    It's almost December and this got me thinking about fun things to do in December and I came up with a little fun game/challenge thingy...

    *drum roll*

    A weekly themed photo challenge - with a vote (and maybe a prize (sponsored by the tonks)).

    Thinking it would run like this:

    Theme 1
    1. 1st to 5th December everyone adds photos
    2. 6th to 7th December everyone votes on their favourites
    3. 8th winner(s) announced
    Theme 2
    1. 9th to 13th December everyone adds photos
    2. 14th to 15th December everyone votes on their favourites
    3. 16th winner(s) announced
    Theme 3
    1. 17th to 21st December everyone adds photos
    2. 22nd to 23rd December everyone votes on their favourites
    3. 24th winner(s) announced
    Final round
    1. 25th - 31st everyone votes on the top photos to pick an overall cat chat cat of the year*
    2. New Years Day 2021 Cat Chat Cat of the Year claims their crown/trophy etc :D
    (Cat chat cat of the year is a work in progress title!)

    Rules would be pretty simple:
    1. Any photo allowed, old or new, as long as it relates to the theme.
    2. This is for fun, not photographic wizardry - so any photos are fine even if you think they are a bit blurry or something. As long as it matches the theme it will be OK :)
    3. If there are too many photos to have a poll then will need to be 2 polls with entries grouped into categories (male and female maybe, or kittens and adults). If we do have to group entries then winners of each group would be put forward into the final round.
    4. You can enter each theme, or you can enter just one theme
    5. You can only enter each theme once (i.e. only one photo per forum user per theme. That photo can have multiple cats tho!)
    6. New (and old) forum members are very welcome to take part :)
    I have no ideas on themes yet, so if you think this is a fun idea and have a suggestion throw them below :D Also the dates may be a bit crazy in terms of getting it all up and running for each theme so I might adjust them to make it more workable!

    I also added a poll to gauge interest :)

    If you think I am just a bit odd then that is fine :D

    I made them very non-complex :D

    My husband has said 'how can you enter your own competition' I may have to amend the rules :D

    I haven't thought up any themes yet, I want them to be as inclusive as possible - so nothing too tricky or too specific. But it's really hard coming up with things!!

    My two would very much object as well, so much so that I don’t think I’d have any skin left on face or arms :eek::Bawling

    No dressing up (well not as a theme but if a cat wearing something happens to fit the theme then that would be ok!).

    I've sent the link to this thread to my mum as she might be interested (she is a member and does have cats).
