How to participate?

Subjects

All artwork must feature one or multiple cats. The artwork cannot feature explicit scenes of cruelty towards cats or other animals. Material that is deemed inappropriate will be excluded from the competition.

Size/format

If possible, take a scan of your work. When this not possible (i.e. because of the size of the work or the texture), take a clear photograph. For a good picture, remember to

  • focus on the artwork,
  • use enough lightning so we can judge the artwork properly,
  • use professional equipment and avoid low-resolution cameras like those in smartphones.

If the photo quality is insufficient or does not clearly show the original artwork, this may effect the judging. Submit your entries in a JPEG format (.jpg file extension). There is no standard format size, but keep the file under 5 MB.

Submitting artwork

Each entry must be uploaded via the contest form on the Catit website. The file must be clearly labeled: it should carry your name and the category of the artwork, for example TPeters_Painting.jpg or MKern_Drawing.jpg. All fields on the contact form must be correctly filled in and a valid e-mail address must be given. Failure to do this may result in exclusion from the contest. Make sure to describe the materials you used when creating the artwork. Entries are admitted until February 29, 2016.

Rules and Regulations

This worldwide contest is open to residents of legal age in their respective countries. No purchase necessary to enter this contest. All information on the official entry form must be provided in order for the entry to be valid. By submitting the obligatory Official Entry Form, each contestant agrees to abide by the rules and regulations governing this contest.

Winners

A professional external jury will make a first selection of up to 10 entries per category. Secondly, everyone will have a chance to vote for their favourite entry. Once votes are in, the winners will be announced on April 15, 2016.
