Picture perfect pets

Does your cat or dog have the 'Pawsonality' to win RACQ’s Pet Search?

Pet owners have never really needed an excuse to share a picture of their furry friends, but now there’s extra incentive to snap a photo of your cat or dog.

Returning for the third year, RACQ’s Pet Search competition is looking for Queensland’s cat or dog with the purrfect ‘pawsonality’.

Show us what makes your pet unique, whether it’s sneaking treats, snoozing all day, performing tricks or going on adventures.

With tabby cat Leo winning the 2017 competition and groodle Bailey taking out first place in 2018, this year’s winner will settle the age-old debate of cat versus dog.

In this year’s competition, Queenslanders have until 31 July to enter their pet and the top 50 entries, chosen by a panel, will go in to the final round of voting.

From 2–15 August you will be able to vote for your favourite cat or dog to determine the top 12 finalists and the overall winner of the RACQ Pet Search.

Each of the 12 finalists – the six cats and six dogs with the most votes – will receive a $1000 EFTPOS gift card, a professional photoshoot and a place in the 2020 RACQ Pet Calendar. The finalist with the greatest number of votes will also win a starring role in the calendar and on the front cover of The Road Ahead.

While last year’s competition was mired by allegations of cheating and voter misconduct, RACQ spokesperson Paul Turner said changes have been made to ensure a fair competition.

“This year we’ve implemented technology to prevent bots, vote manipulation and cheating,” Mr Turner said.

“We take bullying very seriously and any entrant found to be cheating or bullying other entrants will be disqualified from the competition.”

Returning this year is the weekly prize draw. Share your entry on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter to go in to the draw to win one of six $100 Vet Product Direct eVouchers.

The 2020 calendar will be available for purchase in late 2019 at all RACQ stores and at Animal Welfare League Queensland (AWLQ) locations for a gold coin donation. All proceeds raised will be donated to AWLQ.
