Fidelco Guide Dogs invites you to enter our 2025 Calendar Photo Contest! We are using GoGo Photo Contest to offer an interactive voting platform that allows you to submit photos to win a spot in the 2025 calendar and raise funds for Fidelco. All proceeds will support Fidelco's life-changing mission to partner people who are blind with German Shepherd guide dogs, providing all clients with increased independence to improve their lives and the world around them.

How It Works:

There are two categories for photo entries:

  • Fidelco Guide Dogs - dogs in harness are preferred but not required. Retired guide dogs qualify for this category.
  • Fidelco Dogs- all Fidelco puppies, breed dogs, or career change dogs.

Submissions will be opened at 12:00:00 AM (Eastern Time) on Monday, July 1, 2024 through 6:00:00 PM (Eastern Time) on Wednesday, July 31, 2024.

Voting begins at 12:00:00 AM (Eastern Time) on Monday, July 1, 2024 and ends at 6:00:00 PM (Eastern Time) on Wednesday, July 31, 2024.

Please post the highest resolution image and largest file size available. Horizontal images are preferred.

Prizes

The top three photos in Guide Dogs, and the top nine photos in Fidelco Dogs will be featured in the 2025 Fidelco calendar**: These winners will receive a copy of the 2025 Fidelco calendar.

Winners are determined by number of votes. Votes cost $1 each, and there is no limit on how many times people can vote. The photos that receive the most votes in their category win their respective category.

The voting proceeds are all tax-deductible donations to Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation. All votes must be paid for online via the contest's secure checkout system; you will receive a tax receipt by email when your transaction is complete.
