Free Contest Rules & Entries


1.You can vote 1 time Per 12 hours, This means if you vote at 2pm then you will not be able to vote again until 2am the following morning. Not before

2. NEW RULE EFFECTIVE SEPTEMBER 2005: We DO NOT allow the use of vote exchange boards. This can lead to disqualification of your pet from the contest.. It is ridiculous to see one pet get hundreds of votes in a matter of a days when other pets get very little votes.. Please know that someone will email me and tell me if they see this happening so just don't do it.

3.There are no real prizes awarded in this contest. 1st place winners will have their photos posted up in our winners galleries and will receive a graphic award, 2nd place through 4th place can get a graphic award upon request.


1.You can send in as many pet photos as you wish as long as they are of different pets. If you enter 2 of the same pet, one photo will be entered and possibly the 2nd photo will be held onto for a future contest

2.Photos must be of good clear quality, if photos are blurry or are framed or have writing on them , they may not be entered. Our contests fill up fast and don't want to waste space on poor photos..

3.Photos must be no smaller then 250X187 pixels or 187X250 Pixels in size.. If they are any smaller then they may not be entered. Do not send photos that were taken on a cell phone, these picture are extremly small and can not be resized to fit properly into the contest with out degrading the quality. Also not send photos that have been cropped in a matter that does not allow them to fit in the 250X187 slot on the contest page, these entries will not be entered.... please try to downsize your photos when sending them so that they do not take up all of my email space. If you do not have a program to resize your photos you can still send them , i can resize them myself if necessary

4.Our contests do fill up several months in advance sometimes, so if you send a photo your pet most likely will not appear in our contest for at least a couple of months.

5.Pets Place does not claim any copyrights to your photos. however, if you send in your photos you are giving us permission to post your pets photos on our website for photo contests, winners galleries, breed profile pages and for banners are advertising for our site only. We will not sell your photos or distribute them to anyone. Please make sure you are ok with this before sending in your photos.

6.All photos need to be in .jpg , .gif , or , .bmp formats.. We do not accept zipped files and will discard your entry if sent in this format

7.Absolutely No people are allowed in the photos.. photos must be of animals only unless permitted for a theme contest

8.I have the right to crop or resize photos as i see fit for my website, this mean part of your photo may be cropped to fit the size that i need. I do appolize for this but we need photos to be a certain size to keep load times at a minimum

9. Once a photo is entered , it cannot be pulled from the contest. So if you think you may get mad if your pet loses or any other reason and may want your pet pulled, i suggest you not enter your pets photo in my contest. I do these contests for a fun way to show of your pets photos, i am appalled at how disgruntled some people are over a silly little pet contest.. . I will no longer be removing photos from the contest page once voting starts.. It is a pain for me to re-code everything and I hope you will understand..
