Last Chance to Enter Lowcountry Dog Magazine’s Dog Model Contest



By: Lowcountry Dog Magazine

Think your dog has what it takes? Enter your dogs in the annual Lowcountry Dog Model Contest! Here is one of the few ways to get your fur baby on the cover of Lowcountry Dog Magazine! Lowcountry Dog’s Spring Model Contest has been extremely popular for more than 13 years. This is how the Lowcountry Dog Calendar Models are chosen, as well as that one dog to grace the cover of the magazine! 

Go to through March 31st to enter. There is an $8 fee and each dog must have their own entry. Recently taken, clear photos that show the dog’s face and their ‘modeling ability’ are best. Explain why your dog deserves to be a Lowcountry Dog Model. Those who enter must be in the Lowcountry or willing to travel if needed for photoshoots. There will also be an option to donate greater. A PORTION OF ALL ENTRY FEES PLUS DONATIONS COLLECTED DURING THE CONTEST WILL GO TO HELP LOCAL RESCUES AND SHELTERS! Entering the contest also automatically puts you in a raffle to win a $200 prize package!

“We are looking for true Lowcountry Dogs!” Alyssa Helms, Media Manager for Lowcountry Dog states. “Some dogs just have that ‘it’ factor, but a dog who is good off leash, attentive, and motivated to please make the best models. Whether you are a purebred, rescue, puppy, or senior, all dogs are welcome to enter. We are always looking for talented and special dogs to showcase. The judges also love hearing rescue stories.”

Out of the hundreds of entries, 40 dogs will be selected by judges to receive a professional photoshoot with Southern Vintage Photography (there is a small sitting fee, but you will receive one image for your use). Those 40 finalists will compete by popular vote on Lowcountry Dog’s website in the coming months using their new photos.

The dog with the MOST popular votes from the Top 40 gets a cover shoot in the August 2023 Issue of Lowcountry Dog Magazine. The top 12 dogs will be 2024 Lowcountry Dog Calendar Models and each receives another professional photoshoot from Southern Vintage, and pictures may be purchased for personal use! Full rules and details can be found at May the best dog model win!
