Your dog could be a Tennessee Lottery scratch-off star

Tennessee LotteryTennessee Lottery: Your dog could be a Tennessee Lottery scratch-off starRating:

So you think you've got the smartest, sweetest, and downright most adorable pup in Tennessee?

Now is your chance to see if others agree.

The Tennessee Lottery is conducting a "Dog Days of Summer" photo contest through May 7 in search of the next "Tennessee Pup Star."

The lottery is inviting participants to send photos of their dogs (puppies or adults) and will select 10 of the "smartest, sweetest and downright most adorable" to feature on Instant Game tickets to be issued this summer.

Just think, your dog's face could be associated with great joy for Instant Game winners (and profound disappointment for losers who had unrealistic expectations about their lottery ticket purchases).

A few guidelines:

  1. Dogs only. You may think your pet tarantula is gorgeous, but the Tennessee Lottery is actually trying to entice people to buy tickets, not scare them half to death.
  2. Dogs must be the main focus. If your precious toddler has Fido in a choke-hold, just keep that to yourself.
  3. Photo must not be too dark, blurry, bright or flashy. You may recognize that fuzzy snout sticking out of the rumpled bedding, but to the rest of us it might look like a crime scene.
  4. Photos of at least 240 DPI are preferred. If you aren't sure what that means, Google can be your friend.

The entry form and official rules, as well as a gallery of submitted photos, can be found on the Tennessee Lottery's Facebook page.

            This topic is too funny.  Animals are smart pets no questions about it.  I wonder what the idea behind this is.

            I love pecans and making sales with commissions.   

            My amazon store is just like the lottery.

              If the President of the United States wants a friend he or she should get a dog.

               Lovely dogs so far on this thread.

                Facebook page, really.   I don't have Facebook and I haven't been on there in almost 3 years and I have better things to do than Facebook waste of time

                  Amazed that an adult could not understand a simple marketing tactic since most people love animals and have pets. Therfore, interest and publicity is created in the event.

                      Thank you!...me too!

                      I can still see Shaka looking at me really serious and I wonder if he was trying to tell me he had cancer because he had no symptoms up until the end and the Dr. said they hide it when they're sick & that he just couldn't cope any longer.

                      I guess I'll be making a trip to the animal shelter before long to get another cat...I think you need 2 so they can have one of their own kind to love & won't be lonely when I'm not home.

                        I agree. 2 at least. I have a nestcam and check in on them while at work.

                            I guess that no one cares if they're photos are used for  third party marketing from companies.  It's a shame that anyone who does social media doesn't realize a risk being taken. 

                             

                            So I guess some people will be shocked if companies "own" photos which social media does have a right to do what they want.  It's in the terms of agreement on all the sites.

                            I love pecans and making sales with commissions.
