Why are we having this contest?
By having this contest, we are hoping to accomplish two very important goals:

  1. To raise money for Bulldog Rescue.

    Goal Guage

    So far we have collected $180 or 120% of our goal of $150.

    Thank you!

  2. To generate a lot of great Bulldog photos!

    With your help we'll accomplish both goals. You can help us by spreading the word about this contest.

    How can I enter the contest?
    You may submit entries via our web form. Please see the rules at the left for specifics about entering.

    What kind of photos can be entered?
    Any photo of your Bulldog with a patriotic theme. Even though the majority of our visitors are from the United States, entries may include patriotic themes from any country.

    How will this contest support rescue?
    We hope to raise money for Bulldog rescue by way of optional entry fee donations. You may donate as much as you'd like to or nothing at all. In either case, you'll still be eligible to win prizes (see our explanation below about entry tiers).

    What's the deal with the prize tiers?
    Of course we'd love it if everyone could donate an entry fee, but we know that's not possible. Since we want ALL of our friends to enjoy participating in our contests regardless of whether or not they can afford or want to donate to our causes, we use a tiered system.

    Tier 1 entries selected as 1 - 3 place will receive Tier 1 prizes and Tier 2 entries chosen will receive Tier 2 prizes. In the event that there are not enough Tier 2 entries (it coud happen), some Tier 1 entries will be chosen to receive Tier 2 prizes. Only Tier 1 entries are eligible to be selected as Goliath's Pick.

    If the fees are optional how do you expect to raise any money?
    While it is true that you can enter the contest without an entry fee, we have provided some incentives to make donating an entry fee more attractive to our visitors. For example, those who donate a minimum of $5 per photo will be eligible to be chosen as Goliath's Pick and will also be eligible for Tier 1 prizes.
