Paws in the Park

Paws in the Park poster pooch competition

Paws in the Park, in aid of St Nicholas Hospice Care, will take place at Nowton Park, in Bury St Edmunds, on Sunday 21 May, featuring a host of activities and attractions perfect for dogs and their owners.

Now, with the help of the Bury Free Press, we are launching a competition to find a picture perfect dog to star on all the posters, banners, programmes and marketing materials for the event.

Upload your dog’s photo with the form below.

How to enter

If you think your pooch has the prettiest eyes, floppiest ears, fuzziest beard or widest grin, we would like to see it. Simply fill in the entry form below, making sure to attach a photo of your dog, to give your pet the chance to be seen across the region to advertise Paws in the Park.

The competition closes on Monday 6 March and the winner will be announced on Friday 17 March.

The prize

The winning dog will not only appear on all marketing materials for Paws in the Park, but its owner will win a 10 x 8 inch professional portrait of their dog and a family ticket (two adults and two children) for the event.

Last year’s competition judges were faced with a tough decision


Behind the scenes at last year’s photoshoot with winner, Lenny

I entered the competition last year because I thought it would be a lot of fun and I was interested to see if other people thought Lenny was as cute as I do. Lenny loved having his photograph taken and performing for the camera. A lot of dogs had entered the competition so it was really nice to think that other people think he is as cute as I do.

It was quite overwhelming to see him on all the posters, it seemed like everywhere you looked he was there. I was like a proud mum at school.
