Any chance of breaking the contestants down into categories before the final vote? I know it would be more work for those running the contest. It's just a minor quibble, but last year I think we ended up with three separate pictures of a Corgi in a field of flowers in the calendar, and not a single winter scene.

Don't get me wrong, all the pics of Corgis in flower fields were very good pictures, and the owners/photographers did a great job. A winter picture would be nice, though.
We'll see :) We've added photo tip no.2 for that reason.

On a side note: John's snowy winter photos have made it two years in a row! Someone need to give Gwynni and Al some competition :)

We had an overwhelming number floral and studio backdrop photos submitted last year, a lot of them did not make it to the finals because:

1. Too many photos with the same theme
2. Same glamor shots studio pose
3. Resolution too low, not qualified for commercial printing
what is photo tip no. 2 ? And as far as a winter scene i have a really good one i could send but i have already enterd a photo, am i allowed to send the winter scene also?
Photo tip 2 is exactly what's printed above: Have a month / season / theme in mind

Strategically submit a photo with the maximum opportunity to be published.

Since you already submitted, submission rule #1 prevents you from submitting a second one :( Sorry.
aww bummer, oh well maybe next year
So we only have 4 days to get the pictures in?
yes
If my dogs photo ends up being selected for the calender, do we get a free copy?
no :(
Just think of all the money you can donate to a good cause!!!!!
The link to the calendar won't work for me!
The 2011 calendar does not exist yet, we are taking photos submission at the moment.
