Last week I was contacted by Picmonkey.com about a Halloween Photo Contest they are presenting along with a company called Rover.com. The name of the contest: #FrankenPet. How cute is that!?
Rover.com is a nationwide network of dog lovers that connects pet parents with loving, local dog sitters. PicMonkey is the website I use for editing photos. They have a ton of editing options available, from highlighting to text to adding graphics or overlays. I use them for all the photos I share with you.
So let’s talk about this contest! (Read on their site, instead) They want you to take a photo of your pet (in costume or not) and spice up the picture with their Halloween features. There are three winner categories: Creepy Canines, Scaredy Cats and Other Beasts. You photos can be scary, silly or cute.
Share your picture with the tag #frankenpet on Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Google+, Flickr, and/or Facebook. (For PicMonkey to see your picture, your Facebook privacy settings would need to be public. You can also share directly to their Facebook page instead.)
You have until October 31, 2014 at 11:59 pm to share your picture, so get a move on! Winners will be selected on November 5th!
Photos are judged on 40% creativity, 30% use of PicMonkey Halloween effects, 20% embodiment of contest theme and 10% photo quality.
And now the most important part: what do you win?
Grand Prize: One year subscription to PicMonkey Royale, GoProHero3 (camera) and then a prize specific to your category.
Creepy Canines: Fetch Harness
Scaredy Cats and Other Beasts: Three-Way Mount
Runners up will receive a one-year subscription to Royale and a $25 gift card to Petco.
And just because PicMonkey and Rover are cool like that, they’ve given me a coupon code for you, simply because you’re my readers.
