aww! i wish you would have told me about this sooner! I have some great pictures of my pets =) Oh well next time! i'll keep my eye out! but great contest/idea!

I'm so sorry! I think I posted it about the time you joined WonderHowTo and started your photography world. I'm sure there will be more pet photo contests elsewhere. I have loads of pet pictures (like those on this post), but I missed entering too. What I like about Lafango is the cash prizes but no entry fees. I just learned about them so haven't had a chance to get a feel for their site yet but at a glance, I don't think there is as much competition as on some other no-entry fee sites that get thousands and thousands of entries.

oh wow really?? So basically if you've got a good picture you have a decent chance and they really pay out? I had no idea about this website!
how do they get the funding for the prizes? do you know?

Whoa! I just went to contest page to see how many submissions were there now and found that their deadline has been extended to February 27th! I will update the listing shortly but check it out! You can view all the other entries. There's about 400 at the moment. You should enter!
I believe the prizes come from sponsors of the various contests. They don't just have photography. Part of the contests usually includes a community vote phase. Let me know if you enter! It will give me a good reason to make time to sign up so I can vote. :) Once I get signed up, I know I will have to enter some of their contests.
