Submit your best pet photos for the chance to win recognition, great prizes, and help shelter animals at the same time! Past winners have included almost every type of photo imaginable—from candid moments of dogs romping on the beach to classic portraits of kittens and puppies.

All winners will be featured in the Oregon Humane Society's quarterly magazine, as well as on the OHS website and on Pro Photo Supply’s Facebook page. Winners also get a framed print of their winning entry courtesy of Pro Photo Supply and Beard's Framing. Submission deadline is August 17, 2014. Winners will be announced in late August 2014.


All entrants will be emailed a coupon for 25% off at Beard's Framing stores following the completion of the contest in late August. Visit Beard’s Framing stores for coupon details.
