Guide Dogs of America|Tender Loving Canines (GDA|TLC) invite you to enter our PAWSitivity Photo Contest! This year's theme is "Going Places." Please submit a photo of your dog at their favorite place. Include where it is and why it's so special. Landscape-oriented photos are preferred, but we will accept portrait-oriented photos so everyone can participate. Most votes per category wins a spot in the GDA|TLC 2022 calendar while helping raise funds for our mission, "Transforming lives through partnerships with service dogs."
The contest will be open for submissions and voting starting Friday, August 27, 2021, at 8:00 AM, PST through Friday, September 17, 2021, at 9:00 PM, PST. The contest is open to everyone. You can submit as many entries as you want, provided you pay the $10 entry fee for each photo. Winners are determined by the number of votes. Votes cost $1 each, and there's no limit on how many times people can vote.
Still have questions? Please read the RULES section of this website for a complete list of the contest rules, as well as answers to many of the most frequently asked questions about photo submissions.
* Please note: photos will not be approved if they feature dogs in vests, coats, or scarves from other service dog schools or organizations. No humans in the photos please.
**In order to be considered for inclusion in the GDA|TLC calendar, a high-resolution landscape-oriented digital file of the winning photo must be submitted to GDA|TLC at the close of the contest. Portrait-oriented photos will be accepted, however, if for some reason the winning photo does not meet the calendar requirements, GDA|TLC will work with the winner to highlight the photo in another GDA/TLC channel, and/or arrange to use a different photo of the same dog(s) that would meet the criteria.
