Entries have now closed and public voting is open! Vote for your favourite dog in the great outdoors and help choose the winner BBC Countryfile Magazine Dog of the Year for 2020.
How Dog of the Year works
We are looking for your best photo of your dog. Ideally, choose a clear photo of your dog in the great outdoors. This could be the countryside, your local park or back garden.
The photos will then go to a public vote to create a shortlist of the top 10 images. The overall winner will then be chosen by the BBC Countryfile Magazine editorial team and an independent judge from this shortlist. The judges will assess the images against a series of criteria, including quality of image, composition and originality.

Finally… Pet food you can feel good about
Welcome to Edgard & Cooper – naturally tasty pet food that you, your pet and our planet can feel good about!
Edgard & Cooper was created to bring healthy tasty food to dogs. Our food is cooked and packed with nature in mind – never over-processed and never using dried or meat meal. We spent years perfecting our delicious food, which is made using lots of fresh meat and simple ingredients. From our nutritious kibble to our juicy jerky, our food and treats will keep your dog happy, healthy and ready for adventure.
We’re a nature-loving lot and we care deeply about our planet. You’ll only find our products in packaging made from plants or infinitely recyclable metal – our efforts have saved over 4.5million plastic bags from ever existing!
We also donate 1% of sales to the Edgard & Cooper Foundation, an independent charity that helps to improve the lives of dogs and cats today and avoid harm tomorrow. We’ve donated over £96,000 so far.
