American Kennel Club Dog Photo Contest 2015

Open to residents of the USA.


Think your dog has that certain "star quality"? Are you an accomplished shutterbug (or aspiring to be one)? Then we invite you to enter. It can be an elegant portrait, a lively action shot, or just an image of your dog expressing himself -- creativity, quality, and originality are the only parameters. Well, there are a few rules, too (see below). So start snapping!


First Place $500

Second Place $250

Third Place $150


Open to residents of the USA.
