A financial advisor is in the running for top prize in a competition to find the world's best business location.
She caught the judge's attention with a photo of her with her pet alpacas.
She said: "This was taken in the field that I see from my bespoke built office at the bottom of our garden.
"These five alpacas are my pets and they're proving to be a real draw for my clients. I'm finding that all they want to do now is visit me to see the 'boys', rather than me travelling to see them. I guess it's unique to have a financial adviser who also has alpacas.
"I've always loved being outdoors and so having outside space is hugely important to me, not least because of the fresh air. I find it really calming and I'm much more productive in the hours that I work as a result."
The winner of the World's Best Business Location competition, which is being run by London-based tech company UENI, will receive £200 in Amazon vouchers, while four runners up will win £25 each. The winners will be revealed on the UENI website on World Entrepreneurs’ Day - Wednesday August 21.
Christine Telyan, CEO of UENI, said: “As a freelancer, small business or sole trader, you can work in some fantastic locations, be it on the beach with your laptop, on a balcony with a great view, or simply in an office which always makes you smile.
“This competition is designed to reveal the most inspiring and unusual places people spend their working days, all over the world.”
The World’s Best Business Locations competition is open for entries until Friday, July 19.
