Shortlisted - 4th November
I know, I know... you've seen this image a few times! I have to admit, it's one of my favourite images I've taken. Which makes me even more happy to announce that it's been shortlisted in the British Photography Awards for the pet category!
They have changed the layout of the competition this year. There is a public vote for the shortlisted images in each category. This if for the 'People's Choice Award'. The winning images will still be chosen by judges.
The top 4 photographers from each category will be invited to the awards ceremony at the Savoy in London on the 28th January. Only then we will find out the results. The 4 awards are winner, two runners up and People's Choice.
