PHOTO CONTEST RULES

We have all said our dog should be in pictures or a contestant on the next dog reality supermodel show!! Well here is your chance.

ARWNY would like to immortalize YOUR special Akita forever!! Yes, we are looking to find just the right 6 pictures to use on MUGS that will be sold through our online store and at our functions to help ARWNY raise funds for our rescue work. These mugs will forever picture YOUR wonderful, special Akita!

So to find just the right 6 pictures, we will be holding an ONLINE PICTURE CONTEST!!!

We are asking for Akita owners to submit pictures by email to ARWNY PHOTO CONTEST and pictures must be received NO LATER than April 18, 2009.

Keep the photos in a manageable size (under 1 mg) for us to use for the contest, later on we will need a bigger size if your photo is a winner!

When choosing your pictures to submit, remember they will be used on a mug, so make sure the picture is clear and easy to see.  And make sure the picture is yours to use and not copyrighted in any way. A photo release will be needed before any reproduction.

We are asking for $1.00 per entry. Voting will be free. ARWNY will tally up all the votes and voting will begin on   April 19th and end on April 24th. Winners will be announced April 25th.

Look for another announcement to start the voting.
Remember, here is your chance for YOUR special Akita to be in the "winners' circle" and be forever immortalized on a mug for all the world to "ooooooooooohhhhhhhhhh and aaaaaahhhhhhhhhh" over!!!  So get those pictures to us and when the time comes, get voting!
