Cat Writers Association Banquet and Awards Dinner

Join the Cat Writers' Association for a mix 'n mingle at 7:30. The banquet will begin at 8:15 (so those of you pawtying at Pawject Runway don't have to leave early). 

Each year, the Cat Writers’ Association honors the best cat work of the year, recognizing the finalists and winners of the prestigious Muse Medallion™ and corporate awards (this year in excess of $11,000) at a gala Awards Banquet celebration traditionally held during our annual Writers Conference. Sponsors will be in attendance to present awards and meet-and-greet attendees.

Since cats are so concerned about their grooming and appearance, banquet attendees often dress to the nines (lives.) Black tie is in no way required, but as they used to say, “If you got ‘em, wear ‘em.” Bling is encouraged, and in the case of our officers, expected. The Friday night Cat Writers' Association Awards Banquet is ticketed separately.

UPDATE: Banquet tickets are FREE to all nominees and to other CWA & BlogPaws conference attendees on a first come, first serve basis! Once the free tickets run out, you can purchase a deeply discounted ticket at $45/ticket. Register for your free tickets here: http://catwriters.com/wp_meow/cwa-registration/
