The Pet Industry's Leading Resource for News & Content Distribution

WARWICK, R.I. (June 17, 2014) Cat Writers’ Association, Inc (CWA) is announcing a call for entries for their annual Communications Contest. CWA invites all cat lovers who publish, write or broadcast information about cats to enter their work for consideration.

Qualified entries are evaluated by professional members of the Cat Writers’ Association. Certificates of Excellence are sent to people whose entries receive an average score of 90 or higher by three professional CWA members. The certificate recipient with the highest score is the winner of the Muse Medallion for the category in which it was entered.

In addition to the Muse Medallions, special awards that feature cash prizes for the winner are offered through the generosity of corporate and private sponsors.

Lorie Huston, board-certified veterinarian and president of CWA, explains the importance of this year’s contest collaboration with BarkWorld.

“The biggest event of the year for Cat Writers’ Association is the annual conference, which brings together the best and the brightest in the pet industry. The conference provides an opportunity for attendees to learn and hone their craft,” Dr. Huston said. “That is even truer this year, with a new partnership between the Cat Writers’ Association and BarkWorld, a premier pet expo and social media conference. The conference will culminate in a gala event; an awards banquet during which the winners of the annual Cat Writers’ Association Communications Contest will be announced. It’s an exciting event, not to be missed.”

The Communications Contest is open to both CWA members and non-members and entries must be postmarked by July 1, 2014. There are categories in the contest for almost any cat-related topic. All forms of media are represented, including published writings (both online and in print), artwork, photographs, and radio or television work.

For more information regarding the contest rules, award categories or entering work, please visit the Cat Writers’ Association website. CWA also invites membership applications and encourages all cat lovers to register for the annual CWA conference.
