And the winner is… a guinea pig! And its owner.

Jooney Woodward, a photographer, took the picture of the girl and her pet and said about it:

"I found her image immediately striking with her long, red hair and white stewarding coat.

She is holding her own guinea pig called Gentleman Jack, named after the Jack Daniel's whisky box in which he was given to her. Using natural light from a skylight above, I took just three frames and this image was the first.

I don't mess around with Photoshop so what you see is what you get. Enhanced images can portray a false sense of reality, whereas my work celebrates the people and places as they appear every day."

The director of the National Portrait Gallery said the portrait was a:

"[…] brilliant, empathetic study of young woman."

The photo beat out over 6,000 other photos to claim the $19,000 first place prize.

It's a good photo but we just mainly like it for the giant guinea pig. LOLz!
