Contest has ended.
Contest begins May 9th, 2014 at 8:00 am (CDT) and runs through June 8th, 2014 at 10:00 pm (CDT).
It is FREE to submit a photo!
Photo entries must be of an English Setter or English Setter mix. Your entry does NOT have to be a rescue dog. We LOVE all English Setters and welcome entries from all English Setter lovers.
To enter the contest you will submit a photo of your dog(s), provide their name, your name and address, and a short paragraph (250 words or less) that tells voters something fun or interesting about the dog in the photo. Is this a rescue dog? If so, how long has he or she been a part of your family? Can you share something special that we could include on our calendar if your photo wins?
Voting is open to everyone. Votes are $1 each. Each dollar donated equals an equivalent number of votes that are placed in the donor’s “vote bank”. A $5.00 donation equals 5 votes, a $10 donation equals 10 votes, etc. A minimum donation of $5 is required. You then take the votes in your vote bank and use them to vote on one photo entry, or spread them across your favorite photos.
If you submit a photo to the contest, you can email links to your family and friends to encourage voting for your photo. On your pet's public page, there is a "share" button that allows you to share your entry through Facebook and other social networking sites. Ask all of your friends and family to vote for your favorite photo and Share! Share! Share!
Photos should be horizontal (wider than they are tall) and may contain more than one pet; at least one dog in the photo should be an English Setter. No people in the photos, please.
Important: Digital photos only. Photos must be in color, clear, of good quality and high resolution, and able to be printed at a size of 8.5" x 11" without significant loss of quality. If your submission is low resolution or poor quality you will be asked for a better quality image.
SWESR reserves the right to disqualify at any time any photo it determines to be unsuitable.
Contest votes are tax deductible. The email acknowledgment to your online donation serves as your tax receipt. Mailed paper receipts can be requested by emailing
