Hi everyone,

Good luck everyone,

Strike a ‘paws’: the search begins to find 2018’s Face of Amazon Pets

  • The competition to find the official (furry) face of the Amazon.co.uk Pet Supplies Store launched on the 3rd of September
  • Proud pet owners are invited to enter by posting pictures and videos of their beloved animals on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook using #AmazonPets
  • The winner will star in a photo shoot with a specialist pet photographer and receive a £1,500 Amazon Gift Card to spend on toys and treats
  • Sales data from Amazon.co.uk reveals Glasgow, followed by Manchester and Bristol, have the most preened pets, purchasing the most pet grooming products per capita in the UK in the last year

To celebrate the nation’s ‘purrfect’ pets and their proud owners, Amazon has launched a search to find the Face of Amazon Pets 2018 in the UK.

Pet owners nationwide are invited to enter until Sunday 16th September – by sharing their best pet picture or video on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter, stating why their pet should win and including the hashtag #AmazonPets. When the competition closes on Sunday 16th September, a panel of high-profile pet-loving judges will choose the winner who will be crowned this year’s Face of Amazon Pets and become the proud recipient of a ‘pet-tastic’ photoshoot and a £1,500 Amazon Gift Card.

amazon.co.uk has teamed up with some of the UK’s most influential social media stars of the pet world including Rachel Oates, Pet Photographer and the owner of Winny the Corgi, who will be joining the former Face of Amazon Pets winner, Effie the Bunny and her owner, Annie Swift on the judging panel. A surprise celebrity guest judge with a love of animals will also be joining the panel but for now, the ‘cat has got our tongue’!

“With more than 50 million pets in the UK, we’re world-renowned as a nation of animal lovers and at Amazon, we want to celebrate all creatures great and small and their devoted owners,” said James Bate, Pet Supplies Director, Amazon.co.uk. “That’s why the search to find the Face of Amazon Pets is back. Don’t hold your horses, we’re calling on all pet parents to share snaps of their furry, feathery, and scaly friends and tell us why they should be the country’s next top pet model.”

Full details of the competition can be found at www.amazon.co.uk/faceofamazonpets.

Sales data from Amazon reveals today that the competition to become the Face of Amazon Pets could get fierce. The pampered pets of Glasgow are ready for their close-up with their owners snapping up the most pet grooming products purchased per capita, with Manchester and then Bristol hot on their tail. The top ten cities in the UK for sales of pet grooming products and some of their favourites are:

The Face of Amazon Pets 2018 competition is running until Sunday 16th September 2018 is open to dogs, cats, fish, birds, small animals (such as rabbits, hamsters, and guinea pigs), horses and reptiles. The top five videos or images from each animal category with the most views, likes, and comments, along with five wildcard entries per category, will be given as a shortlist to the Face of Amazon Pets2018 judging panel.

One animal will be crowned the Face of Amazon Pets and will receive the top prize of a £1,500 Amazon Gift Card and will be invited to a photo and video shoot with their winning pet. The resulting images and video will feature on the UK Amaon Pet Supplies store this autumn. Six Face of Amazon Pets runners‐up will be awarded a £200 Amazon Gift Card each.

“Our bunny Effie had the best year as the Face of Amazon Pets. She loves hopping around the outdoor run and munching on the nibbles which she picked out as part of her prize bundle,” said Effie’s owner, Annie Swift from Worcester. “I always knew Effie was special and I was thrilled that others thought so too. I am very proud of her, but now it’s time to pass the (carrot!) baton to a new Face of Amazon Pets.”

The Amazon UK Pet Supplies Store offers a broad selection of products for dogs, cats, birds, fish & aquatic pets, horses, reptiles and amphibians, insects, small animals and farm animals. From pet food, supplements, treats and health supplies, to toys, accessories, grooming products and the latest in pet technology, there are thousands of products available in the Pets Supplies Store, along with expert guides on how to keep your pets happy and healthy.

    Beware of the GPS collar from the Pawtrack Co in the UK. Mine does not work & I was never sent the replacement as promised.

      Hi Rosemary. We’ve not tried that device or tested it. We have however tested the PetPointer tracker if you’d like me to send you a review link to that one?

      There isn’t actually a limit per owner / household but I always find it unfair to those with only one pet to enter more than one. 😹

    I’ve got the same issue with my babies, although with me I know that only three of the seven would be happy to do a photo shoot if they were to win.

    I didn’t see anything saying we could only enter one pet – I may have missed it though. xx

    OMG I LOVE SCrappy!~ Such a cool looking black & white cat. its as if its a tortishell that lost its ‘tan’ color
    As for your cats… Nubia (cause I’m still missing Sully) or for her eyes Freya

    • Marc-André says:

      Apparently scrappy used to be a black cat but for some reason his pigments changed to white for a large part of his fur.
