Big Cat Photography & Artwork Contest

Winners Announcement and Features


:+favlove: Please add this news article to your favorites to help spread the big cat love. :+favlove:


We are absolutely thrilled to announce the winners for the Big Cat Photography & Artwork Contest. Thank you very much to those who have followed this contest, to those who have participated in this contest and to those who have been kind enough to donate prizes and journal/blog features. We are extremely thankful and appreciative for everything. Our judges have worked very hard to put this contest together to show love, appreciation and respect toward the big cats who deserve all of that and so much more. We have done our absolute best to ensure that everything has been done as fairly as possible and that no one person wins more than one prize (with the exception of Individual Species Overall Winners since that is an extension to the main Individual Species winners). And so, without further ado...

Winners will be contacted within 24-48 hours. Journal entry code will be sent out as soon as possible to those who are featuring the winners on their journals and group blogs.
