Envisioned as an exhibition for the people, by the people, Portrait of Britain is the nation’s biggest photography exhibition seen by millions of people country wide.

PoB invites photographers of any level to submit portraits that capture the many faces of modern Britain. 

In partnership with JCDecaux, the winning photographers will be showcased across a network of digital screens throughout the country, from rail stations and airports, to shopping malls and high streets.  We are also offering winning and shortlisted photographers the chance to have their work featured in a globally-distributed book, published by Hoxton Mini Press. 

Last year’s selected portraits were a testament to the diversity of our country and contemporary photographic talent. See last year’s selected works here and start thinking about your submission!
