Rabbits USA Magazine Photo Contest 2013

Enter your rabbit photos in the Rabbits USA Photo Contest 2013!

Entries are now being accepted for the Rabbits USA Photo Contest 2013, so get clicking with your camera. The categories for next year are:
Rabbits At Play — From toy tossing to hiding to binkies, rabbits have lots of ways to play. Show us!
Rabbits At Rest — Capture your rabbit in repose! Snoozing on the sofa, lounging in the litter box, relaxing in its room or wherever. 

Contest Rules
1. All entries must be postmarked by September 1, 2012.
2. The Rabbits USA Photo Contest is open to all amateur photographers except BowTie Inc. employees or their families.
3. Color prints, slides or digital images will be accepted. Prints should be unmounted, unframed and no larger than 8 by 10 inches. Color slides must be secured in a plastic mount. Digital images must be taken using a camera with 5 or more megapixels set at its highest resolution (mail these entries to us on CD or DVD; you can also e-mail images to
critters@bowtieinc.com — mark the subject line “Rabbits USA Photo Contest”; be sure to include all information from the entry form below). Do not send photos printed by a home computer or Polaroids.
4. You may submit up to three entries per contest category.
5. Each photo/slide must be accompanied by a completed entry form. Photocopies of the entry form are acceptable if you enter more than one photo in the contest. (Please do not use staples or paper clips — they may scratch your photos or slides.) Type or print your information, and be sure it is legible. We are not responsible for misspelled names resulting from misinterpreting handwriting. Be careful not to smear ink on photographs.
6. Previously published photos are not eligible.
7. All entries become the property of Rabbits USA and cannot be returned. Entrants certify that they own the rabbits photographed or have the owner’s permission to enter the photo(s) in the contest. Any potential future use, such as in BowTie Inc.  magazines or websites, is at the discretion of BowTie Inc. No payment, other than the prize money if you win the Rabbits USA annual photo contest, will be awarded. By submitting your photograph to this photo contest, you agree that if you win the contest, your contact information will be given to contest sponsors, who may use the information for marketing purposes.
8. If a photo depicts a potentially risky scenario, such as allowing rabbits access to an open dishwasher, clothes dryer, other animals, Rabbits USA assumes photos were staged under close supervision and that the rabbit’s (or other animal pictured) welfare was never in jeopardy.
9. Prizes will be awarded as follows: first-place winners receive $100; second-place winners, $75; and third-place winners, $50. All will receive an Oxbow prize package as described on Page 104. Judges may also choose several “honorable mention” photographs (no prizes given) to run in the magazine. Prize money is awarded upon publication of the magazine (usually in January).
10. Winners are selected by a panel of judges chosen by the Rabbits USA staff. All entries are judged on suitability to the contest category, technical merit (clarity and composition) and subject matter. All judging decisions are final.  Good luck, and have fun!

Helpful Hints
1. Get close. Allow the scenery to complement your rabbit, not compete with it.
2. Get down. Photograph at your pet’s level. Position yourself on the ground or place your rabbit on a platform or table so your camera is facing your rabbit.
3. Make sure your rabbit is in focus with adequate lighting. 
4. Ask a friend or two for help. Don’t miss the opportunity to take a great photo because you’re trying to do too many things at one time. Have an assistant attract the animal’s attention toward the camera.
5. Make sure your rabbit is well-groomed and in peak condition. 
6. Don’t forget to have fun!

Hi Lisa, Thank you for your message about the photo contest. The dates seem odd because we have to work ahead to get the 2013 released. The 2013 Rabbits USA came out earlier this year. The current contest, for the 2014 issue, has a deadline in 2013. You can find info on entering that contest here LINK

Good Morning
I saw your contest for 2013 but you have to sent a picture by September 2012. How is that a 2013 contest?
