2010 Pet Portrait contest to benefit the Bangor Humane Society.

Bangor, ME, April 14, 2010: Studio 36, a photography studio of downtown Bangor, is pleased to announce their first annual Pet Portrait Contest to benefit the Bangor Humane Society. All pets are welcome to participate – from cats to iguanas to horses.

To enter the contest, pet owners need to make an appointment to have their pet photographed by Studio 36. They will be asked to give a donation to the Bangor Humane Society of any amount greater than $5. The pet owner may then choose which picture from their pet portrait session that they would like to enter in to the contest. All portrait sessions must take place before Monday, May 17th. Please call 385-3940 to make an appointment.

The winners will be chosen by public voting. All pet photos will be on display throughout Studio 36 – at 128 Hammond Street – for public viewing beginning Monday, May 24th. The Studio will be open to voters each evening from 5-7pm beginning Monday May 24th through Friday May 28th. Winner will be announced on Sunday, May 30th. Each vote will cost the voter a .25 cent donation to the Bangor Humane Society. The pet photo with the most votes wins.

First prize will include a portrait package from Studio 36 (to be used for people or pets) valued at $150. The winning pet’s picture will also be featured in the Bangor Daily News.

Second prize is a $75 Gift Card to Pet Quarters, 744 Stillwater Avenue in Bangor. Third prize is an original art work portrait of your pet by D. Marie of Brewer, ME.

Pet owners are also able to purchase copies of their session photos from Studio 36, with a portion of the sales also going to the Bangor Humane Society. Thanks to all who choose to participate. / 207-385-3940
