Animus Character Casting Competition Winter 2014 successfully ended!

Once again we organised a Character Casting Competition and one lucky winner would get a personalised story in one of our upcoming books!

CONGRATULATIONS to our glorious winners!

1st place: NOMO (Jube Jube) (Courtney Ross) (196 votes) - Main character in a short story, published around Christmas 2015 AND a drawing of the winning pet (published here and sent via email)
2nd place: NEWALI (Julia Hayes) (194 votes) - Secondary character in short story, published around Christmas 2015 AND a signed copy of THE FAT ADVENTURES OF MEOWHAUSEN
3rd place: CLEO (Sylvie Bergeron) (183 votes) - A signed copy of THE FAT ADVENTURES OF MEOWHAUSEN

As per our custom, we also selected a couple of winners from those who did not make the finals, as well. And since the competition was so extremely popular and all contestants worked so hard to get their pets noticed, we decided, this once, to take not just the top three finalists to Animus, but the top FOUR!
Surprise Award: THOREEN (Doreen Kimba)
Writer's Choice Award: SIMBA (Jane Hammond)
Illustrator's Choice Award: ABBY ROAD (Sandy Wuerch)

Our next competition will be held in spring 2015—so keep your eyes open!
