Hi! So excited to enter in your contest! On the rules it says the photo will be judged on how well it matches the theme. What is the theme?

Thank you for your question, when we say theme, we mean the general giudelines for this contest which are to take a photo of your costumed pet in a “scene” that matches your pet’s costume. The scene doesn't have to follow specific theme, that's for you to decided. We hope to see you enter!
