Squshify My Pet - Custom Pet Ornament Contest!

The holidays are coming up and what would be more fun for your holiday tree than a custom ornament of your pet!? How about a free custom ornament of your pet!

That's right it's contest time!
What can I win?

The 1st prize winner will receive a custom ornament and a small print illustration of their winning pet (dog or cat). There are some examples of custom pet ornaments we've made in the past, pictured above.

The 2nd and 3rd place winners will receive small post card sized print illustration of their pet (dog or cat).
Below are examples of what illustrated Squshies look like. A custom illustration of your pet will be done in this style. 
Participants must be ok with the process of the custom ornament and illustrations being shared on the blog and social media (the sketches, the photos you'll provide us to work from, the final product, etc.)

How do I enter?

To enter share your best pet photo with us on Instagram, Tumblr or Twitter. Use the special contest hashtag #SqushifyMyPet so we can find your photos!

Or you can leave a message on our Facebook page with your photo!

You can even email your best pet photos to danielle at squshies.net. Please use SqushifyMyPet in the email subject line.

Please remember if you share your photos on a private social media account we won't be able to see them!

Participants must be ok with their pet photos being shared on our social media accounts and blog

How many times can I enter?

You may enter as many pets (dogs and cats only) as you like, but only one photo per pet please. No matter how many pets you submit, you will only be eligible for one prize. If you submit a photo  that has more than one pet present, only one custom pet will be made for the prize.

How long do I have to enter?

The last day for entries will be Sunday September 14th

How will the winner be determined?

We will be picking our 10 favorite pet photos from all the entries submitted. These 10 finalists will be compiled into a blog post on our website.

You'll help us decide which of the finalists will be the winner by commenting with your favorite photo! All photos will be assigned a number for easy commenting.

How long will voting last?

Voting will end Sunday September 21st

How will I know if I won?

Once the finalists are decided and the blog post goes live we will be notifying the finalists via the method they originally shared their photo. If you are a finalist, we will request your email address at this point so we can easily contact you if you win.

Shortly after the voting periods ends we will be notifying the winners. Winners will have 48 hours to respond. If no response is received, we'll move on to the next runner up.

Why do you need my email?

Messages can often be missed or overlooked on social media outlets. E-mail gives us a much more reliable way to communicate with the winners. You only have 48 hours to respond, so a reliable communication method is very important.

What happens if I win?

If you win we'll e-mail you to let you know the good news! You have 48 hours to respond to claim your prize.

After the winner is announced we’ll make a custom ornament of the winning dog or cat and the post card sized cartoon illustration prints for all 3 prize winners.

In order to make your custom ornament and print we may require additional photos from all winners, for reference (straight on shots work best).

We will be documenting the process of creating a custom ornament on our social media.
