Royal Society of Portrait Painters ExhibitionThe country's leading portrait exhibition, the Royal Society of Portrait Painters Exhibition displays painted and drawn portrait submissions by both national and international artists, including high profile commissions and works by artists never before seen. With more than 200 pieces on display, it forms an ideal place for artists to be selected for commissions. This year the exhibition will be drawn from three sources: work by members, the best work chosen from open submission and a gallery of shortlisted works for the new SELF portrait prize, worth 20,000 pounds. Further prizes include the Prince of Wales's Award for Portrait Drawing, the Changing Faces Commission Prize, the de Lazlo Prize for the most outstanding portrait by an artist aged 35 years or under, and the 10,000 pound Ondaatje Prize for the most distinguished painting, one of the most prestigious prizes in the world of portraiture, which also earns the winner the Society's Gold Medal.
