The Dog Writers’ Association of America is holding its annual Writing Competition. Entries cover 50 dog-writing categories and the deadline for entries is September 6, 2014. Winners receive the prestigious Maxwell medallion, and cash prizes are given for our Special Awards. Winners will be announced in February, Westminster weekend, at our banquet in New York. The contest is open to all writers, editors, publishers, photographers, artists and others whose work falls into the designated competition categories. Entrants do not have to be DWAA members, but work must be published in print or online. For further information about entering, check out The Dog Writers’ Association website.
