icc-cat-imagesInternational Cat Care (ICC) is looking for sleepy cats and napping kittens for its annual photography competition.

Centred on the theme of “cat naps”, 2017’s calendar – in association with Your Cat magazine – is searching for beautiful and unique images of cats asleep or resting. They can be groups of cats, single cats, in weird or wonderful locations, or simply curled up.

Once complete, the calendar will be sold (alongside other published materials) to raise funds for ICC.

Twelve winning images will be selected by judges from ICC and Your Cat for the calendar, while all images entered may also be used in other ICC materials and on the charity’s social media.


The overall winner of the competition will receive £500, plus a year’s subscription to Your Cat.

Other winners will receive £100 each and all winning photographers will be sent a certificate, three copies of the calendar and a selection of ICC merchandise.

Winners will also be invited to attend the charity’s annual awards event at Kensington Roof Gardens in London.

The competition closes on 15 May, with winners announced on ICC’s social media shortly after.

Further details, including full terms and conditions, can be found on ICC’s photo competition page.
