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.
Portrait of Britain is groundbreaking in its scale and its mission. Envisioned as an exhibition for the people, by the people, it is the nation’s biggest photography exhibition and is seen by millions of people across the country. Since its inception in 2016, Portrait of Britain’s following has grown exponentially, and last year’s edition welcomed thousands of entries. With the nation currently at such a crucial point in its history, Portrait of Britain is more relevant than ever – and this year is set to be the biggest edition yet.
The award invites photographers of any level to submit portraits that show the many faces of modern Britain. Now in its fourth instalment, Portrait of Britain 2019 is open for entries.
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.
