Goofy dogs and laughing horses up for funniest pet photo award

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Startled cats, laughing horses and a dog with its nose in a biscuit jar are all vying for the top prize in a photography competition.

More than 2,000 entries from 81 different countries have been received for the Mars Petcare Comedy Pet Photo Awards.

The winner of the contest – which is in its second year – will collect £3,000.

Wildlife television presenter Kate Humble is among the judges, along with competition founders Paul Joynson-Hicks and Tom Sullam, Mars Petcare and animal welfare charity Blue Cross.

“The entries this year have been completely and utterly what we needed to raise our spirits in 2020,” said Mr Sullam.



“It has been a tough year for many, but these images have not only made us laugh out loud, but also re-affirmed our desire to drastically reduce animal cruelty and pet orphanage.”

The awards are intended to raise awareness for homeless pets in the UK, with entry fees donated to Blue Cross.

The winners will be announced on 24 November.
