It's happening now!
PetPom's 2017 Pomeranian Halloween Costume Contest has begun... 
This is the 7th annual contest event, 
and we hope it'll be bigger & better than ever! 

You can nominate your Pom (yes, we are accepting nominations now, please see below).

And, of course, you'll have the fun of seeing adorable Poms
dressed up in all sorts of amazing costumes.

PetPom Members vote for the winners & winners receive fun prizes. 

But, the most important aspect is that everyone (Poms and humans) have a bunch of fun!~
How do I join in? 
We're glad you asked! 
Whether you'll be joining in by dressing up your Pom and/or you'll be taking
on the impossible task of choosing the winners, the first step is to
It only takes a few seconds & it's 100% completely free. 
Being a Member will allow us to send you important newsletters
with more details & updates. 

If you are already a Member, keep reading!
So, where does this take place? 
Right here! It's all online on this site. 
This way, everyone from around the country... and the globe, can join in! 
How does this work, exactly? 
The contest is now open for submissions (see below for details), you can email us a photo(s) of your Pom in costume. 
It can be homemade, store bought... cute, scary, anything at all! 

As we receive the photos, we will place them here on this page in a slideshow (see below). 

We'll stop taking submissions at midnight EST on November 4th (to give everyone time to send in pics taken on Halloween night).

Then, the polls will open! You'll come here, see all the precious Poms showing off their best Halloween looks... and you'll have the crazy task of actually having to choose the winners! 
Only Members will vote (5000+ Pom owners), 
via a Members Only Voting link that will be sent out to you. 
Are there rules I should know about? 
Yes, just a few:)

Rules & guidelines are as follows... 

And please take the time to read them; it'll help make everything
run smoothly for us, you, all the other Pom owners, and
the Pom contestants. 
1. This is not a contest for 'most expensive costume'. It's a fun event to marvel at how cute Pomeranians are when they are dressed up. Costumes can be as simple as a sheet to make a 'ghost Pom' or a pair of shades and a tie for 'Cool Business Pom'. 

2. The photo(s) you send in must be new for 2017. We cannot accept any that have been sent to us in previous years. 

3. Your Pom must be in a costume. For example, a photo of a Pom simply labeled 'Cutest Pom in the World' cannot be accepted. 

4. More about the photos: 

Please be sure that they are clear & in focus. 

You may send in up to 2 angles to show the entire costume (example, front view & side view). 

If you have more than 1 Pom (or dogs, or pets, or a baby, or kids, or if you want to join in), this can be a group photo, or your Poms can be photographed separately. 

See below for exact instructions on how to email us the photo(s). 
What is this I heard about categories? 
Ah, good you asked! 

Everyone will submit a photo(s) of their Pom(s) just once. 

Then, out of all of the contestants, voters will chose winners for categories. The 6 categories are: 

Best Costume (Winner and 3 Runner-ups, based on number of votes)

Costume Most Befitting the Pom (the Pom that's dressed up in a costume that really matches his appearance - coloring, expression, etc.)

Most Amusing Costume (the one that really makes you giggle)

Most Enthusiastic (the Pom that is really happy & going along with things, despite what was just done to him/her)

Cutest Costumed Duo or Group (If there are contestants for this, two or more Poms, or a Pom dressed up alongside other pets or other people that are also in costume)

Most Elegant Stance (the Pom that is posing like a true model!)
Are there prizes?
Yes! 
We sent out great prizes last year. This is 2016's Runner-Up, Cocoa Macaroon with her Crinkle Monkey prize...
pomeranian costume winner
(she won for being dressed up as a Sushi roll)...
And this year, the Winner of Best Costume, 
the 3 Best Costume Runner-Ups, and Winners
of all 5 other categories get to pick from our top recommended 'stay-busy' toys! 
These are awesome for when home alone or any time your Pom is a bit bored! See below for details. 
Prize details: The Winner of Best Costume will have a choice of 2 of the 4 prizes. All other 8 winners will have a choice of 1 of the 4 prizes. 
The 4 prizes consist of toys that are awesome for when a Pom is home alone, 
or for anytime that you want to keep your Pom busy:

The Pet Qwerks Talking Babble Ball. This amazing toy interacts with a puppy or dog by speaking 20 funny phrases! It responds to any sort of touch, and shuts off when it's not in use. When a Pom has this, they feel as if the toy is truly playing with them. 
The Pet Qwerks Animal Sounds Babble Ball. This works in the same way, but makes 20 different cute animal sounds. This will keep a Pom super entertained with goats, ducks, another dog, chickens, pigs, frogs, and more! 
The Busy Buddy Barnacle Treat Dispensing Toy; this is a super helpful treat dispensing toy that is small enough for even tiny Poms, but also comes in larger sizes for larger Poms! Has 3 different bobbles that each hold kibble. It's an awesome way to offer food while you're away! 
The Multipet Look Who's Talking Parrot Dog Toy. This is a super colorful, cute parrot that lets out parrot noises. Never knew that a Pom and a bird could be best friends? With this, they will be! 
Please note that if a winner is outside of the continental US, PetPom may substitute the prize for the cash equivalent paid via PayPal. But most important, EVERY POM is a winner for being so darn cute, for letting their humans dress them up, and for bringing smiles to us all!
