Welcome to the Alaska Pets Photo Contest

Thank you for supporting the animals in the Gastineau Humane Society's shelter by entering photos of your Alaskan pet and voting for the photos you like best.  Help us raise funds for our shelter and help your favorite pet become one of the Alaska Pets 2019 calendar winners! Please ask your friends and family to vote too.

~Good luck and have fun! 


Entering Your Photos

  1. To enter your photos click 'Enter Contest', create an account, or login with your existing account. (Your contact information is for the Gastineau Humane Society's use only).  
  2. Submit your favorite landscape/horizontal Alaska pet photos. NOTE: No vertical/portrait photos and no people in the photos
  3. There is a $5 entry fee, per photo.
  4. Photos from all seasons of the year are encouraged

All photos and votes must be submitted by 8:00 pm AKDT on Monday, September 24, 2018. 

Eligible Photos

  1. Photos submitted for the contest must be landscape (horizontal) , high quality (300 dpi minimum), or 2400 X 3000 pixels, JPEG (JPG) images, so that they will produce nice looking 8x10 images for the calendar. The Gastineau Humane Society and 360 Photo reserve the right to edit or crop winning entries to ensure a proper fit for the printed calendar.
  2. Photos may NOT contain people. If a winning photo features a person, the next highest winning entry will be chosen to replace it in the calendar.
  3. By submitting your photo you certify that you own the copyright to the picture and that you agree to grant the Gastineau Humane Society nonexclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, perpetual and irrevocable right and license to copy, reproduce, publish in any media, distribute and display all submitted photos, images and text. All submitted photos are subject to review by the Gastineau Humane Society for inappropriate/offensive content. Incomplete and/or inaccurate entries and entries not complying with all rules are subject to disqualification. These entries will not be permitted and there will be no refunds.
  4. Calendar Contest winners may be asked to re-submit their photos once the contest has ended. If an original landscape photo is not available in a high enough resolution and large enough for quality calendar printing, the Gastineau Humane Society will have to default to the next highest winning entry.
