‘Contemporary portraits’ is a contest run by the National Portrait Gallery in London, who are eager to see the Photocrowd community’s best and most creative interpretations of the theme.
The National Portrait Gallery is running this contest in tandem with their prestigious Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2017. By entering ‘Contemporary portraits’ you can win some great prizes, however your submission will not be entered into the main awards. You can find out more on entering this world-famous award, where you could win £15,000 and have your work displayed at the National Portrait Gallery, by clicking here.
The expert's winner and the crowd's winner will both receive a prize pack including tickets to the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2017.
The expert's winner (decided by former Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize winner Spencer Murphy) and the crowd's winner will both receive:
1 x Pair of tickets to Taylor Wessing Prize 2017
Catalogue for Taylor Wessing 2016
Catalogue for Taylor Wessing 2015
Every photo submitted will be available for the crowd to rate once the submissions period has ended. You can see all the images uploaded to a contest, but will need to rate them to see how they’re ranked once the rating period begins.
Some contests on Photocrowd also have a judge. After the submission period closes the judge chooses their favourite images and writes some image reviews. The crowd and judge results will be announced on the same day.
