The Fifth Annual
"Something To Smile About"

This is the fifth year anniversary of the PETroglyphs' 'YOU OUGHTA BE IN PICTURES' Photo Contest which gives us a lot to smile about. We know the animals share our happiness over the photo contest's fifth year, too. Appropriately, the theme of this year's contest is "Something To Smile About." We want to see pictures of happy animals smiling.

Grab your camera and start clicking photos of your animal friends whether they are cats, dogs, horses, parrots, guinea pigs, iguanas, rabbits, rats or any other animal having fun and smiling.

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

Email your favorite jpg's (250 KB - 1 MB) to 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 and pet's name with your entries. Send clear, sharp photos. Photos under 50K will not be considered. One submission per family. The photos will not be returned unless you include a SASE. The deadline for submissions is August 1, 2008. The judges decisions are final. To take perfect pet photos check the "Pet Photo Tips" on our website at:

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 capturing those smiles.
