Early Bird Registration — Until April 10
Enter your pet pooch in OCDLA’s very first Dog Photo Contest!
Here’s how the contest works —
1. Submit one JPG photo of your dog to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 9. Only one photo per registrant — multiple photo submissions will be disqualified.
2. OCDLA will display the dog photos at the conference in a PowerPoint and as printed pages.
3. OCDLA will provide a PDF version of the dog photo PowerPoint prior to the conference.
4. Conference attendees will vote at the conference for their favorite dog or pet. The dog or pet who receives the most votes wins a prize.
5. Depending on the number of submissions, OCDLA reserves the right to narrow the contenders.
