Children in grades one through three from across Monmouth County, New Jersey are invited to submit their animal stories to the Second Annual “Tails of Love” contest presented by the Purr’n Pooch Foundation for Animals and Small Factory Productions.
Has your child ever helped an animal in need of love, food, shelter or medical care? Would your child like to share a story or drawing about his or her best friend? Well, if the answer is yes, the Purr’n Pooch Foundation for Animals would love to hear all about it! Contest organizers are looking for creative, original stories and/or drawings from children who love animals.
The deadline for contest submissions is Thursday, April 19. Winners will be notified on Thursday, April 26.
“Tails of Love” is a joint project of the Purr’n Pooch Foundation for Animals and Small Factory Productions in support of the Foundation’s educational initiatives to promote the humane treatment and adoption of animals in need and distress.
Entries should be no longer than 1,000 words or the size of an 8 1/2” x 11” sheet of paper. Submissions will be accepted in all forms of media: pencil, crayon, paint, marker or computer-generated art. The sky’s the limit!
Entries can be emailed to Small Factory Productions at email@example.com or mailed to Small Factory Productions, 560 River Road STE-C, Fair Haven, NJ 07704.
A panel of judges representing the Purr’n Pooch Foundation for Animals and Small Factory Productions will select eight “Tails of Love” Contest winners and notify the winners by April 26th, 2012. Winners will then be invited to create an original animated short film with the Emmy Nominated creative team at Small Factory Productions in Fair Haven on May 5th and May 12th from 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Winners must be able to attend both workshops or forfeit their position.
Each winner will receive a DVD copy of the film and appear as special guests at the Purr’n Pooch Foundation for Animals’ “Tails of Love” movie premiere at “Paws for a Cause Day” at Pier Village in Long Branch on Saturday, June 2nd. The premiere is part of a full day of kid and pet-friendly fun activities at Pier Village.
