Photo Contest: Is Your Dog the Top Dog?

Upload a photo of your favorite four-legged family member and your pet could vie to become the Top Dog in Eastern Pennsylvania Patch-land.

Everyone knows their dog is the best dog. 

Now, Patch is giving you the chance to prove it.

We bring to you Patch's Top Dog contest.

Here’s how it works:

Beginning June 19, upload your favorite photo of your dog to this article (it’s super easy -- just make sure you are a registered user first). In the caption, tell us your dog’s name and what makes him or her so special. One photo per owner. 

You aren't a Patch user yet? No problem, just register by clicking here.

We'll accept entries for the Top Dog from June 19 to July 3.

Between June 19 and July 3, our users will vote in the comments on which dog is Nazareth Patch's Top Dog. So make sure you hit that social media campaign trail early! Share your post on Facebook and Twitter to gain more votes! The sooner you post your pup, the earlier you can start netting those votes!

On July 6, we will announce the winner of the Nazareth Patch Top Dog contest.

The winners of the local contests will then move on to a regional competition. The voting for that level runs from July 9 to 20, and again will take place in the comments section of that article (which will be posted on July 9).

On July 23, the five regional winners will be unveiled, and they will face off to become the Top Dog in Eastern Pennsylvania Patch-land from July 23 to 27. The winner will be announced July 30.

Look for great prizes at both the regional and Eastern Pennsylvania levels.

To vote, shout out the dog's name in the comment section below. And also include the owner's name (found in either the caption or the photo credit) so we can differentiate between dogs with the same name.

If a photo doesn't have a caption, shout out the number at the top right hand corner of the photo.
