What are the categories?

We are not announcing these until we launch that week’s category on Friday. We are trying to ensure each category will be open to all dogs to enter, so keep checking the Facebook group each week to see what the new category will be. There will also be an opportunity to help us decide what upcoming categories will be via polls on the group.

What criteria will be used to judge the winner?

We will provide some criteria for each category to help you get the perfect pooch pic and give you the best chance of succeeding. Read our guidance for how to take prize-winning pictures of your pup from our behaviour team.
