The Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize is the leading international photographic portrait competition, celebrating and promoting the very best in contemporary portrait photography.
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, London.
