For more than a decade, the Santa Fe New Mexican has honored our community's furry, feathered, scaled and bare-skinned two-and-four legged friends through the annual Pet Calendar. The 2020 calendar will be published and distributed October 27 in the Santa Fe New Mexican.
Photos of entrants accepted into the contest will be published on Friday, August 16 and round one of voting begins. Round one voting ends on September 8 at midnight. Voting tallies will be updated weekly on Fridays beginning August 23 through September 8. Round one is $1 per vote with a 5 vote minimum.
The Top 26 vote getters will then enter the second round of voting to narrow the field to 13 winners. The Top 26 will be revealed on Friday, September 13th and round two of voting begins. Voting tallies will be updated weekly on Fridays beginning September 13 through October 2. Round two is $2 per vote with a 5 vote minimum. Ten percent of the voting proceeds will be donated between this year's beneficiaries Santa Fe Animal Shelter and Felines and Friends.
The top vote getter will be featured on the calendar's cover with the other winners highlighting a specific month. The top 13 winners won't be revealed until the 2020 Pet Calendar pusblishes on Sunday, October 27, 2019.
The Santa Fe New Mexican is proud to work with an array of great sponsors dedicated to your pets. Due to their generosity, the top 25 prize winners will be receiving a special prize package and invitation to the annual Pet Awards, which is the Santa Fe New Mexican's way of supporting the pet community.
