2012 Corgis (with blogs) Calendar Contest!

I've been waiting to announce this.. but I just noticed that I now have over 1000 followers on Facebook!  So, here's a special treat for you all! :)

I am now accepting entries to this years calendar contest! The only requirement is that you have a corgi & a blog (that hopefully is about or features your corgi more often than not). The goal of this project is to show love for our corgis, help promote each others blogs, and to raise money for corgi rescue! We were able to donate $500 last year, which was $200 more than the first year. I'm hoping to follow that trend and am shooting for $750 this year!! :)

The Details
  • Each month will feature a corgi's photo, it's name, your blog name & web address!
  • 100% of the profits will be donated to the Lakeshore Corgi Rescue.
  • Winners will receive a free digital version of the calendar.
  • I would like to feature a different corgi/blog every month, but the most important thing is to have high quality images, so it is possible that a corgi may be featured more than once.
  • The calendar will be ready to go for the holiday shopping season!
Submission Guidelines
  • All entries should be emailed to ksteck23(at) - replace (at) with the @ symbol - no later than August 25, 2011.  30 finalists will be chosen at this date and will be put to the public vote.  Winners will be announced on September 1st!
  • You must have a blog that features your corgi.
  • Only 3 entries per person, please!
  • When you submit your entries, please include your dog's name and your blog's name & web address.
  • Please send the original sized version of your photos (high resolution).  They should be at least 11.25" wide and 8.75" high at at least 150dpi to ensure the highest quality calendar.
  • Photos received may be cropped and resized and edited to fit specific calendar sizes and guidelines.
  • You will retain the rights to your own photos, and can still submit them to any other contest, sell them, or use them however else you like!
Photo Tips
  • Photos w/just corgis (no humans) will be more likely to get accepted.
  • Photos can be from previous years if they are your best photos.
  • Outdoor and season specific shots always work well!
  • There can be multiple corgis per photo submission.
  • Pembrokes, Cardigans AND Corgi Mixes are all acceptable.
  • View our Corgis of the Month so far for tips on submitting great photos geared towards each month!

So there you have it! Let me know if you have any questions. I hope to see some awesome photos soon! Please spread the word!! :)  Remember, if you don't have a blog and would like to participate, enter the Corgi Butts & Friends Calendar Contest!!! :)
