The annual Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize, a leading international photographic portrait competition, celebrates and promotes the best in contemporary portrait photography. The Prize has established a reputation for creativity and excellence with works submitted by a range of photographers - both leading professionals and talented amateurs - and the most exciting emerging artists. This year, those selected for inclusion were chosen from 5,717 submissions entered by 2,423 photographers from 66 countries. One of the prize winners was Catherine Hyland whose Maddens Wind Farm from the series Wait-and-See Pudding with Patience Sauce was taken on the small Caribbean island of Nevis.

The exhibition of fifty-nine works that accompanies the Prize is being held at the National Portrait Gallery, London from 16 November 2017 to 8 February 2018.
