When does it start and end? The contest starts now. The contest ends on 10/27/15 at 11:59 p.m. EST. Fidose of Reality staff and their families are not eligible to win in the Halloween Dog Photo Contest.

What are we judged on? Fidose of Reality will pick EIGHT winners and five runners up who exemplify Halloween to the max. No categories, just Halloween theme and dog must be yours and dressed in Halloween gear without putting the dog in harm’s way. Don’t make your dog dress up if he doesn’t want to, please. Dogs who don’t like to dress up can wear a fun collar and leash or bandana and be entered. Or they can be pictured in a lovely Halloween scene. We will have five runners up who will receive a Fidose of Reality goodie.

So that means eight prize winners and five runners up for a total of 13 winners!!! This is always one of our biggest contests. We don’t ask for LIKES or votes and this is a good old fashioned judges pick photo contest.

  2. I love the cockers dressed as the Vicars of Christ! Oh My Dogs! That is one bonus photo! My girls are shooting their Hallow’s Eve pics next week. It will be great!

  3. What a fun contest! My dog is 14 years old and he gets a little testy when anyone messes with him so I’m not thinking I’d have much luck dressing him up.

  4. Oh, this looks like fun and the prizes are amazing! I’m glad I don’t have to be a judge! People are so creative! I’m lucky if I get a tacky scarf on my dogs for Halloween!

  5. I don;t usually dress the boys up for Halloween (but I do for every other holiday). That’s messed up, isn’t it? ☺ I can’t wait to see the entries on your social media, though! Those scuba hounds up there are killing me!

  6. What’s more fun for Halloween than dressing up? Oh, maybe seeing other dogs dress up too! Love the costumes you have featured … they are great! Hope to see lots of amazing costumes showing up for your contest. Pet parents sometimes are more inventive and get into it more than some children’s parents! My mom thinks I look adorable in somethings that I just feel silly in! Trick or Treat … Oh, treats that’s a good idea! Yum!
