Thank you to all the DWDs who share your lives with our community on a daily basis. Your awesome photos provide a window into your world and make our community the amazing and addictive place you enjoy coming to every day.

Occasionally we encounter images we think are particularly special and want to feature outside our community. Since we are primarily a closed network, featuring photos provides a public face to our community and helps develop the DWD brand visually. We have a blast creating edited and branded versions of your photos, and we hear you love it too! At the same time, it's also an opportunity to cross-promote and bring some attention to you as well.

Features are defined as public sharing outside the Dudes With Dogs community, like on this website, Instagram, Twitter, and Tumblr. Since these are public locations, we typically ask permission first, usually in the comments of your post. Please respond back right away and if you are interested, submit your photo. We hope you consider it an honor to be included and associated with Dudes With Dogs®.

Please note that although you retain ownership of your originally submitted photo, Dudes With Dogs will own the resulting edited and branded image. Keep in mind that we will always credit or tag you whenever possible, but it's important that we own the branded photos so that we have the rights to publish them both online and offline.
