NZ Post are giving Kiwi pet owners the opportunity to have their cherished companions appear on a new stamp collection with contest entries invited through its Collectables Facebook page.
NZ Post’s head of stamps and collectables Antony Harris says pet owners can enter a good quality photo into one of the competition’s four categories; Best Dressed, Cutest in Show, Cheekiest Rascal and Kiwi Spirit.
“We are excited to be putting out these special pets of Aotearoa stamps and have already seen some really great entries from proud pet owners.”
Harris said as well as supplying a photo, Kiwis should write a small blurb about why their pet should win the category entered.
He said as well as bragging rights, each of the four winners will receive a set of stamps to treasure and share with family and friends.
The stamps will also go on sale for the public to purchase from August 2, 2023.
All entries will also go into the draw to win a set of the four pets of Aotearoa stamps. Entries must be made via the NZ Post Collectables Facebook page by the end of Friday April 21.
The picture competition winners will be selected by NZ Post and announced on Wednesday April 26.
