We all love our pets, that’s for sure. But have you ever taken a photo of them and thought “wow, you are a star and so photogenic”?

‘Instagram famous’ isn’t just for people anymore. There’s now an abundance of pet accounts, and it’s on the rise. Profiles such as Errol the Somali Cat 122k followers, Hector The Sausage Dog 64.4k followers and DJ Bunnypuff & The Puffery 28.9k followers, are taking the Instagram world by storm, do you think your pet could have what it takes to be Insta famous?

If you’re passionate about your pet, and think that they have the winning looks, attitude and personality that could shine through on the Instagram screen, our ‘Most Instagrammable Pet’ competition is for you.

Whether you’re a pro photographer or taking a quick snap on your phone we’d like you to share your most Instagrammable picture of your pet. We can’t promise instant Insta-fame, but you could be in with a chance of winning a £350 Amazon voucher.

What does the competition entail?

This competition is open to all pet owners and budding photographers alike. We’re asking you to enter exclusively via Instagram, by submitting the most ‘Insta-worthy’ picture of your pet.

The competition will be judged by Specialist Pet Photographer Katrina Wilson, who has more than 1.2k Instagram followers, and over eight years’ experience—during which time she has photographed thousands of pets.

We have £550 worth of Amazon vouchers up for grabs. The lucky winner of this competition will receive a £350 Amazon voucher, while the runner-up will receive a £150 Amazon voucher and third place a £50 Amazon voucher to spend on your pet or yourself—you decide.

What kind of pet picture are we looking for?

We want to see your pet shine in all their glory.

Whether they are grinning a big smile, captured doing a showstopping trick or just casually being candid, we want to see the side to your pet that you love the most.

As long as the picture includes your pet showing their personality, we want to see it!
