Important guidelines for submitting photos

Each year, a number of photos are disqualified from consideration because the image size is too small, the pet is not the focal point of the photo, or the images include humans. Following are some hints for choosing and submitting a winning photo:

  • Photos must be high resolution - at least 1MB.
  • Do not send directly from your phone. Image files are compressed by phones when they are emailed.
  • Upload your photo(s) to a computer or tablet before sending.
  • Attach the original high resolution image to the email (send as an attachment).
  • Pick a photo that will work with the shape of the calendar. Landscape is the best option.
  • Pick a photo where your pet is the focal point of the image.

Official Rules:

  1. Pets (and their humans) must live in Edmonton Strathcona.
  2. All pets are eligible.
  3. Photos must be in jpg or tiff format.
  4. Photos can include multiple pets (include info for all the pets in the photo).
  5. Photos cannot include humans.
  6. Only 1 photo per pet and no more than 3 photos per household may be submitted.
  7. Photos must be colour and at least 1MB in size.
  8. Deadline to submit is August 31, 2023
