How are the votes counted?
Donations made in support of the cause are valued at 1 vote for every $1.00 donated. The minimum donation is $5, which equals 5 votes. There may also be promotions where donors can get bonus votes. The contest platform will automatically tally votes as they come in. 

How do I win or get a spot in the calendar?
Fundraise to keep your dog in the top 12 of the leaderboard. Get your family and friends vote for your dog(s) in the contest. You can also vote for your own dog! It all supports the Operation Freedom Paws Service Dog Program. Each week of the contest, there are lots of fantastic prizes for top-voted dogs. The first twelve dogs with the most votes at contest end win a spot in the calendar. 

How do I change my entry photo?

My pet has passed away. May I still enter them?
Because each calendar winner will be photographed for the calendar by Pauliina Saarinen Photography, the winners have to be living dogs. You can honour your pet in memoriam by purchasing a date in the calendar grid for his/her photograph HERE

If I win a spot in the calendar, what happens next?
Pauliina will contact you soon after the contest is over to organize a complimentary session to photograph your winning dog for the calendar. If you would like to have more images taken or include more dogs or people, you can upgrade to a full photography session for $99.00. 

Where and when will the calendars be available for purchase?
The calendars will become available for purchase from Operation Freedom Paws Canada online store later in the year. Pauliina will keep you informed when they are hot off the press and ready to be ordered. 
Can I be disqualified?
Pauliina Saarinen Photography reserves the right to disqualify an entry based on objectionable content or depiction of the animal or persons in a photo.

When and where will winners be announced?
You'll receive the news regarding the contest to the e-mail address you provide with your entry information. Pauliina will keep you posted about prizes, weekly winners and what happens after the contest. Please expect to receive two e-mails per week during the competition.
