Leon Steele has won the 2000 John Kobal Photographic Portrait Award for his portrait, Brendan’s Back, a picture of his nine-year-old nephew taken on a family holiday. His prize is a cheque for £2500. Judges felt Steele’s was an emotional and powerful image that conveyed a lot about the person portrayed. Runner up was Jane Chilvers for her portrait Twins and there were special mentions for Cliff Bevan and Harry Borden.
