Dex the Halls Dog Holiday Photo Contest Winners 2015

The Fifth Annual Fidose of Reality Dex the Halls Holiday Dog Photo Contest with over $700 in prizes has come to a close. This is the first year we had a special cat-egory, literally: In the spirit of the giving season, felines had their own special category. From dogs playing with toys to puppies on Santa’s lap, one thing’s for sure: Dogs are family and we include them in all our holiday traditions. The time is  now to announce the winners of the 2015 Dex the Halls Dog (and Cat) Holiday Photo Contest!

Dog holiday photo contest

Our judges consist of three people who are not associated with the contest or the blog in any way so that we have an independent panel doing their part to judge. All pets are winners, so give your babies a hug from us.  We thank every single one of our entrants for sending in photos, and we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Thanks to all sponsors and your prizes will be sent in January. Remember, the winning photos were based on photos that best exemplify the spirit of the holidays this time of year (examples: Hanukkah, Christmas, New Years, snowy days, etc).

 What are we judged on? Fidose of Reality will pick TWO GRAND PRIZE WINNERS who best exemplify the spirit of the holidays that occur between now and the end of the year (examples: Hanukkah, Christmas, New Years, snowy days, etc).

We will also select THE other winners who will receive a prize based on the same criteria. One cat will win a cat prize from NipandBones.com

 Prizes will ship out in January so you can start the year off right!
