Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2013
The Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize is the leading international competition for contemporary photographic portraits. The competition is open to everyone aged 18 and over from around the world.
Organised by the National Portrait Gallery in London, the Prize has established a reputation for its diversity of photographic styles submitted by a range of photographers, from gifted amateurs and photography students to established professionals.
In the Prize’s search for excellence, photographers are encouraged to interpret ‘portrait’ in its widest sense of ‘photography concerned with portraying people with an emphasis on their identity as individuals.’

USAGE RIGHTS: The photographer or their representatives agree that the photographs submitted may be exhibited as part of the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize exhibition at any venue.
The photographer or their representatives agree unconditionally that the National Portrait Gallery may reproduce any exhibited photographs for the purposes of marketing, promotion, discussion and education in direct connection with the Photographic Portrait Prize and exhibition, in all media worldwide including the exhibition catalogue and subsequent publications, posters, postcards, the Internet and within television documentaries, and may license these specific, limited rights to others only for the same purposes.
The Gallery also reserves the right to reproduce selected images for core non-commercial purposes, for example in the Past Exhibitions page of the Gallery website, indefinitely, as a public record.
The photographer will be credited for the use of their work, wherever practicable, as the Photographic Portrait Prize exists in part to raise the profile of the exhibiting artists.
