Submissions are being taken for Anderson Photographs' dog photos contest.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Humane Society of Washington County.

Award-winning photographer Melanie Anderson will hold 20-minute sessions to capture images for her upcoming 2011 canine calendar.

The cost for each session is $49 and a donation of $10 will be made to the Humane Society of Washington County.

The dog's owner will choose one photograph that will be placed online for a people's choice voting contest for the honor of being on the cover.

The winner will be announced Saturday, Oct. 30.

A panel of judges will choose winners in a variety of categories and one dog will be chosen for the cover.

This dog will then return for a photo shoot.

Owners are encouraged to bring props and costumes that they think will enhance the session for their dogs.

Anyone interested in participating in the contest should call 301-393-4515, or go to http://www.andersonphotographs.com and on its Facebook page.
