The Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize is an international competition that 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.

To enter the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2021photographers 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.

The photographs must be portraits. ‘Portrait’ may be interpreted in its widest sense, of ‘photography concerned with portraying people with an emphasis on their identity as individuals’. 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.

Deadline: 17:00 on Tuesday 8 June 2021 (London time)
