2012 Calendar Photo Call for Entries

Wilbur - Our inspiration and mascot

The Road Dogs and Furiends are pleased to announce the First Call for Entries for photos of Pitties in Frog Pose. Are you a Pittie who loves to relax in frog pose?  YOU could be featured in our 2012 calendar – Pit Bull Frogs (or a name to be determined later)!  So get out your camera and have someone take an awesome high-resolution (300 dpi or 2400 x 3000 pixels) photo of you striking a frog pose. 

In addition to your great photo, we want your special rescue/adoption story, too!   Include a short paragraph about how you were adopted or rescued.

The proceeds generated from the sale of the calendar and from any associated voting contests will help support organizations that benefit pitties by rescuing, rehabilitating, adopting, fostering, providing medical care, training and educating the public, like Bad Rap.  

Here's all you need to know about submitting your photos (there's lots of words here and might get boring, but please read everything before submitting your photos).  If you have any questions, please email us.  Now on to the info:

Photo Submission Guidelines

• Photos must include at least one Pittie doing the frog pose.  All Pitties in the photo should be in frog pose.  Sorry, no people this time, not even people doing frog pose.  We will consider photos of Pitties in a frog costume, also, because that’s kind of a frog pose and we know some Pitties that LOVE their frog costumes!  If you’re doing the frog pose IN a frog costume – AWESOME! – as long as you love being in it.  We don’t want anyone tormented for the sake of a photo. 

• High-resolution digital Images only (minimum 300 dpi – 2400 x 3000 pixels).  Horizontal (landscape) shots are preferred, if possible. Send original files only (.jpg or .tif), do not crop or reduce size for email.  We reserve the right to crop photos for best layout.  No scanned or cell phone photos, please.

All photos must be the original work of the entrant and entrant must own the copyright to the photograph.  If you took the photo, you own the copyright, simple as that.
