And the winner is…

We are facing a little problem as our jury came back to us with two ex-aequo photos by Debbie Hogan and Helen Ivory Ward for our March photo competition.  We thus went back to the original Facebook votes and attributed the prize to the photo who had the most votes them.
Debbie Hogan with her photo “Clyde” is therefore the winner of the March competition and will be able to have her favourite picture of her pet painted by Katrina Tracuma!  Congratulations!

However, we couldn’t leave Helen with nothing, so she will receive a copy of Illusion by Brenda Tilsey Gibson for her photo “Stan, Mouse and Red”.

Thank you to all the participants who shared their wonderful photos with us, but most importantly helped the animals in our care by doing so.  We’d also like to thank the public on Facebook, as well as our jury, who had the difficult task to choose only one out of the five beautiful pictures shortlisted.  Finally, thank you to Jill Roberts for her support in offering this prize.

Well done to all!

November 2011 Photo Competition

Every month we offer a different prize to the winner.  Moreover, the winning photo will be displayed on our website, blog and Facebook page, as well as become the cover for the following issue of our booklet of creative writing, Furry Tales and Meowsings (note that we will ask you to sign a very simple form authorising us to do that).

To enter the competition, it’s simple.  You first need to go to our website and buy a photo competition entry here.  You can buy more than one entry (and use them either to submit more than one photo or keep them for following months) as we will keep track of how many you buy and use.  Make sure that you write down the reference number that is given to you (it should also appear in the confirmation email).  The entry costs €3.50 and the money will exclusively be used for the welfare of animals.

Next, send your photo (it must be related to animals) along with your reference number and your details (name, address, email and phone number) to photos@animalcaresociety.ie.  You can send more than one photo, but make sure you have bought the necessary amount of entries as submissions without a valid reference number will be refused.

You can send your photos as soon as we announce the competition and until the 20th of the month.  Photos will then be displayed in an album on Facebook, where people can vote for them by clicking “like”.  On the last day of the month, the five photos with the most votes will go to a judging panel who will select the winning photo and announce it in the next few days.

This month, we are really pleased to offer a lovely Christmas hamper from one of our devoted supporters, Liz McGroarty, to the winner of the competition.  It contains many treats that will put you in the Christmas spirit.  Note that the kitten is not part of the prize, but only doing quality control!

What are you waiting for?  Grab your camera and send us a photo!  We look forward to seeing them…

Many thanks to Liz for her much appreciated support.
