Judges Choice (1 Winner):
One entry, independent of vote count, will be chosen by our judges for inclusion in the calendar. This winner will be part of a specially arranged mini photoshoot* by Bethany Melvin Photography where the pet will be featured as the main photo in one month of the calendar, and a SFAHS reusable shopping bag.

*Photoshoots are to be scheduled September 7th - October 2nd (weekdays only between 7:30am-3:00 pm). If you are not available during those times or cannot make other arrangements with Bethany at bethanyb@sfhumanesociety.com . If you cannot come in for a photo, we will use the photo you provided or ask you to provide another suitable photo. The final photos and month assignments (except for the Top Winner who chooses their month) in the calendar will be chosen by the photographer and SFAHS. Mini Photo Sessions will last 5-10 minutes and will take place outdoors, except for cats. No props or costumes will be provided. You must be in the Sioux Falls Area, or willing to travel to Sioux Falls for your photos, at no expense to the SFAHS. You will receive (1) digital copy of the photo that appears in the calendar. No other photos are guaranteed or promised. 1 pet per entry preferred. We cannot guarantee placement in the calendar should you enter a pet that is over the rainbow bridge, due to not being able to fulfill the photo session portrait. We cannot guarantee all pets will be featured in the final month photo if you win, especially if they are different species (ex. cat and a dog).
