Happy Holidays: The Contest

by Jen on December 7, 2011

We, the tag elves, are in the Fetching Tags studio round the clock these days, hammering out tags for you & yours.  We’ve had no extra time to decorate or bake or even sing anything other than elf work songs.

So, we have one request:

Entertain us.

That’s right, we could use a little bit of your holiday cheer.  In fact, we’d be willing to, well, host a giveaway & give big Fetching Tags gift certificates as prizes & smaller ones just for entering.

This contest is a little different, because there are a few ways to enter, each with a different prize.

1. Holiday Song:  Sing a holiday song about or to your dog or other pet (or to or about Fetching Tags!).   Your song can be a complete original or can be sung to the tune of your favorite carol or other holiday song.  We’ll give you a $10 Fetching Tags gift certificate just for entering the song category.

Holiday Song Prizes:  $60 Fetching Tags gift certificate to the best song, $30 FT certificate to the ‘almost the best’ song.

To enter, email a sound file or video link to us:  jen@fetchingtags.net

2.  Holiday Haiku:  Pen a holiday haiku about or to your dog or other pet (or to or about Fetching Tags!).  Post it on our facebook page with your email address.

Entries must follow standard haiku form.  What’s a haiku? We’ll give you a $5 Fetching Tags gift certificate just for entering the haiku category.

Holiday Haiku Prizes:  $50 Fetching Tags gift certificate to the best Holiday Haiku, $25 FT certificate to the ‘almost the best’ Holiday Haiku.

3. Holiday Photo:  Capture your dog in or among holiday finery or other significant holiday scenes or props. Post it on our facebook page with your email address.  We’ll give you a $4 Fetching Tags gift certificate just for entering the photo category.

Holiday Photo Prizes:  $40 Fetching Tags gift certificate to the best Holiday Photo, $20 FT certificate to the ‘almost the best’ Holiday Photo.

Deadline for entries:  Monday Dec 12, noon EST. winners announced, certificates emailed Tues Dec 13.

The italicized fine print:

You may enter one, two, or three of the categories, with multiple entries in each, if you’d like – but you’ll only get ONE gift certificate for entering (highest value of categories entered), per household.  Same goes for the prizes – one per household.

We have to have your email address to send your participation gift certificate.

This contest will be judged by tag elves & a guest judge, all of whom are unmoved by your offers to donate or give away your winnings to needy friends or dogs.   Best & ‘almost the best’ will be based on your creativity & our entertained-ness – not necessarily you or your pets’ skill.

Please don’t recycle old entries in photos or haiku – we want the new stuff.

Yes, please do post your song/music video on our facebook page  - just make sure that you email a copy to us as entry.

More fine print may be added as questions arise. . .
