Terms & Conditions of Entry - By entering any show you are acknowledging and agreeing to the following:
Entries will be accepted up to & including the 31st January at 7pm
Judging will begin from 7pm on 3rd February (to allow for last minute entries to be uploaded and judges to familiarise themselves with their entries before judging begins)
NO photos will be uploaded and entered into the competition until full payment has been received.
Photos exceeding 3mb in size will be compressed in order to fit within each album.
You may enter the same photo in more than one class but each will be classed as a separate entry and must be paid for.
You may enter as many photos as you wish into each class (unless otherwise stated in the class description) but each photo will be classed as a separate entry and must be paid for.
By entering the photo you agree that you are the owner of the animal (or have the owner’s permission to enter the animal) and that the photo is not subject to any copyright conditions.
Photos taken at a public venue such as a zoo or safari park are accepted & do not require you to obtain permission from that venue.
Wildlife photographs are accepted & do not require any permission.
Images that you have found on the Internet that do not belong to you are not eligible for entry. Any such images that are brought to our attention will be removed from the competition & there will be NO refund of any entry fees paid.
All classes cost £2 per photo unless otherwise stated.
The judge’s decision is final. Exhibitors are NOT ALLOWED to contact Sponsors/Judges directly unless claiming a prize. Any breach of this rule will result in that exhibitor being disqualified from the show & banned from future shows.
Once entries have been paid for & uploaded there will be no refund of any fees paid. In exceptional circumstances, and at the organiser’s discretion, a refund may be granted in cases such as a pet has passed away & the owner no longer wishes to participate in the show.
The cost of postage for rosettes is included in your membership fee each month (£3) for the UK nly (Royal Mail 2nd Class Standard) - if you are entering from overseas please contact us after you have won a rosette/prize for postage costs.
Paws for a Picture / Education Animals cannot be held liable for loss or damage to rosettes / prizes in the post.
If you would like your rosettes sent by either signed for or a tracked service, then please contact us ASAP after you have won so we can collect your payment for the extra costs that will be incurred.
No replacement rosettes will be sent in the event of them being lost in the post UNLESS you have paid for signed for or tracked service.
Prizes - Sponsors will send out your prize using the most ecomonic method for their business. There is no extra cost to you. They will ALWAYS obtain a certificate of posting (or the equivalent) to prove they have sent the prize. Should a prize go missing in the post no replacement will be sent (but proof of posting will be provided to you)
If you would like to pay for a signed for or tracked service then please discuss this with your class sponsor directly and they will let you know how much you need to pay. They will also help you to resolve any issues with the chosen carrier should your prize go missing.
Entry into any show will be deemed as acceptance of our terms & conditions.
We run a family friendly show and will not tolerate any form of abuse such as harassment, bullying, cheating etc. against the organisers, exhibitors, sponsors or judges.
