WFTA Photography Competition
The Wire Fox Terrier Association have started their search for wires to appear in their 2020 Calendar. We invite you to take part in our photographic competition and submit images of your dogs. You don’t have to be a WFTA member to enter.
We want to see all types of photos from pups to golden oldies, show dogs to scruffy mutts, little angels to little devils, all we ask is that they are a Wire Fox Terrier!
The overall winner will receive a £25 (or local currency equivalent) Amazon Gift Card and their winning photograph will appear on the front cover of our Limited Edition Calendar. They will also receive a complimentary copy. 12 Runner’s-up will have their winning photos feature on a month within the calendar and also receive a complimentary copy.
