The Pet Portrait Awards has in previous years supported DogsTrust and Guide Dogs for the Blind Association while photographing Dogs for the awards. The National Portrait Awards are thrilled to launch the 2020 awards with the addition of the wonderful charity, Blue Cross for pets. This has allowed The Awards to open up their pet category to include all domesticated pets including, cats, rabbits, horses, hamsters and many more!

The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association helps over two million people living with sight loss live the life they choose. Founded in 1934, they are a charity almost entirely dependent on donations, so The National Portrait Awards are proud to be able to help generate funds to help the wonderful and life changing work they do.

DogsTrust was founded in 1891 and is the largest dog welfare charity in the UK. Their mission is to bring about the day when all dogs can enjoy a happy life, free from the treat of unnecessary destruction.
