Portrait Salon

Open calls | 13 August 2015 - 20 September 2015

Portrait Salon was founded by Carole Evans and James O Jenkins in 2011 as a response to the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize. A form of Salon des Refusés – an exhibition of works rejected from a juried art show – it aims to showcase the best of the rejected images from the Taylor Wessing Prize, which is organised annually by the National Portrait Gallery in London. The NPG Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize is one of the most prestigious photography prizes in the world, attracting entrants from professionals and amateurs alike.

Portrait Salon is now in it’s fifth year and to celebrate we will be exhibiting one print from every photographer that submitted to and was rejected by the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize. Every photographer that enters Portrait Salon 2015 will have one print selected from the portraits they have had rejected by the 2015 Taylor Wessing Prize.

Submissions open on 13 August and run till 20 September 2015.

Our print exhibition will open at 6.30pm on 19th November 2015 at The Embassy Tea Gallery in London and will be accompanied by a new publication that will look back at the past 4 years of Portrait Salon.
