, or any non-canine or feline that can be photographed and is a pet!
The contest is open to anyone within the city limits of Mukilteo, WA or anywhere in the universe. Our focus is Mukilteo, but pets from anywhere can enter. To participate, an entrant must submit a photo of their pet, and provide a few short sentences why their pet is the coolest of the cool. Photos should be digital, in focus and sharp enough to look good on the internet and show off the pet. Photos of pets only, no people. By submitting a photo, the pet owner is granting GoGo Photo Contest and the Mukilteo Kiwanis Foundation approval to post their pet photo(s) on the contest website, the website of the Mukilteo Kiwanis Foundation, the Mukilteo Beacon and Mukilteo Monthly. Unfortunately, we probably will not be able to schedule a formal contest celebration after its conclusion.
The entrance fee is $10 per pet submission. With payment of the submission fee, 10 votes are automatically awarded. If there are multiple pets in one family, separate photos of each pet must be entered, posted separately and the $10 submission fee paid for each. One pet per entry. Be sure to enter all of your critters!
