A New Dog Photography Challenge – For A New Year!
The next round of Unleashed Challenges are called Emerge and there are 12 brand new challenges and I’m looking for the right dogs to participate.
Are you ready for a new set of dog photography challenges?
2022’s Embark Dog Photography Challenges
In 2022 I set out on a Herculean task – participating in Unleashed’s Embark dog photography challenges.
As one of hundreds of incredibly talented pet photographers across the globe, we were presented with 12 challenge briefs – each a different theme to create an image, submit by the deadline, and compete for a Top 10 spot. While the primary goal was competition with myself – pushing myself creatively and improving the craft of pet photography – the pet photographers also competed with each other.
Each challenge was judged by two of the world’s leading pet photographers with decades in business, a long list of awards from international photography competitions, and some big name commercial clients (let’s just say you’ve seen their work on numerous occasions).
In each challenge you could receive a Top 20 or a Top 10 placement – as well as feedback on your work and suggestions for improvement.
In the end I finished with a “Highly Commended Portfolio” highlighting work of a professional standard for my final 12 submissions:
- 4 Top 10 images
- 1 Top 20 image.
