Time for Photo Submissions for the 2018 Blogging Cat Calendar



It's that time again!  We’re excited to announce that we’re designing the Blogging Cats Weekly Planner Calendar again for 2018. The spiral bound 2015, 2016, and 2017 calendars were a huge success and everyone was pleased with the quality, so we're moving forward with another one for 2018.  The planner will be an 8 x 10 spiral-bound, weekly planner, with pictures on one page and the week in view on the facing page. We're including special holidays, events in the blogging world, and other pertinent information in the calendars this year.  There are also plans to include some helpful advice health information on cats in the calendar this year, so we may be asking for 12 volunteers to be authors for a 1-page article on a special topic in the calendar.

If you have a blog and a cat (or several cats) is featured on the blog, you may submit photos for possible inclusion in the calendar.

Each blog may submit three to seven photos, which can include one of each of your cats or group pictures of multiple cats. If you have one or two kitties, find the best 3-7 photos and send them to us. We will use the photos in the order they are received to set up a collage of your blog for a week.  This format would allow for approximately 54 blogs.  If we still need more images, we will send out another notice.  

All photos should be “natural” photos of your kitties in their environment and not “photo shopped”.  We want this calendar to show the beauty of the blogging cats in their natural environment.  The photos MUST be clear, bright, and focused in order to print well.  If photos aren't of high quality, an email will be sent asking for additional photos.  The photos should be in a variety of  orientations (portrait, landscape, and square). If you would like to design your own collage and send that to us, please make sure the collage is in portrait mode and measures 8" x 10" at 300 dpi. If you choose to design your own collage, please follow the design of the sample collage below (colored space between the photos). Please remove any watermarks or names from the photos prior to submitting.  Your blog name and URL address will be included on the page and there will be a statement on the title page that acknowledges that the photos are the property of the individuals.

Please send your photos to us by midnight, August 1, 2017.  We’d like to have the calendar completed by the end of September, so we can submit the order to the publisher in time for people to purchase for the holidays. Please send pictures of your cats to us at sweetpurrfections@sc.rr.com.  Make sure you include the phrase “2018 Blogging Cats Calendar” in the subject line

Important Information about of what to include in the email:
  1. Send up to 7 photos 
  2. Provide the names of the of the kitty(ies) in the photo.  Ideally, the name of the file would be the name of the cat(s).

  5. Name of human behind the blog

8" x 10"
