Paws at the Pavilion

Open Photographic Competition

Penarth Pier Pavilion would like to celebrate our four legged friends with their very own photo exhibition; and help support Cardiff Dogs Home.

Send us your photos by the end of July to be considered for inclusion in the exhibition and for the chance to win a professionally drawn portrait of your dog.

We invite dog owners to submit photographs of their dogs and 30 selected photos will be framed and exhibited within the gallery.

One winning pooch will have his or her portrait drawn by local artist Sheridan Ward.

  • 50% of all profits will be donated to Cardiff Dogs Home.
