Rules and Regs

2009

I know i loved the halloween contest last year- and i've decided that since no one took the initiative to start the next one- we just couldn't sit back and watch the cb go without a contest!

Our dear friends over at Zoolatry, made us new badges for your side bar!
You can use them and link back here!


Hansel even made voting badges for your sidebar! (shabby, we know, but we tried.)

Like previous contests- there will be a log in for all the CB
to just join in and put up their entry.


WE will start taking entries NOW! And, you don't have to be super creative. Just have your beautiful (or incredibly handsome for the mancats) face in a costume ready for halloween.

Contest is open to ALL cats, woofies, and other furry creatures.

Post an entry- with ONE photo please, of your best costume. And,
each baby in a home can have their own post.
So, if you have a home with 5 cats, and wish to enter all 5, you can do so.

Entries will be accepted until October 31st, at 600 pm EST.

We already have a spot being sponsored by the lovely Laila & Minchie, for category of FUNNIEST CAT COSTUME category!

I will be give a prize out to the
BEST CAT IN SHOW category.

The Kitty Crew
will be sponsoring the
Best Photoshop Costume Category!

The Island Cats will be sponsoring the
Viewers Choice Costume Category! (that includes photoshop)

Baby Patches
will be sponsoring the
Cutest Costume Category!

Siku The White Dog is going to sponsor the
Best Dog Costume Category!

Siku The White Dog, is also sponsoring a brand new kind of category,
the Excuses Why I'm NOT Dressed Up Category.
(Explanation from Siku: "Hansel, Best Reason for Not Wearing a Costume but Still Deserving Treats category is for who are not a clothes wearing woofie or cat but who want to still get into the fun. Send Hansel your best reason for not dressing up along with your case for why you should get treats; creativity counts!...for example: i don't wear costumes because i am a member of the actor's union and cannot perform without minimum wage but i deserve treats because i am a STARVING artist and i will remember you when i become a STAR!")
this makes it possible for EVERYONE to play! Obviously this category will be only for
those not dressing up or photo shopping. Best excuse wins a prize!

If you are interested in sponsoring a category of your choice, please email us at:
FLOOFY MC FLUFFERSON AT GMAIL DOT COM
But as of right now, we have 7 categories, and 7 prizes!

And let me tell you, they're great prizes!

Some rules:
  1. Please put your name in the title line of the entry.

  2. You do NOT need to specify a category that you are trying to win. And, if you are sponsoring the contest with a prize, yes, you can still enter
3. please do NOT add music or anything that will slow up other's computers.

4. Photoshop costumes are accepted, however, since those poor kitties that have to actually wear the costumes have to endure the embarrassment and harassment from other kitties, they will generally win a category over a photoshop. sorry!

5. Like the contests before, finalists WILL be announced. No voting will be possible until finalists determined, and a poll will be opened. This date is november 1st. You can vote until the following night, monday, nov 2nd. Hopefully each category will have finalists.

6. I encourage you to point out your entry to your friends,
because if we have a sponsor for viewer's choice, you could really use your friends!

7. Rules are subject to change. Please have fun!

8. All furries can have their own post on here. So, if you are 4 animals in
one home, each animal can have ONE post with ONE picture. :)

Winners will be announced Wednesday November 3rd.

Get goin!

Gracie said...

This looks like a great idea! I love the Halloween wallpaper you have. I will have to come back witht he mom and reread the rules again.

The Kool~Kittie~Krew said...

It's furry Spooktacualr offur here!!! We totally LOVE it!!! Pandora is gonna dress in a costume and we'll submit her pic when it's done!

The Kitty Krew said...

What fun! This is our first Halloween on the Blogosphere so we're excited to see what all is happening. The likelihood of us wearing anything real is slim, but we may see if The Mommy will do something 'photoshopped' even if we don't have much of a chance to win. It's the fun that counts! :D

Purrs and hugs,
The Kitty Krew

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Good job, Hansel. We'll be looking forward to seeing the costumes.

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

The only thing that would make your page spookier, Hansel, would if it included a scary grey-blue haunted house with purple trim! You and mom did a great job!Can't wait to see everyone's costumes!

Mack and Sally Ann said...

I want to enter, but I can't seem to figure out how to sumbit my picture. Please excuse my ignorance. Please let me know how, or perhaps could you send me a link to enter. I might already be entered, but I am unsure.
Thanks,
Sally Ann

Hana said...

I'm trying to catch up with everyone's blogs. I am woefully behind :-(

Your new backgrounds and banners are awesome and your contest rocks! You sure know how to have fun. You're the best!

Hana said...

I must be blind or woozy today. Did you give instructions on how to vote? We wait until all pics are posted?... when and how do we vote?

Name: Mr. Hendrix said...

oh boy! now i'll have a reason to cooperate when mommy dresses me up in my costume. i won't like it, but i do love a good contest!

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

How IS voting going to happen? Will you post a side bar? For each category? Or Fill in Blank thing? Also, we need to put up excuse category. Also, Also, a couple of woofies have had trouble with trying to enter their photos (I think Mack and Sally already left a comment about this). I am so excited and I just want EVERYONE to be able to enter and vote without hitch! Thanks for doing so much work to make this happen.

Hana said...

I just posted my photo but not so much for the contest. I just think it's fun to participate. :-)

Just want to comment that the login and password are all lowercase. I thought they were all uppercase and when that didn't work, I tried lowercase.

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Hansel, Best Reason for Not Wearing a Costume but Still Deserving Treats category is for who are not a clothes wearing woofie or cat but who want to still get into the fun.

Hana said...

Hansel, would you mind changing one of the settings so that we can see more (all?) of the photos on the main page without having to click on "Older Post"?

Great pics everyone! Thanks for setting this up, Hansel! I definitely need a new costume for next year. Everyone looks pawsome!

Halloween Spooktacular! said...

the best way to do that too is use the archive. It helps a lot- and cuts down loading time. I guess we can try it, but if it gets too long, it'll make loading times really long for older computers.

Scout 'n Freyja said...

We are confused about the sponsoring part. Do we enter here or on the blog that is sponsoring a category? We have several entries in the digital part but don't know what to do!

Hana said...

You are right about the loading times. MY computer is very slow! The blog archive is the way to go!

Scout 'n Freyja said...

Confused time again! Contest was to close last night and now it's changed to tonight, right? I feel like my head is spinning, BOL!

Wasn't around last year so I didn't think the rules would change but you did say they would so I guess I shouldn't be shocked☺

Scout 'n Freyja said...

BTW, were you aware that an under pop-up comes on for PacMan on this page? There must be an href attached to your poll.

Halloween Spooktacular! said...

no i wasn't aware of the pop-up--- and the poll said it was going to close on nov 2nd.... none of that changed. :) everything was the same with voting.
