Guide Dogs is launching a fantastic new photographic competition for children called 'Puppy Love', encouraging kids to enter their most adorable, cutest, funniest or silliest picture of their puppy or dog for the chance to win a totally 'top dog' prize!

A selection of the best pictures will be featured on Guide Dogs' Meet the Family website, dedicated to its new partnership with Blue Peter, www.guidedogs.org.uk/meetthefamily. The 'top dog' prize for the winning entry is the amazing chance to go and see Blue Peter being filmed live at BBC Television Centre in London! There are also three runner up prizes of a special limited edition Blue Peter guide dog puppy mug.

The special website is packed full of fun and interesting pages and includes news about the training of Blue Peter guide dog puppy Magic with new presenter Andy Akinwolere, plus all the latest adventures of Magic's Blue Peter littermates Millie, Marco and May.

The 'Puppy Love' competition is open to UK residents under the age of 16. The closing date is Saturday 31st March. Entrants should email their pictures to meetthefamily@guidedogs.org.uk.

Digital images should be emailed in a j-peg format at no more than 3MB in size, and maximum of three entries per email. Entries can also be sent by post to Meet the Family Competition, Guide Dogs, Hillfields, Burghfield Common, Reading, Berkshire RG7 3YG. Guide Dogs regrets photographs sent by post can not be returned.

All entrants must supply a contact name, age, address, telephone number and the name of puppy or dog photographed. Entrants must obtain written permission from a parent or guardian before entering and it is the entrant's responsibility to ensure that all the necessary permissions are obtained from any persons featured in a photograph.
