22 June – 24 September 2017
The BP Portrait Award 2017. See the selected artworks here. The winner of the £30,000 First Prize will be announced at a ceremony at the Gallery on Tuesday 20 June 2017.
Selected from 2,580 entries by artists from 87 countries around the world, the BP Portrait Award 2017 represents the very best in contemporary portrait painting. From informal and personal studies of friends and family to revealing images of famous faces, the exhibition always features a variety of styles and approaches to the contemporary painted portrait. Now in its thirty-eighth year at the National Portrait Gallery and twenty-eighth year of sponsorship by BP, the Award continues to be an unmissable highlight of the annual art calendar.
Ambassadors will meet at Wellcome Collection once a month on a Thursday evening, 17.00–19.00.
The Ambassadors Panel will plan their activities, but these might involve:
Giving advice on our future event programming
Supporting our current events
Planning your own events for 14-to-19-year-olds
Organising training and work experience opportunities
Membership will last for one year, with applications for the next year opening in autumn 2017.
