Last Call: The Hill is Home Pet Costume Contest

October 30th, 2012 by thehillishome · 2 Comments · Capitol Hill, DC

The 2011 Readers’ Choice Award winner, “Cowgirl.”

You’ve picked up the candy, carved out a pumpkin, but don’t forget to dress-up your pet tonight and send us a picture!

Only a few can lay claim that their pet is top dog (or cat) in The Hill is Home’s pet costume contest.

Just snap a picture and email it to THIHcontest@gmail.com. Be sure to include your contacts, along with a title for the photo caption. Two prizes will be awarded this year:

  • Least-Like-the-Species Award (selected by THIH editors): Think your critter’s costume completely hides his or her dog-ness, cat-ness, or hamster-ness? Win a selection of treats and a $25 gift card to Metro Mutts.
  • Readers’ Choice Award: THIH readers vote for their favorite collective entry, and for that trick you’ll be rewarded with a $50 gift card to Metro Mutts.

Readers will be able to vote for their favorite photo Nov. 5th-9th. Winners will be announced here on Monday, Nov. 12th.

And, as always, please ready the fine print before sending us your entry.

The Fine Print…

Photos must be emailed to the official THIH photo contest address (THIH contest at gmail.com) no later than Nov. 2, 2011. Each submission should be provided in .JPG or .TIF format, no larger than 1 MB, and should be accompanied by the photographer’s name, email address, phone number, and mailing address. Only one photo entry per pet. You do not have to live on Capitol Hill to enter.

All judging decisions are final. Photos submitted to the contest will be added to the The Hill Is Home Flickr Pool. THIH reserves the right to use photos submitted in future posts on the website.

By submitting a photo entry, the submitter asserts the submitted photo is his or her own work and that it bears no copyright.  THIH staff and immediate family members are not eligible for this contest.  THIH encourages free speech and dialogue. Photos containing questionable subject matter will be disqualified.
