Submit your pictures to our 2023 calendar contest!

It's time once more to dust off your phone's camera lens: We're looking for your cutest animal pictures for this year's Get Ready Calendar photo contest! 

This year's theme is "Extreme Cuteness for Extreme Weather and Other Emergencies." That means we want to see your furry, fuzzy, feathery and scaled friends at their very cutest. Think impossibly tiny kittens, big puppy eyes, snuggly lovebirds or your pet lizard in his most adorable cowboy hat. Any animals go - but no humans, please! 

It's easy to enter this year's contest:

Step 1: Select your photo entries. Vertical (portrait) photos look best! 
Step 2: Open your email.
Step 3: Type our email address: getreadycontest@apha.org and include “Contest submission” in your subject line. 
Step 4: In the body of the email tell us your name, address, phone number and pet’s name. 
Step 5: Attach the largest file available and hit send!  

Check out our full rules and FAQs, then send us your photos! But hurry: This year's photo contest ends on Oct. 4. Winners will be announced in November. The calendar will be sent to APHA members with the January issue of The Nation's Health, and will also be available for sale before the new year.
