Dog Calendar Competition
September 1, 2020
Think your dog is fit for a calendar shoot? In Worcester, it’s not a far-fetched goal.
Worcester’s Redemption Rock brewery is bringing back its dog calendar competition, with submissions for the 2021 calendar open through Sept. 30.
The brewery off Shrewsbury Street held its first competition last year and 100 people submitted their pup for a spot in the calendar. Nearly 4,500 people voted online to select the 12 winners.
Anyone who wants to submit their pet this year can bring their dog to the taproom and fill out a short questionnaire. A Redemption Rock team member will take the pooch’s photo.
After all submissions are in, online voting will take place in October. The 12 dogs that receive the most votes will get a dedicated month in the calendar with professional glamour shots.
Redemption Rock said employees will sanitize pens in between submissions. Mask and social distancing rules apply. A pet photo can be taken outside if preferred, the brewery said.
Calendars are expected to be for sale in December. A portion of the sales will benefit NEADS, a company that provides service dogs to people with disabilities, Redemption Rock said.
