It's that time of year again—time for our Portland Pet Pageant presented by DoveLewis Veterinary Emergency and Specialty Hospital.
If you don't know, our Portland Pet Pageant is—in our opinion—Portland's most prestigious pet competition. For the last two years, animals from all across the city have entered our pageant in hopes of winning the crown as Portland's Ultimate Supreme Pet. Last year, Sabah the cat won and graced our Pet Issue cover (publishing Jan. 29, 2020), along with other title winners that won over not just your votes but also our hearts.
Nominations are in, and it's time to vote! Scroll down to start voting now.
The pet in each title category that receives the most votes will be the title winner. And the pet that receives the most votes over all will be crowned our 2020 Ultimate Supreme Pet, featured on our cover!
Did your pet make it to nominations? Shamelessly campaign for your pet all over! Spam your friends' feeds, fill up our DMs, put up posters all over the city. We encourage it and love the photos—just make sure to use #pdxpetpageant and tag us on social, so we can see it.
If you're curious, here's how this whole contest works:
1. First, our readers nominated their pets. Nominations were open from Dec. 18–Dec. 29.
2. Our expert panel of judges then reviewed the submissions and narrow down to four finalists in each title category.
3. Starting on Jan. 3, we are asking our readers to vote for pets within each title. Voting is open until Jan. 19 to deliberate this important decision.
4. The pet in each title category that receives the most votes will be the title winner. And the pet that receives the most votes over all will be crowned our 2020 Ultimate Supreme Pet! This pet will be guaranteed to be on the cover of our Pet Issue. All across the city, this pet will be seen in their splendor and grandeur.
That's it! Vote below! (If you have any questions, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.)
