Dex The Halls 2020 Holiday Dog Photo Contest

It’s time for the annual Fidose of Reality Holiday Dog Photo Contest with ten prize packs to be awarded to ten winners. All dogs are welcome to participate in the holiday dog photo contest and each entrant is allowed to send four photos per person! The contest is now officially closed and winners will be announced in a separate post on 12/23/20.

Our annual Dex the Halls Holiday Dog Photo Contest is designed to get you and your dogs into the spirit of the season. By holiday we mean images that exemplify the spirit of the holidays between Thanksgiving and New Year’s. 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.

Entering is easy, prizes are plentiful, and all dogs are welcomed: past and present. Four entries per person are allowed. This means no more than four pictures per person. You must own the photo(s) and please do not have any text on the photo at all. No humans are allowed in the photos, so please don’t be a part of the image. Santa is allowed, and so is Mrs. Claus, of course. Watermarks on photos are okay. Photos with humans or text on them will be disqualified.

The deadline to submit entries through the form below is Tuesday, December 22, 2020, at 11:59 AM ET. All photos will be sent to our judges for consideration and will be narrowed to the 10 top entries. Here’s how to enter your dog in our 2020 Dex the Halls holiday dog photo contest:

How Are Dog Photos Judged?

Fidose of Reality’s panel of three judges will pick TEN winners who exemplify the holiday spirit, as discussed above. No categories, just a holiday theme. The dog(s) in the photos must belong to you. Do not put a dog in harm’s way. 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 the winners contest.

Judges look at the following: 50% adhering to contest theme, 25% clarity and following rules, 25% originality/catching the judges eye.

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. Santa and Mrs. Claus are allowed.

Can My Dog’s Friends And Family Enter?

Sure! The more the merrier. We love to see tails wagging here at Fidose of Reality, so spread the word and make your voice heard. FOUR entries per person, please. Additional entries beyond the first four will be disqualified.
