Hoboken Girl’s 1st Annual Puppy Photo Bowl 2021 — NOMINATE YOUR PUPS!

Written by:

Superbowl takes February by storm, but if you’re an animal lover, you know there’s not just one type of bowl. Thanks to Animal Planet‘s genius concept, Puppy Bowls are now a thing — and so of course, we had to create our spin on the event.

We are thrilled to announce Hoboken Girl’s 1st annual Puppy Photo Bowl Contest 2021 — an interactive contest for our readers that will crown one dog as the winner {of some amazing local prizes!}. We will be donating a portion of the sponsorships to Wise Animal Rescue.

The contest takes place between Sunday, January 31st, and Sunday, February 7th — and here’s how it will work:

What It Is

Our version of Puppy Bowl is a Puppy Photo Bowl Contest — starting January 31st when you can submit your cutest pet photo.

A photo of your dog {in their best outfit or just as cute as can be in their birthday suit} can be submitted between January 31st and February 3rd, 2021 via the form below or to hello@hobokengirl.com.

On Saturday, February 6th, the top seven finalists in the Puppy Photo Bowl chosen by our team will be announced on Hoboken Girl for everyone to cast their votes for their favorite pup — and one lucky pup and human winner with the most votes will be announced on Monday, February 8th.
