Each year, the Cat Writers’ Association selects the best entries and awards them with Certificates of Excellence. The highest-scoring Certificate-winning entry in each category receives a Muse Medallion at our Annual Awards Ceremony. Anything published during 2022 may be entered, and that includes writing, photography, art, graphic design, and more. Anyone (including those outside the United States) can enter, not just members!
