2016 iCatCare Photography Competition
International Cat Care’s annual photography competition is back for its fourth year with a brand new theme – Cat Naps!

 The charity, in association with Your Cat magazine, is searching for beautiful and unique images of cats asleep or resting to feature in its 2017 calendar (and other published materials) that will be sold to raise funds for the charity. Images can be of cats sleeping alone or with other cats or animals, cats asleep in weird and wonderful locations or of cats simply curled up. Basically any image that shows a cat engaging in one of the species’ favourite pastimes – sleeping! Twelve winning images will be selected by the judges from iCatCare and Your Cat magazine. These will feature in the calendar with the overall winner appearing on the cover. Images entered into the competition may also be used in other iCatCare materials and on the charity’s social media. Any image used will always be credited to the photographer. The overall winner will receive £500, plus a year’s subscription to Your Cat magazine. The other competition winners will receive £100 each and all winning photographers will be sent a certificate, three copies of the calendar and a selection of iCatCare merchandise. Winners will also be invited to attend iCatCare’s annual awards event at Kensington Roof Gardens in London. The competition opened on 1 April and will close at on 15 May 2016. Winners will be announced on iCatCare’s social media shortly after. For a chance to win and to find out full terms and conditions, visit: www.icatcare.org/photography-competition. International Cat Care has also included some top tips on how to take the perfect picture of cats from past winners of the competition. -ENDS- 05/04/16

  15. It's actually open to worldwide entries! :)

    I went to last years winner event and there were quite a few people that won from outside the UK. Obviously the main price is more useful for UK residents but it's all about the fame. ;)

    And how have you and Cody been? :D
