Photographic Portrait Prize 2006
Including the Deloitte Award
Article by Jenny Dyson and interviews by Richard McClure

The Photographic Portrait Prize celebrates the vitality and excellence in portrait photography today. This prize is one of the most important platforms for contemporary portrait photographers internationally.

Selected from over 6,000 submissions, this book offers a unique opportunity to see an inspiring range of portraits. The selection of photographs is all about people - people who appear intriguing, defiant or relaxed - and the outstanding skills of the photographers, whose intelligence and diligence enables them to capture not only a moment in time, but also convey something of the spirit of those photographed.

Fully illustrated in colour throughout, the book features all the selected entries from this year's competition, including the prize-winners.

The Photographic Portrait Prize 2006 accompanies an exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery, London from 8 November 2006 to 18 February 2007 and Ferens Art Gallery, Hull from July-August 2007.
