Frequently Asked Questions
Can my cat participate?
This event is for dogs only, but you are welcome to include a cat in the photo with your dog if you like.
Should I create a scene for the photo or just send a photo of my dog?
It is up to you! A scene would be a nice addition to the photo, but it isn’t necessary. Obviously the dog will be the centerpiece of our judging.
How will the photo be used?
Any photo submitted may be shared on our social media platforms and on the voting form that will be widely distributed. Along with the photo, we will also share the dog’s name and any notes included with the photo submission. When submitting your photo you will grant permission to the Atlanta Botanical Garden to utilize the image, likeness and/or sound recordings for the purpose whatsoever in perpetuity.
Is there a fee to participate?
No – photo submissions are free.
Can I submit more than once?
Yes, but not with the same photo or dog costume multiple times or to multiple categories. We will only select your dog as a finalist once and our sanity should be considered before submitting many photos of your dog.
