The RSPCA Young Photographer Awards (YPA) is one of the most prestigious photography competitions solely for under 18s in the UK.
The competition aims to recognise and reward the talent of our young photographers and to encourage young people to appreciate the wonders of the animal kingdom.
YPA People’s Choice Award
Ten fantastic photos from the Pet Personalities category of the RSPCA Young Photographer Awards 2012 were selected by our judging panel out of thousands of entries. The online survey was promoted here on the RSPCA website, as well as on Facebook and Twitter.
The public voted in their hundreds and Arianna Ware, aged 15 of Risca, South Wales was crowned the winner with her heart-warming photo of Sandy the dog entitled 'Say cheese!'.
