Design a Pet 2021!

Happy New Year! A new year calls for a new pet design contest! We would like you to design a new Webkinz Classic pet that will be sold by Ganz eStore starting on Webkinz Day – April 29, 2021!


Here’s how it works:


Between January 1 and 31, design a pet that you think would make a great addition to Webkinz World! It can be any kind of pet you like! You can use one of the templates provided below or you can create your own drawing. You can enter as many times as you like!


You can use any kind of art supplies that you want – markers, pencil crayons, crayons, or other art materials. While we will not accept images that have computer generated patterns or graphics copied and added to them, participants may use programs like Paint or Photoshop to color and draw freehand. We can’t accept submissions with company logos or sports team emblems. Please make sure you save your images as a jpg, gif, or png.


You don’t need to include a suggestion for the pet’s PSI and PSF but you can if you want!
Submit your drawing to the Pet Design 2021 Gallery in the Share Center by January 31, 2021.
Wait until February 7, 2021 to see if your design is one of the 10 finalists.


The winner will have their design turned into a real virtual pet in Webkinz World and they will receive a code for their pet when it is added to Webkinz World. They will also receive a 1 Month Deluxe Membership to Webkinz, a virtual Pet Design Trophy, and all ten finalists will each receive a 6 pack of 2021 Winterfest Cookies, courtesy of Ganz eStore.

    Hello! I posted 6 drawings to the share center yesterday. How long does it usually take for the drawings to be moderated? I have never done this before. Thank you for clarifying. I think this project sounds like fun!

      I submitted a design yesterday too! I found with past contests that it can take up to a week for the moderators to upload photos to the Sharecentre, but my pet designs have all made it within 2 days so far with this contest.

    Help vote for my design! I submitted a hand drawn and a digital version soon to update! My design is the real-life Vaquita! The most endangered marine mammal in the world! Fewer than 10 left! I want to help spread awareness and Webkinz is the perfect educational platform to do so! Help save the Vaquita everyone! Love-beachbumm5
