Kitty humor+ Illustration Competitions

Your bathroom sink comes with one of these too, right?

You may remember Hudson from this photo.  Need I mention his love of bathrooms?  Anyways.

One of my goals for the year is to enter some competitions.  The deadline for the first one I'm looking at, PEN New England Children's Book Caucus'12th Annual Children's Book Caucus Susan P. Bloom Discovery Award, (yep quite the mouthful,) is fast approaching: February 1st.  I'm going to try to get a final manuscript of the new story idea I'm working on and some sample illustrations done, but if not I'll just submit my illustration work.

I'm working on compiling a list of other ones through out the year.  Any recommendations?
