Cessnock City Council launches Instagram account with pet photo competition during Local Government Week

Pet photo comp to launch council's Instagram account

What better way to launch your Instagram account than with cute animal photos?

To coincide with Local Government Week (August 3-9), Cessnock City Council has launched its Instagram account with pet photo competition to celebrate responsible pet ownership.

"We're running the With Love Comes Responsibility Instagram photo competition to promote the good work our rangers do and to encourage conversations about being a responsible pet owner," council's principal ranger Jason Mullee said.

"It's also part of our celebrations for Local Government Week 2020 which highlights what councils contribute to community life."

Take a photo of your pet in their favourite spot, post it to Instagram on public, tag @cessnockcitycouncil and tell them in 50 words or less what makes you the best and most responsible pet owner in the Cessnock LGA, using the hashtag #WithLoveComesResponsibility.

The competition closes August 31.

The winner will receive a $100 prepaid gift card, with a $75 gift card for the runner-up and a $50 gift card for third place.

Winners will be notified where possible via their social media account.
