2020 Tripawds Calendar Photo Criteria
We want this to be the best set of Tripawds calendars ever. Please read ALL details below before sending your pic!
Email your best photo to see your three-legged heroes and angels in a 2020 Tripawds Calendar. Send your one great photo no later than Saturday, October 12 at Midnight EST. That is the only way to get featured in one of the 2020 Tripawds Heroes and Angels Calendars!
Who can send a photo? And how?
- All registered Tripawds members and/or @tripawds followers and fans may submit one (1) photo of their three legged dog or cat.
- Photos of present-day Tripawds and/or those at the Rainbow Bridge are welcome too.
- Only photos showing three legged animals will be accepted.
- Got more than 1 Tripawd? No problem. Enter one photo per Tripawd, or send one group photo.
- Pictures of a Tripawd with a four legged pal are fine, as long as the Tripawd is prominently shown.
- If your Tripawd has been in a previous calendar, send a new photo.
You must also include the following information to be included:
- Name of your Tripawd(s) and any other pets featured in the photo.
- Male or Female?
- How long as a Tripawd?
Tripawds Calendar Photo Size Requirements
IMPORTANT: Follow the photo file requirements below. If your photo file size is too small for a full-page image, it may still be in a calendar. But it will be small and grouped with other small photos. Photos submitted at resolution file size unsuitable for print production will not be included.
Your one photo must be of suitable resolution to be printed in a paper calendar. Small photos look terrible in print.
- Minimum Image Dimensions: 2400 x 1800
- Landscape Orientation is best.
Want to make sure your photo will be included?
Your photo size must be at least 2400 x 1800 dimensions.
For example, this photo is not good because the dimensions are too small. A small photo like this looks terrible in print.
Where to Send Your Photo:
- Only photos sent by email will be accepted.
- Email ONE photo HERE to this email (“admin-at-tripawds-dot-com”)
- You will receive a reply to your email or post confirming your image file is suitable for reproduction.
If after emailing your photo you don’t hear back from us, contact us again to make sure we got it, or your Tripawd may not be included.
How to find your photo file size
On a Mac computer, view the photo and “Get Info” by typing “ + i” (Command I).
On a Windows machine, right-click to view image properties or hover your mouse over the photo in your Library or image viewer.
A few last words.
Please do NOT:
- Email more than one photo. We know that’s hard, but you can do it!
- Ask us to pick one for you. It delays production, we will not do it. Sorry.
- Request a specific month. Photos will be randomly placed throughout the year.
Photos sent by the 10/12/19 deadline will be included in one of the three 2020 Tripawds Community Calendars. Those received after the deadline will NOT. Thanks for understanding.
Calendars will be available for purchase in the Tripawds Gift Shop by November 1st.

I submitted this of Merry Myrtle. Pretty sure it will be selected as the cover for the calendar!😂🤣
Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!
I love it!!!🥰🥰🥰🥰
Hahahah! Great pic Sally!
OK even a laying down photo is good as long as you can see that there’s only 3 paws there. Just do your best and send em in.
We get that it’s hard to always show our Tripawds being Tripawds, based on the feedback we are getting. Probably gonna change that rule next year!
Hey Trikitties!!! Send your calendar pics! We will make a deadline exception for you so send your calendar pics!
We need 5 more Tripawd cats for a complete Trikitty calendar!!!
