AAA, Best Western, Solicit Pet Travel Photos
AAA is soliciting pet travel photos for its annual Petbook.
Best Western has joined as the sponsor of the contest for the sixth consecutive year.
Through Nov. 30, travelers can enter a photo of their traveling pet for a chance to appear on a cover or inside "Traveling With Your Pet: The AAA PetBook."
Best Western, which has more than 1,600 pet-friendly hotels worldwide, is a natural partner, according to the travel agency.
AAA will judge entries on artistic qualities and ability to convey the joys of safely traveling with a pet. Candid photographs are preferred.Contest rules and entry forms are available on the AAA.com/PetBook Web site.
First- and second-place contest winners are featured on the back cover and spine of the softcover edition and in the opening pages of the digital edition. More than 40 finalists are pictured in a photo insert, and winners and finalists are also showcased on the AAA.com/PetBook photo gallery -- a virtual brag book for proud pet parents.
Additional prizes include cash, pet treats, and copies of the book -- and for the first-place winner, a $150 Best Western Travel Card.
The annually updated guide lists more than 14,000 pet-friendly AAA Approved hotels and campgrounds, along with pet travel tips, recreational opportunities and emergency vet clinics.
The softcover edition of Traveling with Your Pet: The AAA PetBook is available at many AAA and CAA offices and select bookstores. Digital editions also are available through online booksellers.
AAA and Best Western are promoting the contest on their respective Web sites. AAA is also using Twitter and Facebook to get the word out and encourage entrants.
