The National Dog Portrait Awards

The National Dog Portrait Awards, In search of the nation’s most photogenic dog.

To enter fill in your details here and we will be contact shortly.


The National Dog Portrait Awards is a new photography competition open to dogs and their owners across the UK. We’re on a mission to find the nation’s best professional dog portrait and most photogenic pooch. Whether you’ve got a Poodle with oodles of personality, or a debonair Doberman, we want to see them captured in all their glory.

But it’s not just glory that you and your furry friend will win. There are fantastic prizes for the best three portraits, including a top prize of £1500 cash and a £500 framed print of your photo.

Entry costs just £10 and all profits will go to UK dog charities voted for by you.

The competition kicks off in January 2019, with a deadline for submissions the following September. Once all entries have been received, we will select the best 250 for a people’s vote on social media. This will give us our final shortlist of 50.

The three winners will be chosen by an expert judging panel and announced in October 2019.

We’re offering cash prizes for the winner and two runners up. The top dog and their owner will receive £1500 cash, with an additional £1000 and £500 for second and third spots.

All winners will receive a £500 canvas of their portrait. The photographers who take the three winning portraits will also get their own prizes.

Your pet comes into Photo Stoke for a mini Photo Shoot. You then select a photo to enter in to the awards.

Please Note a £25 refundable deposit is required at time of booking to secure the booking
