Kittenhood: capture a kitten on camera for International Cat Care (iCatCare) photo competition


If there’s one thing the internet loves, it is kittens and this year feline charity International Cat Care (iCatCare) is searching for photos of kittens for its annual photography competition.

With the brand-new theme of ‘Kittenhood’ the charity is inviting both amateur and professional photographers from across the globe to enter images of adorable newborns and curious kittens (up to six months of age) – whether they’re snoozing, playing, or just looking irresistibly cute.

Now in its sixth year, the competition has collectively attracted over 12,000 entries from all over the world. Eve Davies, who has run the competition for the last three years, said: ‘Over 2000 images were sent into last year’s Street Cats competition and the resulting calendar sold out! We’re hoping that this year’s competition will be more popular and successful than ever to help us celebrate our 60th anniversary and to raise vital funds for our work.’


Twelve winning images will be selected by the iCatCare judges to feature in the charity’s 2019 calendar (and other materials) which will
be sold to raise funds for the charity’s welfare work, with one of these being crowned the overall winner and gracing the front cover. All twelve winners will each receive a certificate, copies of the calendar and a selection of iCatCare merchandise. The overall winner will also receive £500 in prize money.

  10. Cody was such a sweet baby! At PAWS all the tiny kittens go to foster homes now until they are old enough to be adopted. They come back to the shelter healthy and well socialized. It's so much better for them- but I sure miss seeing the babies at the shelter.
