Logo for the comedy pet photo competition

Blue Cross has been named as the chosen charity of the Mars Petcare Comedy Pet Photo Awards 2020.

First launched in 2017, the competition encourages professional and amateur photographers to pick up a camera and capture those heart-warming and funny moments with their beloved pets, and be in with a chance to win a £3,000 top prize.

A panel of judges, including TV presenter, Kate Humble, and Blue Cross's very own Head of Education Services, Tracy Genever, will select the top 40 entries when the competition closes in August - the finalists will be announced in September.

The partnership, which celebrates the joy pets bring to our lives, means that Blue Cross will receive a donation from Mars Petcare and a percentage of the competition's entry fees.
