THE RUTH BORCHARD PRIZE 2017 IS NOW CLOSED FOR ENTRIES. WE WILL INFORM ALL APPLICANTS WHETHER OR NOT THEIR SELF-PORTRAIT HAS BEEN SELECTED FOR THE EXHIBITION ON WEDNESDAY 26 APRIL.
Celebrating contemporary British and Irish self-portraiture, the Ruth Borchard Self-Portrait Prize offers a unique opportunity for new and established artists alike to compete for a £10,000 prize, and the chance for their work to be purchased for the Ruth Borchard Next Generation Collection. 2017 will be the fourth edition of the biennial Prize, and the fourth exhibition of the 120 long-listed works at Kings Place.
All artists working or living in the UK and Ireland, of any age, are eligible to enter their self-portrait into the Prize. Works must be a self-portrait of the artist, but this may be alone or as part of a group, from life, from memory, from a photograph, figurative or abstract.
