Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2021

Entry is now open for the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2021. Open to all, it is the leading international competition, and celebrates and promotes the very best in contemporary portrait photography.

This year the exhibition will take place at the new arts hub Cromwell Place, London, from 10 November 2021 – 2 January 2022, while the National Portrait Gallery building in St Martin’s Place is closed until 2023 for major redevelopment works

First Prize: £15,000

Applications must be received in advance by 17.00 on Tuesday 8 June 2021

To enter the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2021, 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.

In addition, the judges, at their discretion, will award cash prizes to one or more shortlisted photographers.

The prize winners and exhibition selection is judged on an equal and anonymous basis. In 2020 the exhibition headed online for the first time. It featured 54 portraits from 37 artists and was viewed by over 135,000 users.
