The Eighth Annual
"DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME" Photo Contest

Got a great photo of your companion animal stashed away just waiting for its 15 minutes of fame? If not, grab your camera and start clicking photos of your animal friends now whether they are cats, dogs, horses, parrots, guinea pigs, iguanas, rabbits, rats or any other animal.

This is the eighth year for the PETroglyphs' 'YOU OUGHTA BE IN PICTURES' Photo Contest. The theme of this year's contest is "Don't Try This At Home." We've all seen our animals twist themselves into impossible shapes in their sleep or at play. Or they might be stuck in a place where they don't belong like a Christmas tree or a cabinet. We want you to share some of those photos with us this year. The judges look forward to seeing what you send in and how your animals will amaze us.

This year's winning photo receives a grand prize and will grace the cover of the PETroglyphs Winter issue. Second and third place photos receive prizes and have their picture on the cover of the New Mexico Animal Lovers' Resource Guide section of PETroglyphs. Honorable mentions will be featured on PETroglyphs' inside pages. The top 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 250KB will not be considered. One submission per family. The photos will not be returned unless you include a SASE. The deadline for submissions is October 1, 2012 Note: submission deadline has been extended to October 15, 2012. Judges decisions are final. To take perfect pet photos check our "Pet Photo Tips" article.

While we don't charge an entry fee for the contest, a donation to PETroglyphs would be greatly appreciated. Your donations keep us publishing.
