A unique opportunity to view fifty-seven portraits by some of the most exciting and contemporary photographers from around the world.

Showcasing talented young photographers, gifted amateurs and established professionals, the competition features 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.

The images explore both traditional and contemporary approaches to the photographic portrait whilst capturing a range of characters, moods and locations. The exhibition features all of the prestigious prize winners including the winner of the £15,000 first prize.
