How Are Dog Halloween Photos Judged?

Fidose of Reality’s panel of three judges will pick TEN winners who exemplify Halloween to the max. No categories, just Halloween theme and dog(s) 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.

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.
