The Wayne Independent is currently accepting photos for the upcoming printing of the Pet Calendar.
This calendar will be available in early November just in time for holiday gift giving.
Here's how it works: You bring in or send us a sharply contrasted color photo. Our readers, through a dime a vote, will decide which will be our "Pet of the Year." The 12 runner-ups will be our pets of the month and will appear inside our calendar in full color.
Best of all, all calendar sales will help support the Dessin Animal Shelter.
1. Only 1 pet per photo. There is a $10 entry fee per photo to enter. Make checks payable to The Wayne Independent.
2. Send a sharply contrasted color photo of your pet to "Pet Calendar" c/o The Wayne Independent, 220 8ths Street, Honesdale, PA, 18431.
3. The deadline for submission is Friday, Sept. 27.
4. On the back of the photo, lightly print your name, address, day phone number and your pet's name, breed, and anything unusual about your pet.
5. The photos of the semi-finalist will be published mid-September. Readers will cast dime votes for their favorite pet. The pet with the most votes will be declared "Pet of the Year." The 12 runner-ups will be Pets of the Month.
6. Photos will not be returned unless accompanied by a self-addressed stamped envelope or may be picked up at The Wayne Independent office.
7. Employees of The Wayne Independent and their families are not eligible to participate.
