iCatCare announced the winners of the Street Cats photography competition of 2017. The winnners are all going to feature in the iCatCare 2018 calendar. iCatCare launched the competiton in April of this year. There were six weeks to enter and the aim of the street cat theme was to raise awareness of cats that are considered to be strays, feral or community cats and their plight.
iCatCare received over 2,100 photographs from all over the world. The images were varied, with some photos showing cats living in dire conditions to other cats living quite comfortably in areas where Trap Neuter Return is performed.
Here’s a list of the talented winners:
- Jonas Chan
- Mei Catherall
- Chi Keung Wong
- Rachel Hunter
- Catan Ngan
- Seyed Mohammad Fallah Firouzkouhi
- Christine Lam Ying Loi
- Igor Taranenko
- Tulyawat Mahawong
- Heiko Damme
The overall winner was announced in London at the iCatCare’s Annual Awards ceremony on July 14. Catan Ngan won for his photo of a cat that was from the Hong Kong community. The judges praised the image for it’s composition, colours and the presence of the cat in the photograph. Catan won the award, £500 and his photo will be the cover of the charity’s 2018 calendar.
Eve Davies, organiser of the Street Cats competition said that picking the winner was very difficult, which is a testament to the quality of the entrees that were received. It is hoped that the annual charity calendar will raise funds and awareness.
