Autumn 2015 Photo Competition

Photo competition 15 autumn

Community Cats’ 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 communitycatsnetwork@gmail.com.  You can submit photos until the 20th of November.  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 end of November.  The three 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 middle of December.

Click to buy your entry

You can buy multiple entries from our Ecwid shop (using Paypal secure payment).  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).

Terms and Conditions

Only photos with a valid reference number will be accepted.

You must be the author of the photo in order to submit it.

If the prize needs to be posted to you, we will ask you to cover for the postage.

The prize

For this edition we have three prizes the winner can choose from.

The first is a handmade cat bed crafted by one of our supporters.
