Schweppes Photographic Portrait Prize 2005
Including the Deloitte Award
Interviews by Richard McClure

The Schweppes Photographic Portrait Prize celebrates the vitality and excellence in portrait photography today. In less than three years the prize has grown to become one of the most important platforms for contemporary portrait photographers.

Selected from nearly 8,000 submissions, this book offers a unique opportunity to see an inspiring range of international 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 book accompanies a major exhibition that will tour the UK - London, Aberystwyth, Poole and Manchester - in 2005 and 2006.

The Schweppes Photographic Portrait Prize 2005 accompanies an exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery, London from 9 November 2005 to 12 February 2006; at the Aberystwyth Arts Centre, Aberystwyth, from 19 February to 23 March 2006; at the Lighthouse, Poole Centre for the Arts, Poole from 1 April to 27 May 2006; and at The Lowry, Manchester from June to September 2006.
