The £12,000 prize goes to Spencer Murphy for his photo of jockey Katie Walsh.
The image, picked from 5,410 entires,  was taken during an advertising shoot for Channel 4’s The Original Extreme Sport Campaign.
About the photo Murphy has said “I was keen to include Katie. I wanted to show both the femininity and the toughness of spirit she requires to compete against the best riders in one of the most demanding disciplines in horse racing.”

You can see the winning image along with the 60 other chosen entries at The National Portrait Gallery till 9 February 2104.
