The Portrait Award, which celebrates its twenty-fifth year of sponsorship by BP in 2014, showcases the most outstanding and innovative new portraits from around the world. From informal and personal studies of friends and family to revealing paintings of famous faces, the exhibition features a variety of styles and approaches to the contemporary painted portrait. The fifty-five portraits on display, selected from a record-breaking 2,377 entries, include the three shortlisted artists as well as the winners of the BP Young Artist 2014 and the BP Travel Award 2013.

Now in its thirty-fifth consecutive year at the National Portrait Gallery, the Portrait Award is the most prestigious international portrait painting competition and the free exhibition continues to be an unmissable highlight of the annual art calendar.
