Submit Your Maltese Photo
QualityDogs.com is currently seeking user-contributed photos for a handful of less-common breeds, including the Maltese.
These photos will appear in the header of breed-specific pages, as a representation of how the breed looks.
So, we are holding a contest! If you have a Maltese that you believe represents the breed standard,
and you're handy with a camera, we invite you to submit your dogs photo to QualityDogs.com.
First, a few guidelines... photos must be in JPG (preferred) or GIF format. The photo, of course, must be your own
property for which you hold the rights. And, because of the graphic format of the site, preference will be
given for photos that show just the dog, in a "stacked" (standing) position, either from the side or shoulder-on
(halfway between a side view and a front view), against a white or light background and standing on a white or light
surface. Here's a great example:
And now for the fun part... the prizes! QualityDogs.com staff will choose one winning photo and one runner up from all photos submitted
site-wide, based on (1) quality of photo, (2) representation of breed type (3) conformation to site design. Additionally,
QualityDogs.com staff will choose up to 5 honorable mentions, the number depending on the total number of breeds
with photos submitted and chosen for publication. The winning
entrants will receive the following prizes:
- A long-sleeve cotton twill QualityDogs.com embroidered shirt
- "The Encyclopedia of Dog Breeds," hardcover book
- "Nature: Dogs That Changed the World," DVD
Honorable Mention Prize
- A QualityDogs.com embroidered polo shirt
- Dog-opoly Board Game
- A QualityDogs.com embroidered baseball cap
And now the fine print: By contributing your photo, you are giving QualityDogs.com permission to post the photo on the QualityDogs.com website.
Additionally, by posting your photo, you are asserting that you are the rightful owner of the photo and any
