Dex the Halls because it’s time for our 12th annual Holiday Dog Photo Contest. We are upping the “bark” this holiday season with even more prizes, more goodies, more entries allowed, and more doggone, tail-wagging fun.

Our annual holiday dog photo contest is super easy to enter, but you must follow a few simple rules.

That includes dog photos for Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Christmas, Thanksgiving, snow days, Santa and me, New Year’s Eve photos, and anything that says “holiday” in your household. However, no humans can be featured in any of the photos.

The rules and how to enter are below. All dog photos are welcomed: past and present. This holiday season, FIVE entries per person are allowed: This means no more than FIVE pictures per person.

How Are The Holiday Dog Photos Judged?

Fidose of Reality’s panel of three judges will pick TWELVE winners in the spirit of the holidays plus FIVE runners up. I am not one of the judges.

There are no categories, just a holiday them. By holiday that means photos that exemplify the spirit of the holidays between Thanksgiving and New Year’s. Some examples are dog photos for Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Christmas, Thanksgiving, snow days, Santa and me, New Year’s Eve photos, and anything that says “holiday” in your household. However, no humans can be featured in any of the photos.

The dog or dogs in the photos must be your dogs.

This is always one of our biggest contests. We don’t ask for LIKES or votes and this is a fun old-fashioned photo contest. Judges will choose the winners. I do not.

Will There Be Places or Categories?

There will be no first, second, third, etc, place this time. Winners will be paired up with one of the prizes from our amazing sponsors. You can see all of the prizes below.

Can I Alter Or Photoshop My Photos In Any Way?

No photoshopping, please. Any photoshopped photos will be disqualified. We want originality! You can watermark but that’s it. DO NOT SEND PHOTOS WITH TEXT ON THEM NOR PHOTOS WITH PEOPLE IN THEM. A WATERMARK IS OKAY, BUT ANY PHOTOS WITH TEXT ON THEM WILL BE OTHERWISE DISQUALIFIED.

Can Humans Be In the Photo?

No, there can be NO humans in the photo. Any photos that include people, whether or adults or kids, will be disqualified.
