Are you a cat mom or dad? Do you constantly bombard your group chats with adorable photos of your feline friend? If the answer is yes, then you should seriously consider entering our Cutest Cat Contest. If you win, you’ll get a full page photo in Washingtonian with the cat’s name and bio, plus a professional photo shoot (yes, you can keep all the photos).

Enter here

All entrants will receive a digital faux Washingtonian “Cutest Cat” cover with your cat’s image and name and a feature in Washingtonian.com’s “Cutest Cat Contest” photo gallery.

Each submission fee is $30, with a portion of the proceeds to benefit Humane Rescue Alliance. The top 10 cutest cats will be voted on by Washingtonian.com readers and the winner from the top 10 cutest cats will be chosen by a panel of judges from Washingtonian and our beneficiary, Humane Rescue Alliance. The judges will base their determination on the creativity of the description and photogenic photo. Deadline to enter is April 2nd at 11:59pm. Voting for the top 10 entries will be open April 4 – April 8. The winner will be announced after voting has ended. Multiple entries are permitted.

This contest is sponsored by DC Lottery.
