I’m honored that my article The Truth About Dry Cat Food won a Petlitzer Prize! The article won in the category for persuasive essay.
The Petlitzer Prize contest was created by Sid Korpi, the award winning author of Good Grief: Finding Peace After Pet Loss and a professional writer and editor with more than 20 years’ experience, to recognize quality literary works for writers who specialize in writing about animals/pets. “It’s the pet writers’ Pulitzer,” says Korpi.
A panel of pet experts judges each entry, and winners are chosen by majority vote. Winners receive a certificate of award and first place receives a beautiful medal.
Judging was difficult, and for this category, the judges were tied, resulting in two first place winners. Congratulations to fellow winner Sara Henderson. For more on the Pelitzers, and to read the winning entries, please visit Sid Korpi’s website.
