Got a dog? Got a camera? Then you’re ready to take part to Mayhew’s World Animal Day photo competition!

World Animal Day (WAD) is “a social movement to speak up for animals that have no voice and to improve welfare standards around the world” – all objectives Mayhew shares.

“This year we are celebrating World Animal Day by inviting supporters and amateur photographers to take photos of their pets to celebrate this special occasion,” a Mayhew statement reads. “The photos sent over will be judged by renowned British photographer Rankin, who will choose winners from three categories including ‘Golden Oldies’, ‘Best Selfie’ and ‘Perfect Pawtrait’, and an overall winner.”

The rules to enter are simple:

  1. Take a photo of your pet to celebrate World Animal Day.
  2. Choose a category from ‘Golden Oldies’, ‘Best Selfie’ and/or ‘Perfect Pawtrait’.
  3. Share the photos with us using the hashtag #WADcomp on Twitter (@themayhew), Instagram (@themayhew) or Facebook (@mayhew) to be in with a chance of your photo being picked as the winner by Rankin, as well as being the cover star of our spring magazine next year.

Rankin will choose winners for each category, who will win goody bags, and an overall winner, whose photo will feature on the cover of our spring magazine.

There are no limits on the amount of photos that you can send for each category, so snap away! Just remember to send in your entries before midnight on World Animal Day, 4 October.
