The Voting for Lucky Dog Lottery Photo Contest has ended as of 12noon today.
Thanks for ALL the votes and support for li'l ol me, Travelin' Jack. We will know the Top 25 dogs on Monday, Feb. 7th. Stay tuned......
Here's what NM Lottery has to say about the contest:
Voting Ended Friday, Feb. 4, at Noon MT
Response to our contest was tremendous! Dog owners entered more than 4,700 photos. More than 100,000 votes were cast.
And the contest was a big hit in the new frontier of social media. Several dog owners and their friends used Facebook and YouTube to get out the vote.
The 25 finalist photos will be posted here on Monday, Feb. 7, by 4:30 p.m. MT.
Then the New Mexico Lottery will begin reviewing finalist photos to pick six furry faces to feature on the “Lucky Dog” Scratcher’s six tickets. Our choices will be based on a variety of criteria including, but not limited to, photo quality (sharp focus, good lighting, composition), diversity of dog breed and statewide representation.
The six dogs will be announced when the Scratcher launches in May.
Thank you for your support of the New Mexico Lottery. Since 1996, the lottery has raised $466 million for education and 68,000 college students have received Legislative Lottery Scholarships.
