THE KENNEL CLUB AWARDS

It’s a mystery how they did it. Somehow, UK animal welfare organisation The Kennel Club managed the intimidating task of picking the winners of the Dog Photographer of the Year competition. A pool of over 10,000 adorable photos flooded in from 74 different countries, however it was Portuguese photographer Maria Davison who came out as top dog.

Davison’s photo captured her friend’s rescue pup, Yzma, a golden retriever cross, resting his head against her friend’s battered canvas shoe. Yzma’s soulful brown eyes and his need to be reassuringly glued to his human in the photo are irresistible. The image also placed first in the ‘Man’s Best Friend’ category.

Other categories in the comp cover working dogs, playing dogs, rescues, assistance dogs, oldies, puppies, and more. All the winners, second, and third placing entries in each category are on display at the Kennel Club until the end of August.

ISSUE NINE — BUY NOW

In our Spring issue, there’s much to be in high spirits about. We go behind the scenes of Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs, a movie fuelled by dopamine, alpha dogs, and a vast crew of artisans and animators. We hang with a pack of trippy-looking poodles created by artist Susumu Kamijo. We find five mutts who changed history by injecting their human counterparts with a good dose of serotonin. There is plenty of oxytocin going around, too. We celebrate Sulek’s photography of rescued Spanish galgos, Jo Longshurst’s abstract twist on pet portraiture, and Ho Hai Tran’s love of stripes and spots. We travel to Berlin, Toronto, London, and upstate New York to meet creative types whose bonds with their four-legged mates are as heartfelt as they are intoxicating. We ask five foodies to fess up about dog snacks and guilty pleasures that feed body and soul, and we embrace illustrator Apolline Muet’s bear hugs between humans and animals.
All this, and more, inside the covers.
