BTW Scavenger Hunt Photo Competition #BTWAGM2020

We thought we'd have a little fun in the run up to our AGM as our event is virtual this year and we won't be able to get together as we usually would.

So we've decided to challenge you to a Scavenger Hunt where you have to gather together 6 items listed below and take a photo with your Border Terrier(s) to submit as your entry for the competition.

Sound simple?  Wait til you see the list; what will be your biggest challenge, gathering your items or getting your Border to sit still enough for the camera whilst not making off with one (or more) of the items before you get your photo!

We're offering the chance to win some amazing prizes of our BT100 logo branded clothing and rosettes for your Border.  Read on to find out how to enter.


Since we announced our competition, a lockdown was announced in England and we know many of you have been busy working long hours before, so you've asked us for more time.  We thought you'd also be looking for something to keep your Border's occupied, now that your'e spending more time with them too!  Hopefully it gives you more time to enter now, so read on to check out how.

Judging & Terms

How will the competition be judged?

This is a photo competition and will not be judged to the Border Terrier breed standard.  

All Border Terriers are welcome, whether pedigree or crossbreed, especially those who have been rescued or re-homed and Border Terriers must be included in the image.

We will also have a Special rosette award for the winner of the non-Border pet entries.

The Border Terriers in the images or video can be in any position; sitting, standing, lying down or however they are comfortable!

Entries will be shortlisted by the BTW Committee and finalists chosen for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.  In the event of a tie, the Chairman's decision is final.  Special rosettes may also be awarded to entries that particularly catch the judge's eye.

The winners will be announced during the BTW AGM event on Sunday 8 November and we will contact the winners to arrange their prizes.

Any entries received after midnight Friday 6 November 2020 or submitted incorrectly will be disqualified.  The Chairman's decision will be final.

You can donate to support BTW

If you are able to spare a donation, however small or large, to support our work at this time it would be much appreciated.  Please use the JustGiving button for donations in relation to attending our AGM event and for BTW Scavenger Hunt entries.


The photos should be the best quality you can provide up to 10MB, either landscape or portrait, must be clear and in focus, but no professional photography please, unless you hold the copyright to the image. 

There is no lower or upper age limit for Border Terriers (or other pets) in the photos. 

There should be no identifying features which will geolocate the Border Terrier to a specific home address.

There should be nothing to identify individual Border Terriers by name in the image, as the competition will be judged anonymously.

Entry into the Show gives BTW permission to use the photos on social media, the BTW website or other media in support of BTW.

A Border Terrier may only be entered once, duplicate entries will be disqualified.  You may include all your Border Terriers in the photo (if you can get them to all sit still at the same time!).

Prizes are not transferable and have no redeemable value.

BTW Committee members and their household are excluded from entering the Show, as they will be involved in judging.  BTW Reps are free to enter as they are not part of the judging team.

The BTW Scavenger Hunt photo competition is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with, Facebook, Twitter or any of the brands associated with this competition. Neither are they responsible for any issues related to the competition — accepting the terms indicates a complete release of Facebook and Twitter etc by each participant.
