This month photography competition is dedicated to our Lovable Pets, our friend’s pets, or just adopted ones for the picture.

It would be great to see pictures of animals showing a relationship with their owners, but you are welcome to submit a portrait of your animal friend too.

We are looking for activity/action shots, lovable expressions, relaxing time and having fun too! Dogs, cats, horses, chickens and all animals that we call our friends 🙂

As with all competitions remember about your composition. Try the few basic rules like filling the frame with your subject, the rule of thirds or leading lines, but most importantly have some fun with your animal friend.

It is easy to enter, and the competition is open to everyone. Entry opens on 1st June 2017 and closes on Friday 30th June 2017. We are looking forward to seeing your entries!!!
