West Marine Dog Days of Summer Social Media Contest

Five $100 Gift Cards to Winning Pooch Photos.

Marlin is a lab and is officially FS member jimmy-d’s first mate, but is still in charge of the chill-meter.

West Marine, the world’s largest waterlife retailer, today announced its “Dog Days of Summer” social media contest. Starting July 29 and ending September 2, West Marine is honoring the water-loving dogs in our lives. We’re looking for pictures of pooches enjoying the breeze on the bow, taking a nap on the dock, playing in the waves or riding along on stand-up paddleboards.

To enter, post your photos through Instagram or Facebook facebook.com/westmarine. Each week during the contest period we’ll select a winning photo and the entrant will receive a $100 West Marine gift card that can be used to outfit your furry friend, your boat or yourself.

Contest Dates: Photo entries can be submitted between Tuesday, July 29 and Tuesday, September 2. Winners will be selected Tuesday, August 5, 12, 19, 26, and September 2.

Entry Process: Photos can be submitted through Instagram or Facebook. To enter on Facebook, post pictures to www.facebook.com/WestMarine with hashtags #dogdaysofsummer and #westmarine. To enter on Instagram, tag uploaded photos to WestMarineInc, with hashtags #dogdaysofsummer #westmarine.

Judging Criteria: Judges are looking for cute, fun photos of dogs enjoying life on or near the water. (Note: The dog in the photo doesn’t need to be owned by the entrant, but the entrant should have the rights to entered photos.)

Winner Notification: Winners will be contacted via the social media channel which the photo was submitted to. Electronic gift card will be sent by email.


Florida Sportsman Forum Members and readers should have no problem winning a lot of money from West Marine this summer judging by some of these photos. Check out the gallery below!
