The Pet Issue 2023 Contest - The Bend Magazine


Our Pet Issue is right around the corner and we need your help. This year, we decided to switch gears a bit. We’re searching for Coastal Bend pets who happen to have an uncanny resemblance to their owners. That’s right, we’re looking for local pets and their doppelganger human owners. Dashing dogs, cute cats, loveable lizards, charming chickens…all pets are welcome!

Do you or someone you know fit the bill? Fill out the submission form below! Our editorial team will select finalists to be featured in the March 2023 print issue of The Bend. Finalists will be notified via email on Dec. 19, 2022, with the next step details. P.S. If you don’t look exactly like your pet, fear not. We’ll have a stylist to help you match the day of the shoot.

*PLEASE NOTE: If you and your pet are selected to be featured, both you and the animal will have to be photographed in a closed-set studio environment. Please keep this and the temperament of your animal in mind when submitting your nomination. Thank you!

Due to the nature of this year’s feature, please submit photos of the pet AND the individual who look alike.
