Photo Tips

  • Each photo needs to have at least one Cardigan Welsh Corgi; but there can be multiple Cardigan Welsh Corgis per photo submission.
  • Try to get down on their level (on the ground) to get the best possible photo.  It makes a huge difference!
  • Outdoor and season specific shots always work well!
  • Photos should not include humans or other dog breeds.
  • Photos can be from previous years if they are your best photos.

Photos received may be cropped and resized and edited to fit specific calendar sizes and guidelines.

If you want your entry returned to you by mail, you must provide an addressed mailing label or envelope and appropriate postage.

Submitting an entry constitutes permission for CCWCC to use your photo in other club publications. You will retain the rights to your own photos, and can still submit them to any other contest, sell them, or use them however else you like!
