Once you enter you will be provided with a link to share on social media to help you get as many votes as possible for your cute pet.

We have taken thousands of pet pictures in our different studios around the World and the competition is also open for owners who have had professional photos taken at a Venture Studio. To make it fair we will have 2 categories for the regional and overall winners:
Category 1. THE PROFESSIONALS: Photos taken in a Venture Studio
Category 2. PET OWNERS: Photos taken by pet owners
Regional winners for both categories. For each of our studio locations based on votes. Each regional winner will win a pet photography experience valued at £245.*
Overall winner judging: 5 entries will be shortlisted per studio region based on the number of votes for each category. A judging panel will choose from the shortlisted winners. The Super Cute pet winners (one for each of the categories- Professional and Pet Owners) will be chosen by the panel based on the following criteria:
- The judging panel needs to determine the cuteness of the animal, which is reflected in the image and this will be combined with any words under ‘caption’ to help judge the overall winner.
- The entry will be judged on its photographic qualities and overall cuteness factor of the image
The winner will receive £100 worth of Pets At Home vouchers (or international equivalent), a perfectly cute professional pet photography session, including a framed image from your photoshoot session valued at £550. One winner from the Professional and Pet Owner categories.
*Regional winners: If you have been in for a photoshoot within the last 12 months this prize can be substituted for an additional 10″ x 8″ framed image from your photoshoot.
