Show us your furry friends on Instagram

Kids are cute. But so are pets. We already have a Kid Pic of the Month contest. Now, we want to see photos of your dogs, cats and guinea pigs—even your iguana dressed like a witch.

The new Columbus Parent Cutest Pets contest features four categories: Cutest Dog, Cutest Cat, Cutest Critter and Cutest Costume.

Readers can submit contest photos via our new Instagram account, @ColumbusParentMag. Entrants must live in Central Ohio, and the photo caption must include the pet’s name, city of residence and hashtag #parentpets.

We’ll take submissions from May 10 to June 7, after which our editorial and photo staffs will review all the photos and choose a group of finalists. Readers will vote on those finalists online June 28 to July 19.

One winner will be named in each category. They will receive a professional photo of their pet, taken by our photo staff. Results will run in our October issue.

Read the rules before you submit that entry of your potentially prize-winning pooch—or parrot—on the contest page below.
