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 EIGHT — PRE-ORDER NOW

In this issue we challenge stereotypes, big and small. Klaus Dyba’s portraits of hairless dogs embrace the bald and the beautiful, Winnie Au’s fashion-inspired photos take the shame out of the cone, and the stellar lineup in Really Good Dog Photography stir us well away from the obvious fluff. We marvel at artists who can breath life into hounds on paper, screen and space. We travel to the heart of Australia, where dogs can easily become a hungry croc’s lunch. We fall in love with the ultimate four-legged bad-asses (we are looking at you, Brian Griffin) and we hang with farm dogs and their hip humans in the rolling hills of the Hudson Valley. All this, and more, inside the covers.
