Dog Photographer Of The Year 2017 Winners

The Kennel Club has announced the winners of its annual Dog Photographer of the Year competition. Now in its twelfth year, the international competition received almost 10,000 entries from 74 different countries around the globe, including Canada, Russia, Brazil and New Zealand.

Overall Winner and Man’s Best Friend 1st Place Winner Maria Davison Ramos, Portugal

Maria Davison from Portugal has been selected as the overall winner of the competition with an image of an adorable puppy resting his head, which was placed first in the ‘Man’s Best Friend’ category.

After finding out she had won the world’s largest canine photography competition, Maria 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.”

All category winners will have their images on display at the Kennel Club in Mayfair, London and have won a SmugMug business account to showcase their work online and a one day course at the prestigious Nikon School in London, as well as a trophy and exhibition print presented during an award ceremony in September.
