It’s time to enter our Pets on Parade competition, back for another year in partnership with Picture Studios.

The competition is open to pet owners in Lowestoft and the surrounding towns and villages, with amazing prizes up for grabs for the winners voted in first, second and third place.

All you need to do to enter is book a photo slot at Picture Studios in Lowestoft town centre, buy a copy of this week’s Lowestoft Journal and fill out the coupon included with the competition details.

The winning pet in each of the three categories - dogs, cats and other animals - will be presented with a stunning 20in x 16in canvas wrap portrait of their pet, worth £190. And there’s great prizes on offer for the runners-up too, with a 10in x 8in framed portrait, worth £65, presented to the three pet owners in second place, and a 7in x 5in portrait, worth £50, for those in third place.

But even those that don’t win will still get their moment in the spotlight, as we will be publishing a special pull-out featuring photos of all the entries in The Journal for our readers to vote for the winners. And you can always pop into Picture Studios to order your own copies of the photos, with special offers running that week only.

Matt Goddard, owner of Picture Studios, said: “This is a great competition that we run every year with some brilliant prizes up for grabs.

“People really do love their pets and this is also a great chance to see your pets’s picture in the newspaper.”

To ensure your pet is in with a chance of winning, call Picture Studios on 01502 573154 to make an appointment to have your pet’s photo taken, or drop into the town centre premises at 117 London Road North in Lowestoft.
