‘Dog Photographer Of The Year’ Contest Announces The Winners, And They’re Pawsome



Every year, The Kennel Club, perhaps the oldest recognized canine institution in the world, delights us with pictures from their Dog Photographer Of The Year competition – and makes us fall in love with dogs even more…

The prestigious contest has been running for 12 years now. It received nearly 10,000 entries from 74 countries around the world. The competition has 10 categories, including ‘Puppies’, ‘Assistance Dogs’, ‘Rescue Dogs’, and ‘Dogs At Work’. There’s also a ‘Man’s Best Friend’ category, that showcases photos that capture the deep bond between dogs and humans.

This year, Maria Davison from Portugal won the overall prize with a picture of a black puppy resting by her friend’s feet.Davison said: “This image was already close to my heart and it is one of the photographs I am most proud of. It was not only a beautiful, real and candid moment I got to capture, but also a demonstration of the strong bond between one of my closest friends and her dog, Yzma. Winning not only the Man’s Best Friend category, but also the overall winner prize with this picture feels really good.”

The winning images will be exhibited at the Kennel Club in Mayfair, London.
