Welcome back to the 7th Annual and Final Cat Hat Photo Contest, ever!

We’ve given away 18 Custom Cat Hats over the past 6 years and we’re excited to give away 3 more this year!

The 2017 edition is unique – this year, we are requiring all the photographs to fit within our theme:

“The most EPIC festival photo!”

Read on to find out more!

Come back to this page to enter, on September 4th, 2017![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text=”Contest Rules” font_container=”tag:h2|font_size:45px|text_align:center|color:%23000000″ google_fonts=”font_family:Fauna%20One%3Aregular|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal”][vc_column_text]

Have you participated in our Photo Contests before? Well, it’s remained basically the same over the past seven years, but this is how it goes:

In order for each photograph to be valid there are only five simple rules:

1) There needs to be at least one Cat Hat (Cat Hats brand) in the photograph.

2) The photograph cannot have anything to do with the contest judges (Carmz & Stu-zilla) – they cannot be in the photograph at all nor can they be the one to took the photograph.

3) No more than two images per person can be submitted.

4) The photograph must fit within this year’s theme: ‘the most EPIC festival photo”

* Usually, the contest is limited to the past photographs taken within the past calendar year, but this time it’s open to ALL PHOTOGRAPHS!

How do you make sure your photo is a winner?

– First place will be awarded to the best overall photograph, decided by us, the judges! Emotion, lighting, props, setting and originality are what we are looking for when choosing who’s photo will come out on top.

– Second place is determined by online popular vote on www.facebook.com – through the Contest App on our page: @CatHatCommunity

– Third place winner is determined by random draw – for every photo you enter into the contest your name goes in to the draw once, so if you take advantage of your photo submission limit (two photos) you are maximizing your chances of winning!
