GRRIN Calendar Photo Contest!

It’s time to send us your photos! GRRIN’s calendar committee is putting together a fabulous 30th anniversary calendar for 2021 and they will need to choose from your photos.

Guidelines for Submission

Who is eligible?

We are accepting photos submitted by friends and supporters of GRRIN. It is not a requirement for the photograph to feature a GRRIN dog, however GRRIN dogs will have priority in the selection process. There is a limit of TWO (2) photos submitted per family, but should your photo be selected, only one will be used in the Calendar.

What is the deadline for submission of photos?

June 1, 2020

Will I get the photo returned to me after the selections are made?

ALL photos submitted become the property of Golden Retriever Rescue in Nebraska.  Make sure you make a copy before sending.

How can I submit my photos?

Complete the online form at the bottom of this web page and attach your photos.

What are the requirements for the photos?

1. Photos should be in color and in landscape orientation, with a preferred resolution of at least 1008 by 792 pixels (iPhone X or XI have 3264 x 2448 pixels resolution). Please indicate the device you used to take the photo and the resolution if you know. Avoid using the zoom function on your camera when taking the photos. This affects the resolution.

2. Please include the dog’s GRRIN # if applicable.

3. We need a 50-75 word story about the dog and how he or she became part of your family. If your dog is chosen to be in the calendar, we reserve the right to edit the stories for length and style.

4. Please do not have any people in the photo. We will make an exception if the photo is a Christmas depiction with Santa Claus.

5. Submit your photo(s) and the Calendar Photograph Entry Form/Release Form using one of the options outlined above.

Are there any fees for submission of my dog’s photo(s)?

There are no fees. However, if you would like to donate to offset the cost of the calendars, please send a check to GRRIN, PO Box 126, BoysTown, NE 68010. Indicate “Calendar” on the check. Or click here to make a donation, and make a note that it is for the calendar.
