Picture Paw-fect: new Philosophers’ Dogs competition launched

New competition offers dog owners the chance to win a personalised 'Paw-trait' of their pooch worth £300
It was Karl Barks who once said: “Canines of the world, unite! You have nothing to lose but your leashes.”

Dog owners, rejoice! If you’ve ever wanted to immortalise your pooch in a high-quality, beautiful portrait (or “paw-trait”) that you can show off in your family home, here’s your chance.

The creative duo behind the illustrated book, ‘Philosophers’ Dogs’ have announced a new competition that will give you (and your friends & family) the chance to win a FREE personalised ‘Paw-trait’ of your dog, worth a whopping £300. 

You just need to send the ‘Philosophers’ Dogs’ team a pic or video of your dog, along with an appropriate philosophical quote! The judge’s favourite dog & quote combo will win.  

Here’s what you need to do: 

  1.  Follow the ‘Philosophers’ Dogs’ team on Twitter (@PhilosophyDogs)
  2. Retweet their pinned tweet about the launch of their competition
  3. Tweet them a picture or video of your dog, with an appropriate philosophical quote to go with it (remember to include a link to their crowdfunding competition page so your followers can see and get involved!) 
  4. Make a pledge for the campaign (e.g. pre-ordering a signed hard-back)
  5. Remember to use our exclusive code NITR to get a 25% discount on your order.

Please note: if you don’t happen to own a dog, but would still like to enter, then YOU CAN. Just send in a photo/video of a friendly dog you’ve met out and about and follow the same steps as above. Everyone who enters the competition will get their names printed in the back of the book once its published.

More information about the competition is available via the ‘Philosophers’ Dogs’ crowdfunding page on Unbound.

About the book

‘Philosophers’ Dogs’ is a new creative project from award-winning publishers, Unbound. Written by NITRB’s own Samuel Dodson and illustrated by his sister, Rosie Benson, ‘Philosophers’ Dogs‘ is the ground-breaking textbook that will shake the very foundations of both western and eastern philosophy by revealing a truth that has hitherto been kept secret: that all human philosophers stole their ideas from their dogs.

Featuring beautiful illustrations, the book introduces us to the philosophical ideas of Karl Barks, Mary Woof-stonecraft, Alan Chew-ring, and Sun Shih-tzu (among many others) as it seeks to answer such important questions as, “who really is a ‘good’ dog?” and “are tennis balls always real?”

The book is currently more than 50% funded through Unbound – who have made waves when one of their books was short-listed for the Man Booker Prize. Indeed, they have played a key role in transforming the publishing sector through crowdfunding.

So, what are you waiting for? Play your part in making a book a reality, while also entering a competition that will give you the chance to win a FREE paw-trait of your dog (worth £300)! Good luck in the competition, friends!
