Entry Deadline 11/30/2020
Submit your favorite videos of your FurKids!
Since 2002 we have held an annual fundraiser, the Bichon Bash, to both thank our wonderful adopters and volunteers and to raise funds for bichons in need of rehoming and care. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to postpone the 2020 Bash.
While we will miss you and your FurKids more than words can say, we want to “stay connected” in a different way. We also need to raise money to continue our mission of rescuing bichons.
Starting October 10th, and running through November 30th, we we will be accepting entries for our 2020 Video Contest in 5 categories:
- Cutest: FurKid interacting with friends and family
- Funniest: FurKid that makes you Laugh Out Loud… LOL!
- Playtime: FurKid blitzing, in water/pool/lake/ocean, with favorite toy, playing with other FurKids
- Most Obedient: FurKid showing how smart he/she is (sit, say, roll over, play dead, shake, wave, and more)
- Most Mischievous: FurKid getting into “trouble”, stealing clothes, hiding things, stalking, etc.
The entry fee/donation for each video submitted is $25 and you can choose any category or multiple categories for your entry. Entries should include bichons, bichon mixes and any FurKid adopted through BFK. A panel of judges will review the entries the first week of December and the winners will be announced on December 6th.
Prizes for winners include gift baskets, gift cards and, of course, posting the winning videos on the BFK website and YouTube. There will be a first, second and third place winner for each category.
