New Forest Dog On The Forest Off The Lead

2020 Photo Competition Winner

 And the winner is…


The first New Forest Dog Owners Group photo competition has been won by a New Milton dog owner. John Fox took his picture of pet ‘Rona’ on the beach, and visitors to Dogstival voted this their favourite. The result was announced at the NFDOG Annual General Meeting.

The competition had 36 entries, and NFDOG committee members, aided by a former professional photographer whittled down those to nine finalists. These finalists were judged at Dogstival, where NFDOG had a board with the pictures on at its stand. 374 members of the public chose their favourite, with results being recorded for counting later.

77 people voted for the winner. John Fox from New Milton submitted the attached picture – and local artist Tracy Collier will do a hand drawn image of ‘Rona’ as his prize.

There was a lot of interest, and NFDOG will be doing this again next year, so please keep your eyes peeled. Our thanks to all those who entered – it really was a tough job to judge because of so many brilliant photographs.
