As online magazine Slate put it, “Nothing says summer like a dog on a porch,” so what better way to welcome the summer months than by unveiling the winners of our Porch Dogs Photo Contest.
Porch Dogs combines fine-art portraits of man’s best friend with beautiful architectural documentation of the Southern porch. We asked to see pictures of your Porch Dogs and we got a ton of amazing entries. You can browse through all of our received entries on Facebook.
After choosing ten finalists we asked for your votes in picking the winners and the results are in:
First Place: Four Golden Retrievers, Judge, Dixie, April, and Chipper, on a porch in Fairview, NC. Photo taken by Andrea Beeler of Hendersonville, NC.
Second Place: Magnolia, a half Labrador Retriver and half Walker Hound, on a porch in St. Francisville, LA. Owners are Allison McKiernan and Will Sheftall.
Third Place: Larry, a wire-haired Fox Terrier, on a porch in Asheville, NC. Photo taken by Beth Berry of Wakefield, RI.
Honorable Mention: Zibby, a Dalmation, on a porch in Knoxville, TN. Photo taken by Melissa McAdams.
Thank you for all of the great entries and congratulations to the winning entries!!
