Was your entry to the Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize refused? 5972 others are in the same boat, but Portrait Salon is offering the chance to exhibit your image anyway.
Based on the Salon des Refusés, the 1863 Parisian exhibition that displayed more than 3000 artworks rejected by Salon jurors, Portrait Salon will show some of the images rejected from the National Portrait Gallery's (NPG's) annual portrait prize.
The show is being organised by two London-based portrait photographers, who prefer to remain anonymous but "believe that, out of the 5,973 rejected entries, there must be some good-quality portraits which deserve to be shown".
So far, the Portrait Salon has received about 100 submissions and is calling for more.
To enter, email JPEG images, 1000 pixels on the longest edge, to email@example.com, or visit the Portait Salon online and on Twitter for more information. The venue, date and timing of the exhibition have yet to be confirmed.
