For the past 12 years, The Kennel Club has held an annual contest of Dog Photographer Of The Year, a competition where photographers from all over the world can submit their doggie pictures in several categories, including ‘Rescue Dogs’, ‘Dogs at Work’ and of course, ‘Puppies’.
The entries for the contest are amazing and this year’s overall winner was Maria Davison, from Portugal, who captured a black puppy snuggling next to her human’s leg. The image is stunning and will be displayed, along with the other winners, in Mayfair, London at The Kennel Club.
