January 2013 Photo Competition

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 communitycatsnetwork@gmail.com.  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.

Conditions

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 1st competition of 2013, we have a great prize to offer.  It is the book Fairminded Fran and the Three Small Black Community Cats written by Linda Elder and illustrated by Kathy Abney.  Although designed for children, it will equally delight adult readers!

We would like to thank The Foundation for Critical Thinking for sponsoring this month’s competition.
