The Best In Show event was a huge succes, thanks everyone for a fantastic day and culmination to the project.

A great day for the dogs and the humans, with over 50 very well behaved dogs…and many more well behaved humans!

Performance Space went beyond the call of duty with the bar and BBQ, including homemade chickpea patties…

The projections were well scrutinised and admired..

Tess DeQuincey performed dogsbodyweather with her 12 paws and 2 feet, and really went to the dogs…

The Best In Show prizes for dogography were awarded by our esteemed judges, though in my books all of the photos are winners.
