    Announcing Doberman-chat’s 2018 calendar contest!

    It's time again to begin taking photo submissions now so everyone has plenty of time to get their perfect shots in.
    We are going to have 3 categories/different calendars again, which will consist of the following:

    *Doberman’s in general Anything that’s scenic, playful, working, etc. would make for a nice calendar page.
    Prize to the first place winner will be a custom collar from Ridgeway Leatherworks
    Sponsored by Ridgeway Leatherworks. Thank you Rob!
    The collar can 1.5-2", 4 concho design for male or female or with a name with a few concho's and rivets. (Personalized with their name will substitute 2 conchos). Stitched or Unstitched.

    *All puppies (we have plenty again this year) and even if you have cute photos of your adult when he/she was a pup you are welcome to submit them. Pups must be under the age of 12 months in the photo. All breeds of puppies are eligible.
    Prize for the first place winner will be a Colorado Fleece Sweater. Sponsored by Euro Dog Designs. Thank you Katja!

    *There will only be one winner in each category for this contest although all submissions may be used for future advertising purposes.

    *You may submit up to 2 photos of each dog in each category. Please title your photos so it's easier to post the voting polls when the time comes.

    * All images must be taken by you and not be in any copyright violations.

    *All entries must be submitted by October 15, 2017.

    *All entries must be in Landscape orientation or they cannot be accepted.

    * A community poll will be created for members to vote for the winning submissions in each category. This poll will start on October 16, 2017 and run through November 7, 2017. The winner will be officially announced November 7, 2017. Only members with 10 posts or more will be able to vote in the polls.

    * In the event of a tie, the first place winner will be determined by the doberman-chat.com staff and officially announced by November 10, 2017.

    * By submitting an entry you grant Doberman-chat permission to use your material as a reference in other areas of the board and on DCF merchandise.

    *We will try to use all entries in one of the calendars, but it is very important that you have a high resolution photo available to use for the calendar when the time comes.
    If you cannot provide a high resolution photo, your entry can not be used.

    * The Doberman-chat staff reserves the right to resolve disputes and disqualify entries as they see fit.

    * Please no photos with people in them. While they might be great pics, they don't make for good calendar shots. And be aware of your background as well keeping in mind what looks good in any calendar.

    * You must be a registered member with at least 10 posts (no padding) within the last six months in order to participate in this contest.

    * The Winner must be willing to PM a member of the doberman-chat.com staff their mailing address to receive their prize by mail.

    *DO NOT SUBMIT YOUR ENTRIES HERE – there will be a special thread for each category!!!!*

    *You may however ask questions in this thread rather than in the photo submission threads.

    Here is a step by step tutorial on how to post photos, either from your personal photo host or by uploading them directly on this site (preferred).

    Instructions for uploading photos can be found here.

    What exactly is high resolution? I do everything from my phone, so would those be ok or no?

    They have to be exactly 1800 high X 2400 wide but if they're bigger than that I can resize them. If your phone is newer and doesn't automatically size them down it should be okay.

    Define all breed vs Dobi, My dog looks like dobis plays like a husky, Barks and T.war like rottweiler and stuborn and smart as Dobis ( or I think so!!!!!) ;-)

    This is actually a good question. The all Doberman one is for purebred Dobermans but the other categories are for Doberman mixes or other breeds.

    We seem on the 'light' side this year for entries?! Are we still struggling in the 'All breed' category?

    That one is light compared to most years.

    All of the entry threads have been closed and I'll try to get the voting up as soon as I can. It might be a few days since I was unexpectedly called away but I'll work on it when I can.

    I'm so far behind when I've been away from home, but I'm hoping to have them done asap. Sorry about that.
