Dogster And Catster’s 3rd Annual World’s Coolest Dog & Cat Show Photo Competition

It’s time once again for everybody’s favorite “pet social networking sites” — Dogster and Catster, that is (and it’s one of my favorites, though your experience may vary) — to hold it’s annual “World’s Coolest Dog & Cat Show Photo Competition.”

This is no dog and pony show, no. This is a dog and cat show (did I say that already?). And the best thing about it (probably) is that it’s open to all dogs and cats of any breed or non-breed. Second best thing? Absolutely free. Third? Fifteen categories for both dogs and cats, and lots of cool prizes to the winners.

All you need is a camera and a dog or a cat. (And a way to get the pictures of the dog or cat onto a computer, of course, but if you are reading this, I’m guessing you can do that… and I’m also guessing that many many many of you already have dog and cat pages up on Dogster and Catster, yes?)

I bet you think you have the cutest, most wonderfulest cat or dog or dog or cat in the world and you want to share those photos and win lots of fabulous prizes. So here’s the thing. First, we want to see them at Itchmo (we’re kind of proud of our readers, and want them to show off a bit), so first we’d love you to post some of those photos to our flickr group. If you can’t do that, but you do want to share with us, you can also email them to Then, once you’re absolutely satisfied that you’ve shared properly with us, head on over to the show pages at and read the rules and regulations on how to enter your pet and win fabulous prizes.

And when you do win? Come back here, won’t you, and brag a bit? Because we’d love to show off your prize-winning pets almost as much as you do. You can email us at the above address, or post a comment on this here announcement.

And, of course, finally, good luck. I mean, I’ll be entering my pets too, so you’ll need some luck, yes?
