Give us your best shot!

Retriever Life is excited to announce that we are sponsoring a Labrador Retriever photo contest for the Labrador Retriever Club’s 2013 National Specialty event.

Contest Details

It’s time to enter your best photos of your favorite Labrador Retrievers and share your love of the breed with the LRC Inc 2013 National Specialty. We are pleased to announce that www.RetrieverLife.com is the proud sponsor of the contest (Toni Leitao and Lorraine Yu, both members of the LRC and PSLRA, the host club for the National).

Groups (categories):

  • “Working” Group – Labradors doing what they’ve been bred to do (accompany their people in the field and retrieve game); doing their “job” whether it’s getting the newspaper, baby sitting, or being a service dog; and don’t forget performance sports (agility, etc.)
  • “Toy” Group – Labradors love to play and usually some sort of (favorite) toy is involved
  • “Non-Sporting” Group – Labradors love to relax and seem comfortable doing this anywhere and in any position
  • Puppy Group – Labradors pups love just about anything – eating, sleeping, learning, playing, etc.


  • Best in Show – $50 gift card
  • Reserve Best in Show – $25 gift card
  • Group Winners (1st place) – $10 gift card

Group Placements (2nd, 3rd, and 4th) will also be recognized. If the winner is not present, your prize will be emailed or mailed to you. Winning photos will be displayed at the LRC National Specialty.
