Want to win a $1,000 CASH? Join us for our 4th Annual Trekell Juried Pet Portrait Competition!
Loyal. Obedient. (Wo)man's Best Friend.
Our pets are our companions. Our confidants. They let us laugh, they let us cry. They never judge and are always there when we need them.
One of the bright sides of the past year has been the amount of time that we have spent with our pets. They became our studiomates, our officemates, our classmates and in some cases, the only family members that we were able to see. Thank goodness for our furry, feathered, scaly friends! We’re not quite sure what we would have done without them.
As the world opens back up, let’s honor these unsung heroes. Please join us for our 4th Annual Trekell Juried Pet Portrait Competition.
To enter, all you need to do is purchase one of our official 2022 Pet Portrait Panels and create your entry on it!

Each entry will have 2 chances to win: Overall and Media Categories.
When submitting your entry, you will select your skill level and media choice. When doing this, you will be entered into both categories (Overall and Media) to be judged. You will only be able to win in one category.
Overall will be judged prior to the media categories, which means you have a chance to win cash before the supplies! After the Overall winners have been selected, they will be removed for the second round of judging and will not be able to win additional prizes.
Each person can only win once. However, there is no limit as to how many panels may be purchased and entered.
This is a juried art competition and prizes will be awarded based on skill and creativity. This is not a lotto where winners are chosen at random. Your entry into the competition is your purchase of an official 2022 Trekell Pet Portrait Panel. All entries must be submitted by August 31st, 2022.
Please email us with any questions you may have about the contest. Good luck! Have fun! We look forward to viewing all of the entries and would like to thank you in advance for participating!
