What do you need to do to enter?
Entering the contest is pretty simple! You will need to snap a photo of your (or a friend’s/relative’s) Pet! Easy right? Well, there is a catch! The type of Pet you take a photo of does not matter, but you must include something Sims related in the photo with the pet. It could be a game lying next to them, a plumbob you make….anything at all really, long as its Sims!. The Sims item(s) must be in the photo, not photoshopped in!
Once you have finished taking a cute Pet photo, you can then upload the photo to any photo hosting website (Photobucket, Flickr, etc) and then paste a link here in this post!
The photo should be very creative, unique and fun! Maybe your Pet does tricks? Sleep funny? Walks funny? Snap snap snap the photo! The top 10 photos will be selected for voting after the first phase of the contest is over. Make sure your photo makes it!
