2016 PWD Calendar Contest

2016 MOVERS AND SHAKERS CALENDAR CONTEST

 

In 2014, Movers and Shakers produced a calendar with a central theme, Spirit of the Portuguese Water Dog.  For the year 2016, Movers and Shakers will produce another calendar.  Living in the social media age, we would like to focus (pun intended) on “selfies of you and your PWD”.  The picture doesn’t have to be a true selfie which means a photograph taken of oneself, typically with a smartphone and shared via social media.   The picture can be 1.) one with you and your PWD equally as the focal point OR 2.) the picture can  be any picture of you and your PWD having fun and sharing a moment. It doesn’t have to be a picture full of activity.  All ages in your dogs cycle of life are accepted (both dog/puppy and owner/handler.  Be creative.  Most contests will want the dog to be the focal point.  We would like for the moment to be the focal point, an expanded selfie of you and your dog.   If you have a really great picture of your dog sans no one---not even you-----you are welcome to submit that. 

HERE ARE ALL THE GUIDELINES TO HELP YOU WITH THE CONTEST

In order to get the best quality pictures for the calendar, please follow the following:  1.) Submit photos as jpegs.  2.) Do not resize your photographs.  Submit the originals.  3.) Submit your photos at high resolution   4.)  Use the landscape orientation for photos.  In other words, pictures should fit an 8 1/2 x 11 landscape calendar page. It is not pretty fitting a vertical image to the page without turning the picture on its side.  5.)  Neither show photos nor water trial photos of PWDs performing water exercises are accepted.  6.) Photographs should be in focus. 7.) If you use a photograph taken by a professional photographer, you must have written permission from the photographer to use the photo for the calendar.

Send your pictures using the above guidelines to Jennifer Wenk at jmwenk@jenniferwenk.com. They will be posted to the website------moversandshakers.org.  The deadline for entries is Saturday, July 4th.  The 2016 calendar will be available for the Southern Splash Water Trial in July and at other activities during the remainder of the year.
