Photo Contest Entry

You're invited to submit your best beagle pictures for our annual calendar photo contest! We will again be looking for the best color photos to use on each month of the calendar, in addition to the cover.

What makes a good photo? We are judging the quality of the photo (no glowing eyes or photos with date stamps) and dogs doing what they do best—having fun or relaxing. We are only looking for photos of beagles; pictures that include other breeds of dogs, other animals, and people will not be considered. Make sure your photos meet our requirements (see contest rules). All photo entries are due by July 7, 2018.

Important Notes:

  • An entry form must be completely filled out and signed or submitted online and all photo submissions paid for in full before the photo will be eligible for the voting phase.
  • We are only accepting digital files sent via email to
  • If you only have print photos, please have them scanned so that you can email a digital file to us.
  • See our pages on technical photo tips and artistic tips for the best beagle pictures.
  • There is an entry fee of $10.00 per picture. There is no limit on how many pictures you may submit. Photos that appeared in a previous year's calendar will not be considered.

    Once we have received all of the entries, the photos will be posted on the website. The Calendar Committee will make the decision whether each photo is eligible to be a large photo or a small photo in the calendar. You can then vote for which beagles you think should be featured as the thirteen large photos (one for each month in addition to the cover photo). The runner-up photos will be featured as smaller photos throughout the calendar. Voting will take place between 12:01 am on July 9 and 11:59 pm August 15, 2018 on our website for a fee. Finally, we expect the calendars to be available by the B.O.N.E.S. Bash on Saturday, September 28, 2019. All net proceeds from the photo submissions, voting, sponsorship, and sale of the calendars will directly help B.O.N.E.S.' efforts to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome beagles throughout the Northeast. We appreciate your generosity!
