As you are likely aware, the human story is actually the history of the competition between cats and dogs. A picture of a dog won in 2021, and cats are retaliating this year. The overall winner of the 2022 competition is Kenichi Morinaga’s photo “Boom Boom,” which was taken in Fukuoka, Japan.
Kenichi specializes in wedding photography as well as cat photography, however, the winning photograph was seized by chance. “Cats just happened to collide on the fence by accident,” the winner explains. “It turned out to be a very funny moment, just like in cartoons.”
“Photos taken by accident usually look better every time because you introduce that element of chance which is so special and unique”, says Michelle Wood, a co-organizer of the contest, “However, some staged photos are also hilarious, after all when photographing animals – you never know how they are going to act and that is part of the fun.”
“Last year we had lots of dogs and puppies, but this year cats and kittens have been so popular. We are not sure why but delighted to have our first cat Over All Winner of the competition!”, Michelle also comments.
