2014 Bouvier Photo Calendar Contest

Our Bouviers aren’t just pretty faces that can run around a conformation ring or weave through agility poles or herd a flock of sheep or pull a cart or do a perfect sit stay. The photo contest is all about showcasing these wonderful dogs that enrich our lives in so many different ways. We invite you to share these special moments by entering the photo contest!

Selecting the Winners

The winning photo of each category will be featured in the ABdFC 2016 calendar with the People's Choice Winner on the cover. A beautiful streamer rosette custom made for the category of the photo will be awarded to each winner. The People's Choice winner will be chosen by ballot.
