2018 Pet of the Year Photo Contest

Best Dressed Photo Contest

Congratulations to our winners!


Nomination Period: October 22–November 7
Nominate your dog, cat, fish, bird, or other St. Louis-based pet by tagging a picture of it with #SLMpets on Instagram or by uploading it below. You may nominate multiple pets, but multiple nominations of the same pet are not allowed. Instagram photos must be posted on or after contest start date, October 22, and #SLMpets must be included in initial photo caption to be automatically entered. All nominations are reviewed by SLM staff before they are published on our site, so they will not appear immediately after submission.

Voting Period: November 8–18
Select one pet that you think deserves to be crowned Pet of the Year. You may vote one time during this period.

Pet of the Year Winner Announced: mid-January
St. Louis Magazine's February issue will include a pet guide, featuring photos of the pet that receives the most votes.
