This National Pet Day I want to celebrate all the more unusual pets out there with a competiton that could see you win an A4 painting of your pet! All you have to do to enter is share my facebook post and comment with the photograph you'd like me to paint along with a sentence about why your unusual pet is fantastic!

 On April 25th, I'll pick my favourite photograph and will begin working on your portrait on May 1st! As I'll be picking the photograph that I like the best, here are 5 top tips for photographing your pets.

Pets that can be entered include:​

- Unusual cat or dog breeds

- Rabbits

- Rats, mice, and other rodents

- Reptiles

- Amphibians

- Fish

- Invertebrates

- Any other exotic pets

- Differently-abled pets (blind, amputee, neurological disorders etc)

So what are you waiting for? Get your camera out and enter now!
