Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2020 - call for entries
Entry is now open for the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2020. Open to all, it is the leading international competition, and celebrates and promotes the very best in contemporary portrait photography.
The Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize competition and exhibition is organised by the National Portrait Gallery (NPG) in London.
This year the exhibition will be displayed online, from Tuesday 24 November 2020, in a virtual gallery that replicates the rooms of the NPG. This virtual exhibition will allow the Gallery to reach a wide international audience and ensure that the competition is able to continue as planned during the current Coronavirus pandemic. Online visitors will be able to view the portraits collectively, as well as exploring each individual work in more detail.
To enter the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2020, photographers will be required to upload their image(s) via the website. All images will be viewed by a panel of judges and the entrants who are successful in this round will be invited to deliver their work to a venue in London for the final round of physical judging.
First Prize: £15,000
Deadline for entry: 17.00 on Tuesday 22 September 2020
