Capitol Hill goes all out for Halloween. And so do our readers when it comes to dressing their beloved dog or cat in ridiculous costume for our pet photo contest (we’re still waiting for our first hamster entry).
Last year, more than thirty pets competed, resulting in some serious competition for coveted prizes. This year looks to be no different.
So, want to enter Fido or Fluffy? It’s simple. Any pet is welcome to participate. All entries must be sent and emailed to The Hill is Home (THIHcontest@gmail.com) by Friday, Nov. 2nd.
Pets will be eligible for the following two prizes:
- Least-Like-the-Species Award (selected by THIH editors): Think your critter’s costume completely hides his or her dog-ness, cat-ness, or hamster-ness? Win a selection of treats and a $25 gift card to Metro Mutts.
- Readers’ Choice Award: THIH readers vote for their favorite collective entry, and for that trick you’ll be rewarded with a $50 gift card to Metro Mutts.
Readers will be able to vote for their favorite photo Nov. 5th-9th. Winners will be announced here on Monday, Nov. 12th.
Don’t delay! Enter today! Oh, and please read the fine print after the jump…
The Fine Print
