2014 Lucky Fiona Calendar Contest to benefit OESR

Lucky Fiona 2014 Calendar Contest

It's that time again! We get so many wonderful photos of your pooches in their Lucky Fiona creations we know there is an awesome calendar in the making! So let's create a 2014 calendar shall we? (and help a wonderful rescue along the way)
All $5 photo entries will be donated to Our English Setter Rescue which you all know is near and dear to the Head Bitch's heart. 

How to enter:
Purchase an entry and submit your photo to One photo per entry please. Attach a cut and paste copy of purchased entry or simply an invoice number to photo when emailing. Be sure to include your name, email, the dog in photo and their breed and age. Put CALENDAR SUBMISSION in title line of email. Don't forget to attach the pic! 
Received entries with paid donations will be listed on the Lucky Fiona Flickr site

The 12 photos with the most individual comments will win a place in the 2014 calendar. *Comments must be from different individuals - so don't have the same 5 friends post comments daily to rack up the numbers! Pogue is onto that game and won't allow it. So don't try to cheat! 
Contest runs Wednesday November 27th through Friday December 6th at midnight. Calendar winners announced Saturday December 7th and calendars will be on sale for pre-order December 8th. 

Suggestions and rules I make every year that will be ignored! 

* Be sure the collar can be seen in the photo. It doesn't have to be the star (your dog is!) but it must be somewhat visible. Don't submit photos of dogs in other manufacturer's collars. I say this every year but it happens without fail. This is the Lucky Fiona Calendar contest. Those other collars can have their own dang photo calendar contest! So there. 
* LARGE format photos only. Those little bitty file photos will not reproduce when we go to get the calendar's printed without being all pixelated. We have had issues in the past where a photo wins and then we can't include it due to poor resolution. So big, big, big files. If taking a photo from your camera phone be sure it is on the largest possible file setting.
* Natural light photos with minimal distractions in the photo are always crowd pleasers. Not that I don't enjoy seeing that laundry basket behind your labrador (makes me feel like I am not the only one with laundry all over)but remember we want a clean and professional quality calendar. This will be sitting in people's work offices. Do you really want your dirty socks seen there?
* Sure people in the photo are allowed. But are they wearing a Lucky Fiona collar? 
* Have questions? Ask before entry at
