Entry is now open for the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2018, the leading international photographic portrait competition, which celebrates and promotes the very best in contemporary portrait photography. Organised by the National Portrait Gallery, London, the Prize has established a reputation for creativity and excellence, with works submitted by a range of photographers, from leading professionals to talented amateurs and the most exciting emerging artists.
The winner of the competition will receive £15,000. In addition the judges, at their discretion, will award cash prizes to one or more shortlisted photographers.
The prize winners and exhibition selection is judged on an equal and anonymous basis. In 2017 the exhibition featured over fifty works and was seen by over 40,000 people at the National Portrait Gallery. All selected works will appear in the exhibition catalogue.
The competition is open to everyone aged 18 and over from around the world. Photographers are encouraged to interpret ‘portrait’ in its widest sense of ‘photography concerned with portraying people with an emphasis on their identity as individuals.’
