The Awards

The winner of the competition will receive £15,000. 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 2017 the exhibition featured over fifty works and was seen by over 40,000 people at the National Portrait Gallery. All selected works will appear in the exhibition catalogue. Previous catalogues can be purchased from the Gallery shop npg.org.uk/shop.
