Joey Wins the Photojournalism Prize!
By David Loneragan | Dated August 4, 2017
Sadly, Joey did not win clinic cat of the year. His race to the top was thwarted by his arch nemesis – Norman from Toowong Family Vet, Queensland. He is looking forward to taking Norman down next year.

In good news, Joey did win the photojournalism award! This is awarded “for best photos of a day in the life of a clinic cat”. He is ecstatic about the win, has told all his friends and has mentioned quietly that he couldn’t have done it without Nurse Janie.
Joey took out the photojournalism prize for being amazingly photogenic (Janie helped slightly…)
Thanks to everyone who voted and we will keep you posted about when voting opens next year so we can take that smile of Norman’s face and put it on Joey’s!
Joey has graciously thanked Janie in interviews since the win.
