“The contest and cover story aims to highlight how quirky and full of personality animals can be,” said Michelle McHardy, managing editor of PetFolio Magazine. “PetFolio is constantly focused on animals in our community and this is our most high-profile way of showcasing a pet that really stands out.”
“It’s also a great way to get kids and pets involved with a fun family activity,” added Landess Witmer, executive editor of PetFolio Magazine. “Our Oh My Dog! contest is not only a form of entertainment but it often gets the younger generation interested in photography and reporting. It’s up to them to capture what they love about their pets, and relay the information to our editor in a fun and interesting way. And when it comes to giving kids a sense of accomplishment, there’s no equivalent to seeing their story go to print.”
