Taylor Wessing

"Taylor Wessing is pleased to sponsor this year’s prize as it builds on our long-standing relationship with the National Portrait Gallery and in particular our sponsorship of The World’s Most Photographed and Face of Fashion exhibitions in 2005 and 2006.

The Photographic Portrait Prize is a great forum to encourage and cultivate new talent; an area that Taylor Wessing strongly supports. It works hand in hand with our goals to encourage the development of talent and to strive for excellence.

On behalf of the partners at Taylor Wessing, I would like to thank the National Portrait Gallery for involving us in this project. Finally I hope that you enjoy the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Exhibition 2008, a celebration of innovation within the genre of portraiture today."
