This global funny pet photo competition was created by Paul Joynson-Hicks and Tom Sullam to celebrate the positive and vital role that pets can have in our lives and to encourage and raise awareness about animal welfare in general, by supporting a different grassroots charity each year.
Thanks to its partnership with Animals Friends Insurance, this year the competition will be donating £10,000 to Animal Support Angels a very special animal welfare charity that supports pets and pet owners by providing food, shelter, warmth, veterinary support, re-homing and animal welfare care to relieve the suffering of animals.
The Category and Overall Winners will be announced in November, with the top image winning a huge £2000 cash prize, a goodie bag and a beautiful bespoke trophy.

#4 Jurassic Bark by Carmen Cromer
My golden retriever, Clementine, loves to stick her face in front of the hose while I water the plants. Her expression in this photo made me think of a tyrannosaurus rex, hence the title, Jurassic Bark… duh nuh nuuuh nuhnuh, duh nuh nuuuh nuh nuh, dun duh duuuh nuh nuh nuh nUUUUUUhhhh.
#5 Sunbathers by Catherine Falls
Barbara Ann wants to sunbathe too
#6 Those Ears by Charlotte Fenwick
Rayna is a rescue dog, who spent the first years of her life fending for herself on the streets of Romania. We rescued her in 2019, and are entertained by her quirky ways every day. Everyone who meets Rayna falls in love with her, and we think her ears have a lot to do with that!
#7 Hugo the Photobomber! by Chloe Beck
This is my best friend Faith and her husband Alex… And their cheeky Sproodle, Hugo. Faith wanted a photograph to mark a special occasion – her first outing after shielding at home for 14 months. Hugo jumped into the frame at just the right moment! He’s a lockdown pup, so he hasn’t quite gotten used to the excitement of being around other people yet hehe 🙂
#8 Boing by Christine Johnson
I was busy playing with my dog on the beach and this dog came to play. I liked the shapes he was making in the air.

#12 A Warm Spot on a Cold Day by Corey Seeman
Two of the morning regulars at the dog park are Gary (hound mix with the jacket) and Kona – who is one of the most chill dogs ever. Got this picture of Gary finding a warm place to sit on this cold winter’s day – February 9th, 2021.
#13 Caught red-pawed by Danielle Wood
This is my very mischievous Bengal cat, Bailey! On this particular day I was trying to put away the washing but he would do whatever it took to get those all important belly rubs!
#14 Never ending Poodle by Darren Hall
This is Ted the Poodle. I’m pretty sure he has never seen the film but the amount of people who comment that he looks like Falkor from Never ending story would suggest he may be a fan.
#15 Cheeeese! by David Poznanter
Oak on a windy day showing off his pearly whites!
#16 Crazy in love with fall by Diana Jill Mehner

#18 My big brother by Elizabeth Finney
Our kitten Lola just loves her brother snoopy so much she doesn’t leave in alone!
#19 Home skooling by Jacki Gordon
Ollie, highly focused on what else he can learn from a dog behaviourist’s website (which, as you can see, features a mugshot of him). While Ollie is committed to ongoing personal development, he’s not quite mastered how to use the mouse , but – being a very smart border collie – that’s just a matter of time……
#20 “…That was a good one!!” by
This photo was taken by accident during the photography of my ex-girlfriend with her beloved mare. For this cheerful moment, I thank the fly that sat on the horse’s nose and he instinctively shook his head. And so it seems that the humor between a horse and a woman is definitely not missing :)).

#28 Muttford and Chum by Luke O’Brien
Losing the opportunity to play with my human band mates during lockdown, Flint my rescue dog soon taught me that we didn’t just have sharp bones in common, but musical ones too. He soon became the perfect substitute for a collaborative stomp up at home, so much so that we felt we deserved our own band name (Muttford and Chum). With my camera set up remotely during this shoot, I think it’s fair to say that the image is proof that his conviction as a performer matches my own – well, we were covering “treats and tugs and dinner bowls” by Ian Puli and the Boneheads.

Little Nuka playing hide and seek one day at the beach

#35 The Eureka Moment! by Sophie Bonnefoi
Cutie and Speedy are 2 chicks hatched from eggs placed in an incubator at home in August 2020. They spent their first few weeks indoors. On the photo they are just over 2 weeks old. They were curious about everything. This is the day they discovered their own shadow. It was hilarious to see them wondering and exploring that “dark thing” that was moving with them !
