Photo competition aims
to put needy sheepdogs in the picture

Matthew and Faye Hall are currently organising the latest in a successful series of photographic competitions in aid of a charitable organisation called Border Collie and Sheepdog Rescue.

This charity aims to provide sanctuary, rehabilitation and, where possible, re-homing for Border Collie dogs that have been mistreated or abandoned. You can find out more about them by visiting their web site at

They are delighted to announce that the internationally renowned wildlife artist Pollyanna Pickering has agreed to judge the competition, and details of the various different classes and requirements for entry can be obtained from the address information below. The competition will be judged in October 2003, and all proceeds/donations taken are to be forwarded to the Border Collie and Sheepdog Rescue providing vital support for their important work.

So far there are several official sponsors to the competition including Pedigree, Company of Animals, Johnson's, Paw Prints. Barbara Sykes is sponsoring two special classes, and Land Rover Monthly magazine are sponsoring a special class for 'The best friend (and 4 x 4) by far...' In addition, Brown Trout Publishing and Otter House are offering their support, as well as numerous other generous parties.
