Cover photo contest – Winter 2020 issue of Bham Pets

No photo has been submitted for the contest. Be the first!


Want to see your fur baby gracing the cover of the Winter 2020 issue of Bham Pets? Enter them today and let our readers vote on the winner! There are a few rules to follow, so read up and let's make it easy on everyone.

Submitting your photo is easy. But pay attention to these tips and rules.

  • Make sure your photo is high resolution. In non-graphic designer speak, that means that it needs to be crisp and clear, and the size needs to be big [at least 1 MB]. Photos that look good on your phone or computer don't always look great when printed, although the latest models of smart phones are taking incredible, high resolution photos.
  • Keep your pet's head away from the top edge of the photo. Take a look at the cover of our magazine to understand why. The masthead ["Bham Pets" across the top of the cover] will always go right there, so there needs to be room in the photo above your pet's head for that to go. We don't want to cover up his or her eyes with the name of the magazine.
  • Photos that include people in them will not be accepted for the contest.
  • Include your name [we won't share it publicly] and your city location [we will share this, though]. If you live in a suburb, put that suburb's name. We want to give "Rosie of Pelham," "Bailey of Irondale," and "Champ of Birmingham" credit for their hometown!
  • You may enter photos for as many different pets as you'd like, but please submit each one separately. For each pet, please submit only one photo.
  • The winning photo is the one that will be published; we will not accept a new photo of the winning animal after he or she has won the contest.
  • We reserve the right to select a runner up if the winning photo is of poor quality or doesn't meet the guidelines above. We love all the photos that are submitted to us, but we're talking about the cover of a magazine -- it needs to look good!
