THE RUTH BORCHARD PRIZE 2019 WILL OPEN FOR ENTRIES IN JANUARY 2019. PLEASE CHECK BACK FOR UPDATES.
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. 2019 will be the fifth edition of the biennial Prize, and the fifth exhibition of the 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.
