Time for 2023 Tripawds Cats and Dogs Calendar Photos!

This is one of our biggest fundraisers of the year. Tripawds dogs and cats’ best glamor shots are wanted for the 2023 Tripawds Calendars.

  • This is NOT a contest, it’s a FUNdraiser!
  • You can participate at no cost
  • Yes, you can send a pic of your Tripawd angel too.
  • Photos MUST CLEARLY SHOW that your cat or dog is missing a leg.

A limited number of calendar designs are being painstakingly produced by Tripawds own Admin Guy. In return for our efforts, all we ask is that you please buy loads of these calendars to support the Tripawds community.

Read the photo requirements below. Then send yours in by deadline. First come, first served. We cannot accept any additional photos after the deadline. Act now!

THE LAST DAY FOR PHOTOS IS SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 11 at 12 midnight, Eastern time. No exceptions, sorry!

2023 Tripawds Calendar Models Photo Requirements

SEND ONE GREAT PHOTO BY THE 9/11 DEADLINE. This is the only way to get featured in one of three 2023 Tripawds Heroes and Angels Calendars!

All registered Tripawds members and/or @tripawds followers and fans can send one (1) photo of their three legged dog, cat, or other animal from past or present. Here’s what it needs to look like:

  • Photos must clearly show that an animal is a Tripawd
  • Pictures of a Tripawd with a four legged pal are fine, but the Tripawd needs to be prominently shown.
  • Has your Tripawd been in a previous calendar? That’s OK! Just send a new photo.
  • Got more than 1 Tripawd? No problem! Enter one photo per Tripawd, or send one group photo.
  • Images must not include people or company logos or titles.

You MUST include your Tripawd(s) name, and the name of any other pets featured in the photo. If your submission is missing that information, your photo will not be included.

Tripawds Calendar Photo Size Requirements

Tripawds calendar cats and dogs

Where to Send Your Photo:

  • Only emailed photos are 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 you send your pic and don’t hear back from us, contact us again to make sure we got it. If you don’t, your Tripawd will miss out!

Qualifying photos sent by the 9/11/22 deadline will be included in one of the three 2022 Tripawds Community Calendars. Pics sent after the deadline will NOT be included. 

Your ONE photo must be of good enough quality (“resolution”) so it clearly reproduces when enlarged for a paper calendar. Poor quality images with small files sizes look blurry in print!

  • Minimum Image Dimensions: 2400 x 1800
  • Landscape Orientation is best.

Your photo size must be at least 2400 x 1800 dimensions.

For example, this photo is not good because the dimensions are too small.

Calendar Photo Bad Image
A small photo like this looks terrible in print.

IMPORTANT: Photos with sizes too small for a full-page image, might still be in a calendar. But it will be small and grouped with other small photos. Photos submitted at a resolution file size unsuitable for print production won’t be included.

Where to Send Your Photo:

 If you send your pic and don’t hear back from us, contact us again to make sure we got it. If you don’t, your Tripawd will miss out!

Qualifying photos sent by the 9/11/22 deadline will be included in one of the three 2023 Tripawds Community Calendars. Pics sent after the deadline will NOT be included. 

How to find your photo file size on a laptop computer

On Apple computers, view the photo. “Get Info” by typing “ + i” (Command I).

Calendar Photo Bad Image Get Info - Mac

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 tips.

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 are randomly placed throughout the year.

Question (s)…..and really sorry to bug you

Regarding dimension  detail:

Can it be larger than the minimum  listed?

       For example:   4120 × 3096

AND, if it’s a little smaller than the preferred dimension,  does it matter if the smaller number is first?  (Knowing that the smaller dimension may not be acceptable anyway) 

1580 X 2048

Also, through your techie magic, are you able to remove the light reflection  that shows up in the eyes if flash goes off?

Much thanks!!

Great! I just sent one through.

I wish I had a better camera so i understand if it’s not up to par, but I love this pic from today – she is now soooo comfortable and confident in her brace and harness gear and acts like she’s on safari!

In other words she’s a doggo totally engaged with life around her, acts like she could chase squirrels forever and was worth saving.

Good luck with the calendar.

Hi Jerry, No reply in my inbox or spam folder. 

Good luck with the calendar and I look forward to ordering a few to share with my wonderful rescue community in Paraguay. I think it’ll be both a practical and inspirational gift for themsp_hearticon2

Hey Carolina,
Sorry you didn’t get a reply. We’ve been having server issues and our emails are bouncing. Thanks for sending the photo and being part of this fun project!
