If there are two things we love most here at 7x7, they're San Francisco (and all its colorful 'hoods!) and animals of all shapes and sizes. Anytime the two worlds collide, it really gets us going. That's why we're proud to help our friends at the SF SPCA present DOGMA, a bustling Hayes Valley street fair and pet talent show on September 24th celebrating pet adoptions and local businesses. To kick things off, we're starting a photo contest featuring pets repping their neighborhoods. And yes, that means all pets–dogs, cats, lizards, birds, hamsters, fish...any critter that lights up your life, posing in front of iconic SF landmarks or your favorite neighborhood haunt. You can even dress 'em up.
And boy, are there prizes to be had. The winner will be selected by an epic round of voting, and here's what they'll get:
- The honor of being the Official Mascot of the DOGMA street fair
- Two tickets to 7x7's Hot 20 Party in AT&T Park
- $100 for any SF SPCA service or adoption
- A two-night stay in a Deluxe Suite for up to two dogs from Wag Hotel
- A collar and leash set from Gwen Gear San Francisco
- BBs Jet Set Pets Purrari Pet Throw
- A Chronicle Books pet books package
- A P.L.A.Y. pet bed
- Portrait Session from Nuena Photography
What do we need from you? You pet's (high resolution) glamour shot, your pet's name, the type of animal or breed, and the neighborhood you both represent. You have until the end of the day on September 12th to submit your pet to firstname.lastname@example.org. Voting opens on September 14th, and on September 22nd, the winner of DOGMA will be announced. We can't wait to see some animal eye candy!
