Think your pet has that certain “star quality”? Are you an accomplished photographer (or aspiring to be one)?  Then we invite you to enter the KDL Pet Calendar Photo Contest! 

Please ensure that your photo conveys a literary theme. The contest is open to all residents of the KDL service area.  

This is an online voting competition, where participants enlist the help of their family, friends and followers to cast online votes for their beloved pet in the hopes of having their pet be one of the top 12 to be featured in the printed KDL Pet Calendar.   

Photos must include a literary theme. Entries will be judged on creativity, quality and originality (not every photo needs to be inspired by Harry Potter). So, start snapping your high-resolution photos!  

The photo contest is open now and entries must be submitted via Submittable. Deadline for entries is August 11. If you need any assistance, please send an email to
