Dawg Days of summer bark to school photo contest to help homeless animals

Hagerstown, MD: Submissions are being taken for Anderson Photographs' Dawg Days of Summer & Bark to School photo contest that is being held during the months of August and September. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Humane Society of Washington County (HSWC).
Award winning photographer Melanie Anderson will be holding 20-minute sessions to capture unique images for her upcoming 2011 canine calendar. The cost for each session will be $49.00 and a donation of $10.00 will be made to the HSWC. The dog's owner will choose one photograph that will be placed on line for a People's Choice voting contest for the honor of Cover Canine. The winner will be announced on Saturday October 30th.
A panel of esteemed judges will choose winners in a variety of categories and one canine will receive the ultimate honor of center pupperfold. This dog will then return for an elaborate photo shoot. "This is the first time I have put together a canine calendar and I am really looking forward to it," said Anderson. "We have come up with a variety of fun categories for dogs to win and I think the center pupperfold will really be the pup de resistance." Owners are encouraged to bring props and costumes that they think will enhance the session for their dogs.
