Expressions of Interest – Official Photographer

The 2018 Dogs SA Dog of The Year & Puppy of The Year contest will be held on Saturday evening 1st December 2018. Following the inaugural event in 2017, it is intended to be the most prestigious night of the year for the Canine Community in South Australia. In addition the Dogs SA DOTY/POTY Committee will conduct an All Breeds Championship Show as a fundraiser for this event on Sunday 2nd December 2018.

Expressions of interest are sought by the Dogs SA DOTY/POTY Committee for the positions of Official Photographer for the 2018 event.

Podium & Event Coverage – the Official Photographer” can either be an individual or lead a small team to enable a comprehensive coverage of the event. Minimum coverage is to be all “in Ring” activity and Podium coverage of the winners and runner ups, with the Judges and Sponsors. There will also be the opportunity for additional Podium shots on demand.

Photos will be published in Dogs SA Journal and Canine Media and must meet strict Dogs SA guidelines and timeframes for delivery to the Dogs SA Office.


Due to the large number of Exhibitors and Spectators, it is required by Dogs SA that all Photographers have the appropriate level of Public Liability Insurance. No other Commercial photography will be permitted as per Dogs SA Guidelines.

The Photographer/s must wear identification, either by wearing appropriate labelled Clothing or adequately sized Badges. This is to enable the Official Photographer/s to be easily identified. The Committee will promote “Official” Photographers.

The “Official” Photographer/s must have a public viewing platform, either a website or a dedicated Facebook Page open to all exhibitors to enable easy viewing and purchase of Photos.

An appropriate amount of images from the event, including winners and runners up, is to be supplied to   Dogs SA for event reporting and Canine Media use. An Online download facility is an alternative with details to be provided during the event or shortly after.
