From golden retrievers in festive glasses to cats in Santa hats - and even a pair of festive hamsters.

There were plenty of entries of your furry friends in the pets category of the Norwich Business Improvement District's (BID) Festive Faces contest.

The competition saw people submit their selfies and photographs in the hopes it would be projected onto the side of the 900-year-old Norwich Castle.
