BED Company Silentnight has launched a nationwide competition, The Pet Factor, to search for a set of four-legged faces for its collection of pet beds.

Pet lovers are invited to enter by simply sharing a portrait of their pet on social media. Silentnight’s judging panel will be looking for the ideal mix of personality and good looks amongst their three winners, who will model small dog, large and medium dog and cat beds respectively.

As well as a professional campaign photoshoot - when current restrictions allow - the winners will receive a goody bag and a brand-new Silentnight pet bed to take home as a thank you for their modelling work.

To enter The Pet Factor, simply submit up to three images via the submission form on the Silentnight website - - by Friday, April 24.

To help those wishing to take part, Silentnight’s professional photography team has offered five top tips for taking the perfect pet portrait:

Keep calm! Four legged friends are emotional sponges and may become agitated or distracted if you’re getting stressed out trying to take the perfect shot.

Have a tidy up so there is no clutter in the background; shoot it at their level and be prepared to bribe your model.
