IS your town or area badly afflicted by dog-fouling? If so, we offer you the opportunity to nominate it for the title of Dirty Dogs Capital of Britain - and to win a City Break for four in New York. The town or area most deserving of the title, in the opinion of the judges, will be presented with the Dirty Dogs Capital of Britain award by the Independent on Sunday.


Write and tell us, in not more than 100 words, why your town, village or area deserves the title Dirty Dogs Capital of Britain, and attach as many supporting signatures as possible. The judges - Chris Smith MP, opposition spokesman for the Environment and Tibetan terrier owner, poet Andrew Motion, and IoS editor Ian Jack - will take into consideration the wit of the entry, as well as the facts described. Number of signatures will be taken into account (though will not necessarily be decisive).

Send your entry, by next Thursday, 31 March 1994, to Dirty Dogs Capital of Britain Competition, the Independent on Sunday, 40 City Road, London EC1Y 2DB. (Normal competition rules apply.)


The prize for the winning entry is a City Break for four people in New York. It includes flights, shared coach from JFK/EWR airports and three nights in the four-star Warwick Hotel (subject to availability). The holiday must be taken before 27 August 1994. Flights are on United Airlines, the world's largest carrier, and the hotel is part of the United Vacations package.
