The Orvis Cover Dog Photo Contest has been a tremendous success in so many ways. Orvis customers have consistently topped themselves and amazed us here at the home office with their incredible photographic talent (not to mention their incredibly photogenic dogs). We’ve received more than 30,000 photos since we began running these contests, and the photos still continue to roll in. You can see ALL of the entries from last year’s Orvis Cover Dog Contest here.
But it’s our collaboration with Morris Animal Foundation’s Canine Cancer Campaign that really makes the story. The voting attribute of the contest, in conjunction with our donation page, has helped raise more than $300,000 for canine cancer research—and half of that sum was raised in 2010 alone! This awe-inspiring display of generosity, achieved dollar-by-dollar and vote-by-vote, has been driven solely by your unconditional love for the dogs in our lives.
We sincerely thank everyone who’s helped make this contest what it is. And if you’ve yet to enter a photo in the contest or donate to the Campaign, fear not, there’s no better time than the present.
