Is Your Pet a Star? Get Ready for Taylor Wimpey's ‘Pets Make a Home’ Photo Competition

07 March 2016

UK - If your pet plays a starring role in most of your home photos, then you’ve probably got the perfect picture for Taylor Wimpey’s Pets Make A Home competition!

The leading housebuilder is again giving pet owners the chance to submit a photograph of their best pal looking their most ‘at home’ – so if your kitten thinks he’s king of the catwalk, your dog hogs the spotlight, or your chickens simply rule the roost, then send in the snap to prove it!

Taylor Wimpey is looking for the best pictures of animals in their favourite place at home, whether they’ve taken over the bed, the sofa, the windowsill, the dining table – or a more unusual spot they’ve made their own.

Last year’s competition saw over 4,000 adorable pet photos submitted and over 60,000 votes cast.
Britain is a nation of animal lovers and almost half of the UK’s households have a pet. These include the most popular animals – dogs and cats – as well as common creatures like fish, birds and rabbits, and the more unusual, including snakes and turtles.

The Pets Make A Home competition is being launched on 1 April to coincide with the start of National Pet Month and entries will be accepted until 2 May.

A personalised pet gift will be up for grabs for the daily winners, while the overall winner of the Pets Make A Home competition – to be announced before the end of May and judged by a panel including a professional photographer and a pet expert – will receive £500 of high street vouchers.

Karen Bremner, Head of Marketing for Taylor Wimpey, says: “We are delighted to launch the ever-popular Pets Make A Home competition this year to coincide with National Pet Month and can’t wait to see the pictures that pet owners post.

“We saw some fantastic photos – and heard some amazing stories – in last year’s hugely successful competition, which left us in no doubt that pets really do make a house a home!”

Pet-owners will be able to enter photos of their pet by visiting and entering their details via the specially created app.

Twitter and Instagram users can also enter by tweeting or posting their image via their own account with the hashtag #TWPetsMakeAHome.

Entrants will receive a response message thanking them for their entry as confirmation. Alternatively, pet-owners can submit their image by emailing

People can then visit the Taylor Wimpey website and Facebook page to view the entries and vote for their favourite pet!
