New Bedford, MA (PRWEB) March 8, 2010
SouthCoastToday.com is on the lookout for Prized Pets for a contest this month sponsored by Melissa’s Pet Depot in Dartmouth.
Site visitors can upload a picture of their Prized Pet between March 8th and noon on March 22nd. After the submission deadline, readers can vote for their favorite entry March 30th. At the conclusion of the contest, the pet who has amassed the most reader votes -- along with a pet selected by a panel of judges -- will each win a $75 gift certificate to Melissa’s Pet Depot in Dartmouth.
“As we have seen over the years, our readers love to show off their pets,” said Fred Harwood, managing editor for online content for The Standard-Times and SouthCoastToday.com. “It seems that for nearly all of our photo contests – Halloween photos, Christmas photos, Summer photos – we get dozens of entries featuring pets. So this is a chance for our readers to share the best photos of their pets without having to dress them up like pumpkins.”
Voting will be restricted to one vote per day per person. Entry to the contest, which is free, must be done using the upload tool on the contest page. For additional rules, visit the contest page at http://www.SouthCoastToday.com/prizedpets.
