Awards booklet: Pat Decano
2016-17 slideshow co-ordinator: Kathy Durdick
2016-17 "On The Road Again" slideshow co-ordinator: Richard Ashton

Regional Winners and Distinguished Merit Winners

Regional Winners will have their photos featured on the regional website, in the online awards booklet, and the slideshow at the banquet. You need to get a photo of your cat to Pat Decano, who is in charge of the awards booklet, by the deadline of May 15- this is a firm deadline!

Pat will take care of sharing that photo with the regional webmaster, and the person coordinating the slideshow. You may send in more than one photo if you like – just specify which photo should be used for which purpose.

Digital files should be 300 dpi, with the actual photo size no smaller than 3" x 3" - this translates to a file size of around 1000-3000 KB. Please, no postage stamp-sized photos! In many cases, your photographer can provide the correct size for a nominal fee. Digital proofs, such as the ones Chanan sends out after a session, WILL NOT WORK! They are not high-enough resolution. Pat can also accept originals and will return them IF you provide an addressed STAMPED envelope.

Breed Winners

Breed Winners will have their photos featured on the regional website, and the slideshow at the banquet. You need to get a photo of your cat to Kathy Durdick, no later than June 15, in order to have it included in the slideshow. Breed Winner photos can always be added to the website later if you miss that deadline, but will not be part of the slideshow.

You may send in more than one photo if you like – just specify which photo should be used for which purpose.

Because these photos are not printed, they can be a smaller size - the digital proofs you receive in e-mail from Chanan, etc, WILL work for this purpose. File size should be at least 40k.

Grand Champion/Grand Premiers

For the 2016-17 awards banquet, we WILL once again be featuring photos of the Grands during the slideshow. Those photos need to be sent to Kathy Durdick who is coordinating the slideshow, no later than June 1. Grand photos can be sent at any time during the year – and in fact, it would certainly make our job easier if you DO send them in sooner!

Because these photos are not printed, they can be a smaller size - the digital proofs you receive in e-mail from Chanan, etc, WILL work for this purpose. File size should be at least 40k.

On The Road Again

We’d love to have any candid photos taken at shows during the year, traveling, etc for the “On The Road Again” portion of the slideshow. These photos should be sent to Richard Ashton, and please send them in anytime during the year, rather than waiting for the last minute. Please send them no later than June 1.

Photos for the On The Road Again section should be at least 4x6 or 5x7 at 150 dpi.
