Portrait of Katie wins €14k prize

A MUD-splattered and tired Katie Walsh hardly expected to win any awards for this face.

But even when she isn't trying, the jump jockey seems to have a winning formula.

A portrait of the Herald columnist has won a top prize in the UK for a photographer.

The photograph, by Spencer Murphy, was taken at Kempton Park as part of a campaign advertising Channel 4's coverage of racing. The photographer accepted the €14,000 Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize at an event at the National Portrait Gallery in London.
