The Beneful® WagWorld™ Dream Dog Park Contest will run until June 18th 2010, and entrants should submit a video to the contest’s website to showcase their ideas for their dream dog park. The winner’s video will server as inspiration for a $500,000 renovation of a dog park in their area. The Grand Prize Winner, who will be selected by public voting from 10 finalists from 14 July to 10th August, will receive $5,000 cash and a year’s supply of Beneful® brand dog food. In addition to the Grand Prize Winner, nine runners’ up will each receive a year’s supply of Beneful® brand dog food.
The winner’s local dog park will be transformed by dog lover, design expert and television host Jason Cameron and pet expert and bestselling author Arden Moore. In September 2010 a celebration event will take place in the Grand Prize Winner’s hometown to reveal the blueprint for the WagWorld Dream Dog Park, and the newly renovated park will be unveiled in the spring of 2011.
"My dog CJ and I are best buddies and we truly love spending time together, whether it’s playing at the park, running errands or hanging out on the couch," said Jason Cameron. "I’m excited to see how other dog lovers enjoy life with their four-legged friends, and to hear their dreams to help create the ultimate dog park for their daily adventures together."
Dog owners across America can enter the contest from now by submitting a 2 minute video that answers the question: If you had $500,000 to create the ultimate dream dog park for you and your best buddy, what would you do? Entrants must also describe in 100 words or less how a makeover of their neighborhood dog park could enhance their daily adventures with their dog. The $500,000 renovation will be awarded as an in-kind donation to a public or non-profit dog park in the winner’s area.
