DogFriendly Photo Competition 2021 Winners
DogFriendly’s Photo Competition 2021 closed on 30th June 2021. More than 3,000 photos were entered this year.
This stunning photo of Dora was the overall winner of the competition and chosen by our judge Bob Barrett (dog lover and star of BBC’s Holby City). Owner Mark Laslett gets to take Dora on an amazing stay at a dog friendly Hilton Hotel of their choice and will have a special feature in the September edition of DogFriendly Magazine.
Category winners, as below, were based on public votes of over 25,000. Thank you so much for everybody who sent in their wonderful pictures and also to those that voted.... we are looking forward to next year's competition already.
Here is the reason Bob picked the winning photo of Dora from the thousands of entries.
“If ever you wished to see something that epitomises the sheer joy of being a dog, and also the complete joy of loving a dog, it is encapsulated in this picture”
