You know your pet is the best-looking pet ever. Here's your chance to have its beauty captured forever in a stylish portrait.

If your submission for Veterinary Economics' Practice Tips, Veterinary Medicine's Idea Exchange, or Firstline's Pearls of Practice is selected for publication, you'll automatically be entered in our Pet Picassos Contest. One winner will be chosen each month from each of the publications. Winners will be chosen based on usefulness, creativity, and timeliness.

If you're picked as the winner, Pet Picassos will turn a photo of your pet into an approximately 24-by-36-inch canvas portrait in one of three styles: oil painting, pop art, or photo to canvas. See the example above or more samples at their Web site. This prize has an approximate retail value of $250.
