Visitors' Choice

Every year the BP Portrait Award Visitors’ Choice offers exhibition visitors the opportunity to vote for their favourite portrait in the show. This year 24,883 votes were cast between 14 June and 10 September via screens outside the exhibition and on the website.

The overall winner was An Angel at My Table by Miriam Escofet which received 1,942 votes. In second place was Portrait of Neema Tambo by Gaela Erwin (1,420 votes) and the third was Bruce Robinson, writer and director by Alastair Adams (1,393 votes). All portraits were voted for at least once.

Everyone who voted in the Visitors Choice has the chance to win a Rembrandt Excellent Oil Colour Box Set worth £995 and there will be three runners-up prizes of an Artists’ Oil Colour Bamboo Box Sets worth £100.

Although the winners have been announced, you can still cast your vote for your favourite portrait and enter the prize draw until the exhibition closes on 23 September.
