Calling all cat lovers! The annual Cats Of The World Photo Exhibition and Purrzaar will be back in August 2013 at The Arts House, with a new category dedicated to cat photos uploaded on Instagram.
Launched in 2007, this non-profit community project showcases snapshots of cats in unique situations or settings (be it in Singapore or overseas), and which capture their colourful personalities. The proceeds from the sale of shortlisted photos and postcards will go to the Cat Welfare Society, a non-profit organisation that strives to improve the welfare of stray cats in Singapore.
Think your photographs of cats can make the cut? There’s still time! Submit those photos to the organisers at firstname.lastname@example.org by May 30, 2013. For more information on the photo criteria, visit www.gattidelmondo.blogspot.com.
This year, there is also a new category that will appeal to the Instagram-loving generation of today. All you have to do is add the hashtag #catsoftheworldphotoexhibition to your cat photo when you upload it on Instagram for a chance to be shortlisted. Make sure your Instagram profile is set to public so the organisers are able to see your hashtagged photos. Shortlisted Instagram photos will be printed in smaller prints.
Besides the photo exhibition, you can also look forward to three Saturdays (August 3, 10 and 17) of Purrzaar, a lifestyle market with vendors selling quirky cat-themed merchandise.
The animal-crazy team at Material World are proud to announce that we are the official media partner of Cats Of The World Photo Exhibition and Purrzaar. Watch this space for more updates!
