BP Portrait Award 2019The popular BP Portrait Award returns for a 40th year at the National Portrait Gallery. The highly successful annual open competition, which regularly attracts over 2,500 entries, is one of the most prestigious prizes in the world for portrait painting. The shortlisted portraits are shown alongside around 50 or so selected works in a free exhibition which returns to the National Portrait Gallery for four months this summer. Prizes include the BP Travel Award, BP Young Artist Award, open to 18 to 30 year-olds, and the £35,000 first prize. But this competition is not just about money, it's also about prestige; many previous winners have gone on to gain important commissions. Craig Wylie, for example, who won the award in 2008, was commissioned by the National Portrait Gallery to create a portrait of Dame Kelly Holmes.

About National Portrait Gallery

The National Portrait Gallery houses portraits of significant figures from the late 15th century to the present day. This isn't the place to come for serious works of exceptional artistic merit - the overriding aim of the National Portrait Gallery is to reflect the status of the sitter, not the artist - but where else in London could you hope to find The Beatles, Henry VIII, Sir Richard Branson and JK Rowling all hanging out together? The appeal of this gallery (opened in 1856) rests simply in its comprehensive commemoration of British history from the late 15th century to the present day through the medium of portraiture.
