- The Grand Prize winner and four runners-up (based on votes) will receive publication and special recognition in our opening spread.
Your pet will get top billing as the cover star AND be featured inside as a Pet-of-the-Month. If that isn't enough, your pet will also get recognition in the opening pages of the calendar!
The SPCA has teamed up with a professional photographer to award the first place winner with a professional photoshoot for their beloved pet.*
*A new color portrait will be taken by a professional photographer. The photograph will be taken in the Monterey Bay area prior to September 2022. It is this photograph that will become the calendar cover. If a photo is unable to be taken, it is the SPCA's option to consider a photo provided by the winner. The photo must meet the standards required for the cover of the calendar. If the provided photo does not meet standards, an alternative prize will be awarded.
- The winner will also receive a beautiful canvas print of a selected photo from the photoshoot.
- 25 copies of the 2023 Pet Calendar to share with your friends and family!
The top five vote earners will also earn special recognition of their photo and pet in the calendar.
