If a submitted photo wins the contest but does not meet print calendar requirements, a new color portrait will be taken by Woods Humane Society. The photograph will become a month spread in the 2025 calendar and the next runner-up will be selected for the 2024 calendar.

Once your file has uploaded, scroll down to the Print Size Recommendations. Look for the ppi associated with your photo when printed to at least 12” x 12” in size. A ppi of 250 or more means your photo is print quality for the calendar.
Be sure to upload this print quality photo in the "Story" section of your fundraising page!
All story submissions (written narratives about your pet) should be 200 words or less. Stories become the property of Woods Humane Society and may be edited.
