Frequently Asked Questions

Why do you send me a confirmation email, with a link for me to click?

We do this to validate that your entry is genuine, and not from someone else copying your email address.

How much is it to enter?

Entrants are encouraged to make a donation, in lieu of an entrance fee. The minimum donation on JustGiving is £2.

Are there any particular formats or restrictions for the photos or video clips?

Photos and video clips must have been taken within the last 3 months.

Video clips must be no more than 15 seconds long, and no larger than 64 MB. MP4 and Apple MOV (H.264 or HEVC/H.265) files are supported.

We cannot accept HEIC photos, as created by Apple iOS devices (iPhones and iPads). Your device will probably convert the photo automatically to upload it. But if you have transferred it somewhere else first, you may need to convert the HEIC to JPEG yourself before uploading it with your entry.

Can I enter my pets into more than one class?

Yes, you can enter any or all of the classes. The entries may be for the same pet, or different pets.

Can I make more than one entry in a class?

No, you can only enter once in a class. If you make a second entry, it will replace the first one.

What animals can enter?

Any and all – small, large, furry, scaly, exotic.

I don't live in the United Kingdom; what will happen if I win?

We will post winners' rosettes worldwide, and pay the equivalent cash prize in your local currency.
