GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) — Organizers of the annual international ArtPrize competition in Michigan say an Internet Cat Video Festival will be part of this year’s event.

The free Sept. 27 showing at Rosa Parks Circle in downtown Grand Rapids is being put on by the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis. The art center last year held its inaugural Internet Cat Video Festival, and the museum has a partnership with ArtPrize.

Organizers are taking submissions and there will be a People’s Choice award. Plans for the celebration of cat videos were reported Monday by WOOD-TV.

The fifth edition of ArtPrize takes place Sept. 18 to Oct. 6. The competition has $560,000 at stake, including a $200,000 first prize.

The public picks some winners and there also are juried awards.
