November 2009 Photo Contest Submission Thread  

post #1 of 70
Thread Starter 
The theme for November 2009 is: “Kitty cat....Where are you at?†or Cats in strange places. You know, when you're looking for kitty and they turn up someplace you didn't think they would or should be, but there they are!

Basics:
NO CATS CAN BE HARMED FOR THE PURPOSES OF THIS CONTEST! Mildly annoyed , yes, but not actually harmed (pretty much goes without saying).


1.Only one entry per month, but you can change your mind and submit a different photo during the submission period.
2.No photo that has been featured in a past TCS Calendar can be submitted again. However, photos that were not in the top 3 (or 4 as the case may have been) can be resubmitted if they apply to the theme of the month. Additionally, photos can be submitted for more than one month but can only be voted in to the Calendar (top 3) once.
3.Rights to the winning photographs are granted to www.thecatsite.com for use in future TCS projects made available for purchase to other members and the public.

Photography

1. Photo and all rights must be owned by the submitter.
2.Photo entry must be at least 480 x 640 pixels, with higher resolution/size availability (by email) preferred.
3.Photo must be clear, focused, not manipulated by Photoshop (basic altering such as cropping, brightness, etc. is allowed) and apply to the theme of the month.
4.Photos that do not necessarily meet #2 and #3 can be entered, but will not make the final voting rounds.

Please be sure to tell us the name of the kitty(ies) in the photo, for award/future purposes.

The prize will include points, a custom signature and bragging rights for having the first, second and third place Ms. or Mr. November. The 1st place winner will also have a copy of the 2010 Cats of TheCatSite Calendar sent to them when it's finished. The calendar will include at least the top 3 place cats (possibly more depending on how close the votes are) from each monthly contest!

We also need to mention that winners will be asked to email full sized versions of the photograph to a moderator, and winning images will be used for future TCS projects made available for purchase to other members and the public (see above).

Deadline for submission is July 5, 2009.

All members, moderators, admin, and site owner are eligible for this contest.

Since we don't have a vote thread to fill the void between the June & July submission threads, I thought this is the perfect time to run the last "extra" month that we have. Kinda like Christmas in July...but November in June!

Well, I was practically last to submit one for the last contest, let's see if I can be first for this one!

This is my ex-foster boy, Sam, trying to show me how sad it is when people throw away their kitties!

These pictures are all great so far!!! I don't know if I have any good ones. I do have a picture of Pixel in some shorts, but it's not a very good picture. I don't usually catch them with the camera when they are in weird places like the hamper, the cabinets, etc. Maybe I will stage something.

These are all such great pics! My cats are in the weirdest places all the time and somehow I don't get pics of it. (Well, I don't have a camera now, but before I lost it I should have been more vigilant with my camera.)

I do have a picture of Molly hiding behind a curtain where all you can see is her tail, but I don't think a picture of a tail is ideal for a cat photo contest. Probably need a bit more cat in the pic.

Cats in bags and boxes is the theme for July But it may work well for this one too, depending on the photo.

Nope, you didn't miss anything. Just making sure we can get the calendar done and out in a timely fashion.

Rianna, definitely the one of him in the bowl.

He's actually in a mug, not a bowl. He was just about 4 weeks old in that picture.

... and he loved sleeping in my bra when he was little. I guess he's just a typical male. lol

You wouldn't believe how long it took him to climb into that thing and get turned around and comfortable, lol, since it was half full of water bottles at the time!
