Do you have a delightful dog, a cute cat or maybe even a sweet snake?

The Wingham Chronicle is seeking entrants for the 2014 Pet Academy Awards.

We have some great prizes up for grabs with a total prize package valued at $580.

The competition is open to all pets, and although we ask for a nice photo that shows your pet off perfectly, this is not a photographic competition.

You don't need special skills behind the lens to enter just a keen eye for a cute pet.

Three category prizes

There are three categories - Cutest Pet, Most Unusual Pet and Pet that looks like its Owner.

Great prizes per category are up for grabs. We have three Taronga Western Plains Zoo Family Passes for two adults and two children valued at $117.30 each, and three MR Photography Pet Portrait Photo Sessions valued at $75 each to be won.

How to enter

Simply email a recent photo of your current pet to elaine.turner@fairfaxmedia.com.au.

Emailed photos should be a minimum size of 150kb and maximum size of 2mb. You can also drop your photo and details to the Wingham Chronicle office at 63 Isabella Street, Wingham.

The competition is free to enter. Please provide your pet's name and what category you are entering. Please also tell us your name (or pet owner's name), address and contact phone number. All entrants will receive an Official Entrant Certificate via return email as a confirmation that your entry has been received.

These pictures will be gradually uploaded into a gallery on our website and may also appear in print in the Wingham Chronicle. To see our mega pet galleryclick here
