"The Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize continues to inspire photographers throughout the world and we're looking forward to seeing the new entries this year. For many years, working together with the National Portrait Gallery, we have helped to create a platform that showcases the best in photographic talent, and staging this year’s exhibition at a new gallery space at Cromwell Place will be a fillip in what has been a challenging year."
