We are thrilled to announce The Montclair’s Girl’s 1st Annual Puppy Photo Bowl 2022! Essex County is a great place to have a pup, so sharing photos of your adorable four-legged friend is a must — especially when it’s to help a rescue non-profit — and prizes are involved. This interactive contest will crown one lucky dog as the winner of some amazing local prizes! We will also be donating a portion of the sponsorships to Hounds in Pounds, and encourage our entrants to do the same.
The contest will take place from Tuesday, February 1st through Tuesday, February 15th.
What It Is
Our version of Puppy Bowl is a Puppy Photo Bowl Contest.
Starting Tuesday, February 1st, submit your pet’s cutest photo to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The photo can be of your furry friend in their cutest outfit or in their birthday suit, with a description of their favorite things. Include a screenshot of your donation of $5 or more to Hounds in Pounds, our rescue of choice this year for *extra* consideration.
Nominations will be accepted until 11:59 PM on Monday, February 7th. The nine finalists will be announced on Wednesday, February 9th at which time the entire community will vote on which pup is the cutest canine. Voting will end on Sunday, February 13th at 11:59PM and the winner of the Montclair Girl’s Puppy Photo Bowl 2022 will be announced on Tuesday, February 15th.
