IT’S that time of year for pet-lovers to go animal crackers and win some super prizes in our Santa Paws competition.
All you have to do is capture your canine looking Christmassy or your feline feeling festive, and send them to us.
Up for grabs is a photographic studio session and a 16x12ins print of the winning pet, courtesy of Village Photography in Hebburn.
You can e-mail your photographs to firstname.lastname@example.org or send them to Santa Paws, c/o Paul Woods, The Shields Gazette, Northeast Press, Pennywell Industrial Estate, Sunderland, SR4 9ER.
Don’t forget to include your name, address and contact details, along with the name of the pet featured in the photograph.
