For our second annual Top Dog Contest, presented by Prestige Subaru, we’re offering three chances to win! In addition to a photo contest, we’re offering a video category this year. And the Prestige Subaru Choice Award offers the opportunity to be a Prestige Subaru “spokesdog.” All canine entrants must reside (at least part-time) in Western North Carolina.
The Top Dog Photo Contest welcomes accomplished shutterbugs (or those aspiring to be) to enter their best canine photos. It can be a striking portrait, an image of your dog with his best friend (that’d surely be you!), or an action shot—creativity, quality, and originality are the only parameters.
The Top Dog Video Contest is a chance to share your pup’s funniest or finest moment caught on film. Videos should be short (1 minute or less).
Finalists will appear in the July/August issue of WNC magazine and it’s up to the public to decide who wins. Online voting will be held July 15-31, and the winners will be announced in the September/October issue. A $100 gift certificate and canine prize package, courtesy of Patton Avenue Pet Company, will go to the Top Dog Winner in each category.
For the Prestige Subaru Choice Award, representatives from Prestige Subaru will determine the Winner, who receives a prize package from Prestige and the chance to appear in a Prestige Subaru advertisement!
Deadline to Enter is May 1.
