Dog Photograph of the Year Competition

“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.

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.”
