Congratulations to the Ross Family with their Guardian Angels photo for being chosen as the Grand Prize Winner in our Sleeps With Dogs (or Cats) Pet Photo Contest. There was a ton of competition but you managed to oversleep them all and come out the big winner! Your family will be awarded the Best Friends Sleep With Dogs Prize Package worth $1000. That includes a $250 gift certificate to use at any Best Friends Pet Care center or veterinary hospital, a $100 gift certificate to Bed Bath & Beyond, an Orvis Dog Proof Throw Blanket, a six month supply of Frontline Plus, and an array of other items!
We had so much fun watching all of the sleepy themed photos coming through to the contest over the last several weeks. So many of your entries were creative, spirited and absolutely adorable. It was a close race, but only the 25 photos with the most votes were eligible to move onto the final round where Best Friends appointed judges scored the photos and selected the Grand Prize Winner.
Each judge scored each of the top 25 photos based on the following categories:
- Sleep With Dogs (or Cats) Theme,
- Originality & Creativity,
- Cuteness factor,
- Picture Quality,
- Level of Promotion,
- How effectively the entry conveys the “Best Friends Spirit”,
- Pet’s Appearance/Photogenic Ability and
- Technical Requirements
There were a lot of great pets to choose from, and it was certainly close, but the Guardian Angels entry edged out the rest. Not to worry- the finalists are not going home empty handed. Each of the top 5 finalists will be getting a $50 gift certificate to use at any Best Friends Pet Care center or veterinary hospital along with a three month supply of Frontline Plus. The remaining 20 semifinalists will also receive a $20 gift certificate to use at any Best Friends Pet Care center or veterinary hospital. Now, just look at how cute these finalist and semifinalist photos were!
