The critically acclaimed award returns

Encouraging the development of contemporary self-portraiture the £10,000 Ruth Borchard Prize and establishment of the Next Generation Collection is intended to reflect and celebrate the traditions which inform the Original Collection.


Maintaining Ruth’s efforts to acquire self-portraits from renowned and emerging artists the prize is open to all artists. Reflective of the diversity of contemporary practices there are no restrictions on size or media and no expected form or style.The only requirement is that the work must be a self-portrait. Historically entries have included both abstract and figurative works, the topic of self approached in isolation or in a group and, via a range of media; including but not exclusive to, paint, drawing, digital art, textiles, sculpture, photography, ceramics and collage.
