Photography competition 2014

We have our overall winner!

Congratulations to Carl Welsby, for this stunning photograph of his house cat Holly. 


Carl, pictured with Holly, 
the star of the picture

Carl and his wife got Holly as a kitten from a local farm at Christmas time – hence her seasonal name. She joined them, and their sheep, chickens and Jasper the terrier (who Holly is very much the boss of!), on their smallholding in Wales. Carl took this picture from the outside, looking in through their lounge window.

The judges of the competition unanimously voted for this picture as the overall winner and Carl will now receive £500, have his picture feature on the cover of iCatCare's calendar, plus receive a year's subscription to Your Cat Magazine.

We were also delighted to hear that Carl, as a result of winning, has been encouraged to take his photography more seriously and has gone on to set up his own photography website, showcasing some of his other fantastic pictures. Read our interview with Carl Welsby to find out more.

Overall we had nearly 3,000 entires for the competition, from 48 different countries. The 12 amazing winners, of which Carl is the overall winner can be viewed below. They also all now feature in our stunning 2015 'Cats for all seasons' calendar.
