Piper and I are excited to share with our readers a contest that anyone can enter. Pic Monkey, a photo editing website, is having a seriously cool contest where you can share your photograph with Halloween edits like so (and read below to find out how to enter)...
Halloween’s rough for pets. They can’t trick-or-treat, they can’t throw parties, and their costume selection is seriously lacking. To fight The Man Pic Monkey has partnered with fellow Seattle startup Rover.com—a nationwide network of dog lovers that connects pet owners with local, loving dog sitters—to put together a spectacular Halloween contest. It’s called #FrankenPet and you could be one of the winners.
How’s all this work?Simply don your photogenic pet in a costume (or not, it’s optional) snap a photo, and jazz ‘em up with our Halloween features.
Once your masterpiece is complete, share it. As long as you use #FrankenPet, we’ll see it on our Twitter, Facebook*, Pinterest, Instagram, Google+, and Flickr. You gotta share by 11:59pm on Halloween, and the winners will be announced on the 5th of November (remember remember).
Who wins?Three winners. Three runner-ups. One for each category: Creepy Canines, Scaredy Cats, and Other Beasts (birds, lizards, monkeys, you name it). We’re looking for creatures with the most creative photos. Scare us, delight us, or make us say d’aawwwww!
Is there a method to this madness?!Photos will be judged by an independent panel of photographers and pet owners, based on the following criteria:
- 40% creativity
- 30% use of PicMonkey Halloween effects
- 20% embodiment of contest theme
- 10% photo quality
What’s in it for me?Grand prize winners will win one year of PicMonkey Royale and one of the following (depending on your category):
- Creepy Canines: GoPro Hero3 with a Fetch Harness
- Scaredy Cats: GoPro Hero3 with a 3-Way Mount
- Other Beasts: GoPro Hero3 with a 3-Way Mount
Runners-up will win a year of PicMonkey Royale and a $25 giftcard to Petco.
Wait a minute! Where’s your obligatory legal stuff?Contest Submission Agreement: By submitting to the #FrankenPet contest, you give PicMonkey and Rover permission to reuse your photos in future branded content and promotions. Neither Rover nor PicMonkey employees are eligible to win. Everyone is welcome to participate, but due to legal mumbo jumbo, prize eligibility is limited to the United States.
*If you’re posting to Facebook, your privacy settings will affect whether or not we can find your image. If your profile is set so only your friends can see your photos, we definitely won’t be able to find it. So you can either post your photo directly to our Facebook page, choose one of the other social media options to share your photo, or change your privacy settings for the duration of the contest (if you’re so inclined).
And visit Rover.com to find a dog sitter. You can use code "sandpiper20" to receive $20 off a dog sitting service.
I was not compensated for this review, though I will receive a free month of Royale services for sharing the contest. Coupon code void where prohibited.
