Mini Schnauzer Photo Contest 2012

Our Mini Schnauzer Photo Contest 2012 has come to an end. We would like to thank all of our contestants for sharing such wonderful pictures and stories of your Mini Schnauzers with us. Our 2013 Miniature Schnauzer Calendar turned out beautifully:

Miniature Schnauzers 2013 Calendars


Big News:

Since we received so many wonderful Mini Schnauzer pictures (ie. way may than just 12), we have decided to add a few more photos to next year's calendar. So now you have even a greater chance of having your Schnauzer featured. However...

While each one of us is completely confident that our own Mini Schnauzer is the cutest most adorable dog in the whole world, we all are not great photographers. But capturing a winning picture of your Schnauzer is not that hard to do. This article: How to take great pictures of your dog will help you do just that. You may send us up to 4 pictures with your entry so choose wisely.

Take a few moments and enjoy some of last year's entries below and then when you're ready, click here for contest entry information and enter your Mini Schnauzer.
