I pmailed HQ to ask them if there was going to be a World's Coolest Contest this year because if I remember correctly, it usually occurs around this time.
Here is what watch cat wrote back to me:
To be honest, we're wondering, too. With all the work the Techno Cats have been doing lately, at the very least, WCDCS would likely have to be moved back in order to prepare it properly. I know WCDCS is being talked about by the Community Team. Site Updates is where any announcement(s) would be made.
Meows! & Purrrrsssss
So, I guess we'll have to wait and see. I told them it sure would help with the morale around here!
Thanks Samoa, Did you ask about the themes for the comp?????
Just a thought. Thanks for checking on it for us. Purrs Sam
And I hope those techno cats are working overtime, because I just got an error 4 when I posted a comment!
We joined last year just when the contest was starting to come an end. We have been looking forward to trying our hand at it this year. So, I guess we are waiting with you.
Thank you for asking HQ and sharing their response. We love the contest, seeing all the great photos and making some new friends too.
Momma's been making me yawn and snapping pictures.
I hope all my effort won't go to waste! *yawn*
Wow. That would be a real shame if the contest were delayed or cancelled. Always fun to see all the photos. Thanks for the update, Samoa.
i guess we will wait too.
Hope there will be one.
What's the World's Coolest Contest?
Samhain - the World's Coolest Contest has been going on for 6 years. It is held by Catster/Dogster, and there are pawsome prizes. There are several categories, and you upload a photo of yours that fits each category. Then you get to vote on all the entries. We used to earn zealies when we voted. The top vote getters are the semi-finalists, and then a panel of judges picks a winner in each category. Then cats get to vote again - this time for Best in Show. The Best in Show is one cat chosen from each of the finalists. The contest is usually going on now, but it looks like if they have it, it will be delayed. So in the meantime, be looking through your pictures. Some of the categories include: Costumes and Shades, Outdoors, Yawn, Sitting, Daredevil, Sleep, etc. Here is a link where you can see last year's winners and each category.
Thanks for sharing that info, I hope they don't cancel it.
Gosh, Samoa I can't wait! Thanks for the info on how the contest is judged, Mom didn't know.
if sum kitteh ...haza beerd...does knot get ta enter hiz pick sure this yeer....for coztoomes N shades...this iz sad for mor N one reezon....period...
Thanks, Samoa! This sounds like fun, and we just read the rules and don't see anything about restrictions on when the photos were taken. So I'm assuming that if there's one of Maya who went to the bridge years back, that it would still be illegible, do you think?
Sleeper - as long as you're on Catster, you can enter the contest - so angels are allowed to enter too!
cool! Especially since I just wrote illegible instead of eligible - MOL!
I was wondering about this too. Come on Catster! I dont understand how they could not be doing it. Its one of the things that I really look forward to here every year.
It was fun, but we are not sure meowmy has enough time to do this this year, but we will vote on any of our furry furends that may be entering...if it happens!
Thanks for the info Samoa! We'll keep checking for updates!
