Nominate your pooch for our 2019 calendar
Each year since 2002, the TurfNet Superintendent's Best Friend Calendar has showcased 14 golf course dogs and their tireless contributions to golf courses across the country and around the world.
It is that time of year to once again nominate your canine friend for a place in the next TurfNet Superintendent's Best Friend Calendar, presented for 2019 by Syngenta.
Some tips to improve your chances of winning:
> Shoot at your camera's highest resolution setting.
> Images should be taken in a horizontal format; we can't use vertical photos.
> Get down to the dog's level; don't shoot down at them from a standing position.
> Fill the frame with the dog as much as possible, but try not to center your dog in the frame. Left or right orientation often can result in a more dramatic photograph.
> Avoid clutter and distracting backgrounds.
> If your dog is on a leash, take it off for the photo.
> A scenic course background is fine as long as the dog is featured prominently.
> All dogs must belong to the course or to a course employee and spends significant time there. Submit your best photo; multiple entries are discouraged.
A panel of judges will select the 14 dogs for the calendar, including the cover and December 2018. To nominate your dog, click on the online submission form and be sure to include the dog's name, age and breed; photographer's name; owner's name, phone number, email address; and the name and location of the golf course where the dog and its owner work. Deadline for nominations is July 31.
