It's the Internet's favourite time of year -- the #catvidfest People's Choice Award.

The coveted Golden Kitty Award for the Internet's best cat video is now open for public voting. This means, until July 18, you've got an excuse for searching cat videos on YouTube.

First, it was Henri, Le Chat Noir, then it was Grumpy Cat. Who will be this year's winner of the coveted Golden Kitty Award?

After a year of watching "hundreds of cat videos", and reviewing nominations, the Walker Art Center jurors have presented five contenders.

"8 Signs of Addiction" tells the story of a black cat "addicted" to its toy banana. However, it's fairly clear the real addiction on show is the owner's obsession with filming his cat.

"An Engineer's Guide to Cats, 2.0", expands an earlier tutorial on cats. In mockumentary style, two straight-faced guys reveal far too much about both themselves and their cats. Almost nine minutes long, this clip will never go viral.

"Gotcha!", on the other hand, will have even self-professed dog people laughing out loud. Two words: Too cute. One word: Winner.

"Jedi Kittens" may appeal to the nerdier of online cat fans, but for bona fide Golden Kitty material, it's far too crafted.

At the other end of the spectrum, "Milo Wanted Attention" is too "humble-brag" to be funny. Plus, the cat's just not that cute.

The public can vote on Twitter, or on the website. Voting closes July 18, and the winners will be revealed at the 2014 Internet Cat Video Festival on August 14.
