Honeywell has launched a Twitter-based photo contest aimed at pet owners.
The makers of fans and air purifiers are asking consumers to submit a photo of their pet using its favorite gadget.
Each entrant must follow @HoneywellPlugIn on Twitter (at www.Twitter.com/honeywellplugin) and then tweet their photo to @HoneywellPlugIn using the hashtag #TechOutYour Pet.
The “Honeywell Hi-Tech Pet” contest runs through Sept 7 and the grand prize winner will receive a $500 Target gift card. Three runners-up will receive $100 Target gift cards.
The company is promoting the contest on a dedicated Facebook tab at http://www.facebook.com/HoneywellPluggedIn/app_448190101888439.
The page features some of the submissions, including a dog wearing headphones and listening to a boom box, a cat using a laptop with the Honeywell Facebook page featured, a cat using an iPhone and a dog with a cordless phone in its mouth.
Some suggested gadgets include fans, humidifiers, remote controls and TVs.
Pets using Honeywell portable appliances get extra points, according to the company. Actually, one grand prize winner and three runners-up winners will be determined on Sept. 18 by a random drawing from all eligible entries received by the end of the entry period.
Entrants may submit multiple photographs as Submissions, but each photograph may only be tweeted/submitted once. Re-Tweets are not eligible for entry as photographs must be original works.
Honeywell promotes its air cleaners as being effective on pet dander, including the Honeywell Pet CleanAir air purifier and the Honeywell Pet CleanAir compact tabletop air purifier.
