Havahart is calling on consumers everywhere to submit their cute, funny, and interesting animal photos for a chance to win a $500 American Express Gift Card. Starting June 1, 2011, anyone lucky enough to capture an animal in action can submit their original photos online to Havahart for a chance to win!

Havahart is accepting photo submissions ranging from those uninvited yard guests to pets playing in the yard. So if there’s a raccoon picking through the garbage, a squirrel attempting to steal from a birdfeeder, or a skunk caught in a Havahart cage trap, submit the photo for a chance to win $500 cash!

Photos can be uploaded at between June 1, 2011, and July 15, 2011.

"This is your chance to show the world just what happens in your yard and garden area when the critters think you're not looking," explained Lauren Eyer, Woodstream category development associate, Havahart. "We encourage anyone to catch their furred and feathered visitors in action and enter their best photos in the Havahart Critters: Caught in the Act photo contest."

Best of all, the winner of the contest is determined by number of votes, and the photo with the most votes wins. Voting is open from July 16, 2011 to August 1, 2011, and visitors can vote once per day. This year, Havahart has added share buttons to each photo submission so entrants can share their photos with friends on Facebook, Twitter and a number of other social sites and tell them to vote.

During the voting period consumers can follow the leader board to keep track of which photo has the most votes. In addition to the $500 American Express gift card first place photo prize; the second and third place photos will receive $250 and $100 American Express gift cards, respectively.

“We’re really excited about this year’s contest with adding the social media sharing function because entrants get a chance to share their photo with friends on Facebook and Twitter and potentially increase their chances of winning.” said Eyer.

"We've all seen critters up to no good – a skunk eating from the cat dish outside, or a raccoon lounging on your deck -- and wished we had a camera close at hand," Eyer stated. "Now is the time to keep that camera near the window or with the gardening supplies. The Havahart team is looking forward to seeing the interesting, touching and downright funny photos our contest entrants submit."

Critters: Caught in the Act kicks off June 1, 2011. Learn more and enter the photo contest now for your chance to win.
