New Mexico's Pet Resource SUMMER 2008


COVER STORY

The Fourth Annual ‘YOU OUGHTA BE IN PICTURES’ Photo Contest: "CAPTION CRAZY"


You look at your animal companions and just know what they’re thinking. Sometimes it’s humorous, sometimes it’s sarcastic, and sometimes it’s sentimental. You know your companions’ dispositions and how they think. Now you have a chance to let the rest of the world know your companions thoughts, too. PETroglyphs’ ‘YOU OUGHTA BE IN PICTURES’ Photo Contest this year is called “Caption Crazy.”

We want you to grab your camera and start clicking pictures of your animal friends whether they are cats, dogs, horses, parrots, guinea pigs, iguanas, rabbits, rats or any other animal doing something they enjoy. That’s only step one, though. Once you take that winning shot, we want you to add a caption to your picture letting us know what the animal is saying or thinking. Look at some examples in the photos above and throughout this issue.

This year’s winning photo will receive a grand prize and will grace the cover of the PETroglyphs fall issue. Second and third place photos will also receive prizes. Runner up winners and honorable mention photos will be featured on inside pages. The top 20 photos will be published on our website in living color.

Email your favorite jpg’s (50-250 KB) to petroglyphsnm@yahoo.com or snail mail your photo to PETroglyphs, Attn: Nancy Marano, 7601 Vista del Arroyo NE, Albuquerque, NM 87109. Please include the photographer’s name, address, phone number, e-mail, pet’s name, photo and caption with your entries. Send clear, sharp photos. One submission per family. The photos will not be returned unless you include a SASE. The deadline for submissions is August 1, 2008. Decisions of the judges are final. For tips on taking perfect pet photos check the “Pet Photo Tips” on our website at www.PetroglyphsNM.org/PetPhotoTips.html.

While we don’t charge an entry fee for the contest because we want as many entries as possible, a donation to PETroglyphs would be appreciated. Your donations keep us publishing.

Have fun snapping those pictures and writing the captions.
