Get your pup into fur and makeup. It’s pet photo contest season. Enter your cover dog in these three pet photo contests for a chance to win gift cards, dog training sessions, even coaching for TV and film dog roles. These could lead to your dog’s big break.


AAA Traveling With Your Pet Photo Contest
Did you snap a shot of Fido at the tables in Vegas? If you’ve got great pictures of your pet on vacation, than this is your contest. The AAA PetBook Photo Contest winning shot will appear on the cover of the 11th edition of Traveling With Your Pet: The AAA PetBook, plus get a $350 AAA VISA Gift Card and five complimentary copies of the book. Even second place winners walk away with a prize: a $200 AAA VISA Gift Card, along with a photo on the book’s spine and two complimentary copies to prove it.


Starpet 2008 Contest
For the divas, the cover dogs, the pup stars, the Starpet 2008 photo contest wants you!  Just upload your dog’s best shot or video, fill out the entry form and she’s in. Then tell your friends to start voting – all entires are judged by online voting. The three fabulous semi-finalists who receive the most votes get a two-night trip to the finals in New York City. Complete with airfare and posh hotel accommodations for the dog and their person, it’s almost as exciting as the grand prize: three months of representation by the legendary dog trainer Bash Dibra, including coaching on landing television and film roles for your pet.


Good Housekeeping Halloween Pet Photo Contest
If your dog does a great Donald Trump impression on Halloween, or is just hilarious in her costume, don’t keep it a secret. Share your dog’s best Halloween photo with Good Housekeeping magazine’s Second Annual Halloween Pet Costume Contest.

Just think…you could be one great pet photo away from your dog’s shot on the Good Housekeeping website and these amazing prizes: a Grand Prize trip to Sundance Trail Guest Ranch ($8,000 value!), a second-place custom pet portrait, and a third-place pet gift basket.
