Pet Photo Calendar Contest
The 2014 Contest
Mark your calendars! Registration for the 2014 Pet Photo Calendar Contest will open on June 1, 2013. Our Grand Prize includes a professional pet portrait seesion, a photo from which will be featured as the cover of our 2014 calendar.
Every year, the AWLA welcomes all pet owners and pet lovers to participate in this fun and meaningful outreach activity. Through our calendar, the AWLA gives pet owners a forum to highlight their best friends’ endearing moments, while also raising awareness and support for the thousands of companion animals who do not yet have a home and are cared for by the AWLA.
Last year, more than 80 pets competed for the coveted prize. Thanks to the support of our participants, sponsors, and retail partners, the contest and the sale of the 2013 calendar raised more than $45,000. These critical funds help to care for the homeless animals at the Vola Lawson Animal Shelter.
Sponsorship opportunities are still available. Contact Diana Cole, our Development Manager at DCole@AlexandriaAnimals.org or 703-746-5651 for additional information.
Please direct all media inquires regarding the contest to Patrick Cole, Director of Communications and Outreach, at 703-746-5655 or pcole@AlexandriaAnimals.org.
