Always wanted to be a nature photographer? Just got a camera and want to show off your skills? Well, here's your chance!
Between now and the 22nd of November 2008, Leonard Bros. Veterinary Centre & Aricia Dog Training are looking for great photos in six classes, with the winners being displayed in the veterinary centre. Photographer John Harding, local artist Rosie Rees and the Leonard brothers, Tom and Steve, will be the judges.
The categories are:
Man's Best Friend (that's one we're familiar with...!)
Portrait of My Pet
Pets at Play
Animal Photo Junior (entrants up to 14 years old)
As you can see many of the categories aren't restricted to dogs so if you have other four-legged (or two, six or eight-legged!) pals in your menagerie / household, then there's no reason to exclude them from the fun.
To enter, send prints no bigger than A4 plus a £1 entry fee per photo to Aricia Dog Training, Bridge Farm, Whitchurch, SY13 3NE.
Cheques should be payable to Aricia Dog Training (Photo Comp), and an SAE should be included if you want your prints returned.
Proceeds from the entry fees will be divided between Blue Cross and Dogs Trust so you will be helping animals in need while indulging in a fun and creative hobby. Plus if you've already got lots of photos of your dog(s) that you'd love to show off, why not visit our community site, DoggySnaps, where you can do just that?
