And after the success of our Little Cherubs children’s photo competition earlier this year, we decided it was time to give our four-legged friends a chance to be in the spotlight.

Our Santa Paw Prints competition is a chance for all our animal-loving readers to share photos of their pets enjoying Christmas.

Whether it’s a festive lead for your dog, your cat dozing under the Christmas tree or some tinsel around the fish bowl, we want to see them all.

All you need to do is email in a photo of your pet, along with your name, address, contact number and your animal’s name, to Alternatively you can fill out the form in this week’s Beccles and Bungay Journal and post it with a photo of your pet to the address provided.

The competition is being split into three categories - dogs, cats and other animals. The winner of the dog and cat categories will receive a £10 gift voucher provided by Cracks Pet Foods in Blyburgate, Beccles, with a £10 Tesco voucher up for grabs for the winner of the other animal category.

Photos will be printed in the paper along with a voting form, as well as posted on our Facebook page and website.
