The story behind the portrait… calling all artists!

We’d love to hear how some of the works featured in this year’s Portrait Prize exhibition came to be created.

Is there a story behind yours? Did your work come about because of a significant moment or to mark a particular occasion? If it was commissioned, was there a reason?

If you have a story you’d like to share, then tell us by using the contact form below and we will feature your comments in future blog posts and social media for the exhibition.




There is also a writing workshop at the Portrait Prize exhibition on Monday 7 August, 2 – 4pm, encouraging fictional responses to work on show.

Writers interested in attending should email by August 5 to sign up.
