The winner of this National Canine Defence League competition was 12-year-old Laura Tillson from Basingstoke, who was awarded a trip to Disneyland Paris. Entrants were required to design a poster, which would increase awareness of the serious responsibilities of dog ownership.


For the second year running, a team of lower sixth form students from Friends' School Lisburn, Co.
