Rules for Participation
Color or black and white photos are accepted for all categories. The three available categories are:
- General Portrait Puppy
- General Portrait Adult
- General Portrait Costume
All photos must be taken by the person submitting the entry. The photo must contain a Brussels Griffon as the subject. No professional photos or show photos will be accepted. Photos need to be 8″x10”. The name of the participant, telephone number and email address and the category number you wish to enter (from the list above) should be placed on a label and adhered to the back of each photo submitted. The photos should not be signed as the judging is anonymous. Anyone can enter except professional photographers. Photo resolution of 300dpi is required so it can be reproduced by the American Brussels Griffon Association (ABGA). Entries must be received no later than February 15, 2018. The photos should be inserted in a plastic sleeve along with a cardboard photo protector and mailed as instructed below. ABGA will mat the photos.
Judging & Awards
Judging will take place at the 2018 ABGA National Specialty in March. There will be four awards in each category and a Best In Show photo by the People’s Choice. All winning photos will be used in an ABGA 2019 calendar which will be offered for sale in late 2018. Each award winner will receive a ribbon and the Best In Show winner will receive a rosette. There will be additional prizes for all first place winners and the Best In Show. You do not have to be present to win but we sure hope you attend.
