Calendar Contest

Show the world how great your pet is! We know your phone is filled with photos of your furry or feathered friends. Now is your chance to brag about them in public as part of the BCSPCA 2021 Calendar Contest fundraiser.

Submit one or more photos of your BCSPCA-adopted animal(s): dog, cat, bird, rabbit, goat, Guinea pig or any other kind of animal adopted from our Lahaska or Quakertown shelters. Our illustrious panel of judges (aka our staff) will view all submissions anonymously and vote for the best 12 to be used as the featured animal on each calendar page!

Have fun capturing the silly, playful, lazy, or regal side of your amazing animal(s). Any theme, season, or setting will do, just make sure at least one animal pictured was adopted from BCSPCA. No people in the pictures, please.

Review the submission rules below. Contact Morgan at mvanzelst @ bcspca.org or 215-794-7425 if you have questions.

DEADLINE for submitting photos: July 20, 2020.


  • All photos, payment, and personal information must be received by July 20, 2020.
  • Each photo submitted requires a $20 donation (which is not tax deductible). While 12 photos will be chosen for a feature image on each page, we will do our best to use as many of the submitted photos in small placement throughout the rest of the calendar.
  • Photos will be judged for composition, quality, and awe-factor (emotional appeal).
  • All photos must be horizontal (landscape) orientation.
  • Please set your camera to the highest image resolution possible. If the image quality is too low for printing purposes, we will not be able to use it in the calendar.
  • Submit your photo(s) in digital format only (no prints). Email photos as attachments to Morgan at mvanzelst @ bcspca.org.  Do not select to reduce the size when emailing. We must receive the full size image for printing purposes.
  • Include your animal’s name and your last name as the file name for your image(s). Number them if submitting more than one image of an animal. For example: Tigger Smith 1; Tigger Smith 2.
  • In your email message please provide: your name, mailing address, phone number, animal’s name, and the number of photos being sent with that email. You will receive an email confirmation within 48 hours. If you do not receive confirmation, please try again or call Morgan at 215-794-7425.
  • Submitted photos must include at least one BCSPCA-adopted animal.
  • No humans in the picture, please; but you can include other animals (BCSPCA-adopted or not).
  • BCSPCA reserves the right to use pictures submitted in our 2021 BCSCPA Calendar and on our website.
  • If your photo is selected for one of the twelve months, we will contact you to ask for a brief story about your animal and what they mean to you. Stories may be edited for length.
  • Calendars will be available for purchase by October 1, 2020.
  • Make payment online or send a check payable to BCSPCA to PO Box 277, Lahaska, PA 18931 and include a note with your name, phone, email and name of your animal(s). Cost is $20 per photo.
