Entries have now closed for the contest, which will see one lucky pet collect the top prize of a two-hour professional pet portrait shoot, courtesy of the The Really Wild Studio, worth £140.

Simon Collington, who runs the studio, will now sift through the scores of entries to pick the top ten and will arrange photo shoots with our finalists.

Then it will be down to YOU to vote for your favourite from that shortlist to decide who will take the crown - and that top prize!
