Vote for your favorite archival cat or dog!
In an effort to support the Cleveland Animal Protective League (CAPL), Kate Theimer is hosting a web contest encouraging archivists to “vote” for their favorite archival photos of cats and dogs. A selection of sixteen archival photographs featuring pets will be narrowed down each week in a bracket-style tournament…with the ultimate dog or cat winner being selected during 2015 SAA Conference! The contest will support the work of the CAPL.
Two ways to participate:
- Submit archival photos (unlicensed, sourced from your archives or repository) of a dog OR cat.
- Submissions from outside the U.S. are welcomed.
- Please provide an appropriate credit line for your image.
Voting will begin on or about July 24th at Archives Next.
(Note: We deliberately chose photos of cats and dogs from international archives to illustrate this post, so as not to give an unfair advantage to any American photos we came across — though there were plenty of good ones on Flickr Commons! And we look forward to seeing yours!)
