Win a Dog Photography experience valued at over $6,000 in the Furtography Dog of the Year Competition.


2018 is the Year of the Dog and to celebrate, Furtography is looking for the Dog of the Year!

Over the next 10 months you will be able to enter a photo of your dog using the entry form below. Once your entry is approved your photo will be uploaded to a monthly album on the Furtography Facebook page where people will be able to vote on their favourite pooch.

The dog with the most votes each month will win a copy of my book, A Dog’s Life, and go through to the final round of the competition, where the winner of the vote will be named Dog of The Year and win a Furtography Photoshoot customised to create your dream images, a stunning Signature .MOV Album, handcrafted in Italy, complete with a gorgeous box that plays a movie slideshow of the images from your photoshoot and a beautiful piece of acrylic wall art. The amazing folks at Roam Pet have given $1,000 worth of food and treats from their fantastic range of natural products. Plus Paws and Claws Fashion have added some fabulous doggy fashion to the prize pack too!

“But I can’t wait a year until my dog has their Furtography photo shoot!”

No problem, book your session and enter the competition between now and the closing date (31st December 2018). If your dog is the winner of Dog of the Year you can choose one of the following options:

Accept the prize on offer. You can have the Signature .MOV album and acrylic from the shoot you have already had. 


Select to have a refund to the value of the main prize on products you have already purchased from your session.



The final round of voting is up on the Facebook page now and the winners of the 10 monthly rounds will battle it out for the title during January.

With thanks to…
