Until 31 March 2021

The Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2020 is the leading international competition, open to all, which celebrates and promotes the very best in contemporary portrait photography from around the world.

Showcasing talented young photographers, gifted amateurs and established professionals, the competition, showcases a diverse range of images and tells the often fascinating stories behind the creation of the works, from formal commissioned portraits to more spontaneous and intimate moments capturing friends and family.

This year the exhibition was displayed online, in a virtual gallery that replicates the rooms of the National Portrait Gallery. Our online exhibition allowed the Gallery to reach a wide international audience and ensure that the competition was able to continue as planned during the Coronavirus pandemic. Online visitors were able to view the portraits collectively, as well as exploring each individual work in more detail.
