In 2019 we had over 600 entries to whittle down to just 3 winners. Again we were astonished by the quantity and quality of the entries we received. The breadth of ideas made it difficult to choose a winner but we hope you’ll agree that the winners are well deserved!

Our 3 winners each receive a t-shirt featuring their winning design and as part of their prize, Teddy will see his badge produced into a real Pawprint Badge (launched in January 2020) with his family also receiving a set of badges too!
