Do you have a “Fabulous Feline” you want to share with the world? Well, you've come to the right place! Over the next two weeks, HSCC will be accepting your very best cat photos and asking the community to vote for their favorite. The feline with the most votes will earn the coveted People's Choice award and have their photo prominently displayed in Seven Days! Our panel of esteemed cat-loving Judges will crown the Judges' Pick, whose photo will also be showcased in the magazine.
Each entry and vote supports the Humane Society of Chittenden County. Donations help strengthen HSCC’s community programs and services which includes humane education, rehoming more than 1,000 animals each year, assisting with humane investigations, and surrender prevention initiatives designed to keep families and their pets together.
This contest is open to residents of the United States who are 18 years or older. Employees of the Humane Society of Chittenden County are not eligible.
How to Enter:
All eligible entrants can enter for a chance to win by submitting a $25 donation to HSCC and photo of their feline on the submission page. Entries will be accepted between 8:00 am EST April 9, 2021 and 11:59 pm EST April 23, 2021. All entries become the property of the Humane Society of Chittenden County. We will not offer entry fee refunds.
Please submit your photo in a JPEG, JPG, or PNG format. All photos must be in focus and of good quality (brightness and contrast). Photo size should be at least 270 pixels by 180 pixels in order to minimize photo distortion. Photos of poor quality not suitable for printing may be exempt from winning the top prize. All submitted photos are subject to review for inappropriate/offensive content (see Rules). Photographs may not be edited or altered, other than minor color, contrast, or sharpness adjustments.
How to Vote:
$1 = 1 Vote! You may vote as often as you like. Example: Give $20 for 20 votes, $25 for 25 votes and $100 for 100 votes! The photo with the most votes wins the People’s Choice category!
