Calling all cats and dogs, birds and bunnies, bearded dragons and tropical fish—we want to see your photo! You (or someone who loves you) can enter your most fabulous photo in New Jersey Monthly’s inaugural Cutest Pet Photo Contest sponsored by Red Bank Veterinary Hospitals™. All entrants will receive:
• A digital faux New Jersey Monthly “Cutest Pet” cover with the pet’s image and name. (See sample above.)
• A feature in the New Jersey Monthly “Cutest Pet Contest” online photo gallery.
Ten finalists will be chosen from the photo gallery based on a vote by njmonthly.com readers. A panel of pet and photography experts will choose the winning pet’s photo from the 10 finalists and two editor’s picks. The winning photo will be judged based on several criteria, including appeal of the pet, and quality and originality of the photo. The winning pet will receive:
• A full-page photo and bio in the May 2020 issue of New Jersey Monthly.
• A professional New Jersey Monthly photo shoot (you keep the photos).
Deadline to enter is noon, Friday, February 14. Public voting on the website will run February 19-28. Entry fee: $30. New Jersey Monthly will donate a portion of each entry fee to benefit the Mt. Pleasant Animal Shelter.
