Community Cats’ monthly photo competition is a fun way to support the work we do and help us to raise much needed funds. The entry to the competition is €3, which will help us to look after our feline friends. As you may have guessed, the subject of the photo must be an animal, but not necessarily a cat, as we love all animals!
How does it work?
Firstly, you need to buy one or more entries online (make sure you write down the reference number). You then submit your photo, with the reference number, to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can submit photos until the 25th of each month. We keep record of all entries, so if you have bought more than one, you do not have to use them all in one go. The photos are then displayed in a photo album on Facebook, where your friends and our followers can vote for them until the last day of the month at midnight. The four photos with the most votes are shortlisted and sent to a judging panel who will consider both content and quality of the photos to make the final decision. The winner will then be announced here and on Facebook.
You can buy more than one entry from our Facebook shop. Alternatively, you can buy entries by making a bank transfer; make sure that you enter the following reference: “photo + your name” (Name of account: Community Cats Network; Bank: Permanent TSB, North Main Street, Cork; Sort code: 99 07 07; Account number: 20668352). You can also pay via Paypal by using the link on the left (only one entry at a time).
Only photos with a valid reference number will be accepted. You must be the author of the photo in order to submit it.
The prize for this month is a collection of poems about cats and their owners: Catawall by Te Harrison-Best. This little book would make the perfect companion for your wintery night by the fire.
We’d like to thank Te Harrison-Best for her support in sponsoring this edition of the photo competition. You can visit her website to read reviews of this book or purchase it here.
