Call For Entries

The National Portrait Gallery in London has issued a call for entries to the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2012. The competition is open to anyone aged 18 and over from around the world. Applications must be received in advance, either online or by post, by 23.59 on Monday 9 July. Above is last year's winning photo by Jooney Woodward, showing 13-year-old Harriet Power holding her cavy Gentleman Jack in the guinea pig judging area at the Royal Welsh Show. CLICK to visit the NPG Photo Prize website and watch out for two more of my favourites: Tatiana and Belene by Yann Gross (2011), which shows a rare flash of humour, and Keira Knightley by Michael Birt (2010).

Great article Coxsoft, thank you very much! Nice to know it's open to all. However, if that won it last year they need their eyes testing because I have taken better photographs and it's boring. Maybe the others that you listed were better and they felt something towards the pet. It was really not good enough to win and it didn't have anything special. Shame.

It's a terrific portrait photo, my choice for winner.
