About

British Journal of Photography’s Portrait of Britain 2017 is now open for entries.

Portrait of Britain is an award-winning annual exhibition which showcases the many faces of modern Britain. Organised by British Journal of Photography in partnership with JCDecaux, it is the biggest ever outdoor showcase of contemporary photography.

We want to see the people of our country through your eyes. Whether you’re shooting family, friends, yourself or simply those you find interesting, we welcome pictures from every corner of Britain, from casual snapshots and selfies to documentary projects and street photography. We want to see portraits that reflect the unique heritage and diversity of our country.

BJP’s editorial team will select 100 winning portraits for a nationwide public exhibition to be showcased on JCDecaux digital screens. Visible on high streets, roadsides and in transport hubs across the length and breadth of the country for the month September 2017, the exhibition will be seen by an audience of millions.

With national exposure, Portrait of Britain offers the chance for professional and non-professional photographers to present their work to the broadest possible audience.
