WHAT IS IT?
Every year around fall and Christmas, we will have a photo shoot and send out cards for the holidays. It was a way to engage with the community outside of social media and the newsletter.
This year, I wanted to do something different. Something that would truly engage our whole community while also celebrating all the grand dogs in our lives!
If there is something I know about the people here is that they LOVE to share photos of their dogs. You folx are always sending emails with pictures of your dogs, and we love every single one of them. It brings a smile to our faces and we know we are not alone in that joy of seeing the wonderful pups in everyone's life.
In addition to celebrating our community, we want to give back to our community. More on this below.
This year are hosting a photo contest on social media (Instagram and Facebook). We are asking you to post your favourite photos of your grand dogs tagging #GrandDogsof2024 and @granddogessentials.
ENTRY DETAILS AND LINKS SHARED BELOW.
**PHOTO SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW CLOSED**
Photo submissions will be open October 12 - 27, 2023. Once the submission process is complete, there will be an opportunity to vote for your favourites.
The voting will be for the top 12 photos which will be included in our first ever Grand Dogs of 2024 calendar. This calendar will be available for sale on our website from December to January.
One hundred percent of the proceeds from the sale of the calendars will be donated to Parachute for Pets.
