2015 OHS Photo Contest Opens

If you are like many pet owners, you consider your pet a star—and you have the photos to prove it! It’s time to enter those photos in the 24th annual OHS Fuzzy, Feathered and Furry Friends Photo Contest.


Calling All Animal Photographers

The rules are simple, the prizes grand, and all entry fees go to help the pets at OHS. Photos can be submitted of any companion animal, not just those adopted from OHS.

One lucky entry will grace the cover of the OHS Magazine, and winners in each category will be featured inside this fall’s issue (published in October). A $500 gift card to Pro Photo Supply will be awarded to the Grand Prize winner, as well as a $250 gift card from Frame Central.

Photo Submissions

When submitting your photo, think of which category that it has the best chance of winning: Best Dog, Best Cat, Best Other Animal (any pet that isn’t a cat or dog!), Funniest Photo, Child with Pet, Me & My Pet (adult with pet) and Dog & Cat Couple (cat and dog hanging out together).

The Grand Prize winner and the Editor’s Choice awards are selected by the judges from any of the categories. See a list of prizes for each category below.

Deadline and Entry Fees

The deadline for submitting entries is August 16. There is a $10 fee for the first five photos submitted.
