We are delighted to announce that Liz and Steve Grayston have kindly offered to produce the 2022 calendar for us and would ask everybody who has adopted a Friends of the Strays of Greece dog or cat to enter a free photo competition so that your dog/s and cat/s have the opportunity to become one of the main 12 pictures in the calendar. You can enter a maximum of 20 photographs per dog or cat, and you have from now until the deadline of 10 pm on Sunday 6 June to submit your photos.

Photographs should be of the BEST POSSIBLE QUALITY and it is important that they are NOT CROPPED. It is also important that they are of YOUR CAT OR DOG ONLY AND DON’T INCLUDE PEOPLE.

Please send your photos, including your name and that of your dog/cat to Liz at the following email address by 10pm on SUNDAY 6 JUNE: [email protected].

Five independent judges will then choose their 20 favourite photos. Their choices will go forward to an independent final judge who will choose his/her final 12 photos – these will become the 12 months of the year in the calendar. Finally, after the 12 months of the year have been chosen, the 72 x £5 squares that surround the 12 main photos will go on sale. This guarantees your dog or cat appears in the calendar, and it also helps towards the printing costs.

We are really looking forward to seeing all your photos and would love some spring, summer, autumn, snow, Christmas and Easter entries. So, please get snapping and uploading so next year’s calendar is as spectacular as this year’s! Many thanks. Lyn
