Thanks to our generous supporters we've got loads of fun competitions and lovely pet goodies to give away during National Pet Month. Here's how you can join in.
How would you like to win some fabulous goodies for your pet?
Well, during National Pet Month there’s plenty of opportunity to do just that.
During our five week campaign we’ve got a whole host of fantastic prizes up for grabs on our social media channels, thanks to the generosity of some fabulous businesses.
Make Your Pet A Movie Star
If you own a wonderful pet you want to show off to the world then grab your smartphone or video camera, film a short, fun video clip of your pet (2 minutes maximum) that reflects this year’s theme of companionship and simply post the clip on our Facebook page www.fb.com/NationalPetMonth, tweet @NatPetMonthUK with the hashtag #NPMStar or send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
The judges’ favourite entry will be asked to supply a digital picture of their pet so that it can be turned into a fabulous framed print to take pride of place in your home.
Just imagine, your pet companion captured in happy times forever. What’s not to love?
Not only that but we will feature your winning video in National Pet Month’s digital magazine published after this year’s campaign which will take pride of place on the NPM websitewww.nationalpetmonth.org.uk and be distributed to an audience of millions across social media.
Your video should be accompanied by text (no more than 140 characters) which explains why your pet is a great companion.
Entries need to be in by midnight on Monday, May 6. Judges’ decision is final. No cash substitute.
Just think, your pet could be talent spotted and be the next pet celeb like Lassie or Pudsey.
So what are you waiting for? Camera, lights action!
During NPM’s five week campaign we’ll be talking about our competitions on Facebook so make sure you like our page at www.fb.com/NationalPetMonth and look out for details of how you can win a host of pet and human goodies.
Each of the five weeks of the campaign we’ll be using special graphics to highlight our fantastic prizes and all you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is to follow the instructions on the graphic.
We’ll then put the names of everyone who has entered into a draw and pull out a winner each week.
Prizes on offer include cat toys, delicious doggy treats, personalised pet jewellery, a bespoke dog coat made by a fashion designer and a goodie bag for humans from NPM supporter and keep fit queen Rosemary Conley.
How fantastic is that?
