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. From an initial 3000 entrants 60 portraits are displayed at London’s National Portrait Gallery until the end of the year. It is hoped that up to 200,000 visitors will attend the exhibition.
