The is an annual competition hosted by the National Portrait Gallery; it has been running for thirty-four years with a £30,000 prize up for grabs. In the beginning, the competition was only open to residents in the UK, but now it is a worldwide. This makes the competition more interesting because the entries are more diverse and in a myriad of styles.

Up until the 15th September, the National Portrait Gallery is showcasing the top fifty-five innovative portraits from around the world. These will include the winning entry, Pieter, by Susanne du Toit, as well as entries for the BP Young Artist 2013 and winners of the BP Travel Award 2012.

Once you have visited, you will be able to make your own verdict abut which was the best portrait. Vote through the screen outside the exhibition and you will be entered into a prize draw for an artist oil set worth £345.

If your kids are budding painters, then they have the opportunity to apply for the : The Next Generation . It is a free three day summer school that gives artists between the ages of 14-19 the chance to shine. The deadline for applications is the 30th July, and classes will start from the 14th August.
