The BP Travel Award is a given to an artist to enable them to experience working in a different environment on a project related to portraiture.

The BP Travel Award 2017 was won by Casper White for his proposal to create works about music fans in clubs and concert venues in Berlin and Mallorca, representing an often youth-related subculture that is not traditionally recorded in portrait paintings.

The resulting work is currently displayed in Room 33, as part of the BP Portrait Award 2018 exhibition.
