We are now accepting photos for our 2019 Calendar Contest! Your golden could be one of the featured Goldens to grace next year’s calendar!


The contest is open to ALL goldens that are inspiring our volunteers, supporters and members! We are looking for great shots of that showing off, acting regal, being silly, enjoying a special holiday, frolicking outside, lounging inside, or just sporting that GRREAT Golden “smile.” We want to see any shot that you feel shows that wonderful GOLDEN personality!


2018 Calendar Photo RulesUpon review of the photos submitted, we will select 20 to 24 photos to be included in an online voting contest. Photos chosen for the voting contest will be judged on composition, quality and emotional appeal.

Voting will allow our friends and supporters to pick the 2019 SEVA GRREAT Calendar twelve monthly winners. Voting for 2019 SEVA GRREAT Calendar Contest will run July 4, 2018 thru August 4, 2018.


Each vote in the photo contest will be $1.00. The 12 photos with the most votes will be 2019 SEVA GRREAT Calendar winners. The remaining photos will be featured on the back inside cover, and may receive special recognition throughout the calendar. We will make every effort to incorporate into the calendar the photo of each dog entered into the photo contest.
