Will your pooch be the continent’s first Ambassadoggy?
Even though the news broke on April Fool’s Day, it’s no joke! M-Net Movies Family, channel 105 on DStv, is looking for a pooch with personality to become the channel’s official Ambassadoggy. The entry form for this light-hearted, all-round fun competition was posted on the M-Net website yesterday (www.mnet.tv/ambassadoggy)
The Ambassadoggy, who will undoubtedly turn into an A-list canine celebrity, will perform its “duties” for one year: appearing on television in all kinds of ways and attending M-Net Movies events.
“This unusual competition summarises the values of M-Net Movies Family perfectly, “ says M-Net’s Head of Publicity, Lani Lombard. “The channel provides great entertainment for the entire family and we know that ‘man’s best friend’ is often more than just a pet in our viewers’ homes – Rover, Rex, Snoopy, Cuddles and all the others are part of the family!”
So how do you turn your furry family member into the Ambassadoggy? Simply complete the entry form on the website, tell the judges why your cute canine should be the top dog and send a video or photograph of the talented contender.
A panel of five South African celebrity dog lovers will whittle down the entries to five potential winners and then it’s up to the voting public to choose their favourite.
The owners of the winning doggy and runner up will also win some prizes. The first prize will include a flat screen television set, a DStv Explora and pampering voucher for your pooch. The runner up will receive a DStv Explora.
Entries close on 30 April.
