I recently announced here on Dash Kitten that I had won several Certificates from the Cat Writers’ Association (CWA) something of which I am very proud.
The certificates have arrived and I want to share some of the splendid Certificates, and the winning images, below but first I want to share the CWA’s latest and most exciting news.
- What do you do when Covid-19 compels you to cancel a major event?
You celebrate around the world and do it ONLINE!
Meet the cosiest, and most glamorous cat event of 2020.
Glammies to Jammies
The CWA annual conference has been transformed into a magical online celebration and prize-giving ceremony.
The fun graphic below is being used to spread the word about the event, and fundraising they will be doing for Tabby’s Place a rescue local to the original conference’s venue.
You are warmly welcomed to join us on Saturday the 8th of August.
Two of My CWA Certificates
I present two of my photographs with the beautiful Certificates from the CWA. The Certificates encourage me to develop my photography skills much further and I am grateful for the vote of confidence from the CWA.
You may remember ‘Dot Roars’.
Dot’s image perhaps because I shared it when we lost our beloved girl. The picture captures her amazing cattitude and I have had a print created by Snapfish.
The second photograph is from my favourite cat Neko Ngeru Cat Adoption Cafe.
Chenzou at the Cat Cafe
Chenzou was a big part of Neko Ngeru‘s ‘meet and greet’ team of cats until his retirement earlier this year. He now lives at home but he is one of the happiest and most welcoming cats you could hope to meet.
Featured Photo ‘Love at the Cat Cafe’
You can find my favourite certificate winner on the Neko Ngeru front page. Scroll down past their cute slides and see ‘Love at the Cat Cafe’. As I presented the rights to Richelle Okada who is the subject of my photograph, I will not post the photo here.
