Call for Submissions for the 2020 Cats of the World Weekly Planner

It's time to submit your photos for the 2020 Cats of the World Weekly Planner featuring Blogging and Social Media Felines. This will be the 7th year the ladies from Sweet Purrfections have put together a calendar featuring blogging cats from around the world. Additionally, this year we hope to include cats of social media in the weekly planner.

It's that time again!  We’re excited to announce that we’re designing the Cats of the World Weekly Planner featuring Blogging and Social Media Felines again for 2020. The spiral bound 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019 calendars were a huge success and everyone was pleased with the quality, so we're moving forward with another one for 2020.  The planner will be an 8 x 10 spiral-bound, weekly planner, with pictures of blogging and social media cats 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 calendar this year.  We will continue to include some helpful advice and information on cats in the weekly planner this year from featured published and blogging authors, so we will be asking for 12-15 volunteers to be featured with a 1-page article (300-500 words) on a special topic about cats. More information for this will come this week through this page and Facebook. If you have a blog and a cat is featured on the blog (even if you blog about dogs, too) or a social media account, you may submit photos of your cat(s) for possible inclusion in the calendar.

Each blog/social media may submit 1-4, which can include one of each of your cats or a group photo of multiple cats. If you have one or two kitties, find the best 1-4 photos and send them to us. We will use the photos in the order they are received and prioritized for a week.  This year we will only use ONE photo per page in the calendar, so please prioritize your photos accordingly. There is a strong possibility more than one photo of cats from your blog may be featured. If we still need more images, we will send out another notice.  

All photos should be “natural” photos of your felines in their environment and not “PhotoShopped”.  We want this calendar to show the beauty of the blogging and social media cats in their natural environment.  The photos MUST be clear, bright, and focused (300 dpi) in order to print well.  The photos should be original photos that haven't been resized. If photos aren't of high quality, an email will be sent asking for additional photos or there is a possibility your photos may not be used.  The photos should be in portrait mode.
Please remove any watermarks or names from the photos prior to submitting. Your blog/social media name and URL address will be included under the photo 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, September 6, 2019.  We’d like to have the weekly planner 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 “2020 Cats of the World Weekly Planner” in the subject line.

Important Information about of what to include in the email:

1.   Send up to 4 photos
2.   Provide the names of the of the cat(s) in the photo.  Ideally, the name of the file would be the name of the cat(s).
