Carmel, CA, August 16, 2017 - Make us laugh, cry, think, feel and hug our dogs! And you could win America’s 1st PAWlitzer Prize™ for Best Dogged LITTERature. Winners receive a pooch perfect weekend in dog-loving Carmel-By-The-Sea!
Carmel Dog Tales wants to read the most memorable adventure, comedy, or tear-jerker tale you’ve had with your pooch. The PAWlitzer Prize will be presented to winners in two non-fiction categories: Drama and Humor.
WARNING: Best-selling and celebrated writers muzzle your keyboards; the PAWlitzer Prize is for ordinary people with extraordinary stories to tell about their Best Furry Friend Forever.
Winners of the PAWlitzer Prize™ will be invited to read their stories at the Awards Ceremony, in Carmel, California, Saturday, October 14, 2017.
In addition to receiving America’s 1st PAWlitzer Prize, winners in Drama and Humor will receive:
* Two-night pooch-preferred luxury accommodations in Carmel
* Wine tasting and gourmet dinners at the most pooch praiseworthy Carmel Bistros
* A photo shoot on Carmel Beach
* Spa and grooming for your pooch, (humans can fix your own hair!)
* Custom Golden Paw jewelry, created just for our PAWlitzer Prize winners!
And for all Poets, Actors, and Performance Artists, the PAWlitzer Awards Ceremony will feature a PAWetry Slam™ contest. Send us a YouTube video – funny, tragic, or just plain outrageous! – and you may be invited to perform at the Awards Ceremony.
Deadline to enter the PAWlitzer Prize™ and/or the PAWetry Slam™ is August 27, 2017.
