It's not the first cat video contest ever, but this one is offering a major prize -- $15,000 goes to the video deemed the best internet cat video of 2012.

Even if you don't win first prize, all the finalists get a one-year supply of cat food, and the four category winners each get $2,500. Deadline for submission to "The Friskies" is October 12th, so you better get to filming, if you want to win. Thanks, Friskies, for the deluge of cat videos about to bombard us!
