From the masterminds behind the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards, the competition is calling on all pet owners or animal lovers to submit images of funny furry (or not so furry) friends for a chance of winning £3,000 and being named the 2020 Mars Petcare Comedy Pet Photographer of the Year.
Supported by Mars Petcare, the Comedy Pet Photo Awards launched in celebration of the world's pets. The competition will be raising money for UK pet charity Blue Cross to assist it in its mission of finding happy homes for abandoned or unwanted pets.

Not only will the competition aim to showcase the incredible impact pets can have on our lives, which has been brought to the forefront during this challenging time, but it will also look to raise awareness around homeless pets in the UK, a message that is at the heart of competition sponsor Mars Petcare’s mission of ending pet homelessness.

The partnership will be raising much-needed funds for sick, injured, abandoned, and homeless pets across the country by donating 10% of the sponsorship fee and 10% of the £5 entry fee to Blue Cross to assist with its work on rehoming pets and providing veterinary treatment and care.
