Show your true ‘petriot love’

An online Canada Day pet photo contest hosted by Black Press is pitting proud pet owners against one another.

An online Canada Day pet photo contest hosted by Black Press is pitting proud pet owners against one another in the quest for a fun prize package.

Called the True Petriot Love Contest, passionate pet owners should be up to the challenge.

Snapping pictures of Mittens, Rascal and Tweety is something most people already love to do.

“Everyone loves their pet and especially taking pictures of their pet,” says Nelson Star publisher Karen Bennett. “This is just a fun way to incorporate Canada Day celebrations into a contest people are already going to enjoy.”

She’s hoping people get creative by way of displaying their patriotic pride with flags, bandanas and other Canadian memorabilia all making good accessories. Maple leafs are a safe bet but it’s how they’re used that will peg one photo a notch above the rest.

This is the first time Black Press if offering a contest running across the West Kootenay. Competition will be stiff with pet owners from Nelson, Trail, Rossland, Castlegar and Grand Forks all participating.

“Pets are popular so this is a great place to start with our first regional contest,” says Bennett.

Prizes on offer include a $50 shopping spree gift card from Dig Garden Centre; a Canadian-made Silverfoot collar and leash set plus a Red Dingo ID tag from Tails in Rossland (valued at over $60); restaurant gift certificates courtesy Selkirk Veterinary Hospital valued at $100; Up to 25 lb of Petcurian Pet Food from Nelson Farmer’s Supply worth $50 and a cat and dog prize package from Central Bark.

To enter the photo contest go to our newspaper website and click on contests. Register and then upload your Petriot Love photo.

The contest is now open with a deadline of July 1, Canada Day. Good luck!
