Is your small animal pet ready for his or her close-up? It's time to show off those adorable faces in our Small Animal Faces contest! You know your rabbit has the most amazing eyelashes or your hamster has the cutest whiskers. And what about the darling noses of ferrets or lovable guinea pig lips? All small animal pets have faces worth framing.
Get out your zoom and capture a close-up image of your pet's face for the world to see. Whether you have a gerbil, hedgehog, rat, chinchilla, sugar glider, mouse or other small animal pet, show him or her at their best. Try to fill the photo with your pet's face.
Note: It's best to use a zoom for this rather than getting the shot with the camera only inches from your pet. When the camera is physically too close to the pet, the focus is a major challenge and distortion can occur (head looks bigger than body) if it does focus.
The contest runs through August 31, 2013. Your first entry earns you 250 Club Critter points (be sure you sign in to your Club Critter account before uploading your photo to earn the points). Club Critter points can be used to purchase items in the Avatar shop or redeem items from the rewards catalog.
Editors will select one winner after the contest ends. The winner of the contest receives 1,000 Club Critter points and the 2013 issue of Rabbits USA magazine, plus a SmallAnimalChannel noisemaker. Two runners-up will also receive a SmallAnimalChannel noisemaker.
The Small Animal Faces contest is open to small animal pets only (guinea pigs, rabbits, ferrets, hamsters, etc.). If you have a dog, cat, bird, reptile, fish or horse, be sure to check out our sister sites (click on the link) for information about those species and to check for contests.
