The Ruth Borchard Self-Portrait Prize celebrates contemporary British and Irish self-portraiture. It offers a unique opportunity for both established and emerging artists to compete for a £10,000 prize, for their work to be purchased by the Ruth Borchard Next Generation Collection and for a long-listed selection of works to be included in a curated, four-month exhibition at King’s Place.

All artists working, living or studying in the UK and Ireland are eligible to enter. Works must be a self-portrait of the artist. This is the only condition for entering the Prize and all variations – figurative or abstract, alone or in a group, from life or from memory – will be accepted.
