“The awards recognise the best of the pet blogging community and is an opportunity for the pet industry to get together annually and to support pet welfare organisations. Special focus will be placed on pet welfare and each year funds raised from the awards will be donated to a specific organisation.
Furthermore, it will increase public awareness of the pet industry’s support of pet welfare in Australia.”

Plus Dogs Life Magazine Readers Choice Award
Entries close on Friday 15 November and finalists will be announced on the 22nd November 2013. Winners will be announced at a luncheon in Sydney hosted by Australia’s leading media personality, dog lover and pet welfare supporter, Kerri-Anne Kennerley on Friday 29 November. Finger’s crossed we might be invited and make the road trip up to Sydney for the event!
The overall winner will choose a pet welfare organisation which will receive a full page colour advertisement in Dogs Life Magazine valued at $6,000. The winner and the pet organisation will be profiled in Dogs Life!
It’s already been a great opportunity to meet and connect with other pet bloggers, so in my opinion it’s already been a success! If you have a pet blog we would love to hear from you, just comment below or get in touch by email!
