The “Pride in our Diversity” Photo Challenge

Few species offer as much diversity as the purebred dog when one considers the different jobs they do, the various sizes and colors they come in, and the various cultures that created them for a reason. National Purebred Dog Day, in fact, celebrates these glorious differences in our breeds.

The Challenge: We welcome back Betsy Copeland as a sponsor, and this year, she challenges photographers to interpret the theme, “Pride in our Diversity.”

The prize:  A 5″ x 7 ” Pewter/Copper Etching, “Rainbow Ribbon Canine” by Walker Works in the breed of the winner’s choice.  The image seen here doesn’t begin to do justice to these incredible etchings.
