In 2009 the Alliance initiated a contest to select the Face of the Alliance, a pet that will represent the Alliance throughout the year. It is now time to select the Face of the Alliance for 2022!
The first place winner will appear on our monthly e-newsletters and the Alliance website through 2022! The first place winner and three runners up will receive an Alliance t-shirt.

The Alliance’s determination as to whether the photo potentially violates the rights of any third party is final.
