Cheese it up for the camera, dogs—it’s your time to shine. The new Orvis Cover Dog Photo Contest has been announced and entries are being accepted from January 15 through March 31, 2014. Winning canine cover models will appear in The Orvis Dog Book catalog and receive a $500 Orvis Gift Card.
Each online vote in the contest will help fund Morris Animal Foundation, a global leader in animal health science. Orvis and its customers have raised more than $910,000 to fund canine cancer research through a partnership with Morris Animal Foundation and a milestone of one million dollars is right around the corner.
To celebrate the Million Dollar Milestone, early contest entries received between January 15 and February 15, 2014 will be entered in a random drawing to win one of these prizes:
- Grand Prize: a one-year supply of Blue Buffalo Dog Food, a deluxe Tempur-Pedic® Orvis Dog Bed and a $500 Orvis gift card.
- 5 Runners-up: Orvis FleeceLock™ Wraparound Dog Beds.
- 10 Honorable Mentions: Orvis Personalized Side-Release Buckle Dog Collars.
Making it even more interesting, Jonathan Goldsmith, the actor who plays The Most Interesting Man in the World in Dos Equis beer ads, appears in a video for the contest. It’s worth the click (video above) to hear him speak in his real voice.
