British Journal of Photography invites submissions to the 4rd edition of Portrait of Britan, the nation’s biggest photography exhibition seen by millions of people country wide, that shows the many faces of modern Britain.
Portrait of Britain is an award-winning nationwide photography exhibition, run by British Journal of Photography in partnership with JCDecaux. The exhibition celebrates the rich tapestry of people that make up Great Britain, by turning their stories into public art.
This is the largest exhibition of contemporary photography ever held, as much a celebration of photography as it is a celebration of British people, calling for pictures that reflect their unique culture and diversity.
The award invites photographers of any level to submit portraits that show the many faces of modern Britain.
You are welcome to submit pictures from every corner of the UK (England, Scotland, Wales & Northern Ireland) and in every form, from casual snapshots and selfies, to documentary projects. Photographers may submit portraits of family, friends, themselves, or simply people they find interesting.
Entries are open to all people and all interpretations of portraiture, provided images have been taken within the United Kingdom since 1 January 2012 and depict subjects living in the UK (England, Scotland, Wales & Northern Ireland) at the time of the photograph. Portraits may be of individuals or groups of people.
• You may enter as many times as you choose.
• Portraits can be shot using any camera model (film or digital), and images may be portrait, landscape or square in format. Each image can be a maximum of 5MB in size.
• All images must be submitted as JPEG files – any files submitted in any other format (including TIFF, PDF, PSD etc) will be discarded.
• You may submit a short statement for each photograph entered. Statements must be under 1500 characters in length (approximately 200 words), and written in English.
The winners must be available to supply high-res files promptly for publication.
The 100 winning entries will be showcased across JCDecaux’s network of digital Out-of-Home screens throughout the country, from rail stations and airports, to shopping malls and high streets, for one month in September 2019. 200 shortlisted entries will also be featured in the Portrait of Britain book, published by Hoxton Mini Press and distributed worldwide.
