About the 2022 Contest
The contest for 2022 Cairn of the Year is open for entries!
Join the fun and enter your best pal in our year-long photo contest to pick a Cairn of the Year.
Enter early. You can enter the contest any time during the year but the longer your Cairn is available for voting, the more opportunities she or he will have to be seen and collect votes.
Enter often. Because it's not uncommon to have more than one Cairn in a household you can enter all of your Cairn pals, up to four dogs. Sorry fifth Cairn, you'll have to enter next year.
Entry is free. Well free of monetary cost. If you are not already registered you will have to invest a minute of your time to register on the site.
Please set the title of your entry to the name of your dog.
Vote early and often. You can change your votes right up until the moment the contest ends (11:59 PM PST on 12/31). This year you may place two votes.
Pride is the Prize
The prize is nothing more than bragging rights, a silly trophy icon, and a place in our contest Hall of Fame.
