The contest sounds like fun. Now you just need to find something that is the epitome of California and get Zoey the Cool cat to perch on it and snap the image. You will be a winner for sure!

Hey, Folks - There might be a little confusion in that the photography contest isn't mine. Instead, it's being held by the San Diego Union-Tribune. They've held the contest for many years.
