THERE’S STILL TIME TO ENTER YOUR PET IN
THE SHELTER’S PHOTO CONTEST!
GREAT FALLS, Montana –The Great Falls Animal Shelter is sponsoring a Pet Photo Contest and is on the lookout for the best looking pets around! Thirty-four local pet owners have already submitted photos and are vying for a spot in the 2014 full-size, color Shelter Calendar. The photo contest ends at midnight on Tuesday, September 3, so there’s still time to enter and vote! All proceeds from the calendar fundraiser will go towards the Shelter Adoption Fund. Go to http://gbcphotocontest.com/greatfallsanimalshelter/ for more information about the contest and view submitted photos.
Entering the Pet Photo Contest is easy. Once you have selected your favorite photo, just upload it at http://gbcphotocontest.com/greatfallsanimalshelter/. The first photo entry costs $10, and includes a free 2014 calendar (all additional photo entries are $5). Contestants must have permission to use or submit photos.
Once your photo is uploaded, don’t forget to vote! The top 12 photos will be included in the calendar. So encourage your friends and family members to get online and vote! Right now the top vote getters have between 73 and 30 votes. Everyone is encouraged to be part of the fun and help design the Shelter calendar (even if they haven’t submitted a photo!).
Voting is easy and only costs $1. Scroll through the submitted photos and once you’ve found the photo(s) you want to vote for, just click on the “Donate to Vote” button. Users will then be asked to set up an account with the site. Returning users, with an established account, can use the “Login to Vote” button.
