There’s an old saying that eventually, people and their pets will start to look like each other. (Or is that spouses? Either way, it’s something/one you live and go on walks with.) But once that happens, what comes next? You can either ignore it and move on with your life, or really lean into it, and take (and obviously post) photos of the two of you side-by-side, showcasing your resemblance.
If you fall into the second category, there’s another option (at least for the moment): Using one of your photos to enter a contest. The prize is $1,000, which—let’s face it—can buy a lot of treats (for both of you). Here’s what to know and how to enter.
Officially, it’s called the Pet Doppelgänger Contest, and it’s sponsored by Shane Co. We’ll get into the specifics of how to enter in a minute, but as we mentioned, the contest involves submitting a side-by-side photo of yourself and your pet. We don’t want to know what prompted this rule, but the contest stipulates that “graphic content will not be tolerated” in the photo of you and your pet, and disregarding this rule is “grounds for immediate disqualification.”
There is one more thing—and you have to read through all the contest’s terms and conditions to find it: “The winner will be required to complete certain tasks designated by Shane Company. If the winner does not follow through with the tasks required of them, they will not receive the prize of $1,000.”
There’s no word on what those tasks involve. And, like most of these contests, by entering, you’re agreeing to the use of your name, image, and video in any Shane Co. publicity material if you win. Otherwise, “any personal data relating to the winner or any other entrants will be used solely in accordance with current federal and state data protection legislation and will not be disclosed to a third party without the entrant’s prior consent.”
Anyway, if you win and complete their tasks, you’ll get $1,000.
How to enter the contest
In order to be considered, you must be at least 18 years of age, and a U.S. citizen or permanent resident. To enter, you’ll need to submit your photo in the comments section of a page of the Shane Co. website, which means you’ll first need to register for an account. Then, click the image icon to the far right of the comment box to upload your photo, and include your name, email, and birthdate in the text boxes provided.
The deadline to enter is Friday, December 17, 2021. A winner will be selected and notified by January 3, 2022. The contest rules also mention that the deadline for voting is December 27, 2021, but don’t provide any additional details on whether the winner is determined (or influenced) by a public vote—other than that the decision is ultimately up to Shane Co. Good luck!
