Exhibition 2012

The Prize

Entry has now closed for the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2013, the leading international photographic portrait competition, which celebrates and promotes the very best in contemporary portrait photography. The competition was open to everyone aged 18 and over from around the world.

Organised by the National Portrait Gallery in London, the Prize has established a reputation for its diversity of photographic styles submitted by a range of photographers, from gifted amateurs and photography students to established professionals.

In the Prize’s search for excellence, photographers are encouraged to interpret ‘portrait’ in its widest sense of ‘photography concerned with portraying people with an emphasis on their identity as individuals.’

The Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2013 exhibition will run at the Gallery from 14 November 2013 to 9 February 2014 before touring to two venues around the UK.
