Thousands of already-viral cat videos were submitted to the competition over a period of a few months. Katie Czarniecki Hill, organizer of the event, and a select group of reviewers, narrowed the number of videos for the show to 75. All were shown continuously for 79 minutes.
The Golden Kitty Award for the best video went to Henri 2, Paw de Deux .and its creator William Brandon, who accepted the award with grace, saying "I don't think I've ever purred this loudly!"
In case, like most of us, you missed the grand cat video event, you can watch them all on The Walker Art Center YouTube Channel. Once you watch these videos, you may be inclined to vote for your own Best In Show here.
