FRISKIES Calendar Contest

Friskies PetCare Company, Inc. has a casting call for its annual Friskies Calendar Photo Contest and there's a chance to win $2,500, a year's supply of Friskies® canned and dry cat food and the coveted cover placement for the calendar.

Each year, 12 of the friskiest cats make the calendar. Cats will be judged on their beauty, appearance, frisky nature and you must submit a horizontal color print not larger than 5 by 7 in sharp focus along with its 35 mm negative and a 25-word description of why the cat is a winner.

Photographs of cats in action in an indoor setting are preferred. Judging criteria is based on originality of the cat's friskiness (50 percent) and photo quality (50 percent). Postmark deadline for the contest is March 15, 2002 and the entries must be received by March 29, 2002.
