Beginner Cat Photo Skills

Mono Awards Cat Photo Submission

Today’s selfie is of Miranda our arrow attack survivor. I am really pleased with it.

I am excited to be submitting Miranda’s image to the Mono Photography Awards for 2024! As an amateur, my submission ($17) costs much less than professional photographers. Professionals must gain half their annual income to be considered the level above ‘amateur’ and the competition is fierce.

I try to submit an image each year to the Monos when the ‘early bird pricing’ in active (ends July 7th) but as the winning images are not announced until January 2025 I won’t be holding my breath!

I received a Mono Awards Commended Certificate in 2020 for my portrait of Chenzou which was a big thrill. If I can do it, maybe you can take a look at your images and see if one of them is submission worthy. Seriously, this isn’t about perfection, it is about a special one-off image that might capture the judges attention.

“We are open to all points of view, all levels of expertise, and all ideas of black and white photography.

Mono Awards

Take a look at the Awards statement. It mentions all levels of expertise, that means if your cat photo is a little bit special (in black and white) you can enter. You do not need to be an expert. If you look at the ‘Professional’ category you will see how astonishing high level photographers can be.

  1. We love effurry picture of you, Marjorie, and this one of sweet Mirande sure is a winner😸😺Double Pawkisses for a Happy Day and Good Luck on the contest🐾😽💞

    • Sadly, they did not catch them. I don’t think they would consider an idiot with a crossbow a danger as it’s not a human being shot.

  2. Wow! That is so beautiful! Her rapt attention sure is focused on something ‘up there’!

    Hope it will be an award worthy image!

  3. Hi Marjorie! 🙂 That is a special and lovely photo of Miranda. I’m glad you entered it in the contest, and hope it does well!
