Weimaraner Rescue of Texas is excited to present our 2019 Calendar Photo Contest!
We know our Weimaraners are super photogenic and full of crazy antics, so let's make them calendar stars! Submit your best Weimaraner Rescue of Texas alumni (or current foster) photos for a chance to be in our 2019 calendar. Next, share with your family and friends, and get them to vote for your Weim to be a star in our calendar! Each vote costs $1, and all proceeds will go towards caring for rescued WRT Weimaraners.
The 25 photos with the most votes will appear in the calendar as detailed below. Each will also get a complimentary calendar and will be highlighted on our Facebook page during their featured month.

Photos Submission FAQ's
What dogs are allowed?
Photos are required to have at least one WRT alumni or foster. If you have a photo with multiple dogs, please make sure the WRT alumni or foster is the main focus of the photo. No humans, please.
What photos are not allowed?
Photos with humans are not allowed. No photos of dogs with red or glowing eyes will be approved. Also, photos should not show any potentially offensive type collars, including shock, prong or choke collars.
Can I submit a photo in black & white or sepia toned? Or must all photos be in color?
You may submit either black & white, sepia toned, or color.
What quality of photo must I submit to ensure it will be good enough for the calendar?
Photos must be at least 200dpi. Photos of lesser resolution may result in a photo that can't be resized for the calendar. If you have any concerns, doubts, or would like to have confirmation that your photos are an appropriate size, please send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Does WRT need the rights to my photos?
Yes, and when you submit your photos in the 2019 Weimaraner Rescue of Texas Calendar Photo Contest, the photos become the property of WRT, and WRT reserves the rights to edit the photos as necessary.
What about professional photos or photos taken by others?
You must own the rights to your photos in order to submit in the contest. If you have professional photos or photos taken by others, you must have authorization in writing from the rights owner. Said authorization will need to be submitted upon request.
