The charity, which undertakes feline welfare projects across the globe, wanted to find exceptional images of cats, celebrating their unique appeal. They teamed up with Digital Photographer and Your Cat Magazine to launch the competition, which ran for two months.

The winners have been chosen by a panel of judges including International Cat Care CEO Claire Bessant, Digital Photographer features editor, Hayley Paterek, and Your Cat magazine editor Sue Parslow.  

The first prize is a luxury weekend safari break for two at the picturesque Port Lympne Wild Animal Park, Kent, which includes lavish tented accommodation overlooking a watering hole where a variety of African animals, such as zebras, giraffes and rhinos drink - offering plenty of magical photo opportunities. 

The winning entries can be viewed on International Cat Care’s Pinterest page. A link to this can be found on the www.icatcare.org home page.
