BP Portrait Award2015 marks the BP Portrait Award's 36th year at the National Portrait Gallery. A highly successful annual event, which last year attracted 2,377 entries from 71 different countries, the open competition is one of the most prestigious prizes in the world for portrait painting. The three shortlisted portraits are shown alongside around 55 selected works in a free exhibition which returns to the National Portrait Gallery for three months this summer. Worth £30,000 to the winner, this competition is not just about money, it's also about prestige; many previous winners have gone on to gain important commissions. Craig Wylie, 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.
