The Biennial Ruth Borchard Self Portrait Prize 2019

Website: http://ruthborchard.org.uk/self-portrait-prize/self-portrait-prize-2019/

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 Piano Nobile 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. The administration fee is £30 and will be payable at the end of the submission process. The Ruth Borchard Collection and the Self-Portrait Prize are funded by a charitable foundation and the administration fee goes a small way to covering the cost of running the application process for the Prize.
