Petfood manufacturer The Nutro Company's Greenies brand is hosting its inaugural "The Greenies Awards," an online video contest where participants compete for a chance to win a lifetime supply of Greenies chews or treats for their pets.
From June 13â€“29, pet owners can submit an original video less than one minute long of the creative things their pet will do for a Greenies treat on the brand's Facebook page. Cats and dogs are both eligible to be chosen as the winner in the categories of: Best Vocal Performance for a Greenies treat, Best Trick for a Greenies treat or Best Smile for a Greenies treat. A lifetime supply of treats will be given to the winner in each category.
A panel of judges will select five finalists in each contest category, and these finalists will then be scored by a combination of judges' votes and Facebook fan votes to select the grand-prize winners in each category.
More information, including contest rules, is available on the Greenies Facebook page.
