Hector by Anoush Abrar – £3,000 second prize winner. Abrar’s portrait is inspired by Caravaggio, particularly his painting Sleeping Cupid from 1608.

Amira and her Children by Ivor Prickett – £1,000 fourth prize winner. Prickett took this photograph in northern Iraq in September 2014 when he was working on an assignment for UNHCR. Prickett says: ‘I met Amira and her family in the tent they were living in at the Baharka camp near Erbil; they had fled their village near Mosul after Isis had taken control of the area. As they became more comfortable with me being there, they really started to express their closeness and became very tactile. It was a beautiful moment to witness in the midst of such a difficult situation’. (Photo by Ivor Prickett/Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize 2015)

DCN Video Pick: Katy Perry - Daisies by Vallée Duhamel // For Katy Perry’s new single ‘Daisies’, we imagined a world that illustrate the perseverance of a girl who overcomes the obstacles getting in her way. This is represented by a rock that keeps invading her house, transforming it into different surreal spaces. It finally culminates with the character rising above it all and coming out stronger on the other side. The video was created thanks to the talent of more than 40 artists from around the world, all working remotely from home. Follow us @valleeduhamel on Instagram for exclusive behind the scenes in the upcoming days!

We Regret To Inform You That Lace Men’s Shorts Are Here For The Summer

Sometimes, it seems like the entire purpose of the Internet is for companies to push ludicrous products on an unsuspecting public in the name of “fashion”, and then for sites like ours to make fun of those products. We’re sorry to tell you that this item of men’s fashion now exists. Where to buy this atrocity? You’ll have to go to Hologram City to do that, but we strongly suggest that you don’t.
