Portrait Salon 2018

17 October 18 press

Stanley’s Post are proud to be continuing their long relationship with Portrait Salon, and are sponsoring the photographic competition again this year. Now in it’s eighth year, for the first time they are accepting rejected work from both the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize organised by the National Portrait Gallery, and The British Journal of Photography’s Portrait of Britain competition. Portrait Salon exists to question the place of competitions within the photographic industry, and their role in determining current trends. By accepting submissions which have been rejected from both Taylor Wessing and Portrait of Britain, the intention is to show that there is top quality photography which is not getting the exposure it deserves. This year there will be no judges; the final selection for our exhibition will be made by the public. Entries can be voted for on the Portrait Salon website, and the images with the most votes will become part of the Portrait Salon 2018 exhibition. The portrait with the most votes will also be announced. The selected images will be shown as a projected exhibition in November at a venue to be confirmed. Go online at Portrait Salonand vote for your favorite.
