We all love our pets – and now it's the time for your cats, dogs and other furry animals to show their star qualities in our annual Pets on Parade competition.

Every year, The Journal teams up with Picture Studios, in Lowestoft town centre, to encourage people to vote for the best pets.

The winners and runners-up receive some top prizes from the photography studio, based in London Road North – and truly become stars of the town.

But even those that don't win get their moment in the spotlight, as we publish a special pull-out featuring the pictures of all the entries.

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