It’s Time to Submit Your Pet for D Magazine’s 2023 Cutest Pets in Dallas Competition

Pet parents, this message is for you. Is your pet the cutest in Dallas? Send in your pet pictures to find out.
By |

D Magazine once again wants the cutest candid pet shots you have in your camera roll. The Cutest Pets in Dallas competition is back for 2023. So show us your dog, cat, bunny, turtle, horse, goat, or mini-pig. Your four-legged friend just might win this year’s prize: a professional photo shoot and a page in the magazine dedicated to your pet. You can submit right here, right now.

There are two categories in this competition: editors’ choice and readers’ choice. The pet who receives the most votes from the public will be our readers’ choice winner. As for editors’ choice, the 20 pets that receive the most votes will be considered by our voting panel, which consists of D’s most esteemed in-house pet experts.

Voting begins June 20. You can vote all day, every day, and you’ll have a custom link to share with family and friends. Voting will close on July 9.

If your su-paw-star is crowned Dallas’ cutest pet, they’ll get:

1. A professional photo shoot with a D Magazine photographer.
2. A full page in an upcoming issue of D Magazine featuring a photo selected from the photoshoot.
3. An Instagram post on D Magazine’s Instagram, broadcast to more than 204,000 followers.

Contest entries are $25 and open until Sunday, June 11. (So get a moo-ve on and submit now!) A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Furry Friendzy, an animal rescue and wildlife rehabilitation organization.

If you’d like to skip the entry fee, you can do so by mailing an application to our office. This option is a little more work, but, hey, it’s free.

No purchase or payment of any kind is necessary to enter or win this contest. Be sure to carefully read these official rules; by entering, you will be bound by them.
