Amazon wants shoppers to think of its marketplace as a source for all their pet-supply needs, and on Monday, it kicked off a contest in the UK to get the message across to people via social media. The company is looking for 2018’s Face of Amazon Pets to find the official (furry) face of the Amazon.co.uk Pet Supplies Store.
To enter, pet owners must submit images/videos of their dogs, cats, fish, birds, small animals (e.g. rabbits, hamsters), horses and reptiles to the Amazon.co.uk Facebook wall, or via Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #AmazonPets and say why they think their pet should win.
The top five videos and/or imagery from each animal category with the most views, likes and comments, along with five wildcard entries per category will be given as a shortlist to the judging panel.
One animal will be crowned the Face of Amazon Pets and will receive the top prize of a £1,500 Amazon Gift Card as well as starring in a photoshoot with specialist animal photographer, Rachel Oates, one of the judges.
Six Face of Amazon Pets runners‐up will be awarded a £200 Amazon Gift Card each.
James Bate, Pet Supplies Director at Amazon.co.uk, called the UK a nation of animal lovers and said Amazon wants to celebrate all creatures great and small and their devoted owners.
The competition kicked off on September 3rd and closes on Sunday, September 16, 2018. Visit the Face of Amazon Pets competition on the Amazon UK website for more information.
