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 all visitors also have the opportunity to enter a prize draw to win one of four artist oil painting sets courtesy of Cass Art.

One winner will receive 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 £110.

You can vote and enter the draw through the screens outside the exhibition or on the website page for each exhibitor here.

Entries received by the end of Sunday 6 October 2019 will be counted towards the Visitors’ Choice announcement. All entries after this date will still be valid for the prize draw.

The three most popular portraits will be available on the website from 7 October 2019.
