Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2014, National Portrait Gallery

The Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2014 is a unique opportunity to see sixty new portraits by some of the most exciting contemporary photographers from around the world.

The selected images, many of which will be on display for the first time, explore both traditional and original approaches to the photographic portrait through intimate images of friends and family alongside revealing portraits of famous faces.

This year the competition attracted over 4,000 submissions in the form of editorial, advertising and fine art prints and the selected works in the exhibition include the four prize winners as well as the winner of the John Kobal New Work Award. In addition, one of those to have work selected is Shutter Hub member Sian Davey, and we intend to bring you more on that in the near future!

The exhibition will take place at the National Portrait Gallery from13 November 2014 to 22 February 2015. Further details here.
