Pet Photo Contest 2010

Back by popular demand, it’s the Ligonier Valley Library Summer Pet Photo Contest! Don’t miss your chance to show off your pet and maybe win a prize while helping the library raise funds for operations.

Photos will be accepted at the library from June 7 until June 30. The photos will be displayed in the library and people can vote for their favorites from July 1 to August 7. The winners will be announced on August 10.

Entry forms and contest rules can be picked up at the library and will soon be posted on our web page at

The entry fee per photo is $1.00. Limit is two pets per photo and one entry per pet. No humans or deceased pets in photos please. Submitted photos can be either in color or black & white. They must be printed on high quality photo paper and unframed. Minimum size is 3” x 5” and maximum size is 5” x 7”. All entrees become the property of the Ligonier Valley Library and will not be returned at the end of the contest. Make sure that you have a copy before submitting your photo.

Pets are not limited to dogs and cats. Former contestants included a donkey, a turtle, numerous guinea pigs and hamsters, several lizards, a gold fish and even a tarantula.

While the photos are being displayed, people can vote for their favorites. Each vote is 25¢ and you may vote as many times and for as many pets as you wish. Ballots can be purchased at the library’s circulation desk. One lucky pet receiving the highest total votes will win the grand prize. The top two runners up will also receive prizes.
