To enter, simply email your photo to photocontest@citydogmagazine.com and if approved (see rules), we will add it the gallery below. Be sure to include your dog’s name and a short description of his/her costume. You can also enter by tagging your photo in Instagram with @citydogmagazine.

The deadline to submit your entry is Sunday, October 31, 2021, at 11:59 p.m. Pacific. Costume categories include: Best Pack (two or more dogs), Funniest, Scariest, Cutest, and Best in Show (judges’ favorite). You must own the photo(s) and photos cannot include text (other than a watermark). No people in the photos, please. Photos with humans or text on them will be disqualified. Winners will be notified by email.

Begging…er, campaigning for votes is strongly encouraged to influence the judges!

To vote, simply click on an image below — you can vote for as many dogs as you want!

The first annual Howl-at-the-Moon photo contest is open now!

When Does the Dog Photo Contest End?
The Halloween photo contest officially closes on Sunday, October 31, 2021, at 11:59 p.m., Pacific.

How are Dog Halloween Photos Judged?
CityDog Magazine’s panel of three judges will pick one winner in each category:

  • Best Pack (two or more dogs)
  • Funniest
  • Scariest
  • Cutest
  • Best in Show (judges' favorite)

The dog or dogs in the photos must be yours and dressed up for Halloween without putting the dog in harm’s way. Don’t make your dog dress up if he doesn’t want to, please. Dogs who don’t like to dress up can wear a fun collar or cute bandana and be entered (one of our categories in Cutest). Or they can be pictured in a pumpkin patch or "Halloween-y" setting.

The judges will choose the winners -- however, shares and likes are encouraged! Share your photo with friends and family and ask them to like and also share (one like per person, per photo is allowed and you can like as many photos as you want)!

We will keep a close eye on popularity and it could influence the judges' decision.

@With no shortage of places to drink with your dog in San Diego, we’ve narrowed it down to five pooch-friendly breweries here. But, have no fear… you can find plenty of more places to imbibe with Bowzer in the CityDog Directory. Link to the full article in our bio.

Pups are welcome at plenty of Portland’s 70+ breweries, providing pooch friendly patios for thirsty people and pooches. We narrowed it down to just five here, but if you visit the newly launched CityDog Directory, you can find a whole lot more! Link to article in our bio.

It's pretty cool when you visit a local brewery and you discover your sticker while waiting in line for a beer. Check out these five Seattle-area breweries where the beers on tap are local and your dog is always welcome. Link in our bio.
