Dogs Outside The Ring’s “Your Dog as Art” Photo Challenge

Our dogs are beloved for so many reasons, but when we step back from the love and loyalty they give us, we come to realize how beautiful they really are.

Dogs Outside The Ring, a group that covers the international world of dogs, recognizes this, too, and as first time sponsors for an NPDD photo contest, they are challenging you to see your dog as a work of art. 

The challenge:

How do you display a beautiful work of art? Place in on a pedestal? Surround it with a beautiful frame? Put it under a spotlight? Your task is to present your dog as a work of art through your photograph. Our judges will pick their winner based on the aesthetic of your entry.

The Prize: Three “Dogs Outside the Ring” publications beautiful enough to present as “coffee table books,” but books you want to read and look at over and over again: The Treasured Breeds of Ireland, Little Dogs Big Impressions, and Artistry Of Dogs:



The Sponsor: Dogs Outside The Ring,
