THE 2019 NATIONAL DOG PORTRAIT AWARDS
WHAT ARE THE NATIONAL DOG PORTRAIT AWARDS?
The National Dog Portrait Awards is a new photography competition open to dogs and their owners across the UK. We’re on a mission to find the nation’s best professional dog portrait and most photogenic pooch. Whether you’ve got a Poodle with oodles of personality, or a debonair Doberman, we want to see them captured in all their glory.
But it’s not just glory that you and your furry friend will win.
There are fantastic prizes for the best three portraits, including a top prize of £1500 cash and a £500 framed print of your photo. Entry costs just £10 and all profits will go to UK dog charities voted for by you.
WHEN IS IT HAPPENING?
The competition kicks off in January 2019, with a deadline for submissions the following September. Once all entries have been received the best 250 will be selected for a people’s vote on social media. This will give a final shortlist of 50 which will be published in October. The three winners will be chosen by an expert judging panel and announced in November 2019.
WHAT ARE THE PRIZES?
Cash prizes for the winner and two runners up.
The top dog and their owner will receive £1500 cash, with an additional £1000 and £500 for second and third spots.
All winners will receive a £500 canvas of their portrait.
The photographers who take the three winning portraits will also get their own prizes.
Anne Worle Photography is delighted to be one of the studios chosen for this competition to immortalise the nations pooches!
